thank you for dropping by to read
my Friday Rocking post when
I end my week thinking happy thoughts :o)
The sun came out yesterday
and I really enjoyed sitting in the sun
while I had my lunchtime sandwich.
Luke, who is working in a barber's shop,
is being used as a guinea pig for one of the
stylists who enjoys doing hair 'sculpture'.
Last week Luke was wearing music all
over his head. This week, stars.
Luke has always been rather a shy lad
so it makes me happy for him to have the
confidence to wear his hair like this and
cope with the various reactions that it gets.
I returned to Zumba this week,
having had a few weeks off
(I'd simply run out of excuses!).
It was hard work but great fun.
Her miaow's are getting louder and louder
and boy, does she have a lot to say!
I did this photo collage of Cally-Cat
running up and down the stairs.
She gallops around the house now!
Remember, this is the pathetic creature
that couldn't get herself through a cat flap
when she first came home to us.
I can REALLY RECOMMEND this stuff;
It's for dogs and cats,
and has made all the difference to Cally.
Rosie Mae has the same stuff in tablet form
and again, it's been great for her creaky old bones.
It's my DH's Grant's birthday tomorrow.
His 'special dinner' request is steak and chips,
which is easy for me to do so I'm happy too.
Oh yes, and of course there'll be CAKE!
We're going to take Rosie Mae for a walk this
afternoon and, while we're walking,
hopefully make a final decision on
whether or not I can give up a day
a week at work.
Keep your fingers crossed for me
(he'd love for me to give up work altogether
but someone's got to pay for my ink habit!).
That's all for now, folks!
I'll be posting this with Virginia
and later on I'll catch up with my fellow Rockettes.
Wishing you a great weekend.
theme this week is 'Books'
so I made a bookmark out of a book spine.
The book, a French-English Dictionary,
was in a bad state of repair (missing the back cover)
so it was a good way of using what was left.
It was quite a challenge keeping the collage flat
and to not add bumpy embellishments,
so I added texture with the gold mesh.
OK, who knows what
'ma signet' means?
(Susie, please tell me I got it right,
I looked it up in a translator thing!).
I'd better go now,
I'm running behind with my Darcy's postcards
(I've got Cuba and Switzerland to do)
I've got to finish my March calendar pages
I've got to get on with my next
Gauche Alchemy project.
