Ready, Set, Gone!

The weather is so beautiful today that I headed out early to catch up with my favourite walking companions — here’s one of them making a dash down the lane. We did a bit of berry browsing as we walked. These sloes will be ready as soon as we get our first hard frost, which will…

Wickercycle

    I am loving our autumn — crisp, sunny days, with leaves just beginning to turn. It feels good to be outside, and I’m looking for any opportunity to be out and about. No big adventures today, just a bit of shopping and a few errands, including my annual pilgrimage to Moore’s Shoe Repair to…

Super Moon

It was worth waking up for! We watched this glorious heavenly display from the comfort of our bedroom, this harvest moon fully eclipsed out our back window while Venus shone in on us from the east. Looking heavenwards, I felt my connection to my far-flung spirit family, knowing that they were also witnessing and celebrating this…

Friendship & Ferries

After a busy and productive few days of work and friendship, we said goodbye over a special dinner before heading back to the ferry port at Harwich and waving goodbye to Els. She’ll be watching tonight’s supermoon eclipse from the middle of the North Sea while we’ll be hanging out our bedroom window here at…

Hatfield House Revisited

We don’t know how many more perfectly autumnal days we’re going to have this year, so we took advantage of the weather and our willing house guest to make the trek to Hatfield House and the adjacent palace and gardens.

Squirrely Joke

We thought we beat the squirrels to this wee hazelnut, but it turns out we were outsmarted — they obviously knew what we didn’t. It may look like a prize find, but inside that fine shell…. nothing. Zip. Nada. I’m positive I saw those squirrels laughing at us.

Sunset

We drove to the ferry port at Harwich to meet our friend, Els, who is visiting for the weekend. I had planned to show you the ferry, but en route we were so taken with the beauty of the setting sun that we just had to pull into lay-by so that I could get a…

Autumn Equinox

I really noticed the shortening day as I walked to work last night. A couple of months ago, the sun was only just setting as I headed home from class, well after 9:00 — now it is happening before I even arrive. Today is the autumn equinox here in the northern hemisphere (spring equinox in the southern…

Still Walking

Yes, I’m still walking, still heading out the door every day in search of beauty and adventure. But I’ve also been rather obsessed with some of my creative projects here at home, As I told you some time ago, I’ve always wanted to make teddy bears, and I’ve been using every spare minute to do…

Silent Street

  The internet is a wonderful thing! (Obviously, or this blog wouldn’t exist…) After my post about our morning in Ipswich, a reader did a bit of research and sent me an update on the naming of Silent Street. Now why didn’t I think of that? I had googled Ipswich, but didn’t take it any further….
