Shadows, A New Word and A Wall Hanging

25 Feb

1   The sun was so bright this morning that there were shadows on the blinds of the window bird feeder and the beautiful Cedrus Atlantica.

2   The sun went in, a bitter wind came in gusts so accubation was the choice. I curled up with one of my favourites, ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’, our next Book Group book. (Thanks to Shelagh for introducing me to this pleasing new word.)

3   Excellent session singing with The Inglehearts this evening. Every week I see this delightful wall hanging made by the pupils of Troon Primary School where we rehearse.

    The shadows pic is beautiful!

    Oh, and I’m a very skilled accubationer. 😉

    Shadows on the blind is a very good photograph. The composition/design is in itself beautifully simple, as well it has a artsy vision about it. It is very good indeed.

      Thank you so much! Your comments mean a lot to me. I loved the effect but wasn’t sure whether it was actually any good!
      All the best 🙂

      Apparently it means ‘reclining on a couch’ and was used to describe how the Romans lay about when dining. Shelagh used it to describe her own happy position for reading – which is what I was doing too. I just LOVE new words!
      Thank you for calling in 🙂

        me too, and I will have to use it soon–love the word but love what it means even more

          I wondered if it was related to incubation.
