Guess who had me out of bed at 7.30am … on a Sunday?
Yup … Coco pup.
We walked out the back to … snow falling.
Everything is white and I love the crunch crunch when you walk.
The street is so quiet and still and I just stood in the middle and enjoyed the snow falling gently.
I took a photo of Derek & Lynda’s ex cottage.
Back in and the fire is going … Coco and I are relaxing on the couch in our lovely clean cottage.
The big white blob in the top/middle of the photo is the nearly Full Moon … not snow.
I had an email from one of my dearest friend in Australia … Lisa.
She’s going to be in London at the end of February and want to treat me to a visit.
I’d walk all the way to spend time with her.
I was deeply sad to hear about the nearly 70 people who have died in the fires in Victoria (Oz).
Two of my brothers … Sean and Eamonn … have been firefighters for years and it’s just awful for the people who deal with the fires … as well as all the people who lose their homes … and their loved ones.
And the saddest thing is that many of these fires are started on purpose.
Our capacity for stupidity and harm never ceases to sadden me.
And … there will also be stories of people helping strangers … putting themselves at risk.
These are the qualities that make me happy to be human.
Have a peaceful Sunday.
mine is the pink cottage and Mags is in the red one
p.s. a half hour later and the sun is up … here are some day snow photos.
I let Coco run around a bit and she loves the snow … something new to sniff and play in.
Here she is in the background … obviously just spotted a bird … she goes into a pointing position and stands very very still.
Street still and quiet.
A Snowy Sunny Funny Garden
Can’t resist photographing the bare bones of trees … natures sculpture.
Mags shudders every time she sees these bare bones photos … she wants the lushness of leaf filled trees … soon Mags … soon.
And now Coco and I will relax by the fire … maybe go and build a snow person later … it’s really really cold outside.
