    Good morning everyone from a drizzling start in the dark and dangerous north

    The wonder wheel of home made bagels stuffed with bacon and eggs came in at 5.0 this am.

    We are going over to our little house on the prairie today - so a ride across the moors, just for a change. Garden centres have been mentioned - roses and shrubs entering into the lexicon. Best take my waterproof coat and a brolly (or brelly as one of our grandchildren say).

    Feeling lazy today so just a quick sketch. Hope everyone has a good day, Koffy time.

    5.0 this morning. We are off shortly to Sheringham Park - it looks like it is going to be a lovely day for walking.

    Thank you. Sure is a great season we are entering, just a shame that winter and its long dark nights follows.

    Thank you. The car - Kia Sportage GT-Line CDI- is being "treated" with goodness knows what to protect paintwork and leather seats from birds and grandchildren respectively so we'll pick it up next Friday. Julie did all the test driving as she finds some cars difficult for her back and we were scrapping her car. I am hoping to throw some money at the 04 Range Rover which I so love driving. No dogs in the new car so the RR is ideal. Enjoy Sheringham Park but don't try to walk too far on those 14 calories.:angelic:

    Good Morning and 6.2 for me today. So that thin slice of Grandaughter's Chocolate Birthday cake (plus sneaked little piece Mrs MC didn't know I nicked) didn't result in terrible BG result. :)

    Meeting a couple today for Recorder Quartet Rehearsal this afternoon, well more about keeping our hand in I suppose as no gigs. Playing outside, pleanty of room and looking at Covid figures it will be the last time for quite some time:(.

    Do the best you can to harness time but mostly be content to follow the paths that it is going. Keep Safe.

    Fbg 6.4

    Been tidying in the garage since dawn...

    Found some paintings I am going to throw away. I made them last year, I think, from Autumn leaves in the garden.
    I always intended doing a 'real' painting from them, so I have now in Procreate. I had fun doing this in Procreate, like a finger painting. Nothing serious, just messing and playing.

    Morning, didn't realise it was Sunday ;)

    A straight 6.0 today which is fine for me.

    I have decided to upload my art to Instagram so if you have IG and wish to join me you can find me at Alien_Aspie_Art :) There is a massive digital art community on there (just #digitalart and find millions) so I am jumping in the water with that lot. My Ruth Bader Ginsburg painting received a like within a minute so it might be worth trying if you want to share your work farther afield. I'm happy to link to any of you (ain't fussy me :))

    Enjoy the day

    Thanks Ian, yep I'm in a good space today. I enjoy new ventures and seeing fast results. Because my social life is entirely online I get excited when I find a new community, and finding 21 million amateur artists in one place brought a smile to the ol' fizzog :)

    Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen.
    This could well my last post for a time, phew that's a blessing a few will say. Me and me's will be wandering off into the Internetty unknown for a time. Just not sure about access at the moment. If me and me's can login we will.

    Well after an interesting night yesterday an 8.8 this morning, sympathy definitely not required, according to my diabetic consultant anything below a 10 for me is a good score.

    Well have a good afternoon and remember to order your sprouts ready for 1st December.

    The car sounds really good.
    Sheringham Park didn't go as planned. After an hour's walking Archie the older Labrador suddenly had a runny tummy and looked quite ill. He couldn't walk.back and laid down on the path. Mr K went for help and a Ranger came to pick us up and drive us back to our car.

    Our vet says to starve him and let him rest but if he takes a turn for the worse to bring him straight in. He is sleeping peacefully now so hopefully he will feel better later.

    Following you now on Instagram, I have an account there. Not used it very much recently.
    Been thinking awhile about posting these pics here on that @Alien Aspie

    Wonderful picture.

    Thought I'd share mine.

    Took friends puppy for walk. Lucky enough to live a driveable distance from Richmond park.

    In 10 days away the little fella has slimmed and elongated a little.

    He's also got more confident.
    Yesterday's highlights had him.

    * Off lead, running around in circles like a loon
    * Coming to heel
    * Climbing up and down the banks of a river with genuine delight at his bravery
    * Watching a troop of horse riders go by, unsure to chase or runaway..so chose to st down & watch

    And on a day blessed by some great pics and videos...this happened.

    IMG_20200919_143347~01.jpg

    Normally we'd be too far away to see this properly, but they kind of crept up on us, so we sat quietly just admiring the beauty of the moment...glorious day

    Enjoy the peace & quiet.
    So you back here soon :)
