A Shopping Trip....and a little bit more.

 This is Lucy my Lurcher 

Shopping,  that's as interesting as it get's. 

Well mum where have you been.
Food shopping to be exact just an ordinary Monday , at my local Supermarket.  After trailing round for an hour , mission accomplished. Packed it away in the boot of my car .
Thought I would pop back in store for a take away Costa Coffee , really needed Cuppa.

There she was beautiful Bubbles as I found out later what her name was.  Yes it was a  Greyhound , my weakness  as some of you may know. A weary looking guy in a wheel chair wanted quite frankly a dog sitter , while he was doing his food shop. I do it for you I promptly volunteered , I couldn't resist those big brown eye's looking up at me.  
I stood I sat and patted her , took for a short toilet run. Drank my lovely coffee feeling a little better after that much needed drink. Waiting and I can tell you the people you meet in that one hour is quite amazing.  Yes an Hour you heard right...but I didn't mind really. Two friends of mine I hadn't seen for almost three years , a good looking guy took a shine to her and we chatted for 20 mins at least.

Finally he showed up and offered me a coffee , but I politely refused thanking him. As I had more errands to run. Bye Bubbles it was fun and a pleasure .   You may say that was my good deed for the day, But in fact it made my day, but hey that's just me I suppose.

Here are some Pictures from my Garden  through August  to Oct  this year .
It has been a great time for the Roses , Red Hot Pokers and the Orchard  also, giving a few varieties of Apples. The Ducks on my Lake  are always a pleasure to observe through the Summer months.
 That is a Christmas Cacti   which is doing just fine. It brings a bit of color in October , it is now fully bloomed.  

Have a Good week and enjoy each day as it comes.


  1. You live in a very lovely area. Oddly enough I baby sat a Chihuahua last night. Koko goes off the deep end when I show up. He runs up and down the stairs, turns around so he can be surprised again. He soon settles down, then he just sits next to me on the sofa.
    Now I want coffee!

  2. What beautiful flowers you have blooming! I too, like you, cannot resist a pup's eyes... I just love dogs they are the best. Good for you for doing an act of kindness!

  3. It is so nice to see your post! Your photos are absolutely gorgeous!
