I thought I would show you some more cuteness. Otherwise known as baby animals. These were a type of sheep that I had never seen before. They had twisting horns and long wool (the lambs had curls) and you could see them start already on the lambs' heads as well. But those sheep were very very skittish. Definitely not people sheep.
I hope you enjoyed the cuteness...

I find that when I'm walking, I can't keep a thought in my head for very long. It's not meditation as such, but it does come quite close. Lately however...
... I find that things are getting to me again. Like they did back when I lived in Northern Ireland. Not as bad mind and not for the same reasons, but the grrr feelings are returning.
Don't get me wrong: I know a lot of people have the same or similar problems. But that doesn't make it a lesser issue. Not for them, not for me.
I walk. It clears my head.

Something I do like to photograph are birds of prey. Especially in flight. So, when I saw this one, I started snapping. And I realised, it wasn't just in flight, it was also in fight!

You put the compost on a saucer, add some water and watch it grow. You then fill the tubs with the earth, put the seeds in and cover with the remaining earth. Put in the sun and wait for it to grow. According to the notes that come with, that first bit should take about 2 weeks. Then when the plants are about 4 cm (1.5 inch) high, you have to move them to a bigger pot where they can grow some more.
So far I have planted Oxheart Cabbage and Dill, Radishes and Buckwheat, Swiss Chard and Chamomile and Lacinato Kale and Crimson Clover. As long as they will produce something edible (most, not all), I will be quite happy. I will keep you posted on how they are all doing.

That 39% means that in under one third of the period (which would be 4 months), I have done over one third of the distance. I am going great! In fact, each month my distance went up, last month I nearly did 100 km.
There is a slight note to this. The total distance last year was calculated using all kilometers I did, whether it was proper walk or not. The total distance this year is calculated using only proper walks. Which means that any steps taken during work are not counted. Any steps taken while going to the shops (unless part of a walk) are not counted. And I still have more km than I did last year.
