A little thank you for dropping by and joining in with my daily posts. Rather than being a chore, blogging daily has been an energizing experience, and has opened my eyes again to all the little things going on around me. And it's also renewed my zest for taking photographs and fitting in a little crafting on the way.
So I'm sending love and hugs to you all - thanks for finding the time in your day to say hello (or not - silent visitors and lurkers are very welcome). I'd love to reply to all your comments too, but I can't squeeze everything in. I hope you understand.
You're probably thinking this is a strange image, and you'd be right. There's a car park not far from my house where the surface is covered in these little crosses. I like to think of it as the hugs and kisses car park, and every time I walk through it it makes me smile to see row upon row of kisses as far as the eye can see. I thought it might make you smile, too.
:: Other snippets from today ::
I woke this morning to find not only Walter snuggled up on my bed (a daily joy as far as I'm concerned, and note on it, not in it. A subtle but important difference). There were also four tennis balls and crumbs from last night's biscuits at bedtime (his, not mine). That boy.
I have two books on the go at the moment - this one and this one. Very different, but I'm loving them both. Either would make a great present.
I visited an elderly friend this afternoon. Inevitably we talked about christmas plans and preparations. She's very organised and has christmas wrapped up by October, quite literally. On asking about my progress, I said that I hadn't actually made a single present yet, though several were 'on the go'. She looked at me and said: "Are you in denial?" I hadn't really thought of it like that. I know it'll all happen, so there's no point in stressing about it. I must order some card stock for making the christmas cards....
I've been out at a meeting this evening and walked home via the inner harbour. After standing derelict for many years the old warehouse which looks out across the water has been gutted and refurbished. I thought it looked rather beautiful with the lights shimmering in the dark.
I hope you've had a happy day, too.
