My Man had told me of this astro event more than a week ago,
and we were so hoping for clear skies.
This is what we saw at dusk.
It helped to 'fill the well'
Crescent moon and venus
at one and seven o' clock
Yesterday was St Dwynwen's Day...our Welsh equivalent of St Valentines day, but without any of the commercialism. Because of that, I love to celebrate this day of cariad, and made my love a card ~
The linen base and next layer of silk were dyed
in a pot of old, dried bay leaves. The heart ~ green
(for the heart chakra) ~ from a velvet thrifted skirt
We had tea, (blackberry and blueberry), in one of our favourite cafes and talked about art and writing, and the great special offer I purchased at Jude's Small Journeys that morning. I have been wanting to do this for a long time, and was so happy to finally manage it :~))) ~ They are fantastic..as are all her classes....even her pdf's are beautiful ~
On Monday we had a most sociable day...very unusual for us....and we enjoyed it. We had gone to Cardigan to visit the dentist, and afterwards happened to meet My Man's boss from years ago, when he used to be a printer. We went in to the printshop and there, after 18 years, still attached to the wall with yellowing, aged tape, were My Man's line~drawings!
Later I asked him if he had come face to face with his younger self in there....
We also had a chance meeting with a friend we had not seen for a long time, who's book we promoted in the bookshop we used to have in Cardigan over 13 years ago.
We went to this art cafe to catch~up with lots of his news....
I had mocha coffee...oh yummm
that's him on the left. The gentleman on the right joined us and we had a
most interesting conversation about building with lime , WWll bomber
planes(!), and what our friend had planned for tonight (Thursday).
A visit with a friend who shared her delicious lunch of home made tomato soup and humus rounded off this rather companiable day.
Cardigan was abloom with happy~making pansies :~)
We were lucky to see this, as later the clouds came in and the wet
stuff came back.
