Gorse, Sunset and The Mittens

The sun came out late this afternoon, for the first time in many days, so off we went to the coast for a glimpse of the ocean. The bright gold of the Gorse was lovely in the fading light having a glow all of its own.

The glow of sunset clouds is always a joy.

As we have taken all the cards etc down we have found the perfect  space for a beautiful little painting which came as a Christmas present, a delightful reminder of our holiday in Monument Valley. Our friends watched the painting being done and thought of us!

Christmas Boxes, Tree and Hugs

You may have read a few days ago of the Christmas Boxes we have contributed to, to provide Christmas dinner in a box for the most impoverished families in Cornwall. Today, they have been collected from all over Cornwall and these are the words of the lovely, hardworking organisers.

“965 boxes donated – that’s something like £30,000 of food, helping around 5,000 people this Christmas.
That is awesome!
We are so proud of the people of Cornwall!!”

Isn’t that amazing? What generosity from one of the poorest areas of Europe!

The lovely Mr S put up our tree today. We’ll decorate it tomorrow.

I loved the idea of hugs being like jump start leads. Thank you so much to the makers, creatorsneverprosper.

Glass, Sky and Playing

I have always loved Bristol blue glass having grown up with a beautiful piece which I have featured here before – a glass rolling pin. Find it here.

The sky has been clear and beautiful today.

LiveWires 5 and 6 have been playing with a shape sorter made by my Grandfather for my Mother to use in her teaching of infants. Then my three siblings and I played with it, next,  our four children and now it is the LiveWires 5 and 6 watched over by their big sister who are playing with the toy made by their Great, Great Grandfather. Isn’t that just wonderful?

Pac Man, Jewels and Another Red Leaf

The LiveWires were delighted to see a Pac Man in my coffee!

The multitude of Autumn leaves on the ground had the colours of jewels.

The veining on this leaf was especially beautiful.

Kalettes, Happiness and A Break

We didn’t realise quite how big the Kalette plants would get when we planted them in the border! It’ll be fun eating them in due course.

Just one of the three enormous Kalette plants

I shared the August Happiness plan with you some weeks ago. Here is the September plan, this time for self-care, something many of us ignore.

I am taking a break from blogging for a few weeks. I have published almost every day for almost seven years and it will seem odd not to write every day but I WILL be back in this beautiful Blogging Community and all is well. 🙂

Tandem, Weather Vane and Decoupage

On our way back from town, we came upon two young neighbours trying out the family tandem for the first time and what an enjoyable time they were having.

Having fun

Walking around Newlyn before going to see Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman at the Newlyn Filmhouse, we spotted a lovely weathervane.

In the cafe upstairs, before the film, we were both taken by the decoupage on the tables.

Decoupage

The film, by the way, is stunning,  offering an unflinching, true-life examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as frighteningly relevant in today’s tumultuous world.
