I was out walking, wrapped up against a biting north easterly wind, from Siberia apparently, when I came to our nearest wooded area. This winter bleakness has it's own beauty but come Spring it will look so fresh and new. If we get snow it will have an altogether different beauty of course.
January for us is quite a quiet time and I like it that way.
Apart from regular committments I do not make any arrangements. If something comes up then that is fine but I don't go looking for it.
I like to do a little catching up and de-cluttering ready for spring cleaning.
I have this week been sorting lots of papers, the kind that just get put aside for some future date. The benefit of leaving this chore so long is that most can get thrown away as they are no longer relevant.
I have also been updating address lists on Excell and cleaning months worth of rubber stamps from card making.
I have also begun trying to replenish my much diminished stock of cards. I don't have to tell you why I have not been keeping my stocks up.
Printing and transferring photos to C.D.'s in another behind job, not to mention writing.You know the sort of thing, too many to mention really.
Concerning blogging,I forgot to mention that before Christmas I telephoned Marion in Wales.It was such fun to have yet another chat with a dear friend made in cyberspace.
Also I was approached last week and asked if I would be willing to have one of my photos published in a book. As it would be credited to me I agreed.The book is all about safe places to swim in England in fresh water. My photo of Ulting Church on the banks of the Chelmer Navigation Canal is going to be used.I will post on it when I receive a free copy in the Summer. Blogging is certainly interesting.
