Toast, Cousins and Hide and Seek

The bread we made together yesterday was mostly little slider buns for 4th July with a bit shaped by Littlest Live-wire into a boot shape. Today that made a pair of toasted boots.

This is the first time we have seen the cousins together since B was born. This time they are old enough to play together, here Littlest Live-wire is watching No 2 Live-wire with his construction set, K’Nex.

Hide and seek is great fun among the plants!

Little Hands, Nasturtiums and Poppies

Littlest Live-wire and I made bread this afternoon, her first time and she loved kneading the dough. I just love her little dimply knuckles!

This year I have used Mum’s old pan stand not for beans but for Nasturtiums and they are beginning to make the show I was looking for.

There are just two Poppies left, a red and a white, close together and beautiful.

There was a Ladybird on the Borage this morning.

Littlest Live-wire, her Mum and our eldest daughter all arrived last night to meet up with The Best Beloveds – the house is filling up! Daughter No 2 will arrive tomorrow evening with her Live-wires. Let the fun begin! Here is the hair band I made last week in situ.

Despite the mist obscuring the sea this morning we went down to the beach for Littlest Live-wire to play in her “massive sandpit”. In this photo she is wearing a Clothkits hoodie that I made for our eldest about 40 years ago! Each of our four wore it, J, Live-wire 2 wore it a couple of years ago and it is still going strong!

Our Sweet peas are blooming lovely!

The horses are back the field behind us.

Another Pub Lunch, Hedgerow Smells and Peace Songs

We met our Best Beloveds at The Pandora Inn today for a lunch in the most beautiful place you can imagine. Enjoy the gallery.

My eleven year old and much loved Beetle Cabriolet has a non-functioning soft top! However, I love how the windows open so completely allowing the wonderful scent of Summer hedgerows into the car. I so wish I could bottle it for you and share it. It is intoxicating!

 

Tonight at choir  we sang songs of peace in honour of our friend Paul who is about to embark on a walk from Rome to Jerusalem, a walk of about 1500 miles in the name of Peace and Reconciliation. I so admire what he is doing and will post more shortly about his endeavours.

Delicious Desserts, Pub Lunch and King Harry Ferry

Last night was our lovely friend, N’s, birthday party and what an array of delicious desserts were on offer. The curries, lasagne and salads were scrumptious too!

Our Best Beloveds are with us, my brother and SIL, from Atlanta USA and we are visiting lovely places and eating out more than usual. Today we went over the King Harry Ferry to meet them for lunch at a lovely old pub, The Roseland Inn in Philleigh.

Coming home through the lanes and driving down to the ferry, I thought you might like to come with us – especially for Shelagh and Calvin.

Trelissick House, View and Gardens

We had a lovely morning with my brother and SIL having a first visit inside Trelissick House since some rooms have been open to the public, then around the gardens and up to the old Cornish Apple Orchard. Click on any photo for the caption.
