Roses, Lunch and A Painting

The roses that the lovely Mr S bought for 8th September have all gone now but interestingly their scent has grown as the blooms have faded.

Last rose

I took a Lemon Cheesecake to a neighbours for a Wine and Shine shared lunch party today but forgot to take a photo! It was a lovely afternoon and the sun did shine for much of the afternoon and some brave souls went in the pool.

I thought you might like to see one of my favourite paintings, this one by Sasha Harding whose work I love. It is a delightful reminder of rock pool dipping in the summer. Our nets are all away in the shed awaiting the return of some LiveWires at half term.

Another Sunbeam, Baby Talk and Supper

1. This morning started cloudy so the low sunbeams when they appeared lit up a different part of the dresser highlighting one of my favourite paintings, only 6″x6″, by Sasha Harding, of someone enjoying her homemade soup. Isn’t it delightful?

2. Daughter No 3 phoned this afternoon and we could hear Grand-baby B chatting away in the background. She will be two in April and already has many many words, loving to repeat anything said to her.
3. Our lovely next-door neighbour brought our supper in for us this evening, a delicious goulash with brown rice, salad and plain yogurt. Such kindness from so many beautiful people.

Mince Pies, Sunbeam and Wheal Coates Walk

1   I taught my Senegalese daughter-in-law how to make mince pies this morning. They turned out beautifully!

2     Just as we were baking, a low winter sunbeam caught this painting by Sasha Harding. Serendipity!

3    We had sunshine  most of today before the expected return of the storms so we all had a walk up to Wheal Coates.  Many, many people had the same idea and A was delighted that everyone we met said Hello or Merry Christmas and one lovely walker offered to take a photo of us all. What special kindness to recognise our desire without a word being spoken!

Painting, Peppers and Peachy Clouds

1   This beautiful little painting (and it is little, only 6″x6″) was my Christmas present from the lovely Mr S. I love Sasha Harding‘s work.

3   As it has become dusk, (later and later each day, I’m delighted to report)  these peachy clouds appeared over the rooftops opposite.

Bathroom Art, Piano Practice and Tyangboche

1   I see these two wacky bits of art several times a day and they make me smile every time! The embroidered one, ‘a list of reasons to head for the sea’ kept me going when I lived out of Cornwall. The driftwood one is by Susan R Evans and we bought them both in the Art gallery below Leeds Museum many years ago.

2  I’ve done lots of short practises today. Below is my keyboard and another beautiful piece of art, one of my favourites, ‘ The Rock Pool’ by Sasha Harding. It’s lovely to look up at when I’m stuck on a piece.

3   Lucy and fellow trekkers have reached Tyamboche at 12,687ft  today. I don’t think we’ll hear from her for another whole week!

Webcam, Dickens and Peace

1  The Heligan webcam has given lots of birdwatching pleasure off and on today, thanks to the link from Shelagh, my friend in Vermont. (http://www.heliganwild.com/webcams)

2  We’ve listed to the two final episodes of ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ this afternoon. What a brilliant, atmospheric production.

3  We’ve had a very quiet and peaceful day together.
