We have just returned from an autumn walk with the dogs, inland from where we live. There is a fantastic cycle track that runs beside the river and there were no cyclists so the dogs had loads of space to run. They have this strange idea that squirrels might be fair game and once they have sniffed out the scent they run in the opposite direction to the way the squirrel is going. The autumn trees are magnificent at the moment and I know how fortunate we are to be able to enjoy them here.
I really appreciate Fridays now and we try to take some time out together. I often feel that I leave one place of work to arrive at another. This weekend is particularly busy for The Curate as he is at a day conference all day tomorrow which involves an hour and half to get there - so that's Saturday written off. Then he has a baptism on Sunday (which he is looking forward to) followed by an informal evening service which takes a lot of preparation as it is a new initiative. So that's the weekend.
