The title of this post is meant to be ironic, because, well, if I was a duck I'd look like I was floating calmly on the water, but hidden underneath, I'd be paddling like mad, trying to keep myself steady against the current.
It's just that sort of time at the moment, LOTS of work to do, not enough time to do it in, same old story as millions of other folks on the planet. And I'm not moaning about it, not at all, I'm very happy to be busy, I suppose it's really just an explanation for my lack of blogging last Friday, and a post today which is a bit thin on the ground in terms of content.
I have so many things to photograph and tell you about, all waiting to be shown. Like the giveaway gifts from Stephanie at blog Millefeuille, which arrived yesterday, and which have, have, have to be shown to you.
There's my lace dress I'm knitting, the finished Coraline cardigan, my crochet scarf, and the pattern for the crochet scarf (yet to write up).
And there's something else, which I'm quite excited about, but can't be put on my blog because I haven't yet photographed them.
Cards. Yes, my new cards arrived from the printers, it's very exciting. They're bigger and better than the last set of cards I sold, and I'm hoping you'll like them.
When we arrived, and got out of the car, it was silent. Complete calm soaked the atmosphere. The river was glassy smooth. Such a contrast to the busy town we live in, and so soothing.
We didn't encounter anyone else on our amble, we had the stretch of riverbank to ourselves. If I'd been on my own I would have been a little nervous in the eerie silence, but as Hugo and the children (I mean the doggies), were there, the quiet felt very companionable and serene.
Just what the doctor would have ordered.
I'll be back on Friday with cards to show you, among other things.
