Day 5 of Golden Wedding Week

A sunshine forecast so a day at the beach was in order – at our family favourite, Chapel Porth. Dam building, Pooh sticks, Croque Monsieurs (fabulous!) from the Beach cafe, ice-creams all round  and a good time was had by all.  The Grandbaby twins were a hit in the supermarket on the way home! Today’s gallery follows.

Day 4 of Golden Wedding Week

Lappa Valley was our destination today as this was a family favourite from the days, thirty years ago,  when we all used to visit my Mum and Dad in the summertime and three generations loved the mini steam train ride and the picnic at the end of the journey. Today, three generations again had fun and a fine picnic and a play and a paddle in the natural pond dammed up for the purpose. Click on any photo in the gallery to join us in our fun-packed day.

Day 3 of Golden Wedding Week

This morning I made two Picnic Pies for tomorrow and some crumble topping for this evening and then we went out to the farm to have some time just with the Barcelona babies and their parents and with our eldest and her daughter while all the other children went back down the lane to the beach for more adventures.  On their way back they picked two buckets worth of blackberries for the Blackberry and Apple Crumble.

LiveWire 2 is a natural with his baby cousins and they are loving him and his attention.

J&MLiveWires 2 and 5

Just before dinner tonight, we were presented with the ‘first’ of our presents from them all – fabulous T-shirts printed with the family portrait that we had made almost two years ago to give to each family. As a very special surprise KJ had been in touch with Kate from Cornish Bird in the Sticks and she added our Grandbaby twins to the family portrait! What a totally fabulous thing to do for us. We were quite overcome…..  Every member of the family now has a commemorative T-shirt.

Pressed Flowers and Thanks

I am making an Early Days memory board for our Golden Wedding celebrations next week.  Among my treasures are some flowers that I collected and pressed while on our Honeymoon in St Ives. They have kept their colour remarkably well for 50 years!

Fuchsia and Rose of Sharon

I promised you more of the Onondaga Nation Thanksgiving words.

Granny Square Day, Woodpecker and Chicken Pie

Today is National Granny Square Day so I would like to show you some Granny squares made by my Granny and made into a blanket by my daughter for her daughter. LiveWire 4 has a blanket made by her Mum and her Great Great Granny! Please look at this earlier post as I cannot move the photos to here.

We have had the Woodpecker back feeding here again.

The first contingent of family arrive on Thursday  for our ten day long Golden Wedding Celebrations and today I have made the pie filling for Chicken, Potato and Asparagus Pie.

Onondaga Nation, Tomatoes and Sand Dollar Earrings

In The Heard Museum in Phoenix last year, I found a beautiful 53″ long wall hanging entitled “Greetings and Thanks to the Natural World, a daily thanksgiving inspired by the Onondaga Nation, Haudenosaunee’. I’ll show you a piece a day for the next ten days.

A Daily Thanksgiving inspired by the Onondaga Nation

Special thanks today go to three of my friends with whom I sing for a lovely hardworking afternoon and to J for a share in his wonderful tomato crop.

Mixed tomatoes

Still sorting! Today I came across such a little treasure in a box of forgotten earrings. I have shown you Sand Dollars before but these are tiny and so perfect and I have never worn them.They measure just over 1cm in diameter. Click here and here to see earlier mentions.

I am loath to break one of my Sand Dollars to find the ‘five perfect doves’ mentioned but am very tempted. Watch this space!
