nice day for a walk


Couldn't believe it when I feel out of bed on Saturday - my sense of time is terrible (my brain is currently telling me it must be about June for example - another unexplained idiosyncrasy of my brain cloud), but the frosty grass and icy garden were also a surprise for the rest of the family!  We decided it was too good an opportunity to miss and raided the coat cupboard to find gloves and hats and scarves - even though everyone gets new things every year they must be eaten by that sock monster that lives in the washing machine, as we found seventeen gloves without a pair, and two hats that none of us recognised.  Also two identical scarves.  Perhaps they've been breeding in there . . .

Crunchy leaves and frosted grass in the shadows of the trees, and there's never a bad time for one of those brother / sister arguments . . .

Smiler made tracks pushing his wheelchair, and was very proud of his boss afterwards - 'fosty ... fosty!'  (We knew what he meant!).  Eli didn't even seen to notice the cold, focusing as usual on where the ball was and which direction it was being thrown in.

And a last favourite image - looks more Winter than Autumn, but such gorgeous light!  Everyone bundled up, red noses, chilly toes, breathing steam pretending to be dragons, pretty frosted grass that crunches as you walk, trees still dressed in their autumn colours - definitely a nice day for a walk.

    1. Thanks James - we're lucky enough to have plenty of open space just a short walk from our house, which makes things easier - when everyone has decided they're too cold and want to go home it's not far to go!
      Take care James

  2. What a great outing for the whole family, definitely a wintry looking morning. It's amazing how children are fascinated with how a little frost or ice can change the way they view things. Thanks for linking up and sharing your outdoor fun with Country Kids.

    1. Thanks Fiona - it was lovely, and I loved seeing the kids behave like kids - you know, chasing each other around and plating with muddy ice - I think lots of people underestimate the importance of fresh air and good clean 'real' fun!
      Take care

  3. Absolutely beautiful pictures, and what a wonderful frost! I love it when you can find a sheet of ice with frozen goodies inside.

    Popping over from Country Kids.

    1. Thank you - I think it's easy as adults to forget how exciting frosty mornings can be - we focus on defrosting the car, and whether this means we ought to give the kids porridge for breakfast instead of cereal, while the kids tend to see the beauty and adventure!
      Great to have a visitor from #CountryKids - I only discovered it a couple of weeks ago, but the posts are always so fantastic!
      Thank you for taking the time to comment!
      Take care
