The theme for Illustration Friday is pattern and it suits me down to the ground. Visually I sort for pattern and see it in almost everything I look at - I have patterns in my head all the time, so I had a job deciding what to do this week.
I've recently been doodling to music and letting the lines flow with the rhythm and, seeing as I live with a songwriter I thought I'd better use one of his - my favourite. Coincidentally it's about changing patterns of behaviour and is called 'shut my mouth'. You can listen to it here if you like. (Hope this link works.)

Carpe Diem

The weekword is Carpe Diem and I must be naive but I didn't know what this meant. So after looking it up I just knew it was a good opportunity to post another picture of My Jack Russell. Sorry... you just have to indulge me! I wish I could live like he does - totally in the moment, because when I do manage it, life is absolutely wonderful.
Chosen this week by Line, go over to her blog, she has a real sense of natural beauty - her photos are stunning and you can link to all the other participants.


I've been absent without leave for a week in one of my favourite places.

We harvested the butternut squash from the allotment this weekend. Much better than last year, we harvested 30 HUGE squash. They will keep us in soup supplies all Winter.

The weekword is 'charm' chosen by Linda Sue, pop over to see her beautiful felting and all the other links to this week's word. These sweetie bracelets seem to be all the rage at the moment. If I bought one - guess which charm I would get first?
