Thanks for popping in. Up with the dawn chorus this morning. What a glorious time of day! It may be chaos in the world, but in our little garden it’s peaceful and it’s calm. The early birdsong is a wonderful thing; it wakes up and it wakes me up as the sun rises – and no amount of rioting, no pandemic however devastating, even slows it down. Like the ebb and flow of the oceans, like the sun and the moon, like the leaves on the trees and the clouds in the sky – these are our constants. These are the things I focus on. And apart from the ocean, they’re in the garden! I only have to open my eyes to be there.
So why was I up with the lark?
We have several Parchment TV shows lined up this week: Thursday Pergamano Shows 11am and 3pm. Then Sunday One Day Special 6pm launch. Naturally, with so much going on, I want to get ahead of the curve on the Demo recordings which we send up to HOCHANDA. Linda Williams and Lynne Jackson have very kindly helped me out with the artwork, so all I have to do is present it and explain it. Still takes some figuring out though! But I have a plan – and one day at a time, with no hiccups, I shall stick to it.
5am. Hiccup No. 1. I started gathering all the ingredients to recreate Linda’s artwork using her new and lovely latest addition to The Groovi Garden Collection, the Wicker Chairs. All done on beautiful soft tones of Ivory parchment. Barbie reached for her Soft Tones Parchment Folder. No Ivory. No light Ivory either. Clearly a favourite! Stumbled at the very first hurdle. Never mind. Keep calm and carry on.
Hahaha Speaking of parchment, there’s a brilliant PARCHMENT sale on our Pergamano Website starting today. 40% off! That’s worth a looksie, don’t you think? That includes ALL PARCHMENT – the Designer parchment pads too…
Anyway, back to the story. Watch on Thursday, and see if you can see how I skirt around the absence of ivory parchment. You won’t even notice, I bet.
Linda’s latest addition to her lovely Groovi Garden plates is another beaut. I have a wicker chair just like these.
Yes. Have a lovely day. This day, June 1st 2020 will never come your way again. So don’t waste it worrying about stuff you can’t do anything about.
I’m waiting for Dave to come home, so that we can go for a long walk. That’s what I fancy. A long walk through the woods. Stretch the legs and talk to the trees. They are older than me, they listen, and they are always there for me! Just like my Mum and Dad.
Love and hugs,
