In Print, Violets and Sunset

This morning I found the May issue of Cornwall Today in the shop and our project has a wonderful six page write up from Kirstie Newton with fabulous photos taken by Sally Adams.

The article about our project

I spent another couple of happy hours in the Cornish Studies library today finding more images for our exhibition and our programme – all very exciting and this evening we went up to St Agnes Beacon for a quiet walk together, no-one else around and found some peace.

Sea Air, Gorse and Waves

It was a beautiful bright, crisp winter day today so we decided a trip to breathe in some wonderful sea air was in order. It was just so lovely to be standing on the cliffs near St Agnes Beacon, listening to the waves crashing below and breathing in slowly and deeply, relishing every moment outdoors in the winter sunshine.

The gorse in the hedgerows was a glorious golden yellow, lane after lane lined with the golden glow.

After being on the cliffs we drove down to Chapel Porth where the waves were tipped with sunlight as they rolled ever inwards. There is something mesmerising and healing about watching the endless movement.

My choir sang for me over the phone again this morning. I so appreciate hearing them singing and am longing for the day when I can join them again, if only for a part of a session! Thank you, Suitcase Singers and Sue.

Birthday Cakes, Blue and Sally-boots for a New baby

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY READERS

1  Thank you so much to my dear friends who yesterday gave me such a lovely Birthday Party – to
J&M for inviting us all and for a fabulous dinner, to N for making the most delicious Chocolate Torte and to M for making a scrumptious Victoria sponge; that’s two birthday cakes! Thanks to G, too, for his clever sleuthing a week or two ago in finding out what my favourite birthday cake might be without raising any suspicions!

Thank you to you all, D&T, P&J&J and J, as well as all the aforementioned beautiful people for making the evening such a special one for me.  I’m just sorry that the lovely Mr S wasn’t well enough to be with us and that I had to leave early, being somewhat still under the weather myself. You are all very lovely friends!

2   Neither of us was up to a walk yet though the day has been so beautifully bright so Mr S drove us out to St Agnes Beacon where we had a three minute walk in the extremely strong wind and then were amused for some time by the antics of some model aeroplanes. If you look closely at the sea and sky photo you should spot three of them wheeling about.  To see a full size picture, scroll down to the smaller version and click on that one.   Both the sea and the sky were of the most intense and beautiful blue hues.

3   This afternoon I have made some Sally-boots for the Roberts’ Grandbaby who was born yesterday. Welcome to the world, little one. We share a very special day for a birthday.

I have to add another beautiful thing. I have just this moment opened an e-card from my dear Sister who lives in Hawaii. It is very beautiful and her words have moved me to tears – of happiness. She reads this blog every day and says it makes me feel not quite so far away. Thank you my lovely and much loved Sister.
