Happy Tuesday and Happy November! Thanks to those who visited me last week, it was more than last week and I appreciate it – you will be pleased to know I have switched the recaptcha off today to see how things go re the spammers. I still have limited screen time due to my eye problems and I don’t want to spend it leaving comments on blogs who don’t seem to know I exist, so I’m sorry to say that I’ve stopped visiting the people who have never visited me, even after my three years of T. Anyway, on with the post…
T Stands For . . .
Hot water and lemon. You can just catch a glimpse of the slice of lemon at the bottom of the cup on the right of the photo. Miss Lily is of course in her usual position on my art table. She is less impressed with the lemon water – why would I ruin a perfectly good cup of water lol.
I’m trying to get away from the bad habit I seem to have adopted of drinking black (decaf) coffee first thing in the morning, so I have switched to hot water and lemon.
Here’s a lovely photo of Possum, a cat we had many years ago in Melbourne. She was such a great cat, and she loved Autumn, though obviously Autumn was not in November there! Every time we swept up the leaves she would dive right into the middle of them and then wait to pounce on us lol. I’ve used a copy of this photo on my art journal page today.
Last week cat butts came up in conversation and I mentioned I had a set of cat butt magnets. If you are curious, here they are in all their glory. It even comes with a hairball magnet lol.
Currently Reading . . .
The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale with the book group. Last month I read his latest book (Once a Monster) so I’m intrigued to see how this one will play out.
TOTAL for 2023
118 books so far
November Books so far – 1
(re-reads if any are in bold)
Today’s Art . . .
Today’s art is a journal page for Jo’s theme this month on Art Journal Journey – Nature. I wanted to use the above photo of our old cat Possum in Australia so I scanned and printed it out.
A closer look…
Lots of bits and pieces, washi stickers, other ephemera with various animals and plants.
We have been having dry, crisp, cold weather but it’s good for taking clear photos of Arran and the beach. If you remember previous photos of this same view (here or here) you might remember the island being completely obscured by rain clouds and mist! But below you can actually make out some of the terrain as the sun hit the mountains.
Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading and Happy journalling!
