Monday musings

It's Monday, another day nearer to my holiday, do hope my passport come through the postbox this week.
I really have to do a thorough clean of the lounge. I have really heavy furniture and not an awful lot of room for manoeuvres so I don't often pull out and clean underneath. I wonder if I'll find any treasures?
Apart from buttons and a magazine I don't think I've read there was nothing of interest at all. Shame.

My picture for the day is my little teddy with my magnifying glasses a good way to know where they are as I am always loosing them. (mind you I can only find the one pair and I have at least three)

So lets get back to more interesting things. I finished a page late Sunday night, (well really very very early Monday morning)

autumn in the Lane (scraplift)

it had been sitting on my desk all Sunday afternoon and when I returned after my lovely afternoon with Neil and family I looked at it and thought I'll just do a little, well when the ideas are flowing go with it and as usual I forgot the time until I had it all completed.

I have been following the Loch of Lowes Ospreys for several weeks and yesterday we saw the first of the three eggs crack open and a little chick is hatched so exciting and we are so privileged to have such a grand view of the nest thanks to the dedicated team who keep guard 24/7 during the whole time the osprey are in Scotland

The weekly challenge on UKScrappers this week is to use two photos, Black & White with a touch of Yellow, Something old and something new and, because it was set by the crafty Magpies team to use a line from the poem

One for sorrow,
Two for joy,
Three for a girl,
Four for a boy,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret never to be told,
Eight for a wish,
Nine for a kiss,
Ten for a bird you never want to miss.

that last line was perfect for the Osprey, but as I have no photos of my own I borrowed two stunning ones from the Wildlife village site. They are all superb photos, which to choose, I chose two by Paul Jessett

Unmissable Osprey

I kept the page simple and stylish as befits such stunning photograph I really didn't want to distract from them.

Today I am grateful for getting the housework done early enough to be able to scrap
for the excitement of the first hatching

When we kayaked in Washington state last summer, we were lucky to see some huge osprey nests!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
