The week has just flown by. I was hoping to do an "Around the Croft" post, so my camera was filled with photographs intended for that. I did think about doing that today instead, but then....what about those other images that might not fit into a post later on? Hmmm - Sunday, for me, is about looking back and appreciating those ordinary but special moments over the past week, and anticipating the joys and excitement of the new. So, Around the Croft will appear early in the week, and today I give you Seven Days - crammed into Three :)
The evenings are noticeably longer now. This was taken at around 5 pm - already I can see the movement in the Earth's axis, as the sunset moves further and further Westwards.
And on the other side of the house - East facing -the sky is suffused with a glorious pink light - see how it makes those rushes glow. (Sorry about the window reflection, but I couldn't resist sneaking this snap of John taking it all in.)
And talking of John - is that a birthday cake or a meringue?* You're right - it's a Birthday Meringue! Very decadent and delicious it was too.
We had a touch of frost - Only the second frost I can think of this whole winter. It has been so mild and wet - such a difference to last year's snow and ice.
But we took advantage of some blue sunny skies and nipped off for a wander along the beach.
We had a proper baking day, so the tins are nicely filled - for a wee while...
And I spent a long time trying to capture the power and beauty of the Atlantic rollers - but you really had to be there.
Just a few moments from our week here. Ordinary moments that filled my days with joy. I wish you all a wonderful seven days ahead. xxx.
*Scottish joke reference. A man walks into a baker's shop, points at a cake and asks the assistant
"Is that a doughnut or a meringue?"
The woman replies
"Naw - yer right - it's a doughnut"
Really needs to be said in a Glaswegian accent to be appreciated.
