Spring is in the air! Along with sun, snow sleet and hail there was rain, we seem to have all the seasons all together in one day yesterday. The hailstorm was quite the spectacle bouncing off the road and crashing against the windows but within seconds the sun was once again shining down. The weather conditions change so quickly and dramatically here. Even the cloud formations are beautiful and change so quickly. It is an everchanging environment filled with beauty if you open your eyes.
The first lamb was born during the night to our neighbour, another wonderous sight and miracle.
I will get a better photo later when I walk down to feed the chickens. In other good news there has been an announcement made that with effect from 1800hrs yesterday the restrictions on the Western Isles will change and we will be moved to tier three regulations. This means that cafes/restaurants, hairdressers/barbers, shops can now reopen. I will be making appointments for both Gerard's and I hair, we are in dire need of a good cut. It will be nice to treat ourselves to a good coffee when we go to town. Little steps but the light at the end of the tunnel is beginning to emerge.
A few Easter/Spring decorations have begun to appear which has also lifted the spirits. Let me give you a glimpse of a few additions to our little cottage.
I do need to plan the menu for over Easter so that I can ensure we have all the ingredients. The family usually gather at Easter as we also celebrate my birthday and our youngest daughters birthday. That is not going to happen but I am sure we will make some plans to have a virtual party or cake event using technology for which I am so thankful.
Do you decorate for Easter?
Hope all is well with you. Take care and stay safe.
See you soon.
