Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I got a lot of walking done. On Saturday we had dry and sunny weather and I walked good 21 kilometers and it was great. On Sunday it was a case of walking in the rain, but that wasn't bad either with my new umbrella to accompany me. My fingers are healing, for which I'm very thankful. I felt bad that I moaned about having to take cortisone, as there are so many people in this world who have no access to doctors and medicine, and their situation is so much worse.
At Tag Tuesday we are starting a new challenge, this time hosted by our lovely DT member Michele, who has chosen the them of 'winter scenes'. You have 2 weeks to join our challenge, and tags of all formats, 'real', digital or hybrid are welcome. Michele has created 3 lovely tags to inspire you, and you can see them on our blog. Hope to see lots of people joining in this time. I have an altered photo tag, using a photo taken some years back when we actually had some winter! It shows the way leading past the castle ruins, and always reminds me of Narnia, especially in snow. I added Erika in her winter finery, and a photo of my husband when he was about 18 months old, together with his much loved toy dog. The shadowy people are from Serif:
Today is also time for Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party, so here a warm welcome to all of the lovely ladies of the T Gang who come by. As always I have been fueling my walks with coffee, my motor oil, to keep me going:
I discovered some beautiful cups and mugs in one of the stores:
On one evening I went to the snack-bar with Nathalie for a meal and we drank cola with our meal:
The sheep were grazing at the Rhine:
January flowers in a neighbour's garden:
I walked through the fields and through the castle gardens and village at Kalkum:
There's a cormorant perched up on the tower:
Why did the chicken cross the road?
There were hundreds of swallows enjoying themselves in the trees at Kalkum:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
