Mevagissey Harbour

Monday's weather was really dull, but we fancied getting out in the fresh air.
Last week, we saw a grey seal just outside the harbour, but the photos & video didn't come out very well.
We thought we may see him again, but he was nowhere to be seen...

We love this time of year - when we get places to ourselves...

Yesterday, we had a full day out in the sunshine...
On Perranporth Beach...

And ended the day at Truro's City Of Lights...
Lantern Parade & switch on of the Christmas lights.

More to follow soon...

Bye for now,

Kay & Sime

Oh I know 2 dogs who would have loved that beach!

Some of your photos are like picture postcards.
Is that a ponytail I spy on Sime? Never noticed it before if it is.

The days do look grey - but wonderful photos. And a lighthouse too BLISS!
Love Leanne

Beautiful pictures and how lucky you are to live there. One day I'd love to visit, maybe I'll see you there. Maa

A full day in the sun sounds perfect! We finally got sun here & enjoyed it a lot today.

You live in such a lovely area. How exciting that you saw a seal! I would have been bursting!
Hello - we're being rubbish at keeping up...

Jane - yes, it's great outside of holiday season!

Kath - that beach is 3 miles long, your doggies would love it!

Leanne - Sime's had his ponytail for about 15 years. His hair used to be down to his bum, but then he shaved it all off!

Sue - Cornwall is beautiful, especially out of season!

Catherine - That doorway is in a cafe in Truro, we thought it was a bit like our dining room... But tidier!

Molly - It was incredible to see the seal, we had no idea there would any near to where we live...

Our garden yesterday.
Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.
This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
~ Edward Thomas ~
Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem!

Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine...

Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food.
Nettles are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.

Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx
