Seasons Greetings

Red Heart Sampler by HSC - done over one

I hope you all have a blessed and joyous Christmas,  may it be filled with love, laughter, and a bit of festive cheer.  

Christmas 2007
Cassie, Chris (my son), Blue, Poppy & Millie

Christmas is a time to celebrate but for me it is also a time that I like to remember Christmases past so I thought that I would post a photograph from Christmas 2007. My darling Millie is no longer with us but still very much in our hearts.

What a busy day Christmas Eve is for us at Trewoon. It is my husband's birthday, 64 today, and our wedding anniversary. We can never remember exactly how many years we have been married but it is 20 something. I know that it may seem bizarre but the number of years have never been important to us, life began when we met. We lived together for a few years first then had a very low key wedding in  the Snowflake Inn in Stowe, Vermont on a skiing holiday.

We have had lots of visitors today but we did manage to go for a long walk with Blue and Poppy.

We drove to the small National Trust hamlet at Predannack and then had a very wet and muddy walk, first inland to the downs and then to the headland at Predannack and back via the coast path.

The hardy, little Dexter cows were very interested in us when we walked past and they trotted over to see us.

Everywhere is very wet due to the rainfall that we have had.

The downs at Predannack is so beautiful and you hardly ever see someone else. The whole area is covered in Chamomile.

The scent from the Chamomile as you walk on it is wonderful.

Unfortunately we were caught in a horrendous storm. The hailstones (boulder sized) came down horizontally in the wind. The stormed passed after ten minutes or so and we were drenched.

It was worth it though for scenery like this.

After a bit of "rock climbing" over the styles we were back in the car park and straight home to peel off our wet clothes and a hot shower to warm up.

We are now off to visit family and I will be away from my blog for a few days.

Everyone from Trewoon - Nicola, Ray, Poppy and Blue wish you all a very happy New Year, may it bring you gifts of joy, health and happiness and lots of stitching time.
