View The Day.

Hi Peeps, . Oh my goodness….Red Sky In The Morning, Sailors’ Warning. . That was what happened here this morning. A most beautiful sky, but what does it presage for us. . Everything is covered in frost this morning, and it feels like that includes myself! . The central heating is still programmed to switch […]

What A Treasure!

Hey, . We are now at the midpoint of the week, but I am beginning to think that the promised period of Indian Summer may not be going to happen for us. . Yesterday was mostly cloudy and not too warm. . We did manage to have a longish walk but I started out with […]

Those Were Good Days.
