A Whale of a Day

Yesterday's highlight--while walking the dogs in the evening, we could see a whale out in the ocean. It was far away, of course, but we could see the spout and its tale a few times.

And this morning, while we had coffee on the deck, we could see it again.

I guess that means it is now officially our whale.

Gave up
I gave up on 'The Best Time We Ever Had' about 2/3 of the way through. I just didn't care about the story, and some of the characters were just not great people. I now am reading "Help, Thanks, Wow" and "Chelsea Girls". Both are early days so more on those later.

Card Inventory
I got out all my cards and cards-in-progress and grouped them into status so I can start to finish them all off. I have a pile of 'done' cards, a pile of cards that need iris folding, a pile of cards that just need a simple thing to finish them off, and a pile of cards that need a lot more attention.

Here are two 'done' birthday cards that I finished yesterday:



Close to you!

Here it is 'in the wild'.

That's it from here!

What a lovely shawl! And of course you know I love your cards.

Wow, you have your very own whale - I'm so jealous. Will you name him/her?
