Kitty paws and out and about


I just love this ladybird nestled in a thistle flower.  I like to take pictures of small beautiful things I see on my walks. There is so much beauty around us and it is easy to miss it when we rush around, or when we dismiss something as mundane when really it is a little piece of heaven.


Some flowers from our garden, I don't know what they are called but their petals are so delicate and beautiful.


The weather has been very rainy recently!  Our eldest went for a walk with her friend and got caught in an almighty downpour the other day. They hadn't got raincoats on and were totally soaked through.  When they got back her friend stood at the door of the summer house (sounds posh but it's basically a painted shed with windows lol) and B stood under an umbrella in the garden whilst her friend waited for her dad to pick her up.  I so wanted to bring them both in the house and offer warm drinks and towels but because of social distancing rules I couldn't.  It's so hard sometimes!


Boots giving me side-eye. Haha.  She's getting so old now.  She's 18 with hyperthyroidism and can be a bit grumpy.  She struggles to jump up or down from things and is so slow down the stairs now.  Oh and deaf, lol, she hears a little but I have to really raise my voice so she can hear me! Bless her.


Cats paws are just so cute!  Toe-beans B calls them.




A local child leaves theses painted rocks all over the place.  I love to find them on my walks.


We went up on the moors yesterday.  It was beautiful.  It's often very wild and windy up there, we aren't far from where Emily Bronte wrote Wuthering Heights with it's wild moors and wild characters.  But yesterday it was quite warm.


The sheep joined us for a stroll :)



L and dad walking together.  I love this photo.

Well that's it for today.

Have a lovely day.

Sarah 💚

  1. Hello Sarah! What a wonderful blog! I enjoyed reading (great descriptive words...toe beans!) And, your photos are fantastic. I too blog about my walks on Day Trippin' most times, but this pandemic is kinda holding me back a lot. And cats...I love cats! Enjoy the rest of your week & nice meeting you.

  2. Your delicate flower is, I think, a Carnesbill geranium. They are pretty but can be a bit invasive!

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! It is a bit of a spreader, but very pretty. I like a lot of ground cover because it keeps the weeds at bay! LOL

  4. All such lovely photos! I love your little Boots, I have a matching kitty. So fun to find the kindness project painted rocks. I've only ever found one but I've painted and placed many. Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day! :)

  5. Hello Sarah - thanks for stopping by and leaving a kind comment. I'm enjoying my visit here and your lovely photos of Nature's beauty and the landscapes/views of your area of England. Being from Devon I never actually spent a lot of time in the north, but I have traveled there for brief visits when returning home over the years.

    Your kitty Boots is so pretty. We had our Tiny (actually a huge Maine Coon) until she was 21 - miss her still but decided another cat could never take her place. With a lot of travel done - and hopefully more when we can move around again - it's hard to have pets.

    Take care and please share more of England's northern beauty when you can.
    Mary -

    1. I love Devon. Devon and Cornwall are our favourite places and where we would like to retire one day (if our ships comes in).

      Pets are very tying. Maine Coons are gorgeous cats I can understand why you couldn't replace her.

      Thanks, I love sharing photos of our local area.

  6. What a beautiful place you live in!!!!

    And lovely flowers... The painted rocks are sweet too. A smile, along the way...

    We just missed a downpour, the other day. So sorry for your daughter and her friend. Yes, this miserable Wuhan Virus Lock Down is very, very, very awful.

    But your photos are a delightful note, on which to end this comment.

  7. Boots is beautiful! And your nature photos, WOW! You must live in England. I have read so many books that talked about the Moors, how special to find a blogging friend who lives nearby them! We adore cats too, and are down to one now. He is a senior as well. The stone sea wall is awesome! I have had to slow down a lot in recent years. But the blessing is seeing so many small delights. People in a hurry just never notice the little treasures. Thanks for visiting me! We are Mennonites in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

    1. Hey Ginny, thank you, you are right the small things are little treasures to enjoy. The water on the photo is a reservoir up on the moors, but I agree it does look like the sea from that angle. And you are right, I am in northern England. :)

  8. Such beautiful photos of the moors! I so want to visit the UK one day - I'm not interested at all in tropical beach holidays! I have a black and white cat too and I love how his paw pads are a mix of pink and black. So cute.

    1. Thank you, there are so many lovely places to visit here. My favourite places are Cornwall and Devon (if you want seaside) and if you like countryside there are so many lovely choices - the Yorkshire Dales, Northumbria, the Highlands of Scotland, Derbyshire, the Lake District...I could go on! And Kitty paw pad are the cutest!

  9. I so enjoyed my visit to your blog. Your photos are gorgeous. The one of the moors is extraordinary. I too have a black and white kitty - his name is Scooter. The tiny frogs were amazing. Also wonderful sharing on how you study the scriptures. The Word of God never stops being remarkable. Hope you have a great weekend.
