Two New Creations

My Creations are not Zentangles

Im not too sure just what my patterns are called, guess they are just my doodling :).  My  first experience with what I do came about when I attended an Art and Design course more years ago than I care to think about.  We were given a collection of different items to draw a rough outline of and then fill with various patterns of our own devising.  Says a lot about my age that we drew in the patterns with a mapping pen with a nib and used black ink :)  Unfortunately I dont still have the piece as I loaned it to a Teacher friend as inspiration for her Art class lesson and sadly it was never returned.

I have found Zentangles

I have resisted getting into these for quite a while but I have now fallen. Have absolutely no idea what is right or wrong but seeing as Im not playing for sheep stations Im guessing that as long as I am happy with my 'doodles' that is all that matters. I am currently doing samplers of various patterns.  Made a picture from a 'tangle' that I drew and turned it into a card.  It is most definitely not perfect but at least I have made a start. :)  This is just for you Carole

The very last picture of my dear old Sheba taken not long before the Vet arrived.  She was comfortable on her bed and refused to lift her head for the photo

Just Found My Blog Again :)

It has been such a busy, sad year that I have hardly had time to do anything apart from run around after people and try to keep myself semi sane.   Hopefully the worst is now passed but I wont be relaxing any time soon as evil people just never rest and Im sure the hiatus just means that the person in question is hatching yet more plots to make the lives of those around a misery.
I have been busy making my Christmas cards actually a month or so in advance which is a first for me.  Just have to get them into envelopes now and take out a small bank loan to pay for postage.  Still that is what I like to do so Im really not complaining.  I might even get to actually upload some images when I get time.
Yesterday was truly the pits we had to have our dear old doggy companion of nearly 14yrs put to sleep so things feel very strange and empty.  Her sister is actually coping very well (for the moment at least) better than us if the truth be told.  Just hope she keeps it up.

Cooler Today

Today has been a very quiet one.  I overdid my activity yesterday and feel exhausted today after working all day yesterday in the heat.  Thank goodness it was cooler today. Took some quick photos this morning of some of my Lilium but as yet I havent resized them, will try to get to it tomorrow so that I can put some up here.

Hot Day Definitely an Indoor Day

I am in recovery mode from all the stress and rushing about pre and post Christmas.  Today is a rest day to do a little of what I please.  It is really hot and horrible outdoors so I dont need to feel guilty about lurking inside with the fan going and playing on the computer.
I have gone back to square one with my new eating regime to recover from the overindulgence of Christmas goodies.  Hopefully I will feel less uncomfortable very soon. :)
