If You Can't Beat Them...
... join them.
It is a stunningly beautiful day here, and as those have been few and far between for so long it would have been wrong not to have gone out and enjoyed it. We were too relaxed to venture out on an expedition. Instead we just went for a wander around our village. Explored some new nooks and crannies including some paths through the woods that we haven't tried before.
It is good to stop and look around and realise that we live in a beautiful place.
After spending years in this part of the country I never grow tired of the architecture. Maybe it is the Canadian in me just revelling in the age of some of the buildings. Or maybe I just know lovely buildings when I see them.
Taking the time to walk we get to see the finer details that are missed when in the car. Like that wee round window over the sundial. That is just so cool.
On our way back from the walk I finally got round to doing something I have intended to do for ages. There is a small library in the village which regularly has its books rotated from the county library system. The girls are proud owners of their own library cards. As voracious readers this was heaven for them. You should see how many books they came home with.
I think blue skies and library cards make up for no snow. That and eating candies at my computer. Sometimes you just have to do it.
