Well it has been a hectic week, I can tell you. I really feel ready for this cup of tea. I have already blogged (if that is a verb) much of the happenings on the croft this week, but here are one or two bits and pieces that might have otherwise missed the cut.
The Autumn season moves on into it's second month - an Dàmhar (pr davaar), which means the rutting time. The leaves are turning now, and the browns and golds are covering the land.
While some parts of the mainland experienced an unseasonal heatwave - temperatures of 29 deg, I was told - we have been enjoying our usual mix of weathers here. Glorious sunrises, heavy rains and high winds, and then spectacular sunsets.
and the odd day of blue - blue skies - reflected in glassy calm seas.
You might have met the piglets in a previous post. They have calmed down a bit more, and there have been no more escape attempts today. Just snoozing in the warm morning sun, and settling into their house tonight - with a lot of jumping and running around in between.
We have had surprise presents in the post from lovely friends who are coming to stay with us in a few weeks time.
And we have played all afternoon on the beach. We never ever tire of this, and it really sets us up for another busy week.
I hope that the sun rises on a wonderful week ahead for you all. xxx
