Celebrate the small things

How can it possibly be Friday again? And the end of September? But it is . . . and so it's time to celebrate the small things that have made the week memorable or simply made us smile.

The week started well with an unexpected get together with some friends. Sometimes I think the unplanned met-ups can be the most fun.

I've managed three walks. One saw a little drizzle, one was a lovely autumnal afternoon and one was decidedly damp and misty but whatever the weather I enjoy getting out for some fresh air and exercise.

It is getting cooler and the evenings are drawing in but I guess that is to be expected. We are definitely into autumn. I am typing this looking at the trees behind our house and the rich browns and oranges of the season are very visible. Thoughts start to turn to soups and stews and other comforting foods.

I am looking forward to Sunday as we are meeting up with our daughter for the day and having a belated 21st birthday lunch with her.

Happy Friday

  2. Hi Suzanne - congratulations to you and your daughter - 21 is a good milestone in life: enjoy whatever celebrations are taking place. The season of life is turning - the trees are definitely dropping their leaves ... I think one just absorbs nature's days moving on ... and perhaps living in a town, albeit one with a lot of park space, the days sort of wander along. It is beginning to get nippy especially if the sun doesn't appear ... cheers and a very happy weekend ... Hilary

  3. My husband has started dragging me out of bed at 6.30am every morning to go for a walk - I grumble, but once I see the amazing autumn sunrises, I feel better. And I made stew for the first time this year last night! I hope you have a fabulous weekend celebrating with your daughter :)

  4. Happy Birthday to your daughter! I'm sure lunch out will be a lot of fun! And it's great to get together with friends. Nothing de-stresses me like gabbing with the girls! It's not quite cool enough to enjoy walks here, but I'm going on a few anyway. Enjoy walks and soups and stews! :)
