Summer Loving

Evening walks


Soft feathery grasses




A beach bag ready to go.



A visit to the sports centre in town.




A rainy morning brainstorming session.


Hens and cockerel pecking by the front door - deck scrubbers too!



and looking forward to another week.


Summer is such a busy time, and so much is going on that I want to hold on to. Each Sunday I am posting a list of things I have loved in the past week.  Those ordinary but special things that might have gone unnoticed or forgotten  Trying to distill the love and joy from this hectic Summer season to remember with gratitude and warmth when the days are short again.

  8. I just love the way you have manipulated that first photo; sums it all up. I too keep a journal of activities, thoughts and feelings ('Morning Pages'); it used to be daily but now I don't have the time, but at least once a week now. Over the years, these jottings have become a perfect record of what we do, and don't do.

    I think of you frequently, last night as we sat in the garden until almost ten pm and I wondered when it got dark with you. Here's to Summer happiness.

  10. Hi - thank you all. I so enjoy looking at the camera roll each Sunday and seeing images of our week - things that wouldn't otherwise reach the blog, but that I want to share. It is a lovely way to reflect and look forward.
    Ann - I don't manipulate the pictures at all. It was an old style lens app. I am getting more interested in using old film, so who knows what effects you might see! And it is not really getting dark here at all - dim more than dark.
    We are really appreciating it - thanks for your thoughts. Xx

  13. Glad you're thinking about using film Jacqui - still can't be beaten in my view.

    Getting it processed however (especially E6) is another matter...
