An arrival and a farewell

Today’s guest picture is a glimpse of the Regent Canal at Camden, kindly sent to me by my sister Mary. We had been threatened by heavy rain and gales in the morning, courtesy of storm Dylan but once again we got off very lightly with no more than a stiff breeze and no rain atContinue reading “An arrival and a farewell”

Here yesterday, gone today

Today’s guest picture is a snapshot of the weather in Manitoba.  It was sent to me by Mary Jo.  It makes even a very gloomy winter’s day in Langholm look toasty.  As Mary Jo said, it provided an excellent excuse for a prolonged lie-in. These are degrees C. Shakespeare posed the rhetorical question, “O, whoContinue reading “Here yesterday, gone today”

Chalk and cheese

Today’s guest picture from Irving, taken earlier on,  shows the Black Esk reservoir, the source of our drinking water these days. After yesterday’s crisp and sunny weather, we could hardly have had a more different day today.  It was soggy, grey, cloudy and cold… …but there were compensations. It was a winter wonderland.  Or atContinue reading “Chalk and cheese”

Casting a long shadow

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s visit to the pre Christmas fun in Edinburgh.  He saw salmon being smoked. We had another frosty but bright day today with the temperature once again struggling to get above zero. Most of the morning was spent getting everything packed and ready for the departure ofContinue reading “Casting a long shadow”

All action

Today’s guest picture comes from my next door neighbour Irving who is spending the festive season visiting his son and family in Florida.  The picture shows some of the  20 to 30 ibis they see outside the house every day. We had another sunny day here today but the temperature was at zero when weContinue reading “All action”

Almost a white Christmas

Today’s guest picture, taken by Alistair, shows Matilda and her mother Clare enjoying a good book. The miserable weather gave us a break today and we even got a sunny spell.  It was quite a bit cooler but as it kept a few degrees above freezing, no one was complaining. After some early dancing withContinue reading “Almost a white Christmas”

That 11 seconds passed in a flash

Today’s guest picture was taken by a guest, our son Al, of a guest, his daughter Matilda. We didn’t really enjoy our extra 11 seconds of daylight today.  There were two reasons for this, firstly because it was so gloomy that it was hard to tell daylight from night and secondly because we were veryContinue reading “That 11 seconds passed in a flash”
