Then there was Bonfire Night. Isabel's school really pulled out the stops this year for a fabulous display of fireworks. Another wet night and lots more MUD! We in turn had our own fireworks party on Saturday night which my gallant man person had set up during the day hoping all would be well and you've guessed it...torrential rain all day and drizzle throughout the display. The sparks from the bonfire nearly set the neighbours on fire and more, MUD! I ask you where is all the rain coming from? I absolutely adore country living but I absolutely hate MUD!
Things have calmed down somewhat and I am now getting back to some serious crafting for Christmas. I have several works in progress but they are for 2 swaps that I am involved in and so must remain secret until the recipients have opened their packages and hopefully like what I have made for them.
The weather is now calmer but cold and crisp. As I drove home yesterday the moon was clearly visible through the branches of the trees that surround the house and this was 4.30 in the afternoon. My neighbour had a fire lit and the smell of the woodsmoke wafted over on the cold air. I love that smell.
As the night wore the moon appeared in a clear black velvety patch enabling me to take a picture.
Not a fantastic picture for such a beautiful object that shone down and illumnated the whole garden in it's soft, golden light.
And tonight, such a beautiful sunset, the sort we could have done with over the past couple of weeks!!
