  1. The #dailyFeb2018 project is making me happy. It means I’m allowed to play with my cameras every day, and there’s a point to it: I’m going to publish one of the photographs. Which is making me appreciate what I’m taking, which is making me happy, in addition to the pleasure of taking them.

    Had a lovely long, tipsy lunch with a good friend on Friday. And I’m happy/relieved to have plenty of freelance work; and that my surveyor’s backing me up with the builders, and all my worries about the build look like they’ll be sorted, one way or another.

  2. The #dailyfeb2018 project is making me happy too. I encourage everyone to check out the Instagram hashtag, even if you’re not participating. Jane’s photograph is amazing, and despite knowing her here for years, I’d never seen her work. Don’t miss it!

    There are some very talented people posting on the daily feb 2018 project. I didn’t think I’d spend as much time looking at everything (and the comments) as I did.

    DS asked me to make a Valentine’s card for his girlfriend – we had a consult about the design and he was happy with the final product. Finished a very busy and productive week at work with a yoga/meditation class.

    Not sure mine is grateful or happy but I’m having surgery ro re-align the unheal broken arm from this October. Maybe then I can get back to crafting.

    Yo! I have ALL the energy back. (my husband says it’s scary.) Extracted a popcorn husk hiding between teeth that hurt my face, eating yogurt daily to cure my foot pain, my head cold has receded. I’m back!

    Imma getting out in the sunny garden and GARDENING.

    At the Library Drinks Night and Fundraiser (they call it by another name), won our bids for five-course tasting menu at Stake and a gorgeous necklace from the shop of a friend who explores bazaars worldwide. If you see a woman with a chunk of clunkiness around her neck, that’ll be me.

    Now I’m going over to this Instagram thingie to be grateful for the talent of others.

    • Envious of the gardening. I’ve got one gold crucus and two dwarf iris out on my little balcony. And am planning a retaining wall of railway sleepers (new repro ones, without creosote) for my new garden. But oh, for real soil to get my hands dirty in . . .

      Hi Thea,

      I had a low grade infection in the gum area of one of my molars. Wouldn’t go away.

      The dentist triumphantly pulled out a popcorn husk and said I’d be surprised at how many of these husks he pulls out from people’s gum line.

      He told me not to eat popcorn any more and I haven’t.

      Next time I see him I’m going to ask him to tell me to lose ten pounds, lol.

        Yes, pain does make one reconsider the whole eating popcorn thing. Just a bit of a husk to cause such an overriding pain! Even so, I am impressed by your willpower.
