Day Thirty: Today’s photo prompt is goals for 2019 (if any). I tend not to set any new year resolutions, save disappointment when I don’t achieve them. However for 2019 I will continue my walking, and make a determined effort to get to 2000 miles in the #walk1000miles challenge. I was so close this year!
Day Twenty-nine: Today’s photo prompt is, this year – a reflection.
On reflection 2018 has been pretty much a perfect year! There may have been the odd blip (e.g. like the burst water pipe) but otherwise there have been many more positives to glean from the year than negatives. Below find a small gallery of pictures from the year.
Day Twenty-eight: Today’s photo prompt is grateful for? I am grateful for so many things, family, pets, being healthy and able to explore the world around me, but mostly I am grateful for the love of David. Without David I would not be able to achieve any of the highlights from this year (nor any other year). Thank you David for being amazing!!
Christmas-time is about spending time with loved ones. I spent my Christmas Day with David and our parents. I cooked us a meal with lots of vegetables and for the meat-eaters ham and turkey. Afterwards there was cake and a game of Top Trumps courtesy of RSPB crackers.
Day Twenty-four: It’s Christmas Eve, my favourite time of the year! I still feel all the excitement for the day before Christmas as I did as a child.
There’s nothing better than to sing Carols around this time of year, which is why we attended the recent Carol Service at the local church. It was a bit different from services I remembered but still a nice way to celebrate the season.
Day Twenty-Two: Today’s photo prompt is tradition.
In the UK, Chestnuts are predominantly seen as a Christmas food. In Europe the Chestnut is more widely used. In America, Chestnuts were a traditional Christmas food until blight almost wiped out American Chestnut trees in the 1900’s. Chestnuts can be baked, roasted and boiled, and have a spongy, firmness and delicate taste.
