Get Off My Back- I Want To Fly!
Don't you wish you could fly away from whatever is on your back? Okay, you might have to work at it a bit and really shake it off, but let this woodpecker be a lesson for us all. Never give up, never surrender! (This is a photo from a man who was on a walk in England, in Essex...it is a green woodpecker with a weasel on its back...some say it is a baby weasel but it looks pretty darn big to me!)
It has not been easy for me to spend as much time on my blog as I would like...I have had to do some overtime at work and it has been a bit stressful. One bright spot this week...one of my co workers came to me and said, "Hey, Kay, look at this"...and then turned his phone to me and showed me the SWEETEST photos of his new granddaughter, wearing the baby cap I had crocheted for her! (And the next photo had her wearing the flower headband that I had made!) The baby's name is Scarlet and of course, you must know that I love that name! Not only does it remind me of Scarlet O'Hara (very Southern) but also of the actress who played her, Vivian Leigh- very English! See, I always have that Southern/English thing going on, don't you know.
I didn't take a photo of the baby cap or headband but they looked absolutely precious on the newborn, really they did! Here is a photo of a baby boy wearing one of my caps from a few years ago. This is just a simple thing but what wonderful joy to have a baby wear this! I can't tell you how pleasing this is to me! I want to tell the world- get off my back I just want to create my works of art! (Well, that may be stretching it...but you understand, dear reader!)
