I do have some things I want to show and share but as they are gifts - they will have to wait until the recipients have seen them first :D
Yesterday, after lots of indoor stuff
due to the rain being so ... well.... WET!
(sewing/baking and the dreaded tidying)
Finally by 3pm
the clouds suddenly relented and let in the sun and the sky -
Moss and I just grabbed the moment
(as well as a lead, some dog-poo-bags, sanitiser, mask and camera)
and yomped out.
I am not sure who enjoyed it more - she or I.
Despite the days and days of rain we seem to have endured,
the rivers - although full - were not raging.
They were a perfect 'come and play with me' depth for Moss,
and she heeded their call.
Her inner otter and her alter-Labrador-guise both came to the fore
and she swam and played and loved every minute.
I personally preferred the meadows and the flowers
which have appeared in their masses since the rain.
The air, slightly humid, was filled with a determined buzzing hum
as the bees made the most of the dry afternoon.
It was such an amazing feeling being back out,
I just filled my eyes with the blue sky and blue flowers and my lungs with warm air.
And Moss? well, she filled her whole body with full-on-fun :D
Now, I must stop waffling, I have to set off soon for my volunteering stint at the community shop. A small price to pay - two hours - to help keep this amazing little gem open, so if you'll excuse me I'll be off. Oops, mustn't forget my mask :)
