Day 608 it’s snowing!!! and my first ever Fogbow! What a beautiful day! ⛄️ ☀️ ❄️

Wow nature is amazing… I’m just back from the most stunning dog walk through snow, fog and pure blue sky sunshine. I am absolute buzzing!

I’m really going to have to build in some time to delete photos every day if I keep taking this many. So I’ll keep the chatter too minimum today as it’ll take me hours to sift through the millions of shots. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️😆

Suffice to say I have a huge big grin on my face and am absolutely loving life. I just need to do this every day…. Not too much to ask?!? 🤷🏻‍♀️🙄🤣

It started with Calaidh barking again this morning. I got up to the loo and looked out the window… ran back into the bedroom practically shouting that it had been SNOWING!

Not sure why us Scots feel the need to share our snow with each other but we really do. In the next hour or so there’s a pic from each set of parents showing off theirs!

Claire did the Christmas lights in the Memorial Hall yesterday🎄

So it wasn’t heavy at all but we don’t care we share it anyway!

Our bamboo!

My wee 81 year old lady phoned this morning so I had a 45 chat with her and heard all her news then decided to head out with the dogs. Calaidh first.

It was freezing fog but so stunning and atmospheric.

Loved the snow on the dry stane dyke
A gate 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣
That water must be freezing!

So moody!
The spookiest tree ever!

All of a sudden on the road home the fog starts to clear. As I take this next photo I happen to turn to my left…

And see this…..

Don’t think this is the best picture but it’s the first one!
I “think” this is the best one

It was really hard not to get too much of me in the photo as the sun is right behind me casting a shadow.

The sky ended up clearing to blue above it

I honestly can’t tell you how amazing it felt to be seeing this. It makes you feel so very good to be alive. I am so excited on a day when blog content just slaps me in the face!

By this time the sun is huge in the sky

Craig’s watching the Rangers game so I come running in the house shoving my phone in his face, chirping like a budgie and Rangers score their second goal. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️😬😳🤣 least he was looking at a Fogbow when he missed it!

So back out with Bhruic and Freya but this time up the hill across the road. While I walk I’m sending the Fogbow pic to the family group chats…. As I look up…

Fogbow number 2!!! 😳🤯
Got another photo of it closer to the farm

And carrying on round the corner I see another one. Not to be fair… this could just be the same one moving. 😆

Fogbow number 3 or 2 repeated?!?

Wow, wow and wow.

I spent years driving to and from a job I hated, making myself ill being in first and out last, priding myself in my busyness…. because I thought that’s what you had to do. I never looked up. Never stopped to look at anything.

I am so proud that I’ve come this far and am able to feel like this about the sky… I mean come on. Get a room. (That makes no real sense at all but it was funny in my head?!)

The Fog’s still hanging
The Great Wall of fog!

Freya’s not impressed
I don’t ever remember seeing the fog clear like this

So now have my feet up in Gran’s chair.

The puppers are worn out

I’m enjoying a Turkish Apple Tea which Claire got me for my birthday.

And this is my view.

I hardly ever listen to music but it’s a playlist Craig made me for my birthday last year…. Each song means something to us… and it drowns out the football!!

And just like that…. Somewhere over the rainbow – The Ukele Boys starts playing! The law of attraction is amazing when you are in the right headspace!

Ours next door neighbour Holly provided a 3.30pm lunch/dinner…

Haggis, beeps and tarries with a whisky creme sauce!

It was the special in the pub this week. How lucky were we? It was so good.

The sky is darkening now. I’ve still to think about Christmas shopping, make tomorrow’s breakfast and lunch and write some words around my Fit Body Farm nomination and I really wanted to crochet today. But that’s ok. It can all wait.

So once again it’s nearly Sunday night and we face the week ahead. Remember if anything hits you that you feel you can’t handle, it’s only temporary. It will pass. Just keep on appreciating the present moment for what it is. Right here, right now. No worries foe the future, no shame of the past. Just what is.

And I’ll try and take my own advice!!

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
