I never know what to blog about, I wish I were a chatty type person but alas, I'm not. I envy people who can talk about their day and make it sound so interesting. It's raining here today, which is a good thing as we haven't had any for ages and the ground is welcoming it. Inside the house it's feeling damp and a little chilly so I decided to put the fire in. A nice warmth enveloping me now. I always think there's nothing better than a wood stove for the wonderful heat coming from it. Such a lazy day, Roger just went through a suitcase full of photographs he had taken over the years and threw out at least half of them. I did manage to grab up a few that I wanted to save. So he's now off on his walk and I'm sitting at the computer. Don't feel like doing anything really but relax and read a good book.
Sunday we were invited to afternoon tea at a friends house. There were seven of us and it was lovely. Buns, biscuits, cheeses, jams, spreads and fruits, all wonderful. It put me in mind of my grandmother who always had afternoon teas. Such great memories.
Yesterday afternoon a neighbour dropped by. Had a nice chat. Then a friend of Rogers wanted some help getting buckets of peat down the road so the boys went off. Came back about an hour later so as the sun was getting close to going over the yard arm, wine was served. All in all a nice afternoon.
I haven't taken many pictures this past few days. We went down to the beach as there were loads of dragonflies flitting about the bridge that goes across the river before you get to the beach. Of course the dragons weren't landing and the smell of rotting sea weed was so bad that I had to get out of there. Smelled putrid. Will have to try another day I expect. I did see a handsome spider in the bathroom this morning but couldn't get a good picture. I went back to try again but he had disappeared.
For now, just odds and ends of pictures I've taken lately.
These are two sheds on a friends property. I do love little old structures.
The sun was coming in the window lighting up some plants. The second picture didn't really capture the light on the plant too well.
Ok, ok, I like skulls, skeletons and knives, lol
Got the light fixture in picture at a flea market on the weekend for $4.00. Can't beat that and I'm well pleased with it.
And last but not least, a woodie. Such big feet. Not many birds around now. Don't know where they've all gone. Guess they are getting lots of natural food.
That's it, I'm off.
