The header photo was taken on Gwithian Beach, Cornwall, one of our favourite beaches. I love the reflections on the sand.  Below is Continue reading “#SundayStills – A Few Favourite Shots”

This weeks theme is…

Yellow Autumn Or Leaves

This is such a beautiful theme for me personally, as leaves are from one of my most favourite and loved things in the world – Trees

It’s wonderful how in autumn, when leaves are beginning to fall and wither away, how nature wants to give them one last burst of life and colour

From deep green to bright yellow, turning to brown then falling…

Autumn, along with rain and dull skies, usually gives us intermittent bursts of blue skies too, just to give that extra wow factor as you look up…

This weeks theme is…

Favourite Sports and/or Hobbies

This may be a long one, oh heck where do I start?  As a child I was never still, always doing something, trying new things and I guess, as a 54 year old, nothing has changed there 😀

Drawing & Painting

My dad was a very good artist, I guess he passed that love of drawing down to me, because I have been known to sit and sketch and get totally lost in it.  I particularly love to draw animals.

I have a diary which I started when my two boys were little, hopefully one of them will want it when I pop my clogs.  I write about what’s happening in mine and my families’ lives and accompany the writing with little drawings.  They’re not brilliant drawings, but I enjoy creating this book to pass on for my boys in the future.  Here’s a little sneaky peek Continue reading “#SundayStills – Favourite Sports or Hobbies”

Scenes of #Stillness

When I think of the word – Stillness I’m taken back to many memories of where I have stood or sat in a place and realised there was no or very little noise, no movement, just enough silence for me to close my mind and to absorb what was around me, the breathtaking scenery, nature – the beauty that is our planet.

It’s important for your health and mind to take yourself to places of stillness as it’s a fabulous time to… Continue reading “#SundayStills – Scenes of Stillness”
