Hello my friends. I do trust this finds you well, and having had a lovely and special Stay-at-home Easter. On Easter Sunday morning I joined many others across the nations outside on my drive and sang two of the most popular Easter songs/hymns. I had decided to invite my immediate neighbours, so wrote them a letter explaining it, made them a card, and put a few mini Easter eggs into a box. Then on Sunday out we all went and sang aloud about the resurrection. It was surreal, but a good time. Then on Monday I received a thank you card for doing it – sent by a neighbour who appreciated the sense of hope. I was very blessed.
The rest of the work has been a mixture of doing at different “desks”…
…The jigsaw board!
…I managed to finish that blanket.
… I finished the colouring on the robin, and it is now upside down on a diagonal grid to do the embossing. This is going to take some time!!
… Having finished the blanket, I had to have something in my hands when I sat with the tv in the evenings. So decided to make some more of the little cannula covers for preemies and teenies.
… Having agreed, along with my daughters, that there is absolutely no point in my house being on the market at this present time, I took it right off the for sale register. Then set to, to do some decorating. Now, what you must understand is that I am possibly one of the world’s worst decorators. I’m too impatient – hence the marks on the glass in the photo. I decided to start small. The front porch. It’s about 5×4 feet – has three doors (only 2, fortunately which need painting). So, I have emptied, rubbed down, hoovered, sanded, and now given the walls two coats of paint, and the doors have had one. It takes SO long to paint a door – especially one which needs painting on both sides and has two panes of glass in it! I’m actually stood on the drive to take this photo! Hopefully tomorrow I can put a little colour on the walls. Still trying to decide if they need another coat of white first. I’ll make my decision tomorrow.
So there you have it, folks. I have even made some bread and cakes this week – keep me going whilst decorating! I played a game of Perudo with my family via Whatsapp – crazy and not exactly a comfortable environment for me, but great fun nevertheless. Fortunately, we had just achieved a winner when our time was up and everyone disappeared!
Take care my friends. Stay safe. God bless you.
