Delivery Day, Angels and Snoods

Today I took all the baby hats to the wool shop and was delighted to hear that the Midwife from Treliske Hospital will be collecting all the little hats at the end of the week. We also delivered our two goody packed boxes to one of the Cornwall Christmas box collection points. The idea is to fill them with food for a family for Christmas dinner plus some treats.

Ready for delivery

I hung some angels today and loved that they seem to be flying. Thanks, A!

When we were in Truro on Saturday, I took two snoods hoping to find the two Big Issue people that we buy from and talk to. They were both delighted to be given a Christmas present – one will be kept by S; the other is to be passed on to someone who needs it more………..

Falmouth Docks, Red Lights and The Super Moon

We had lunch with friends today and this was part of the view from the window.

I was looking for the Super Moon this evening and saw  that the light shining through the back door glass was throwing coloured lights onto the ground outside.

I found the Super Moon by going out at the front instead of through the back!

Blue Sky, Shadow and Carn Brea

On my two mile walk back from delivering our car to the garage early this morning, I was, as always, keeping a lookout for lovely things and I found them!

Wedding Photo, Recipe and Robert Frost

I conducted a Humanist Wedding Ceremony earlier in the summer and today received an email with some beautiful photos. This one shows the lovely moment near the end when I was signalling to the music man that now is the moment! The delightfully happy event was held at Charlie’s Boathouse and this was taken on the terrace with the sea as backdrop.

Yesterday I showed you the glowing pots of Seville Orange marmalade that I had made in the afternoon. Ark asked for the recipe so I have put it on my Recipe pages. Here is the link to Seville Orange Marmalade

Robert Frost is one of my favourite poets.  Here is Moon Compasses for you.

Moon Compasses

I stole forth dimly in the dripping pause 
Between two downpours to see what there was. 
And a masked moon had spread down compass rays 
To a cone mountain in the midnight haze, 
As if the final estimate were hers, 
And as it measured in her calipers, 
The mountain stood exalted in its place. 
So love will take between the hands a face . . .

Lights Switch On in Redruth

A delightful parade with the theme of Light, Father Christmas in his green outfit, our small town bursting at the seams, my choirs singing and the lights switch on, followed by the Wassailers – what a splendid evening!

Hydrangea, Garden Centre and Sunset

I love the delicacy of the skeleton Hydrangea flower in contrast with the still pink bloom.

In the garden centre, there was a whole display of purple, white and green to make a Suffragette garden.

Sunset tonight from St Agnes Beacon over to St Ives was quite disappointing until a beautiful pink bloom appeared in the dark grey clouds.

Delight, Autumn Wreath and A Mural

One of my photos has been published today in The Guardian on their weather pages! I am over the moon! You can find the original here. 

My photo in The Guardian!

Walking through Penryn today, I was drawn to a lovely red door with a wreath of autumn leaves.

One of my favourite shops has a new mural, a winter one replacing the sunny, summer one. I love seeing them. The artist  is Elizabeth Perry.
