Another good day

It has been another good day for us.
Hubby has done some gardening and our compost bin has produced some lovely mulch from our grass cuttings. He is planning on where to put what this year, and the intention is to grow cabbages and cauliflowers, onions and tomatoes. We have given up on carrots and green beans, but have some activity in the garlic trays in the greenhouse, and the freebee roses are also doing well!

While he was doing all that, I got the card kit out and set to.
I ended up having two sessions (and backache LOL) but have made 16 cards in total today using up some odd and ends. No experiments or anything special today, and several cards although not exact duplicates, used the same papers just with something different on top. I concentrated mainly on birds today as I had some left over from a pack I bought last year. No photos of my efforts today, but they were along these lines:


I now have plenty of Hello cards in the box, and there are nine cards on the coffee table waiting to be written, five of which are birthday greetings for the first week of February.

We have also had a walk today, so the ‘human puppy training’ is well in hand. Now we just need to find one.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    so you are puppy hunting – best wished with that!
    your cards are lovely and so are the veggies – mmmm

    • Thank you. Yes, we are looking for a new pup. No luck so far, but we are optimistic. We still miss Maggie terribly and although I said I didn’t want another dog, I seem lost without one.

        yes – I understand the feeling of not wanting another dog – that is how I felt when our second set of labs passed away – and we went while without any dogs – and it as nice for a bit – and then the heart felt called to get one (and we prayed about it a lot) then we missed a rescue of a yellow lab pup – and my hubs was sad – but a few months after that rescued a 2 1/2 year old chocolate lab pup (Elway) and he was our family member in waiting – hahaha
        so sending good vibes your way to get the right one and condolences again for Maggie (woof)

      • Thank you so much. We see our pets as our family, but Maggie will always be my baby. The new pup will make their own way into my heart, and there is room for them.

  2. Beautiful cards. Continued prayers for the right dog.

    No Swedes this year? I hope your “puppy training” is going well and the search is soon to pay off!

    • We had a lovely swede last year but the slugs and ants got the rest. We’ll see how much room we have left and maybe have another go cos I can always freeze it.

  6. Love the cards! How did you get such a big cauliflower! I think I only tried once and it had bugs all over it. Maybe this year I will try again. David said he will build me a raised bed to start a new garden.

    • Our onions are in a raised bed, as were some of our caulifowers. We had about four that size and three smaller ones, so are hoping for a similar harvest this year. No special treatment though, they just grew well.
