"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Sunday Stroll

The snow around the Lodge has receded a lot in recent days, due to thawing and lots of rainfall. We're having a sunny break today, with more rain expected tomorrow, along with flood warnings for our local river. Oh, dear....

The loss of snow cover reveals moss beds.

Preview of coming attractions.

Last year's growth on my honeysuckle arch needs pruning and shaping.

On our way to church, we discover that the ice is fully out on our little lake.

A portion of our road is a mud pit and deeply rutted. Barely one half is passable. A disaster waiting to happen. A phone call to the Road Agent might be in order.

We passed two different batches of turkeys on our drive to the village.

It's Palm Sunday.

I came home with one of these.

Jewel under wraps. We call this "Pig in a Blanket."

Ruth is ready to go. We call this "Piglet on a Leash." She squeals with impatience when it's time for a walk.

International Food Week is ongoing. Last night we enjoyed takeaway Singapore Curry Noodles from Ping's in the village. For tonight the Chap chose a repeat of burritos, but this time stuffed with spicy ground beef and veg and topped by a mole sauce.

Thanks for stopping by. For more strolls, head over to Aisling's blog.
