I'd been hoping to take some nice indoor photos today, including a few of the marmalade I made (nine jars in total). Some of those jars are big. Even after giving some away, I need to look up some marmaladey recipes. Cake, buns, glazed ham... not too sure what else just yet. But it was worth the effort and the stickiness - it tastes wonderful.
Anyway... when we woke up the sun was shining so we headed out for a walk with Joe, to a nearby nature reserve-type place with a lake. You have to make the most of the sunshine at the moment.
It wasn't even that cold. We played on the swings and met some very friendly Canada geese. They're used to being fed lots of crusts by visitors so are happy to come up close. Joe was transfixed.
Then we had a little wander...
And someone discovered the joys of puddles.
Fortunately he was dressed for it. Almost.
Should have tucked those jeans in...
We got home shortly before the sky went very, very dark and the rain started. The wind was so strong it took our For Sale sign with it.
Things were really gloomy indoors and any photos would have been not so much moodily atmospheric as blurry and grainy. Very grainy. I could have set the tripod up and messed around with the exposure but... I didn't.
We may head out tomorrow for a few things but then again we may not. It's nice to have options.
Hope you're enjoying the weekend, rain or shine (or both).
