It has been so wet for so long and some of the woodlands near me are looking particularly lush and mossy – elves and fairies peeping out from behind every tree and fern.
To give everyone in my daughter’s family a much needed break from the rigours of home learning, I have taken two of my grandchildren out for a ‘keep-your-distance-walk’ a few times.
Little Miss M and Master R love to draw and grasp every opportunity, so when they found some chalk on the ground ….
This is one of the cyber characters that inhabit Master R’s imagination
and then – throwing the chalk at the tree to make marks was a good game too – who could make the highest mark, how far away could they stand and still hit the tree?
(Yes I did knit the bobble hat 🙂 )
And something to melt any Granny’s heart – a card from Little Miss M
She had made one for both of her Grannies. Awww! ❤
You might remember that Little Miss M and I are walking 500 miles together – You can go to this link to see a wonderful walk we did in March 2019.
We did not add many miles to our total last year (I wonder why?!) but we are both determined to do more this year.
Our total to date is 133.5 miles, only 366.5 to go!
Have you been able to go out for any walks this week?
Welcome to the Monthly Meet-Up Photo Challenge, posted on the first Tuesday each month. The theme of WINDOWS is running throughout the year.
To join in please leave a link to one of your posts which includes a photo of a window. The post can be current or archive – sometimes it is fun to look back through your photos and old posts and rediscover them.
Three from me today:
Greenhouse shading creating pattern and atmosphere at Kingston Lacy
A window lighting the stairwell at Greenway House
And little Miss M painitng, looking out of my sitting room window a few weeks ago.
I’m excited to see the windows you are sharing with us this month!
Little Miss M broke up from school on Tuesday, for the Summer Holidays. As she is leaving the school, her classmates made her a card.
They each drew a little picture for her, and some of the pictures were of her.
There were more on the back
M went through each one telling me a little bit about it, she LOVES her card.
On the back was this picture
Little Miss M: “Look Granny, Elliot drawed me with no eyes and no arms.”
Me: “Perhaps he was drawing himself.”
Little Miss M laughed …… …. …….. a lot!
“Granny!!! It looks nothing LIKE Elliot!”
