Pear Tree and Plum —

We’ve just had a view from our former home on the windswept Isle of Luing —

Now we are bang up to date with the view down the garden from a bedroom window of our current home in Comrie, Perthshire —

They both have their time in our lives 👍

Seamus is back to normal ..

Out all night – comes in at 7am – scoffs his sachet of fishy food – demands more —

finds sumwhere comfy and sleeps all day —

I’ve decided it was a furball that was troubling him – he Has been molting and is a fastidious cleaner with that rasp of a tongue of his so my diagnosis would make sense.

As for my own after covid booster pains – I went shopping on the bike – got the mower out on my return – work it off if possible has usually been my motto —

Shame I broke my mower when it found a solid plastic bone – an unbreakable Loki toy – hiding in the long grass 🧐

Seamus is off his Food —

He obviously ate something that didn’t agree with him during his nightly prowl —

Came home this morning with an empty tummy looking completely out of it —
No worries – I’m not feeling so great mesel since my covid booster jab so now that the chores are all done I think I will join him on the patio — uh oh – that was a bad idea!

I can actually hear the grass growing! I either get the mower out 🤠

Or the bike 😎

Weird Weather —

It must be wild weather up in the hills today as it’s blowing a hoolie at times down in our usually sheltered back garden with wicked squalls passing through.

We were over by Loch Earn earlier and there was a whole wall of water filling the sky making it’s way towards us down the loch.

As good a day as any for Helen to finish her latest painting —

‘Winter’s Last Blast’

Best of Pals —

especially on an evening when the fire is lit —

But not all of the time as Loki can get very jealous if the usually independent Seamus is looking for a bit of comfort from Helen or I. The fire is a great unifier though the nights that we have it lit are becoming fewer and I find myself counting the logs.

Watching telly from under a blanket on the couch is becoming the norm of an evening 🤠
