Summer in the countryside
Hello friends and welcome! It's a lazy summer day as you can see from our part time kitty, Mitzi who was enjoying stretching out.
We decided to make the most of the better day and headed out on an adventure down our wee country road and along a disused lane,
The blackberries were already ripening
Ivy covers an old homestead,
and the barley has just been harvested. We're heading over the field to the woods...
Splashing over the muddy river and wondering what lies beyond...
We felt like explorers winding our way through the trees and then the kids like to pretend we're being chased like outlaws, the sniffer dogs at our heels and we run like crazy and laugh and laugh at our silliness!
We're back on dry land and heading back up the road home~
If you need to phone home here's an old telephone booth in our neighbor's garden - these are vintage collector's items nowadays.
Later we called at my parents' home to see their chicks - these are a week old and just the cutest. The children really love them~
These are 5 weeks old and really inquisitive and so comical!
And 'TAH DAH!' Finished my woolie rug - just the backing to add
So the sun sets on a great day...
Enjoy your weekend whatever you get up to!
