slip sliding into winter

Each morning the view across the loch is different. Autumn has truly arrived, darker mornings. The wonderful long days of summer long gone. Sometimes we walk along the lane - I think Niels is looking at his kindle! Now, sometimes in the evening we light the fire and feel cosy and try to look forward to the long dark evenings with the wind and rain lashing at the windows! Though having said that, slightly tongue in cheek, there really is something wonderfully secure and cosy about  being in doors while a storm rages outside - providing the roof tiles and chimney stay in place!

I love Autumn and how the light changes, an afghan on the bed, wearing jeans in the first time in forever. Not looking forward to winter.
Great photos as always.

What absolutely stunning photos! It looks as if you live in a heightened reality (or a magazine). We are cosy indoors with the rain lashing down here in Aberdeen. I like the winter nights: time to knit in the evening and then sometimes the cat comes to curl up with us under the covers, which I love.

Great photos Annie and thank you for sharing! Love the stove and it appears a few IKEA items have found their place in your abode! It looks very inviting!
Winter is slowly inching its way here on the Pacific NW coast as well: rain (for the first time since mid July), strong winds and possible outage...Better have the generator ready! Oh the joys of island life...
Back to my cuppa,

Brilliant photographs as usual, but your post was made especially relevant to me by the fact that I am reading a book in which the characters gather in a small cottage in the north of Scotland under similar weather conditions to those you mention....and the potential loss of roof tiles is also raised in my book. You and the book's author both create a picture of winter life in Scotland which seems strangely attractive. I can't believe that can be true!!

I sometimes feel I could step into your pictures. Yes the winds are strong today but strangely warm. We'll light the woodburner next weekend I think and sit in the identical chair.

Hi Ann, great photographs and the house looks so warm and cosy ready for the Autumn/ Winter. Is that an IKEA chair? I am thinking of getting a comfy chair to have in the dining room in the winter so I can read and see the garden.We have just come back from a lovely hot week in Malta, quite a change in the temperature and weather with all the wind and rain last night!!

Too much going on so I have closed my blog and come off Facebook, family illnesses etc... and looking after Harry at least twice a week.Phil is still on Facebook and Twitter.

Waiting for men now, one to repair cooker, another to service gas fire in lounge.

Keep warm and safe, love Jackie.xx
