Wonderful Wednesday #25

Happy Wednesday everyone!

You know, I don’t actually think introductions are necessary for Wonderful Wednesday.

Let’s just crack on with all that good stuff.

The Few Birds That Have Made An Appearance Lately. 

Either I’m not looking hard enough or there is a distinct lack of birds around lately. It’s probably the later and this tidbit will just serve as a reminder to look harder to share more bird photos another time.

Still, you can always rely on the pigeons to make an appearance and if you’re lucky, you might even spot something special like this little Wren from a few weeks back.

Getting Our Chuckle On. 

We’re going through a bit of lull on the TV front at the moment as all the shows we like to watch are currently on their between season breaks.

So we aren’t without any dinnertime entertainment we like to pass these breaks with some tried and tested, will-more-likely-make-us-chuckle, options like Mock The Week and some quality YouTube videos of dudes playing computer games.

Plus, if I’m going to be vaguely up to date with the British news, I might as well do it through Picture Of The Week, and if I don’t care, then I have an episode of Car Mechanic Simulator to fall back on.

Sunsets Worth Mentioning. 

Or rather: worth photographing.

Pretty, no?

Getting Back In The Blog Game. 

I’m going to jinx myself by saying this, but could it be? Is it true? Do I have blogging mojo again? I think I do.

I really think I do.

I’m taking more photos, I’m being more active on social media, I’m even reading and commenting on other peoples’ blogs (maybe only once or twice a week, but at least it’s something), heck, I even have a notebook where I plan out ideas for blog posts and my rough schedule for the month ahead.

Blogs got mojo and I’m happy about it.

Woodland walks. 

What can I say, I’m a big fan of the peace and quiet. I’ve never one to turn down a walk in the woods (or anywhere else for that matter). I particularly love the woods in the summertime because they are always so full of bright green leaves and moss. Now that it’s Autumn, it’s time to take more woodland walks and enjoy the changing colours.

Tasty Morsels. 

Salt and Balsamic Vinegar Kettle Crisps. That accidentally vegan Aldi cereal. Mango Sorbet. Plenty of steamed veg and taters. Bulk cooking Bolognese. Alpro Soya Macchiato drink. Banana Smoothies. Speculoos Spread. Crispy Tofu.

It’s all yum.


Because pretty things. That’s why.

Dog Versus Box. 

This is what we get up to when it’s either far too hot or pouring with rain outside. We can now get up and sit ourselves on much higher and narrower objects, including the waste paper basket in the background on the second photo.

Other things we like to do when the weather is rubbish include: learning to pivot around the box in both directions and trying to learn how to cover our eyes with a paw. If they fail, it’s trying to steal the socks off my feet whilst laying under my desk or fetch in the garage.

Cross Stitch Away. 

I decided to pick up a new hobby, curtesy of the patient teaching skills of the MIL, cross stitching. Along with my new ID books I picked up whilst on my life-respite back in the UK, I decided it was time to engage my brain in a new hands-on activity. We opted for cross stitch, since it doesn’t actually require me to come up with the creativity, I just have to follow a pattern and the creativity will make itself. Plus, it’s another thing I can do whilst listening to my audiobook, and I’m always fine with more audiobook time.

To get me started, the MIL bought me a kit as an early birthday gift and I made a good start on it whilst in the UK and have been plodding through it back on Planet Belgium ever since. Occasionally, Dog-Face joins in, but she isn’t all that helpful. Unless I want my thread licking or my aida nibbling on.

Leave me all things wonderful from your life in the comments!
