SCRAPPING THE MUSIC#108 The challenge this week is the song 'Beautiful Dawn' Here is the view from the side garden of my house's veranda. I've used webbed cardboard as the backing, where its partially peeled back (brown paper covering), framed it and the rest is really Prima! It sure was 'different' to create with and a whole lot of fun!
AUSSIE SCRAPJACKED So many jacks to jack over at Aussie ScrapJack !! I always fall head over heels with Lou's art!! SO, my decision to jack her interpretation was made in a micro-second!! I so loved doing this LO of 'Jonathan' (story below) strutting! It seemed perfect for it. 16th OCTOBER photo Patiently waiting for me to come home 17th OCT photos The very first time Paige was invited to play violin in the adults Stringed Chamber Orchestra! I managed to sneak a couple of photos...not the best...but at least its something!!! Standing for applause! How proud was I...there was a little tear in my eye. They were playing Vivaldi's Gloria and with full choir. She was very proud of herself too. 18TH OCT PHOTO Named 'Jonathan' after 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull', he or she found its way into my garden(as birds and animals seem to when they need a little help). Jonathan is old, knarled-knees and unable to fly any longer, came down to land for the last time, to see out the end of his days. I couldnt leave him to be killed by cats or whatever else, so I picked him up and made him safe in the cat pen (without the cats) so he could see himself out peacefully. He is eating the fish I give him, and happy to drink, and be still and quiet. He seems thankful even, though doesnt make a sound. I dont think he has long. 19TH OCT 09 Off to the vet! Poor Blacky looked so 'betrayed' that I would stick him in the carry basket to take him to that awful place. He's been limping, and I thought it was his old hips...but when he was laying down, Paige caught sight of the underneath pads of his paw and they looked infected - white even (they are normally black) Its the big pad, and a little one next to it. Anyway, Blacky behaved perfectly! And the diagnosis - he's BURNT his foot....now how could that happen? He doesnt go outside, so its either from our open fire somehow (but its the back foot??) Or the vet said that he's probably jumped up on the stove while its still been hot? Hmmn, then he'd be very sneaky because I've never seen him do that. It's a nasty infection now so he has antibiotics and anti-fungal medication. $95 thank-you! Ah well....it could have been worse....Paige wanted us to take Jonathan to the vet! . . *edited* Jonathan passed peacefully today. It was how it should be.
