Soft

fading

The soft light of late August hints at change, subtle, but enough to know that autumn will soon be here and summer will lose her grip.

The flowers are dying, yet still the bees persist and feast on the waning lavender. Plums and apples ripen, ready to be harvested, some dropped and rotting, food for passing bugs and birds. The hydrangea are slowly fading like watercolours run weak with too much water.

Some days we might be fooled, almost believing summer has just begun, but Nature has a way of whispering the contrary quietly in our ears. Even on days that are oh so warm with skies the bluest blue, just wait for the evening, when the sun drops before eight and a chill creeps in through open windows, bringing with it the faintest scent of autumn.

Sharing my words with you, writing along with the August prompts from Amanda at The Habit of Being. I used today’s prompt ‘Soft’.

Quiet

031

There was a quiet this morning. An hour where there was no other sound, but the 7 am stillness of our home. An hour with the low hum of the freezer, a light tapping of rain on windows and a grey sky that made me feel safe.

There was a quiet this morning that was treasured. An hour where I could hear my own breathing, where I could sip my coffee and just think my own thoughts to the rhythmic chug of the washing machine.

There was a quiet this morning, an hour that was mine.

Sharing my morning with you and writing along with the August prompts from Amanda at The Habit of Being. I used Monday’s prompt ‘Quiet’.

Weekends

014

Joining in Weekends with the lovely Karen over at Pumpkin Sunrise.

The weekend has been slow, a really good, necessary kind of slow. Loading in washing, putting away the last of our holiday paraphernalia and not walking very far. We walked A LOT in Whitby, up hills, up steps, up cobbled streets, down to the beach, along the beach…you get the picture.

I am looking after the handsome boy in the picture too, he is a delight and a little monkey all at the same time, which makes him totally and utterly irresistible. I LOVE TED.

My husband and I reached our 19th Wedding Anniversary today, time certainly flies and how young we looked back then. We’ve had good times and bad {like all marriages} but we are still here and happy all these years later with our lovely son, a cosy home and a good life.

Tomorrow I return to work and to say I would rather not is an understatement, but work I must, so that is that.

I do hope your weekend has been a lovely one and I wish you a happy week ahead.
