Life with Abigail and Barney
November is nearly over. There were some special moments but I am ready for December.
We go out for a walk every Wednesday, usually without fail. We have failed a lot recently, one walk in eight weeks. I have missed them and Autumn in all its glory.
I have been ill more times in the last few months than I have in the last few years. Why that should be is a mystery to me but I am feeling good now and really glad to be back to full health. It's hard being ill especially as a mama.
The weather has been like a sandwich this month. Mostly dry and unseasonably warm at the beginning, mostly dry and seasonably cold at the end. The filling in the middle a wet, grey, soggy mess. Two weeks of continuous heavy rain, every day. The field over the road from us became more lake like, the sheep marooned on grass islands. We were visited by storms, which now have names it would seem, Abigail dropped by I thought she hung around rather a long time, or so I thought, but then I discovered via a blog that she was followed by Barney, blowing the rain sideways and disturbing ones sleep.
It has not been a month for talking photos. The grey light and forgetting my camera making it impossible. On a rare occasion the light was good, I did remember it and took a photo of the beautiful sky, after clicking I got a message, no card in camera.......oh dear.
I am a home bird, I don't usually venture that far but November has taken us to two different cities. As a rural girl at heart I find them totally over stimulating. Driving through mile after mile of housing reminds me how different my life is, and I am glad to come home to the simplicity and the quiet.
I am ready for Advent now, I have been thinking and preparing for the weeks ahead. I will be back to share each week with you. But for now I need to get on with some sewing, I have presents to be finished to be taken away on Monday to save on postage. I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I will be back next week.
