Comings and Goings




Let me share a little of our comings and goings over the last few days.....
Master J has had a couple of flying lessons.




Those who flew out on Sunday returned bearing sweet treats from far away. However sickness has come for a visit too. Miss E was being very brave as she showed her chocolate medal. The three youngest are all unwell now.




The heady scent of Jonquils greeted me before I saw them on an evening walk.




The river was very calm, bearing reflections of the clouds above.




A lone cyclists heads towards me on the bridge as I turn for home.




Half the family are away this weekend for another cricket training camp.




Yesterday morning I headed out on a neighbourhood walk in search of sunlit flowers. The Jonquils are growing under some pine trees and were already in shade again, yet still beautiful.




I found these brilliant Poinsettias with raindrop jewels glistening in the morning light.




No matter what the coming week holds, I'm sure there'll be joy, beauty and contentment to be found, for all of us.

I like thinking of a place where Poinsettias grow wild The river photo is to dream on. I hope the children feel better soon.

Sylvia K said...

Yes, I hope the children are better soon, too! There's never a good time for any of us to be sick, particularly the young ones! Hope your weekend is going reasonably well regardless! I bet Master J is having a great time with the flying lessons! Terrific!

Sorry that you had unwell people at home when it probably should have been some down time for you with some of the house absent. She looks like she's been through the ringer the poor little thing. That Master J of yours - my goodness, he really does love his flying. And of course those cricket people too! All these shots are lovely - and is one of those posts where it feels almost ridiculous to choose a favourite - but I really do love your sunset shot and the one of the bridge, it makes me sense home.

My goodness, how wonderful to see Poinsettias growing outside. Here we only have them inside, and only for Christmas. What a sight this is.

I am sorry to hear that the little ones are sick. I hope they are all better soon.

Happy Sunday to you, and I wish you a wonderful beginning to your week!

I am inspired that you take time to "smell the Jonquils" and seek out sunlit blooms. You must be the multitasking mother of all times :) Absolutely beautiful photos and a peaceful feel to this blog that will stay with me today.
