tuesday post

sometimes the things that look the hardest
are in fact
very easy
it's just a matter of seeing what's there and figuring it all out
even easier
following what is written
or told
or shown

this square
 is done in four parts
each part 
is very simple to do
put them all together
you have a whole

thank you for all the sweet words that have come this way in the last few days
via here and there and everywhere!!!!
you know who you are and each one of you is very special
I would miss this strange but wonderful thing that we have here
and I won't be going just yet
 I guess

and if you want to know how to make the square above.....

whoever made this into a bedspread
is a heroine

a Monday post.....

some of you will remember that when we were here last
well. last before last...

the work du jour 
was the mohair shawl
it's finished
so I took a picture
but boo humbug ewww yuck...
no light


out we went into the sunlight and brightness
e voila
lace in the sunshine
ain't she purdy????

can you get your head around sights like this
it's already ...that time again
this was a fast one wasn't it???

:}  :}  :}

and for those of you who said you missed this
(and you know who you are!!!xxx)
well here it is again
still there
a little worse for wear
the water level came back up a bit 
thanks to the storm we had last week
but we could use lots more
I know
some of you have had enough 
but we haven't
the geese were off somewhere else
and the ducks were too far away to be able to see them properly
but we have a few who come by every so often
not like they used to though
it's a beautiful autumn day here

 and blue
 and breezy

 so am I
hope you are too

  • "Everything will be all right in the end.
     If it's not all right, then it's not the end..."
    (the best exotic marigold hotel)

    I was thinking maybe it was the end
    of blogging
    having a blog
    being a blogger
    thinking of posts and taking photos
    and then
    but maybe not
    well not yet
    some have written to ask if all is 
    it is
    just about
    I have just felt the need 
    to be quiet
    so I have been
    but I do think that the time of blogging is drawing to an end
    so many have gone already
    and so many lie still and quiet
    some only post once a week now
    it seems the time for
    has come
    so many blogs have moved there and even "shops"
    but I still haven't figured that one out
    I don't need to know what you ate for dinner
    or what you plan to eat for dinner
    and Instagram
     is just gloomy and dark
    with all those weird and annoying photo edits
    so I'll be back soon
    if anyone even gives a twopenny curse after all this time


    I did just watch the movie that quote up there is from
    it was sweet
    it was OK
    it was predictable
    but I enjoyed it
    so many good actors
    it was hard to be a complete flop 
    so hang on a bit longer and I'll be back with

    ))))))((((((  NOTHING   )))))(((((((

    so all will be well and back to normal around here
    I know how most of you are as I see you in the various places we frequent
    but how the hell are the rest of you
    one reason I haven't shut all this up is that there is still a lot of traffic
    flying in from all over
    find it hilarious that I haven't done anything in weeks and the numbers keep going up

    maybe I should stay quiet more often
