Winter Bluez 2 collage

Woke up this morning...well that might have been the mistake right there! Snow...hoooours later, snow. Still going-must be the duracel Snow God up there today. Peck peck peck. What's that? Sparrow having a go at the window! Trying to get in? Look out and see the feeder looks like an ice sculture. Oh, ok...wade out toting sunflower seed, wreck the sculpture and
feel a psycho moment...like a thousand birds ready to descend! High-tail it outta there. Jon's pacing, not knowing what to do with himself. We decided to watch a movie then walked up to the deli for fresh goodies for lunch. Email from Ruud saying he got my mail. Check out his site at IUOMA and indeedy, it's there with lots of other good mail. Wonder if the post office has to hire a special person just to deliver all his mail!
Made a collage then worked on different effects on photos...either I go into a trance working on this stuff, or last nite's wine is playing tricks cause suddenly it's nite. Peak outside...yep, whiteout...which is better than black out I suppose. I know, candles can be romantic but I don't feel like snuggling with the 'puter right now, Sue dog needs a bath, and so does Jon! Just kidding, Sweetie...sniff sniff. Speaking of, he went to NYC to work & play, caught the Cristo "Gates" at Central Park. Some great photos...will pick one he's not showing to give a feel for the scope of this project! Work wouldn't let me off ;-( Nurses have to call in from their own hospital beds to miss a day...but only griping a little. One needs one good gripe a day to keep the doctor away. groan
So how did you spend YOUR day? You did WHAT?!!!

Well, I didn't want to do that all day - but someone had to. And I know that cream and peas is an unlikely combination and the snow warning should have been enough - and even if the aliens hadn't landed I'd have still felt guilty - but, well... there you are. That was the sort of day I had and what can you say? At least the small dog was grateful and ducks we're pleased to be free.

So, you can do it. Hooray!
My day was a brisk walk to an icy town centre and the library, the market, the bank, the post office, some charity shops. Some stamps. Brisk walk home- a lovely warm home - central heating, what would we do without it! Sort stamps. Lunch. Can hate be good? can hate be great? certain deisels must be slow. hate something, change something, make something better. I love that animation. Shame its for deisel oil or cars or something!
Watching Arsenal get thrashed by some second rate german team ate the moment.

Brisker walk to the post and convenience store...lol. Then out to play in the snow with Popeye & Co. People walking by, watching & laughing...a fun time. ohhhhh, good mail! And thanks for including some mailart calls...look interesting. Going to do Jewel Box one from mailart site...did you send? Anyway, love the postcard...giggled again. And yes, Gee Whiz looks quite full...maybe a text addition or two but each page gives a laugh...and like the look of it. Anyway, how's that new building coming along? Hope there are some piccys in store!
Hugs to all.

Look forward to the new Gee Whizz!!!

Off to Rome tomorrow. We will, as Michael suggests, seek out the candles factory.
