The Sea, Logs and Glasses

We love the winter when all the leaves have gone off the trees and we can again see the sea from our bedroom window.

As we drove into the drive to visit friends today, there was this beautifully neat wood pile.

Our friends showed us some beautiful old glasses with a flower at the bottom. The effect of the cut glass makes a kaleidoscope effect which is absolutely lovely.

 

Sunset, Christmas Tree and Kindness

As I left for choir this evening, the sky was on fire.

The children at the school where we rehearse every week  had been busy today decorating their Christmas tree.

I saw this the other day and loved it. I want our town to put the I into KIND on International Kindness Day next year on November 13th.

 

Christmas Crackers, Biscuits and Sunset

Lunch today was a Christmas one at The Miners’ Arms in Mithian with friends. We were delighted to see that the crackers were plastic free and a percentage goes to Shelter, a charity to help the homeless.   I tried to order some when we came home but they are sold out. Next year.

Tiny star and tree biscuits were served with the Creme Brûlée.

It was a long lunch and afterwards we drove to the cliff tops near St Agnes to watch the sunset. The tiny island in the foreground is Godrevy with its lighthouse.

Sunset tonight

Market, Parade and Happiness

The Christmas Market went well despite the appalling weather.

Part of my stall

It was the Lights Switch-on Parade tonight and my choirs were singing in the pouring rain but with smiles on our faces! The Parade went by in a misty blur.

It will be December tomorrow. Here is Action for Happiness’s advice for the month.

For my cat-loving friends…..  enjoy this.

Choirs of Angels

Glass all day ready for the market tomorrow – I now have a beautiful choir of angels – and then, this evening, I went singing with my beautiful choirs at Krowji for the start of the Christmas season. We can only sing in groups of ten so that we don’t block the corridors for all the people who have come to visit the artists’ studios. It’s quite a challenge with only two or three in each part.

Thanksgiving, Robin and Beech Tree

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends, family and readers across the pond.

After singing this morning, I was delighted to see a Robin on the decking just outside the door of the cafe,  Muddy Beach, where we all go for coffee and a catch-up.

After coffee time, I walked up through Penryn to call in at the gallery, Fannie&Fox,  with my new work as there is a re-hanging today.  Outside there is an enormous beech tree with some masts still hanging on. There are Christmas trees along the streets (but too soon to show such things!) and it seemed as if Nature had left her baubles hanging on the tree.

Red Leaves, Primroses and Jeremy Corbyn

The Cotoneaster Horizontalis in the front garden is gloriously red.

There are Primroses trying really hard to flower in our appalling weather, still gales and gales and…..

We have been at  a packed and exhilarating rally this evening. Hundreds queued in the downpour to get into the hall to listen to Jeremy Corbyn. We were then all treated to  a brilliant series of speeches.
