Friday

I am glad you all like my new header and my new blog.   For the record the view in the header is of Wensleydale and was taken by the farmer from the side of Penhill, our local hill.   The two figures walking are his two walking friends as far as friend W and I can tell - C and R.   They had many happy walking hours together.

Today has been an almost perfect early September day.   There was a blip in the middle as we left our lunch place and the rain came down quite sharply for a minute or two, but then the weather improved again. 

Lunch out today was delicious - king prawns and chorizo in a thick, home-made tomato sauce - served with herb-sprinkled garlic bread.

This evening Tess and I had a lovely walk for a long way down our Lane.   The setting sun was low making it difficult to see but the  breeze had disappeared and it was quite balmy.

I have packed one box today and shall now go and sit down with a cup of tea and read today's Times.

You and Tess had a good day. There is a nip in the air. But I walked today without a coat.

Is that Bolton Castle I can see in the distance?

I like the new photo. It's a scene I can relate to. And it's says a lot about the Dales. And the people.

It is a beautiful photograph. X

Boy howdy Pat. It sure rains there often. Are you near the ocean? In Florida, it rains every afternoon, but briefly. Then, it is hot and balmy once again. Your header is a gorgeous view. Enjoy your weekend. It is a holiday weekend here in the states. Gas went up by about forty cents a gallon, so I'm not sure how many will travel.

Yes Sue - it is indeed Bolton Castle.

Donna - we are about mid way between the North Sea and the Irish Sea - maybe sixty miles from each.

Gwil - glad the photograph bring you pleasure. I know that you know the area.

Are you packing up your summer things, now? Hope you don't have to unpack any winter clothes until you are in your new place.

What a dramatic scene of rolling green hills and two friends walking. Thanks for your comment on my blog yesterday.

Cold here yesterday morning (8 C); looks like autumn is on it's way.

Thanks everyone for your comments

It is a beautiful header so very Yorkshire in its bleakness and long stone wall and the two walkers. Sounds what I would call a 'strong' meal, ie it would give me stomach ache, much prefer your salmon dishes ;)

I look at your new photo header, spread my arms and breath deeply.

I do like Tom Stephenson's comment and have a similar reaction to your photo.
Now that, according to the weathermen, autumn has arrived the weather here is distinctly summery! Better late than never.

The Weaver of Grass said...

Yes - lovely day here Tom so we could all do with a few deep breaths - they would serve us well in the bleak days to come.
Thanks to you all for calling in.

Very hot and sunny in Kent yesterday (Friday), heavy thunderstorm and rain at midnight and sunny and warm again today.
I notice in my paper that there is now a shortage of salmon and therefore prices will be rising, is that the reason that it has stopped appearing on your daily lunch lists.
