I don't know what I have done.
I could have twisted it or pulled a muscle,
so I am walking slower and trying not to exacerbate it.
Really must not complain too much as there are so many more serious things to consider out there, other than knee pain...
I'm sure you can think of a thing or two worse.
Aren't these wee pink berries adorable?
They are growing on a bush on a street nearby The Humble Bungalow.
Mr. HB made me a fancy cocktail...
a Chambord Cosmopolitan.
Chambord is a raspberry liqueur from the Loire Valley.
Here is a link to the recipe.
We used pure unsweetened cranberry juice and it is delicious!
The cooler weather inspires me to make roasts on Sunday evenings.
A free range organic chicken or a prime rib is a tasty treat at this time of year.
Yorkshire pudding is yummy too!
Root vegetables roasted in a shallow pan with a bit of olive oil brings out their flavours.
All the produce is locally grown.
It's important to support the island farmers.
This is the current view out the kitchen window...
the crew that are dismantling the home beside us have chosen a yellow dumpster which looks quite pretty with the autumnal foliage.
The noise starts around 8am and goes until about 4pm.
We will have two homes on this site once the building gets started.
Two couples eager to get into the housing market have purchased the old home from an estate for just under a million dollars!
(Our real estate market has been brisk but is showing signs of slowing down)
The couples have been by and introduced themselves to us
and all the neighbours near to the property.
Just down the street
there are 3 or 4 significant home renovation projects happening...
our little street seems to be quite a popular place for tradesmen these days...
Chester is not amused...
the constant truck traffic is disturbing his naps.
He and Pepper frequently sit on the front window ledges and keep watch.
Have you been watching The Durells in Corfu on PBS?
I am really enjoying the series...
I read most of Gerald Durrells' novels when I was growing up.
Peacock pecking on the ground in Beacon Hill Park this afternoon.
It did not seem to mind that I was slowly creeping closer...
He glanced over in my direction and then got back to the task at hand...
there were oodles of pea hens whose drab colouring helped them blend into the foliage also pecking for tidbits.
It was chilly today so I bundled up in a scarf and my puffer coat.
Purposely I chose a different route with varied and interesting scenery
I felt would keep me focused on distance rather than my pace.
I passed quite a few walkers who were also enjoying the park.
Hope your week is off to a great start.
