Morning walk

I thought you might like to come on my morning walk with me :o)
 
Down the hill...
 
 


...to the roundabout, railway crossing and road bridge over the river...



...check for trains...

 
 
 
...the river from the road bridge...



...along the walk track...

 
 
...the river...



...the walk track...



...one of the ponds...




...over the river walk bridge at one end of the track...



...taken from the walk bridge...



...along the other side of the river to the walk bridge at the other end of the track...



...taken from the walk bridge of the spillway and looking back to the train bridge...



...back over the road bridge...



...up the main street hill...



...around the corner...and it's all down hill from here...
 
 
Congratulations!!  You've just done a 40 minute walk :o)

Sunday thoughts - The Home Friendships

Friendships in the family, require most gentle care and cultivation.
We must win each other's love within home-doors, just as we win the love of those outside—by the sweet ministries of love.
We must prove ourselves worthy of being loved by those who are nearest; they will not truly love us unless we do, merely because we are of the same household.
We must show ourselves unselfish, thoughtful, gentle, helpful.
Home friendships must be formed as all friendships are formed—by the patient knitting of soul to soul, and the slow growing of life into life.
Then we must retain home-friends, just as we retain other friends—by a thousand little loving expressions in all our fellowship.
We cannot depend upon mere relationship to keep us loved and loving.
We must live for each other.
We must give as well as receive.
We must be watchful of our acts and words.

(In Green Pastures - J R Miller)

Rainbow blanket

It's a rainy autumn day here, so what better project to be working on than my rainbow blanket :o)
 
I am using a 5.5mm crochet hook and one strand of white 8ply yarn and one strand of a random coloured 8ply yarn together.  I had to buy the white, but the coloured bits are all leftovers from previous projects.  It crochets up really quickly and is nice and bright and cheery to work on.
 
(the photo was taken yesterday when the sun was shining)


And I'm reading The Pineapple Quilt series of books by Mrs Cleon/Rebecca Martin.  This is the first in the series (seen here on my rainbow blanket) and I have almost finished the second book  (Footprints in the Sand).  I am really enjoying them.  I think there are 6 books in the series.



Despite having a new laptop (Thankyou Natasha and Patrick!) my internet connection is not very good, so  I  can only post here when it will let me...which is not as often as I would like.

So until I can get back again...enjoy your days!
