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

Puddleducks and mud


The mud-flats are exposed today. Streams channel their way out to join the river. The clean-washed sand is covered with tracks from the seabirds. And the ducks. White and amber shelducks puddle their way out to the freshwater, hunting for food.

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 :)

  1. Happy Valentine’s Day Igg!! Hope you have a lovely day with your loved ones πŸ™‚

  2. Happy Valentines Day! Guess what–it’s actually milder than usual here too–not as warm as your beach but not freeezzzzzing as it has been.

    • The picture is illusory – freezing here, with an icy breeze!

      • In a way that brings comfort…cold comfort (pun intended). Something I was thinking about–both your pictures and those from Iain rarely show snow even though we are at about the same latitudes–I figure we are almost the same and Iain is about 10 degrees north of both of us. I guess in your case some of the slight warmth is due to the gulf stream. Here, we het the opposite–the ICY Labrador current runs down along our coast bringing a multitude of icebergs along with it later in the spring. But not today–it’s actually a balmy zero! Snowstorm again tomorrow…

      • Yes, gulf stream effect. Today has been around 5 deg, and it’s dropped now to 1 deg, so still above freezing. The tall peaks have snow on, but nothing much here by the sea.
