I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Life Is Good

Hello all!  I'm just having flashbacks (it's all these Encore posts)...  I suspect that there may have been a post entitled Life Is Good at some point in the history of Words and Pictures.  Ah well, as George Santayana said, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."  I think he had something rather worse in mind than using the same blogpost title twice.  Sorry, I'm wittering... it's writing and scheduling all these blogposts, I think!

Anyway, it's a new project today rather than a flashback, but I'm afraid you're going to have to hop for it... I'm over at the Country View Crafts Projects blog with an upbeat, springtime tag.


So I hope you've got some spring-like weather with which to pop over and check it out.  I hope you enjoy the trip.  And I hope I'm enjoying all my trips.  All being well, I should be home in a couple of days, though only for a couple of days.  For now, I'll keep moving and leave you to your hopping!

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
