You seem so well ahead in your preparations, that I am quite envious. I've had a little break in the warm but with no chance of another for a while, but can really understand the need not to be in the cold for a long period of time. Hope that planning is fun too!

I love your clever water bus photo - great lateral thinking :). Glad you've enjoyed time away ...
I don't have any collections of paper, though I think Basic Grey is probably the one I have used most often. What a great idea to leave a space for Nikolas to do his own journalling, perhaps on a little card.

The yellow of that paper really makes your lovely puss's eyes glow! The vertical photo works really well.

It sounds as if CZ's project will support your own way of being very nicely - looking forward to seeing it as it emerges. I am late catching up here, and hoping that things are well with you and Norman ...
You have made a lovely job of these in Waterlogue - the walkway really caught my eye, as did the 'still life'.
Lovely to catch up, and I always enjoy your monthly goals - and intrigued that 2 and 3 chime closely with my own thoughts over here :).

Your coffee cup is delightful - and some very neat cutting round that handle!

This happened to us here one year and it does look so strange! I've been listening to the weather news and was wondering how you were faring. Hope it clears soon for you all.
Your cards always look so professional ... I love that top one with the card at an angle like that.

Very pretty - and the jute across the top is a lovely touch for the theme.

Those stripes with your lighthouse are brilliant! and the little flags work so well too. You have a great eye for detail.

What wonderful serendipity and synchronicity ... Hoping you have lots of good chats - there's quite a bit of the century to catch up on!

Wow, that triangle card is most eye-catching, with a bit of a retro feel. I reckon a fabric in this would sell really well!

I like your banner addition - balances the rest very nicely.

It's a lovely feeling when we finally do something we've been meaning to do! Creating breathing room sounds such a necessary thing for well-being. Yep, I have been decluttering hugely this summer and the greatest benefit has been feeling more 'together' and less spread out :).

This has a lovely, relaxed, doodle-y feel ... Makes me want to see if I could create something similar by hand. Fall (or 'autumn' as we call it here) is just making itself felt too.

Stunning - you have friends and family in the nicest of places! Hoping you have a lovely trip.
i like all of your ideas ... My only other thoughts was little house in the background with your square for the buiding, and your triangle for the roof. Or series of triangles along the bottom like the tops of a picket posts with him/her perched on one ... Or a spade/part of a lawnlower made up of some of the shapes? Whatever you decide, it is going to be lovely!

I too am wanting to focus on a reconnection and deepening/broadening/refocussing of my word for this year. This month - return to school - feels like the perfect time. In fact, I shall be quite delighted if it rains because then I'll feel I don't have to be doing anything else! Looking forward to seeing how it unfolds for you ...

What a striking fabric, Honoré ... and your plans for the day look like a week's worth! I am still a pen and paper fan too for thinking and reflecting.
Oooh, have you been painting, or having a go with Waterlogue? This would make a lovely card ... Just rrying to catch up and so sorry to have missed such a lot ...
These are lovely and I like your bright page ... I am impressed that your lovely daughter knows already that she wants to be a marine biologist!

Happy anniversary! I have been moving my digital things too, but in the opposite direction from desktop to laptop. I have culled ruthlessly!

As ours is nearly over, I have to tell you we have spent this one gloriously with our lovely son, daughter-in-law and family. The next, we have DH's annual family reunion, followed by a very good young friend the following one ... I might just rest and catch=up with myself on the final one :). Sewing and reading sounds so relaxing. Did you get the microwave?
