Seven Days












 Wow - March is already well underway, and there is a definite feeling of Spring - despite the gales and hail and stormy weather we have had in the last seven days.  I have written written quite a few posts this week, but there are still  a few pictures of special everyday joys that I want to share :

Like - taking time out one morning, just me and the dog, to head up the coast a few miles, and check out a place I hadn't been, but wanted to see.  The Norse Mill and Kiln as Siabost.

Or - just watching the weather change almost by the minute - four seasons in one day is so much the case here.

This boy's smile

Suddenly noticing the light catching a cobweb down in the barn, and watching as it turned into a work of art.

Marvelling at the vibrant colours of nature's pallette.

Swooning at the deliciousness of this just made custard and raspberry tart at the visitor centre cafe

And just enjoying the happy sight of a vase of pussy willow on the window sill

Nothing special - but completely precious.  I wish you Seven Days full of joy and blessings. xxx

    1. Hi Robyn - yes i really liked Arnol, and I have been a few times. I would love to sit fro a while in that house beside the fire. Garenin is good too, but different, and I love the iron age house at Bosta.

  9. This is one of the joys of blogging...taking moments to really see what is around us! Thanks for sharing but I do with I could taste that custard-raspberry tart for myself. :-)

    It is so much spring here in Holland that we had our lunch in the garden for my Sunday sip.

  17. Thanks all for your lovely comments. james is shooting up - I can't get trousers with long enough legs and a small enough waist. He is going to be a bit of a beanpole I think xx

  18. I so love your life, and love your energy to serve it to use exquisitely via this blog of yours. I never replied to you about your suggestion that I come knit while bringing in the peat at your croft. Maybe one day sister ! Maybe one day ! xJen

  19. I meant 'serve it to us', not 'serve it to use'...trying to be poetic and I totally blunder'd. bah !!!

  20. Interesting photographs...are they polaroid or created using some photoshop effects? Either way, they're great! I love the first one with the huts best.

  21. Love your series of the week. The weather changes sound very much like ours. I don't know if we should be wearing short sleeves or coats, sandals or boots..and always having an umbrella at the ready.
