X is for ......

Hi there how are you today? 

Thank you for popping in today nearly the end of another month - where does the time go?

Heavy rain again here last night but must get out into the garden to 
pick the raspberries. 

Here is my tag for today keeping with the theme of tags for The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge
(my theme I hasten to add not theirs) 

The letter this time is X - what a difficult one to think about but I had a bit of 
a brain storm and remembered something to do with Science. 

So here is my tag

I used one of my mopped up paint tags to draw the x-chromosomes on and used 
alcohol pens to colour in and drew in the strands of DNA.

Added the definition 

Something different today. 

Not a lot I can say about the tag really but hope it is OK

Saw this on the Hunkydory web site 

Another thought today is "always strive to work through every issue if you can"

I am not sure that I do that everyday. I find my time just going so quickly that I keep on 
turning round and another month / year has gone. 

However so long as I do what I need to do, and I am happy what more do I wish for. 

No Village Hall Coffee morning today so have the morning at home. 

Got the Harvest Festival Meal on Friday evening - yes that is tomorrow see what I mean.
Think so far there are about 35 - 40 of us going. 
So no cooking tea tomorrow. 

Well best get on - sun is out at the moment so best get to pick any raspberries I can find. 

Have a great day and catch up with you tomorrow.
