Hello and Happy Friday to you.
This week's list of smiles starts now....
Late summer weather,
crisp and dewy in the mornings
and warm and sunny in the afternoons.
Getting-stuff-done kind of weather.
I'm becoming brave in my old age :)
I have evicted several spiders from the house,
where in the past I would have placed a glass
over them for Grant to deal with when he came
in from work.
One of the blighters,
an 8-legged genetically pumped up monster,
was fighting with me as Hope was screaming,
"Look at it's jaws!!"
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it had JAWS!
I feel bad chucking them out into the garden
because they are house spiders that want to
live in the house BUT it's us humans that
pay the mortgage and we don't want lodgers.
Rosie Mae and her wet dog smell -
they could bottle it and I'd buy it!
She's been going on a digging spree
this week and we have several deep holes
surrounded by wet earth in various parts
of the garden. Luckily we didn't have a
beautiful garden to start with!
Grant, who has a weekend off -
the first weekend off he's had for,
well, I can't remember how long.
I'll be cooking a roastie on Sunday :)
Electric blanket bargains in Boots
for Luke and Hope.
super-dooper timer ones with
adjustable temperature dials.
They will be as snug as bugs in rugs.
That's about it for this week.
I'll post this with Virginia and
visit the other Rockers later.
I've (finally) finished
my September pages for
I don't love them, but I couldn't improve them
no matter how much I fiddled with them
so I'm calling it a day
(half way through the month!).
(Please note: hand carved square day stamp!)
I was trying to depict the fading colours
of Summer that are seen in September,
along with blackberry juice and the
beginning of Autumn's leaf fall.
I've used words from a favourite
Neil Diamond song of mine,
And lastly and maybe leastly,
some Mail Art I sent in for
a Mail Art exhibition in USA.
I used the same image and sentiment as
the 4 x 6 and Mail Art I sent to Jewels.
Ok, enough already, I'm going!
Thank you for hanging around,
wishing you a lovely weekend :)
