Rainbow, Reflection and Cookies

Drawing the curtains back this morning I was greeted by a beautiful bright rainbow.

The reflections on the Penryn River as we sang this morning were very lovely.

Last time we went on The People’s Vote March, I was touched by a young woman’s generosity when she passed out home-made Brownies to the crowd around her. Today  I have baked 50 Oat and Cherry Cookies to hand out to fellow protesters. I packed them up before taking a photo so here are the three saved for us!

Mural, Plastic Bottles and Cacti

The mural outside one of my favourite shops, Just Delights, has recently been done for winter. The mural is changed each season and pleases me every time I drive through to choir.  To find the others, put mural into the search.

After singing today, I did my shift in Fannie and Fox, the lovely gallery in Penryn where my glass now sells. It is a real pleasure to sit among so many beautiful things. Here are some for you to see.

Fish Shop, Spider and Supper

Opposite the Zed Shed in Penryn where we sing on a Thursday morning is a fabulous fresh fish shop – with a sense of humour.

Ark, do you recognise this tiny spider?

I treated us to Scallops from the fish shop (as well as hake for another evening.)

Steps, Squirrel and Earrings

A lovely display of flowers on these steps drew my eye as I walked up through Penryn today.

Two baby squirrels have been dashing around our garden exploring every corner including the bird feeder and one completely unafraid of me as I approached though the other dashed off along the wall.

I bought myself some beautiful new earrings today from a lovely shop, Fannie and Fox, that I discovered on my walk through Penryn.

Sun Shimmers, Flower Wall and A Robin

The light along the Penryn River was lovely this morning.One of the house boats on the river has a vertical flower bed which is quite delightful.

We were visited by a very friendly Robin while having lunch at The Pandora on Restronguet Creek.

Another Lunch, Bouquet and Bias

I met the lovely Mr S for lunch again today. He is working on the boat on Freeman’s Wharf, getting her ready for launch later this month. We met at The Muddy Beach Cafe in Penryn and had a delightful lunch of an excellent Tomato and Roast Pepper Soup with Cheesy Toast and Onion Marmalade!

My lunch

There was a wedding in the cafe yesterday and the place was looking lovely, full of jugs of Spring blooms and bright yellow paper baubles hanging from the ceiling.

The blackboard in the porch always amuses me and today I managed to get a photo.

Glass, Reading and Love

I put out a call at my choirs for bits of jewellery that were no longer wanted and last week one of my Suitcase friends brought me in some earrings. I’ve been working on a piece that would suit them and finished it yesterday in time to take it to show W at singing this morning. Thank you W for your beautiful contribution to my work.

I loved this when I found it. Reading is such an adventure for us all!

Reading

It was Valentine’s Day a week ago but these words are timeless.

Love
