Still Cloudy - Sigh

I managed to get the table cleaned off - for a day - before there was stuff on it again. The only difference now is that it does have a couple of seasonal bits on it to cheer me up. I played around a little with some indoor photography too as the weather has been so...dull. That also cheered me up a little.

I've managed to get all my cards made so I can cross that off the list. I haven't done any more shopping for presents but I'm going to do some more armchair shopping today. I do want to support local business' but I do so hate the crowds (grumble grumble). Even earlier in the mornings it seems to be so busy.

I have been working on a photography project. I belong to an online Camera Club and at the beginning of the year we resolved to do a Big Project. I decided on two that I'd like to do - one was more Black & White photography and the other to do a set of animal cards. Any sort of long term project is a struggle for me as I find it hard to stay on track but I am pleased to say that I have a large amount of Black & White photos. I have been sorting through them and have put together a couple of groups of them. It may not seem like much but I am very proud to have done them! I find that I really like Black & White photography and before starting the project I was of the mind that it was simply a matter of changing the colour. Now when I look to take a photo to convert to Black & White I am thinking of tones and textures. I am certainly going to do more. I think I'm going to put them in an album.

Today is going to be another cloudy day. I woke early and got up after oldest son had left for work. As I write this it is still early and dark out. I might go for a walk when it lightens up. I also have a couple of errands to run. I might actually get some crafting in today! I have continued on with the monthly journal so I shall do that.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable day!


  1. Ooooh I love the photo of your gnome.

    I look forward to seeing some of your black and white photos.


  2. Those dull, grey days really do get us down, don't they? I do like your little tableau of gnome, card, and lights! No seasonal decor, here, yet, because I don't decorate until after the almsgiving (although the monks usually ask me if I have my Christmas tree up, yet!)

    Your photography projects sound like fun. The Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt is also up and running (if you want something else to do!). Hope you have a nice walk, if you go out, today. Take care.

    1. Oh I'll have to look that up. If I remember rightly it goes on until sometime in the New Year - it might be something fun to look to photograph
