Every now and then, I find a few pictures have gathered on my computer which I want to share with you but don't think have enough "in them" to justify their own post. Therefore, I turn them into an assorted mix, hoping my readers will find something in the post they like, just as you'd do with a box of "Quality Street" or "Cadbury's Milk Tray".
The oldest picture first: I
took this back in June - a reminder of summer. Only another 8 or 9
months before the view from my kitchen window will look as green as this
This was the unusually reddish-gold full moon we saw in September. Several of you in blogland posted about it, and your pictures were so much better than what I can produce. Still, it was a very beautiful sight (again from my kitchen window), and I decided to keep the pictures.
A really daft "blondes joke" comes to mind. One blonde asks the other: "What is further away from here, London or the moon?" - "Hello?! Can you see London from here?!" (I know, I am terrible with jokes. I never remember the good ones.)
During my Yorkshire holiday in August, I came across a notebook sporting a pattern of foxes that I really, really liked. I didn't buy it, because the notebook had only about 8 pages and cost nearly a fiver - way over the top. But the effect it had on me was that now I was looking for Things With Foxes on them everywhere - the right kind of fox pattern, not just any image of a fox.
The day after I returned from England, I went into town for some errands and happened to spot this mug in a shop I normally don't visit regularly. I simply had to buy it, and find it so fitting for autumn (although of course foxes are there all year round). I've been drinking my morning coffee from this mug every morning since then, and you know what my preferred reading material is to go with my first morning coffee? Your blogs!
The last of the three dresses I brought from England. This was, I think, a particularly good find at "Monsoon" in Harrogate. It does not show properly in the picture, but the fabric is textured, and I think the whole piece has something of Star Trek about it. Couldn't I be a Science Officer aboard Deep Space Nine in that?
That's it for now. Next up should be the woodland walk we went on last Saturday.
