The Covid 19 pandemic continues and I like many others are hearty sick of it, but (why is there always a but?) I will like everyone else suck it up and continue to abide by the current rules as they appear. I do wonder how people find out about the changes who are not watching or listening to the news. The new change in Scotland is only 6 people from 2 households to get together at any one time. Not really any different for us to be fair, we have been slow coming out of shielding and are taking things slowly. Apart from our trip to see family we don't go far. We are homebirds anyway and enjoy each others company so no real hardship to stay at home a little more.
On a lighter note staying in the cottage has encouraged me to start a few more projects. I have been trying my hand at painting and sketching. I am enjoying the process but as yet I am not ready to share but I am sure I will in time. I have been exploring different ways of recording prayers to have a much more visual approach. Thus far it seems to be working and I have started a prayer journal and pray and relax painting in it. I am hopeful that it will evolve and become a daily process.
Christmas is also a prime focus. It is so nice to be able to make a few stocking fillers for the children and have made some wonderful crayon rolls for them.
