The three things that I love about Autumn are:
First: The colours of Autumn. Aren’t they amazing?
Second: The fun in the colouful leaves.
I love walking and jumping through them.
Third: A peaceful warm light like my salt lamp.
Autumn evenings like that are great with a hot drink and a book.
Wishing you a super Autumn Evening!

Liz, I know who has beautiful Autumn view from her house.

All his books are available on Amazon, and such fun, even for non dog owners.
I heard from Steffi that WordPress is doing this special walk wwwp5k .
A 5k run/walk is approximately 3.1 miles long. That is roughly equal to:
Twelve laps around a track.
Approximately 6,000-7,500 steps.
Approximately 50-60 minutes of brisk walking.
It was any time between Monday, September 19th to Sunday, September 25th, lace up your running/walking/hiking/hopping shoes and join us for the 5k blogged about around the world!
I participated and here is my post
I made it a mindful walk on my own.
My impressions from my walk:
a beautiful church
a cat on the windowsill
lovely coloured flowery bushes
more sweet flowers
and now for the count:
That was a lovely mindful walk,
Why not try a mindful walk yourself,
being fully present,
notice the beauty around you,
enjoy every step you do,
… and you don’t even notice how far you go!
I have been sent a 1000 piece puzzle by Debra to enjoy and to review.
As I love puzzling, I was very happy.
It is a brilliant way to relax,
to practice patience and
look at pictures in real detail.
This time it was ” The Brighton Belle” by Ravensburger.
A Premium Puzzle with Soft Click Technology.
On opening the 1000 pieces were neatly packed in a bag. It included a leaflet showing the artists biography and additional picture for reference. As I can see from the included small catalogue that it is a new addition to the collection 2016.
The Drawing by Trevor Mitchell shows the 1st class service the Brighton Belle used to bring for 40 years. An excellent choice of the picture as it has many different colours and lines to be identified on each puzzle piece.
There is more information about “that the magic of fine rail dining in the 1930s, complete with attentive white jacketed Pullman stewards and those sumptuous surroundings” It will be recreated and the Brighton Belle will be in service again towards the end of 2016. If you like to read more please go to the Brighton Belle website. Rather interesting!
The 1000 pieces are great card quality which you can be sorted easily without the danger of breaking them or the fear of the actual picture coming off.
Through the many different objects and people on the picture one can sort really well into colours and also shapes depending how you as puzzler prefer it. I prefer sorting in shapes first then colours.
The great thing with a Ravensburger, once you find a piece and it fits – it really fits, it really ‘clicks ‘in. It does have the soft click technology- not just a word- you can really feel it. You do not have to doubt if it is the right place as each piece is individually shaped. This is a big bonus and gives us puzzlers extra help especially for not such established puzzlers. The shapes are distinctive and sometimes you don’t even need to look at the picture so much. While doing piece by piece you feel and see the excellent quality.
See my progress….
My favourite moment is when I put the last piece in, I feel a sense of achievement and I can see the picture in full big glory.
I very much enjoyed doing this puzzle, it didn’t take long and even my children stopped by to put the odd piece in the right place. I can recommend this puzzle to all puzzlers out there and it would be a good start for someone who has never done 1000 pieces.
