I thought I must motivate myself to get out of the cosy house and walk today. I decided I’d aim to take three good photos to pop on Facebook. As you can see it was such a lovely afternoon and I took far far more than three (sorry!) and thought I’d turn them into a blog post for you.
It’s nippy today although it’s sunny, so I wore my Edenvale cowl and started off wearing my gloves too. But I soon got a glow on so didn’t need the gloves. The cowl is a really nice size, without being too bulky like lots can be, I’m actually tempted to knit another as I have some Stylecraft Aran. It’s not the quality of the West Yorkshire Spinners ‘The Croft Shetland Tweed’ I used before, but would work ok.
There were quite a few people out and about this afternoon. A couple passed me as I took this photo, she was wearing a very nice knitted hat: “They’re not really posing for you are they?”
I would say it was reluctant at best…
“Beautiful light today isn’t it?”
Perfect for photos.
Passed a lady with a very distinctive stripe in her hair and I said “Fewer photos – more walking!” She grinned at me. People are very chatty and smiley here anyway, but more so when we’re in Lockdown. I noticed this in the spring.
A couple passed, talking about very serious business matters by the sounds of it, I was envious of her tiny jodhpurs, neat riding jacket, boots and shiny dark hair swinging in a ponytail.
I heard an owl hooting in the trees, it was only just around 3:30 pm.
Can you see – I feel like he was almost smirking at me? I was saying “Come on'” Clicking my tongue and talking to him, but he also refused to pose.
I always pat this tree truck before I turn around to come back again. I usually say something to it as well – but that’s between me and the tree…
The Sun was really getting low now.
Hello again horses! (The other was grazing off to the left.)
I heard another owl loudly hooting in the trees alongside the road. Perhaps he was calling: “Time to go home!”
I listened. I’m Home!
I walked 5 miles, popped some packs of Lego cards, which came with my shopping, in for the little boy next door who only needs a few more cards, and put the oven on to cook a chicken. I’ll roast some Mediterranean veg too and make some fluffy couscous, with the lemony chickeny herby juices it’s going to be a scrummy Friday night dinner. Prosecco first of course!
Have a good weekend all.
Beautiful photos. Have a good weekend too.
What a lovely walk. I do enjoy your pictures.. The country side is so much better then in the city. But I don’t get out to the country side much.
What a lovely walk you had! Thanks for sharing it with us. Your photos are beyond beautiful, I love them all!! The boy next door must have been excited about the cards :)
There’s a foggy morning here but the forecast promises sun and blue skies in the afternoon, even though it’ll be rather cold. I’ll go for a walk too if I can!
It was a magical cloud day yesterday, we had the exact same sort of feathery ones. You have the most beautiful old trees there, they’re ginormous!
Isn’t walking such a tonic, especially when the weather is a treat xxxx
