Out and about

We have been spending lots of time outside the past few days. We have found a place not too far from where we live that we both love. It is a meadow with a very small pond bordering some other meadows where cattle are grassing on one side and a small forest on the other side. We have very little wild nature where we live so it’s great to find a place like this where you can go and enjoy a bit of at least partially wild nature. We always bring a blanket and books.

On our way there we usually go past this playground where A likes to climb a little before we move on. She enjoys playgrounds a lot, even if there are no other children, but she likes them even better if there are some kids to play with. Yesterday she got lucky.

We also met a woman who was walking her dog. A loves dogs, especially if she gets to play with them and this one was very amiable and really liked playing.

We often don’t leave the house till well past midday since we’re both slow risers and we are definitely B-people. Thus, A likes to spend her mornings like this:

And I like to spend my mornings quietly with time to read and write, do projects and practical stuff and with a good cup of coffee.

There are lots of wild flowers on the meadow we pass to get to our little place and on the way home we picked some of them.

The forest where my parents live is a wonderful place to go for a walk. A and I always go there when we visit. I took these pictures last time we were there.
