Travelling, The Kindness of Strangers and Sky

Twelve hours of travelling, car, train (across the Tamar) bus, plane, train and bus again to be with our family in Granollers, Barcelona and to meet our Grandbaby twins, LiveWires 5 and 6! They were both still awake as I arrived but photos will have to wait until tomorrow.

There is work going on at the station at Granollers so there is no underpass but a temporary footbridge that has 60 steps up and 60 down! I managed ten and stopped for a rest when a young woman asked if she could help. As we arrived at the sixty down, a young man asked if he could help. Between them and their kindness, I arrived at my bus stop still breathing! This is the sky as I waited for my bus.

Front Door Window, A Tin and Gifts

The evening light on our front garden coming through the front door window was very lovely tonight.

I found a most appropriate little tin in my favourite haberdashery shop the other day when I was buying ribbons for the show.I have some little gifts awaiting opening! They are from our American visitors and for the core group of Perthi Kov. The opening will have to wait until the evening of June 8th when we are to have a Weleda Pamper Evening!

Carn Brea, Sky Kiss and Two Gifts

We had a windy walk around Carn Brea today, away from everything, to allow my brain to settle down! St Euny Church can be seen among the trees from our vantage point at the top. On a clear day the sea can be seen on the North and the South coasts but not today. As well as the views and the flowers  I found a little heart in the dust.

Then we spotted the Sky-kiss left by vapour trails in the sky.

Friends have been so kind and loving over this whole Until the Day Break period. On the first night I was given, by J&M, a lovely bunch of purple, white and green flowers which are still going strong and on the last night, a magnet depicting the strong women we had been representing in the graveyard with our March of the Women song( from D&R) Thank you all.

Bill’s Bequest – Thank You

Our lovely neighbour, Bill-next-door,  left me something in his will and I am quite overwhelmed. I can’t find words tonight. Simply, here is my very special gift of an original Tinner’s Hound, known to us all locally as a Welly Dog, given to me by Bill.

My Welly Dog

I will tell you more tomorrow.

Stained Glass, James Fenton and A Gift of Flowers

We have a pretty little panel of stained glass that hangs in the kitchen window. This morning, before the blind was lifted, the early sun was shining through and lighting up the engine house.

There’s food for thought in this poem, The Ideal by James Fenton and I like it.

This is where I came from.
I passed this way.
This should not be shameful
or hard to say.

A self is a self.
It is not a screen.
A person should respect
what he has been.

This is my past
which I shall not discard.
This is the ideal.
This is hard.

Our lovely neighbour Sue came in for supper tonight and shared a photo of some remarkably beautiful flowers sent to her from Heligan in condolence and in the memory of her very special husband, Bill,  who died recently and for whom I posted on 14th April.

A Westi, Thrift and An Easter Cookie Cake

We followed a car this morning with a little hairy dog putting its head out of the window. Is it a Westi? I’m not a dog person but loved this little head and the reflection.

The Thrift is beginning to bloom at Godrevy. Look carefully at the second photo and you will see some clinging to the vertical face of the cliff, almost in the centre of the photo.

I baked an Easter Cookie Cake for next door where all the family are gathered.  The recipe says to serve it warm from the container, all diving in with a spoon!

 

 

The Beach, Baby Bean Plants and Bluebells

I needed a walk on the beach today to blow away a smidgeon of my sadness and to remind me of the beauty of nature and the life force in the waves.

Yesterday we bought some Runner Bean plants – looking to the future when the beans can be harvested.

Our daughters have been on the phone today, looking after their Mum. Talking to T, LiveWire No 3, was such a treat as she recounted all her holiday adventures and then, by email came this beautiful photograph of B, LiveWire No 4, in the Bluebell woods. 

I’m keeping next door and all their visitors fed, making meals and baking being the practical thing I can do to help – Squash and Chestnut soup, silky smooth and nourishing and a jam pan full of Bolognese sauce.
