Cowart's Common Room

A mixture of sunshine and showers yesterday and quite mild.

I do believe the clocks go forward tonight by one hour, so less snoozing in bed.Smile

Sorry I am a tad late here on the perch, busy day, and then I went to check my emails and got carried away in answering all of them.

Have a lovely weekend.

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

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Puffin's Avatar Camilla reading her e-mails--
Sunny day here but a bit chilly.
Caught up on my household jobs a bit.
Still can't get over how much warmer our bathroom seems with the new Empire look vanity and basin' European style.'
Can see myself at last in the over sized looking glass.
Didn't miss much
Guess the other owls are late too.

Camilla's Avatar Hello Puffin,
Thank you. I hope tomorrow will be a little warmer for you, days here are quite fickle, one day warm, next day quite cold with easterly wind blowing.

Yes I bet that bathroom of your's looks fab Puffin.

Just going to pop the kettle on Puffin, back in a jiffy.

Frances's Avatar Hello to Camilla and Puffin.

Puffin, you would laugh to see the state of my little apartment. I cannot imagine being able to have a bathroom or kitchen that I helped design. Enjoy that new decorating!

Camilla, if your clocks change tomorrow night that will mean that we will once again be five hours apart. And that means that by the time I get here, I will already be wondering how it is that you can stay awake!

Great day at the shop ... lots of happy customers, so not everyone stopped by during our event yesterday. The staff was still quite tired after that event (I was too, but had to pretend otherwise.)

Back to work for the very early shift tomorrow. If the weather will cooperate, perhaps we shall have yet another good day.

(What I truly would like is great spring weather on Sunday ... that will be my next day off!)

Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances.!!

Thank you. I did manage to get 7 hours sleep last night which was good and felt ready for action this morning for work, got home about 4.30pm, Then walked Daisy, and began preparing the evening meal to cook later. Sorted out the laundry and re-lit the woodburner.

I do hope that your new Spring collection Frances, goes well, sunnier climate will be good for those customers to purchase those gorgeous garments.

I am wishing for you that Sunday will be a wonderful warm sunny day Frances, and that you will be able to take that leisurely stroll in the famous Central Park.

Frances's Avatar Thank you, Camilla.
Have you seen our new member JanieC's blog ... it shows a walk she recently took with her dog named ... Daisy. Think that you will like it.

Frances's Avatar Thank you for that Mary Cassatt drypoint/aquatint. I just about remember when I used to be able to create drypoint and aquatint prints... just something else I have forgotten how to do.

Sweet dreams to all owls. See you tomorrow evening. xo

Camilla's Avatar Thank you Frances,

Night night dear Frances, sleep well, sweetest of dreams, see you tomorow.

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Hi Camilla, Have just watched the video. Very soothing. Hope you are keeping well.Busy with the B&B and Tigger's 75th Birthday is on Sunday. He doesn't want a party, but when Palomina comes at Christmas I'll have a party to include the years celebrations-2 new babies due My niece in April, Palomina week of 11 May, my sister's 60th, nephew's 30th, and sneak Tigger into the equasion. So that should be fun.
