This Saturday, 18th February, was set as “photo an hour” day for February. This was a fairly ordinary Saturday for us, we didn’t have anything planned. Here’s how my day went.
8am: my day started with coffee while watching the birds in the garden. We’re drinking a blend pack from Pact Coffee at the moment, two coffees, one from Rwanda, the other from Columbia, with complementary flavours that you blend together to make a perfect coffee. A great way to wake up.
9am: still relaxing, finishing off my latest book, which was a good read. The post has just arrived, bringing postcards via Postcrossing from Portugal, Russia and Belarus. It always makes me smile to see cards on the mat.
10am: an exciting parcel has just arrived. It’s a bokashi composting kit. We don’t have a food waste collection from home, this will help us compost all unwanted food. The Bokashi bran will basically pickle everything so that it ferments and can be placed in a normal compost bin or be buried in the ground. I’m interested to see how this works.
11am: our rabbits, Toni and Cornelius, have been given the box from the delivery to play with. Bunnies love boxes so this is the highlight of their day!
Midday: out for a walk under gloomy grey skies, through farmland close to home.
1pm: still walking, onto field paths between hedges. We’ve walked along a disappointingly ripped up and fly tipped byway, and are glad to be out into footpaths. These are paths we’ve never trodden before, it’s good to see new places.
4pm: we stopped for an impromptu pub lunch and are just finishing our walk. I love the colour of these red stems against the bright blue sky. We walked just under 9 miles in total, a leisurely and enjoyable walk.
