Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


A Monday, somewhere at the end of January ...

Morning Monday,

What do you have in store for me today?

There is a strange light in the sky, no it is not the sun but the clouds appear to have a pale luminescent creamy glow making everything almost sepia. The birds are quietly twittering in the hedges and trees and although I can not see them, I know, as does the next door's cat, that they are there.

In my ears I have an 'epic sound track' pumping out stirring and positive music. I have a sleeping dog on one numb but lovely and warm foot. The other foot is partly jealous because it is cold and partly relieved as it is not being squashed!

There is a pile of paintings in various stages of completion and some waiting to be started next to me, so I better 'get to it'...

Thank you every one who was involved with January's photo-hunt - as I mentioned before, February is slightly different. It is 'Hawthorn's Heart--thon' where I post a heart themed picture and waffle on a bit each day until the 14th. This year I am not alone, Susan from Granny Smith's Quilting and Jak from Jak's Tales have are joining in. 

I will be adding a semi-permanent link on the side of my page as from the 1st February so please pop over and see what hearty happenings they have been up to. If you are mad enough to want to join in too (bet you have one or two hearts and hearty stories around your home) let me know and I will add your name to the link list too.

Here is to a little bit of  LVE - the world certainly needs it now more than ever.♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 

And the photos? Well, in start contrast to today's sepia tinted damp day, yesterday was crisp and icy.  Those dramatic 'feather and mountain-scapes' were on Himself's windscreen.

Well Monday, 
been nice chatting with you, 
I must get on... but first, 
I shall put the kettle on,
then bring on the day!

I am ready.


  1. Oh Monday...what a reputation you have...the start for many of a long working week. Monday I will try to love you, and if I can catch up on all my marking by your end I truly will love you! ❤️

  2. Here's to " L♥VE " . . . the world is going completely insane (or at least it seems to me like parts of it is).

    Our planet and its people need all the L♥VE we can get right now ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

  3. I'm ready to join in the Heartthon! I easily found enough hearts in our house to photograph plus a quick delve through the archives!

  4. Sometime I feel surreal sitting reading about your Monday whilst eating breakfast on Tuesday morning.(giggle). I'm ready for the heartathon & never realised just how many heart "bits" I have around the home. It will be a bit of fun & maybe we can spread the love far & wide & maybe help the world be a better place, (just dreaming.) See you tomorrow for the 1st which is also my little brother's birthday. Take care.

  5. Yes, I too was amazed how many hearts I found for a non heart collecting person. We are only a few miles away from Hawthorn but our Monday was nothing like hers. It was grey and misty and dark indoors. Clouds did clear later but all in all it was rather a blue (grey) Monday!

  6. Hope you had a hearty Monday! Your photos of the ice are incredible!
