WOYWW #579

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to  and all will be revealed!

My desk hasn't changed much, as I really haven't been able to get to it. 

Last week I had to pick some needed things for hubby's return on Friday, and the car just happened to take me to our local stamp store...funny how the car knows where that is! So I got myself one new stamp and 2 re-inkers. This is, actually, exactly what I was looking for!

Along with caring for hubby, who is doing very well and really only needs help with meals, I hurt my back, so it is painful to do very much except put the heating pad on it. But I went to my chiropractor yesterday and it's feeling better today. We have been having a heat wave over the past few days, with temperatures soaring above 40°C, and so I have had to keep the cats in during the hot afternoons. But they are out in the cooler mornings.

Inky's favourite spot. Mittsy doesn't often stop long enough to sit in a chair!

Here are my newest blooms, most of the rest of the garden needs de-heading so they can bloom again.

And I bought a catnip plant for the cats, I often see Inky chomping away on it, but Mittsy pretty much ignores it. Maybe that's why Inky looks so zen in her chair!

Well, that's it for me today! Mittsy and Inky give you a rousing "meow!" and I say "have a great week, stay safe!"

WOYWW #578

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to  and all will be revealed!

Greetings all! Today is Canada Day here, happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadian WOYWWers!

of course all the normal plans are gone, no parade, no events, no art shows (except online), everything this year is virtual. And hubby is still in hospital, so a lonely one too. But he will be home on Friday! YAY!

But I digress, here is my desk today!

Not too messy, and an actual space to work! My project this week has been Tea Bag art, since I've been making a lot of iced tea lately. I never realized how different tea bags were! I started out with the ones that open up to a large flat piece of very thin paper:

 this woman is from Meer Image, and the grapevine wreath is
from Stampington

this bird is from Club Scrap

this dragonfly is from Stamp Oasis
I will probably add some bling to it, I usually do with this stamp!

I haven't tried the smaller tea bags yet, that will be next week.


My garden is finally looking good! I don't have much, just this little perennial bed:

 my newest flower

my roses!

It's funny, I really can't see my garden from the porch unless I walk around right in front of it, but I can see a beautiful garden across the street, which makes me happy! I am not a great gardener. If I had the money I would hire someone to make me swaths of garden that I could see and enjoy from the porch! It's all up here in my head...

Here are Mittsy and Inky to say hello today!

 Mittsy on the bed,

and Inky in the favourite bed (for both of them) right in the bedroom window. Sometimes I will find one in the bed and one stretched out beside it - we have a long cat-dedicated shelf under the window. You can see the curtain to the right of Inky, so they have this lovely "hidden" space! And my pile of Books-to-read at the end of the shelf.

Well, that's it for me! Inky and Mittsy say "meow" and I say have a great week!

WOYWW #577

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to  and all will be revealed!

Thank you to everyone who sent best wishes for my hubby's recovery from surgery. He had a double knee replacement (ouch!).  I do not envy his recovery! He is still in hospital where he can do physio until he can come home, which we will know by Thursday.

I did manage to get back to everyone who posted on my blog last week, better late than never! 

I wanted to share my finished journal via a slideshow, but darned if I can figure out how to do that without downloading a bunch of new software. My Picasa apparently isn't working because they shut it down in 2016, even though it is still included with the computer. Go figure.

My desk is exactly as it was last week, so I will share my journal (that was supposed to be a slideshow) with you.

It will be a long post, but here is the journal, get a cuppa (as they say), settle in, and I hope you can hang in for the whole thing! 

If you got this far, good for you! And thanks for looking! I hope you didn't get too confused!

Have a great week, Inky and Mittsy say "meow"!
