Brittany Day 2

We awoke to utter silence…. Honest silence!

And stunning pastoral views. We made our way down stairs to be met by a happy Ruby.

Well we were very lucky with our Gite which though basic was very comfy and well equipped.

What to do on our first day. After breakfast I took Ruby for a walk while hubby drove to the village to pick up some supplies.

The walk was lovely and the weather was glorious. I set my sights on walking to a huge water tower before turning round. Ruby and I nearly got there but not far from our goal we passed a farm. Just as I was admiring the beautiful garden the back door of the farm house opened and two huge black dogs rushed. I immediately put Ruby on the lead, turned and started to walk back, I heard the farmer calling the dogs back. They approached us, Ruby ever a lady greeted the older dog, he then left, the second dog a large Bullmastiff puppy was more persistent. The farmer called him, Ruby ignored him, me I was scared because he barking and jumping up at us, finally the puppy returned to his master and I said a rude word!

The rest of the walk was uneventful.

We spent the rest of the day, sunbathing, walking Ruby…no more farm dog run ins. We also planned where we would go during the week.

We were amazed at how quiet the area was, so quiet and at night so dark! We could see stars and planets! ūüĆü

Lune Day Nine

At Kat Myrman‘s suggestion,along with Jane Dougherty, I’m trying out the Lune form this month. The Lune is a three line poem, either 5/3/5 syllables or 3/5/3 words.

Always by my side

Ruby is

My love and my guide

A magic tree

Out walking this afternoon with our best friends and our dogs we found this magical tree.

It’s another reminder that Autumn is definitely here. Some children or young at heart adults had spent time to make a beautiful tree out of all the signs of Autumn.

I honestly think this work of art, and work of art it is, is proof that Autumn Annie exists.

As we went along our way

Out on our walk with friends today.

We found a magical woodland tree

Such a lovely sight to see.

Someone hand spent time and loving care

To let us know that Autumn Annie has been there. 

Sniffing our dogs, Monty and Ruby

Stopped to check if it was a real tree

And of course to have a Pee!

My sister has been into hospital and had an operation I have been very concerned for her but I am very glad to tell you all that the operation has been a success and she is now recuperating at home, taking things easy and doing her physio! Actually I do not know what to make of my sisters ! Another one is recovering from shingles and pleurisy together, yes together she never does anything by halves! My eldest sister not to left out is having heart problems I really need a magic wand to make then all better! OH! I have two brothers too and one of then is having serious problems with his leg! As far as I know brother number two is doing okay and on a holiday! ( Vacation to our American and Canadian friends)

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would ask if any of you remember Cat Forsley she had a blog on wordpress . She is a music maker and is in a musical partnership with Ashton Price known as ‚ÄúThe City Rumbles Underneath ‚Äú they have made several videos . Cat stopped her blog a while back because she was so busy with music and commitments that she just could not cope , I kept her email address and kept in touch occasionally. Well imagine my delight when Wednesday morning while I was at the gym I looked up at the screen and saw ‚ÄĚ The City Rumbles Underneath‚ÄĚ Hearts Expire come up on the screen. I was so excited I stopped my treadmill and rushed over to tell some of the friends also at the gym that I know that singer I know Cat!

I emailed her and told her the news she was delighted and she also said they were having more success over her in the UK than in their home Canada.
Here is the video I saw at the gym.

Thursday’s Pal

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE : I would tell you that I had a good afternoon on Thursday visiting a friend  who was at home doing a 4 day  dog sitting stint  for her son  while he was away . We  spent a lovely afternoon chatting and   looking after this charming if not huge  chap! He kept us very  busy demanding we play  ball with  him! Such a lovely  dog only  one problem he likes  to nibble, your  arms, your legs! Only  gentle  tiny  nibbles  but at 20 months old  and  with sharp  teeth he did manage to bruise my arm!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE¬†:¬†Ask you if you’d like another cuppa ¬†or another ¬†slice of cake or biscuit even, they are ¬†all home made and totally calorie free! Everything here is!
Friday was Pilates  then shopping and cooking  nothing special  but Saturday  well ! The Newbie, my son and his wife, visiting  my friend and her hubby and dogs, a walk by the river followed by a glorious sunset  are some of my favourite  things  and to get them all in one day is just so wonderful.
The Newbie  and parents  came round for lunch, they tried out the high chair  and cot we had procured. The husband  had lovingly painted  up the cot and  I  had cleaned  up high chair.   Both were a success ! After they left  the husband picked  some of our crop of tomatoes then we headed over  to see our friends  and their lovely dogs, when we left there  we went for a walk along the river . It was lovely in the late afternoon, Autumn sun glinting off of  the river. Then on our way  home  we saw  some amazing  skies!   Here are some photos!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would ask you if you would  like another  cuppa, or  another cake . I’d  tell you I have really  come to enjoy  these chats  and I’d  love  to hear  what you would  tell me. Please feel free to stay  as long  as  you like  and don’t  forget  to visit  Paul’s  post  now  while  you are  here!   If we were having Coffee  Original idea  from  http://parttimemonster.wordpress.com/

Wellington’s

Oh! Look at my Wellie boots they brighten up my day . When I am feeling sad and low they blow the clouds away.

They are my favourite colour a deep maroon with white spots cheering up my mood and filling up the dots.

The weather cannot stop me now and mud and slush will not slow me down. I shall trapes on and on about the fields and the streets of our town.

Now the best thing about my¬† Wellington’s is happy memories of the day, of rain and mud and true friendship that will never go away.

 

Thanks to Deb.
