Joining in with Cathy’s brilliant meme – a In a Vase on Monday.
Hydrangeas and asters with the bag that Miss E (8) is making.
Last night goes right into the top 10 most surreal nights I have ever spent. I set the alarm for 1.30am so that I could watch the eclipse of the full moon – which was well worth staying up most of the night for. Magical, russet for a while and weirdly beautiful.
I knew the eclipse would take a few hours – what to do – I found a website where I could watch the eclipse in real time on my lap-top, as it was too bright to look at to begin with, got back into bed with lap-top and put a DVD on the TV to keep me awake. Every so often I would pause the DVD, put on my sunglasses and go outside to watch the moon.
The DVD was Hector’s Search for Happiness
with Simon Pegg – a nice easy watch for most of the time but taking me and my mind on a journey around the world searching for happiness – whilst also watching an eclipse on a computer as well as in reality, outside in the dark with sunglasses on – it sent my brain off in even more weird somersaults than usual, and set me thinking about what made me really happy.
I realised that sitting crafting all day listening to Radio 4, was one of the ways I get to feel that all’s well in my world, and that I have not had a whole day like that for ….. hmmm…… well …… years.
So I gave myself a ‘Happy Day’ and I sat and played with beads and made beaded decorations:
and the ones she wants to make for presents
and hang the dingle-dangles from them.
I worked/played from 8.30am til 5.30pm (with a short walk at lunchtime) and then I quickly put a vase together to join Cathy and her gardening pals. I didn’t want to miss out.
Oh Happy Day!
What would you love to do all day if you could?
