After spending last weekend out of the country, it was nice this week to take things more slowly and enjoy some simple pleasures. Because of course it was a The Rugby World Cup is finally here! weekend, which meant is was a where's my shirt? who is actually playing? who's on the bench? Oh, yes! kind of a weekend.
Which we combined with a soda bread eating, steak pie baking, blackberry collecting, local treats appreciating kind of a weekend. The blackberries were thin on the ground (or is that on the bush?): it turns out we were a little early; but what we found will go together with some apples in a nice crumble tonight. It was left to the view to provide most of the refreshment. And that it did. Every time I set out on this path I marvel all over again that it is within walking distance of our city home. A weekend of easy enjoyment, then, which we needed. A good one.
Monday is starting out sunny here: maybe I'll need to get back to look for those blackberries before the week is out? Whatever you are doing, I hope you find time for a treat or two: have a good one!
Last week Louise, Deb, Ruth, Helena, Sandra, Mary Lou, Maggie, Julia, Eileen, Ladkyis, Sheena, Louise H, Karen, Michelle and Susanne all gave us wave. How are you doing this week everyone? Any plans?
