I have finished the tree I showed you yesterday - I think. I may add a few more green leaves to it just to help 'lift' it from the background a little more. I also have a cute little owl button I plan to perch in the tree.
Unfortunately the true colours aren't showing in these photos and this next picture is a little blurry. I've had a huge struggle getting these pictures to post to the blog right-size up, so I was happy to get as much as I did!
Pause here for a slight rant - Just had to buy a new cell phone, which in itself is not a bad thing (despite the fact that it's very rarely used and is just over two years old and shouldn't have needed replacing). I buy the absolute cheapest thing I can find because it's just kept for emergencies and the odd very short call. I don't have any desire to surf the web on my phone, and nor do I use it as my primary means of contact. The rant part of this comes from the fact that I stood in the store for over an hour while one (one!!) person waited on several people - two of which she assisted ahead of me because their needs were 'short'. Waa?? Another employee assessed each persons needs and that's the order they were looked after. If I hadn't already been standing there for a very long time by that point I would have walked out. I stuck it out because I imagine the line-up will be the same no matter when I went. One of the 'perks' of living in a small town is that there isn't a whole lot of choice and you're pretty much stuck. There....rant over.
Today the quote is from Sister Elizabeth Kenny....."As a girl my temper often got out of bounds. But one day when I became angry at a friend over some trivial matter, my mother said to me, "Elizabeth, anyone who angers you conquers you" I think I should have read those words before I went to the phone store!!
