Jan 7th – When the path isn’t clear

Today’s photo is from a very foggy dog walk this morning. It got me thinking about today’s post, and the similarities between this weather and the uncertainties facing us all during our lives. Just like a foggy day, many people sometimes struggle to see where they are going in their lives, especially during the CovidContinue reading “Jan 7th – When the path isn’t clear”

Jan 6th – Lockdown day …

Well, I should have been playing golf today, but alas, like the rest of the country, it’s an indoor day. So what to do??? Well, there’s an old saying that ‘variety is the spice of life’ and so I cooked a bit of breakfast after walking the woofers, cleaned up and noticed lots of birdsContinue reading “Jan 6th – Lockdown day …”

December 25th – Happy Christmas!

Today’s picture is of the sunsetting on a very different Christmas day. Christmas for me is a time for giving and sharing, difficult this year with the covid restrictions in place, but I’m a firm believer that in order to appreciate good things we need to have a little time when things don’t go toContinue reading “December 25th – Happy Christmas!”

December 12th – Lock Down

So it’s not just humans in lock down…. Today’s project was erecting a poly-tunnel for our chickens. It follows outbreaks of a “highly pathogenic” H5N8 strain of bird flu which has come over from Europe recently, resulting in all poultry needing to be kept under cover. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/avian-influenza-bird-flu-in-europe I ordered the tunnel online, but unfortunately it arrivedContinue reading “December 12th – Lock Down”

December 7th – Robin wreath

She’s been at it again, the clever Mrs L, with her felting hobby, making this lovely wreath from un-spun wool. But where did the Christmas wreath tradition start, and where does the Robin fit in to the Christmas tradition? The keeping of an Advent wreath is a common practice in homes or churches. The concept ofContinue reading “December 7th – Robin wreath”

December 5th – Christmas & cards

So we have made it to December!! We don’t normally put up the Xmas decorations until a week before Christmas but 2020 has been a bit different with Covid, and so we bit the bullet to brighten up the place. Recently there has been much debate regarding trees, CO2 and our planet and rightly soContinue reading “December 5th – Christmas & cards”

November 26th – Fog

I took today’s picture on the woofer walk this morning. There was a definite nip in the air, but it was dry and still, so pleasant. The fog was still sitting in the valley, obscuring the normal landscape, but it will lift. When you’re having a foggy day, can’t see the horizon in your life,Continue reading “November 26th – Fog”

November 15th – Winter walk

We ventured out for a woofer walk this afternoon, and were lucky to avoid the heavy storms that have been hitting the UK over this weekend. The ground was a tad soggy, but the dogs didn’t seem to mind, and it was good to be out in the fresh air. It has been mentioned manyContinue reading “November 15th – Winter walk”
