Life, crafty stuff, long walks, thoughts, and little oddities.

Jewelled grass and emerald fields


Wrapped up warmly, I venture outside, into the teeth of the wind. Jewelled raindrops decorate the grass, adorning stems like diamonds. The sun shines through a window in the clouds. Bright patches of light highlight the cliffs, bringing into sharp focus the copper and brown of autumn. Fields gleam emerald green in the warmth. The rain starts again, blown by the breeze. I turn, and there, arched over the hills, is a rainbow, glowing against the storm clouds. Stop and stare until, face numbed by cold, I head for home. Sat on the window seat, I watch as the squall approaches. Closer and closer, until the water lashes at the glass. Inside, snug and warm, I drink my tea, and look, and ponder.

Taking time out to ponder life and everything else. This is the space where I press the pause button on my busy life to reconnect with God, to re-energize, and focus on my creativity. Time out to blow bubbles, walk on the beach, write some stuff, do some needlework, and generally enjoy life once again. You can view my main blog at www.iggandfriends.wordpress.com. I also have another blog at www,faithinthehome.wordpress.com, and a arty/crafty one at http://52weeksofcreations.wordpress.com/. I hope you enjoy visiting :)
