Cowart's Common Room

The weather here is so different to those wonderful spring like days we had last week. It is blowing an extremely fierce gale and it is bitterly cold, have lit the woodburner so all snug and cosy.

Spent some time today writing letters and cards and answering quite a few emails from abroad from friends.

Did not get a very good night's sleep last night, and Daisy woke me in the early hours wanting to be sick....... not sure what it was but she seems to be alright now thankfully.

Just off to make a cuppa, see you later.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Frances's Avatar Hello Camilla,

Hoping that little Daisy will have an easier night. And that you will have lots of restful sleep, as well.

Our NYC weather was also quite cold with lots of wind. I had planned to take a walk in the Park this afternoon, when my errands were done ... but it was just too cold to be fun.

So, I have been indoors since mid-afternoon, and had a grand catch-up conversation with some old friends. They are both artists and it is always a delight to hear what they've been up to.

I am feeling very relaxed now, which is good because tomorrow will be full of challenges at the shop!

Puffin's Avatar Hi Camilla,trying to make up my mind what kind of pup the lady is holding.
Sorry to hear your little Daisy was ill.My Little pups get upset stomachs once in awhile-more Tigger[the Carne],but the next day are fine.
I love red hair-have had bright red hair myself,once in awhile.
My cold is about the same and now B.has it too.
Getting colder here again with quite a lot of wind.

Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances,

Thank you. Daisy is sleeping on the sofa at present, she is a lovely pal to have near me.

Very cold weather Frances, and forgot to mention it was raining bucket loads too and as I type I can hear the rain thumping against the window panes.

Oh it is always so good to catch up with friends Frances, and lovely to hear they are artist's, creative like you dear Frances.

My very good friend has the same interests, books of course, art, theatre, architecture, vintage.

Hoping that the shop will do well with the new Spring range Frances.

Puffin's Avatar Thank you Frances for your kind reminder,
As you may have noted-Seashell and I too--Open mouth-insert foot- we are the two scatterbrains of the trio.
I am so glad you had such a nice relaxing day.
Good friends are fun to visit with.

Frances's Avatar I am also hoping that the beautiful spring line will sell well.

So far, I have picked out a jacket from the April collection. It is vaguely Asian in design (that sort of thing generally works for me) and fits me well. It is in a "double weave" linen, which means, I think, that the fabric is just a bit heavier. The color is called branch, which is a vaguely greyed out brown, with perhaps a bit of a purble tinge. However, there is a cross weave thread that is cream, or a very pale yellow, and that is what is keeping me from being totally convinced that it suits my complexion ... since I do have yellow undertones.

Probably will take the jacket and will make sure to always wear it against a black background, or perhaps red, to cut that yellow bit a bit.

Camilla's Avatar Hello Puffin,

Thank you. I am not sure what breed of dog girl is holding, thought at first it might be a Pug, love Pugs.

Daisy much better now, she is coming into season soon so could be to do with that.

My Grandmothers all had red hair, very long but always pinned high in a bun. Sorry to hear that your 'B' has the cold now, there is quite a lot of colds about still, hope you both will soon be feeling much better, definately a hot toddie might help.

Hello Elizabeth, lovely to see you here on the perch tonight.

Frances's Avatar Dear Camilla and Puffin,

I anticipate a long and challenging day tomorrow at the shop, and think I had better sign off now, and take some steps in the direction of the land of nod.

Wishing you all sweet dreams. xo
