An Ordinary Day

Off down the lane to post a letter. The weather came and went along the way.
Rachel of Slow Lane Life ll has lost her blog enthusiasm. I do totally understand how she feels. I generally enjoy 'doing' my blog but, at times, like Rachel, even though I have things to blog about I just don't seem to be able to get it together. I've been thinking about blogs I like to read. It's often the simple ones, almost understated, that capture a time, a day, a moment with photos and pictures leaving me wanting  more.
Meanwhile today has just been ordinary. The walk down the lane to the post box and back is about six miles,  During that time we had all sorts of weather with intense sunlight in between.
Dear Rachel, I remember a logo I saw once on someone's blog. B.W.O  (blogging without obligation)
It's hard to follow but I think it's sound advice. After all blogging is just a hobby. I think you should enjoy a blogging break, have a nice cup of tea, and maybe from time to time you'll 'pop' back to blogging land.. Like everybody else, I enjoy your blog and I would miss you if you didn't come back!

There's no shortage of beauty in that walk. And what a fun cup or mug.

I can relate to not knowing what to blog or sometimes having enthusiasm. I often wish I found it easy to put things into words, but guess we are all different - with different gifts and skills to go with that! would love to walk down that lane - we love being in that part of the world but with young grandchildren here it would be too much of a change!

Thank you for your kind words of encouragement - I knew people would understand! Yet blogging holds such pleasures....
Yours is a difficult one to comment in regularly, because all my comments are basically the same - using words like beautiful, stunning, inspirational, challenging, chilly! But I love it all. I'd live where you live in a heartbeat if it wasn't so cold or required quite so much hardiness and stamina!

Yet another wonderful collection of images. You are really tuned into the landscape now.
Won't the postie collect your mail when he delivers?

Rachel, it can be cold yes, but it is warmer here than people imagine - palm trees in Ullapool for example! I think the really bitter cold temperatures are further into middle Scotland. Here still benefits (while we have it) from the gulf stream.

Adrian, we could ask the postman to take our post I suppose, but it is quite nice to walk, or take our mail into Ullapool when we drive.

OK, I give up! What are those things in the paddock with the sheep? They appear to be vertical white plastic pipes inside a small fence.

Don't you give ever up (blogging), Annie. Your pictures always capture my attention and momentarily transport me to another world, better than the one I'm stuck in!

Thank you oldblack! The white plastic pipes inside the fences are trees planted earlier this year. The plastic tube protects them from the sheep that would otherwise nibble the tiny saplings. The sheep love the wooden fencing though and use them as scratching posts. They have managed to knock a number over!

What a beautiful walk to the post, so well captured. It is very different from mine around the block in suburban Melbourne, but I love the continuity and changes in such everyday walks. Jean

I love coming here and to Rachael's blog. It is a privilege to see other people's ordinary.
