Keen readers will recognise this cup and saucer, my favourite crockery. Usually it appears on the blog when I am talking about France or just heading off France-words.
Today I'm using it to boost my day and remind myself that I will be there soon. In fact I'll be heading that way at the end of June and doing a bit of house-sitting over there for friends. Can't wait. So far this year just ain't been what I had hoped for, so an extended stay in La Belle France is just what the doctor ordered. I'm counting off the days now and starting lists!
Yesterday you sent in some great ideas for the book cover. I worked for ages on ideas and plans yesterday. Today I am trying something a wee bit different. So many of you said a bunch of herbs was a good idea, well I'm thinking of doing them as a drawing or painting. Shall get the paints and inks out this morning and start damaging some paper.
See Karon by lunch time, up to her ears in a sea of scrunched up paper, covered in paint, stabbed through the heart by a pen and muttering curses about whose dumb idea this was!
If all else fails I can abandon hope and pour myself a coffee in my little French cup, pull out my dog-eared notebook and start counting T shirts etc and hitting my list.
Have a lovely day. I so appreciate you reading this and being such a great friendship community.
