I’m curled up under a blanket, central heating on, wind and rain howling outside, and wondering whether these photographs really are from last weekend…
They are indeed, although it seems pretty hard to believe right now! We spent the afternoon in a friend’s garden, eating and nattering and drinking tea and watching the frogs in the pond.
Just look at that glorious blue tree!
It does something to the spirit, sunshine does. I felt refreshed, renewed somehow. I’m pretty sure it slows down your heart beat.
There was even a little bit of bunting made too (not by me this time).
Now though, we’re all wrapped up warm, snuggled inside with our tea and knitting and slippers on.
I’m feeling quite smug, as I spent two hours running in the rain this morning, and came back so wet I felt like I’d sat in a (very cold) bath with all my clothes on. Goodness me, but I do enjoy running in the rain, I really do. I feel more alive, more adventurous. No photos this time – I did have my camera, and there was some quite spectacular scenery, but sadly it was mostly shrouded in mist. I’ll have to do the same route again in the sunshine one day.
For the rest of today though, I’m thinking another cup of tea, cooking some dried beans, making some bread, and perhaps finding that pair of socks I only finished one of… Good early summer, wintery weather activities.
What are you up to this weekend?
