Looking toward Greenock
Yesterday was a truly lovely day, so much so that as the working day finished and twilight beckoned, I decided to enjoy the remains of the day with a delightful coastal walk.
It may seem strange that working near the seashore you take your window vista with a pinch of salt (yep-it’s there every morning I wake too), but I was astounded by the beauty of the day.
Perhaps, as there wasn’t snow, wind or rain (no jacket required), it was milder than it has been in weeks, meant I didn’t want to miss out enjoying the day so, off I went with a spring in my step and Spring in the air!
As you can see, my route took me from sunshine to twilight, just look at the remarkable shades of colour and light.

What’s the first thing you do in readiness for the Festive Season ? Think about your Christmas Menu ? Wonder if you have enough room for everyone ? Decide to go on Vacation instead or panic ? Personally, I usually sigh and think how quickly the year has flown by, because it just cannot be December again ! Then, I check my Christmas card list, make sure my addresses are up to date and ponder over what type of greeting I would like to send to my family and friends. After that I go with the flow, and generally everything falls into place by Christmas Eve.
My intention most years, is to make my own cards, but I always buy a few packs or individual cards, just incase. Mind you, one year I will probably not have to make cards, as my “just incase” card stock is growing in such number that I am pretty sure there shall be enough eventually, for all my recipients !
If, like me, you are planning ahead for December 25th, let me show you some of our greeting cards for Christmas, they may come in handy . . . just incase !
