Today the president of one of the most powerful countries in the world changed. I do not pretend to understand politics in the USA. Goodness me - I don't pretend to understand them in my own country let alone another, but I did like Obama. I liked everything I saw and heard about him and about Michelle and I am sorry to see them leave.
I will refrain from any form of judgement on Trump. Who can possibly know what he will be like at this stage - but I don't warm to him like I did to Barak Obama. I know politics isn't about 'warming' to someone but as I said, I know nothing about politics. Nigel is sick of explaining Republican and Democrat to me. I think the bottom line is I don't really care about the politics.
Once again the inauguration is on Nigel's mother's birthday - she is an incredible 92 today.
We enjoyed a lovely walk along the beach - it was bitterly cold but beautiful and sunny and we have now completed all of our chores - the shopping is done, the house is clean, an amazing stirfry was enjoyed and we are good for the weekend. Funny though - every day is like the weekend now. I do so love it!
I have scrapping news today. Dawn Inskip is very proud and super excited to now be one of the 4 designers making up the M3 (Mixed Media Monthly) team at The Lilypad – and her first add on packs went on sale today
and you can find them in her store here
This was what I made
It is also the last chance you have to snag the Pickle Barrel Six Packs.
This was the final one I worked with this month - This Year I will by Created By Jill
and if I do half of these things I will be proud ... picture was taken in November last year - I think it is the most recent one I have
Today I am thankful for
- another beautiful day
- being ready for the weekend
- a delicious stir fry - it was so yummy
and finally - some amazingly clever art to end with ... talented people with pieces of black card and famous landmarks and the like
