L/R Ben Matthew Ryan Amy Grace and Hollie
All my little 'Munchkins ' together at the New Year.
My thanks to Sal for helping me to put 'The Secret Garden ' music back here on my Blog.
She is such a great friend and always there to help me out of my 'pickles'.
Thank you Sal
I was sitting here at my kitchen table this morning,, which looks out onto the garden and woodlands when I saw two brilliantly coloured cock pheasants. They stood out in their burnished plumage compared to the green of the mosses and grass. I dashed to get my camera and....you've guessed it...the batteries were low.
Another morning perhaps. The deer are easily seen at the moment and are browsing quite close in search of food. This winter has been a hellish one for them and yet...they still live. Amazing!
The photos I have included here are from last year. It was a busy one for having family,going on outings, so there are more to come for me to place on here as a record.
Some of you might know that both my computers went on the blink. It was only come the New Year when my son Martin, who is a technical manager in computers, was able to sort me out. He put new innards into my laptop and built me another computer in place of my larger one downstairs in the cellar room.
Having done this he saved all my documents and photos to disc and now I am slowly coming to terms with how to access them all again.
Hence the montage below.
This was when Ryan and Samantha took to doing some kayaking on the lake.
Once my 'old' toes are healed I am hoping to get out and about again.
Bryan bought himself a treadmill as this winter has been bad for getting out and about because of snow.
He has plans for me to use it too....oh heck!
I might just prolong the bandaging of my toes. hahahaha
I remember the marathons Pam did on hers in training for working at Disneyland.
I hope you enjoy the lake views on the photos and of course notice how all my little 'Munchkins' have grown. Amy Grace will be two this year. Tempus Fugit!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Toodle pip for now.
Ryan thinking about jumping into the lake to get him acclimatised prior to Kayaking. It took his breath away as the lake is only truly warm for about two weeks a year. Samantha took a panic attack it was so cold!
I suppose the thought of falling into water that cold makes them think more carefully whilst meeting offshore winds and the waves from the ferry boats.
We are so lucky to live near all sorts of outdoor pursuits.
Hollie wasn't able to join them as she has yet to learn to swim strongly and loose her fear of the water.
