Weekend

Friday night, instead of leaving Hugo to make his own way home - we decided to pick him up from a circus event at Falmouth University.
We were all hungry & thought it would just take too long to cook anything by the time we got home, so we  popped into Falmouth for a bite to eat...
As we walked into the Gurkha restaurant, we discussed contacting the girls - but thought it would be too short notice...
Sime said wouldn't it be funny if they were already in there & guess what?

A lovely little face was peering from a behind a partition... It was Sal! 
 She thought she'd heard us talking, so what a great surprise... She & Ryan had just arrived themselves.
Sal got in touch with Rose & Asa, but they were just about to eat at home...

Sal & Ryan had a veggie thali...

Hugo & I had vegan bhuna...

And Sime had a vegan dhansak.

Lovely kidlets...

And lovely chap...

Yesterday, we had to work - the weather was amazing...

The field at the top of our lane, the clouds were dense & very dark over St Austell...

A rainbow in Portmellon Bay...

We could see the rain in the distance...

On our way home, the dark clouds looked like a storm was brewing...

Neighbours across from us decided to let off fireworks last night - they hadn't bothered to tell the rest of us.
The kitties were totally freaked out, they have never experienced them before. Flea ran off, but came back after another neighbour asked for the fireworks to stop & Boswinger became it's usual peaceful place.
They know we have cats, so could have given us a knock...

This morning, Flea enjoying the sunlight through the shutters...

Sime reading yesterday's news...

Reluctant to let go of my beautiful sunflowers...

Rose & Asa bought them for me when I was in hospital...

Lupin enjoying a sneaky doze on the table...

Beautiful boy...

Both boys love the woodburner... 

And we just love being at home...

Hope you're all having a peaceful weekend!

Loving those curies, I always look at your pics and think "OOh I could eat that now" even if I've just finished a meal OINK OINK
Mum - Definitely! Thank you, hope you are too!

Maa - Thank you & hope you are ok.

Jane - We were too... It's a shock when you are not expecting it!

Kath - They are fine now, I'm the same with food photos... My stomach just starts rumbling!

Nettles

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
