Early Spring

We’ve been blessed with sunshine this past weekend after several days of dreary, grey, rainy mornings — then afternoons. I happily did my errands in town on Saturday, stopping for coffee and wandering in and out of shops while enjoying the sunlight and the sort-of warm weather. Daffodils are everywhere.  Little grape hyacinths, too. We … More Early Spring

Between Here and There

I leave for Michigan tomorrow morning.  AP and I have discussed the “while I’m away” checklist and I’ve done the last minute household things that needed doing or were past needing done. This afternoon I decided to go to the supermarket and buy enough cat litter and  cat food for the weeks that I’ll be … More Between Here and There

Sunday in October

Found things while on an afternoon walk.

Cat Post No. 343

I’ve got to be honest.  Things have all gone a little south lately.  Not in a horrible way but in a disorganised,  scatty way where I keep forgetting to maintain my important morning routines and I’m also trying to jump start my Christmas stock for the store so I’ve not been very mindful of how … More Cat Post No. 343

More August

Yesterday evening was just too beautiful to pass up and so after dinner, we drove out to our favourite village pub to give my sister a taste of a beautiful country village on a warm summer’s eve. This is the small river that flows nearby.  On hot summer days you will find children playing in … More More August
