Snowy Saturday

A little dusting of a couple of inches overnight, makes everything look very pretty, it's that light fluffy powdered sugar kind of snow. Still coming down a little, gray skies, and 29°.

A slightly later than usual morning walk because of our first Ash Wednesday service, bright and sunny and right on freezing.

No earpods today as I was lucky enough to have June come along and join me, however we have spent most of the walk grizzling about work ;)

Mostly bemoaning the fact that the American political system has left us with the choice between a dodgery old vegetable and an evil orange mummy!

Much warmer today, 35° now and heading up into the 40s. The ground is a little muddy but what you most have to watch out for is the frost heave that can snatch at your ankles!

Sunday afternoon

Not nearly as cold, 26°, and bright sunshine. A nice walk with June chatting about inline skating and various other subjects.

Saturday, January 20, 2024


Frigidly cold, 14°, but sunny. The girls are snug in their coats and it's very bracing!

Not listening to anything as my Pixel buds died (I think I need to clean their battery contacts) so it's just me, the girls, and the soft, cotton-wool crunch of the snow underfoot. Which is actually rather nice :)

Friday, January 19, 2024


A lunch time work because I had to wait for a service tech this morning, but it's nice and snowy and June and I are having a nice conversation. 

Snowing lightly and 29°.

Thursday, January 18, 2024


From June as I was taking pictures again:

31°, dimly overcast. The second walk of the day, as the first was interrupted when June found a lost dog sat in the middle of the trail, who has since been returned to her owner. June spent the walk thinking about the logistics of getting into roller skating.

Wednesday, January 17, 2024


Pretty frigid this morning, 17°, but the sun is out and it's not too windy, so I decided not to force the girls into their coats.

I am at Jackie's school today doing some photography, so June took the dogs to the woods- from her:

"42°, slightly cloudy but overall very bright. June spent the walk thinking about medieval fantasy and how much work it takes to make a decent video game."

New phone, Samsung Galaxy z flip 5, which has a much less higher resolution camera, but I think it'll still be ok.
