Today’s Walk, Donations and Growing Lambs

It was lovely that on our walk, while keeping two metres apart, everyone smiled, said hello and wished each other to stay safe. Here is a view from TheGreat Flat Lode looking out over St Euny Church  and over to the sea on the North Coast of our beloved Cornwall.

Last week, St Petroc’s, the local charity for the homeless, put out a call on Radio Cornwall, for towels and soaps. We put together a couple of bags but could find no way to get them to Truro. Today a young woman who works with the charity came by and picked things up. Being homeless in today’s circumstances must be just about impossible but St Petroc’s are doing a wonderful job.
A donation came my way today too, of some very lovely pieces of glass. These belonged to our Dear Neighbour Bill Mitchell and S has just given them to me and I thank them both. I think these pieces will make a beautiful Tree of Life.

The lambs in the back field are growing. We love watching them bounce about and here share a joyful few moments with you.

Shadows, Raindrops and Blue Sky

Going down the lane towards St Euny Church for our walk today, the low sun shadows were beautiful.

I love raindrops highlighted by the sun.

Although it was very cold and the wind bitter, there was a wonderfully blue sky and when caught in sunbeams, a lovely feeling of apricity.

Rainbow, Memorial and Sparkler

I just caught a rainbow over the rooftops this morning. 

We went looking for the gravestone today and found it.(See yesterday’s post)

We have just returned from a delightful bonfire party with lots of lovely neighbours.

November 5th was my lovely Mum’s birthday. As a little girl she thought that everyone was celebrating her birthday with fireworks and, of course, I think of her especially on this day, though truth to be told, I think about her most days.

Buttonhole Scissors, Tractor and Gravestones

I keep Mum’s buttonhole scissors in my sewing kit but have never used them for their proper purpose. The second photo shows how they cut just the buttonhole.


At Pilates this morning we were all watching the lovely old Tractor, a Massey Ferguson, being used to load wood for tomorrow night’s bonfire in Chacewater.

Our poster asking for local stories from St Euny graveyard has brought me a tempting family saga via Facebook so we have been down to the graveyard today to search out the ‘massive granite cross’ raised to the memory of my correspondent’s Great Grandmother. We haven’t yet found it but did come across a couple of stones we hadn’t noticed before (not surprising really – there are hundreds of stones from 1700 onwards!) These stones are to a Father and his two year old son and are, like many others, telling a touching story – yet another that I want to research more fully.

Truro, Quilting and Singing

1   We had a lovely day out in Truro today and the highlight for me was the …..

2   ……… Quilting Exhibition, Saints of Cornish Churches, in Truro Cathedral. The works were fabulous! I give you just a small selection here and am sorry that I didn’t visit earlier to spread the word about them. Sadly, today was the last day. I hope each quilt will be going to its relevant Church or will be displayed somewhere else as they are magnificent pieces of art. Do read the information about the particular Saint depicted and about the artist’s intentions.  Please do click on each photo to appreciate the intricacies and the beauty of these works of art.
