088/365…. Easter Candy

When just little fellas, my boys really never got into the Easter thing. They just weren’t into finding eggs and baskets and fluffy bunnies weren’t exactly their cup of tea. But they did enjoy the jelly beans. So each year, I fill up the candy dish with colorful Easter candy and it lasts through the season. (the chocolate eggs are mine. 😀 )

Here’s me on top of the trig point, celebrating our triumph (it’s not very high, so there wasn’t a great deal of effort involved in getting there, but it was nice to be out and about).

83/365: And now for something completely different!

Stuck for inspiration this week, I was suddenly inspired by the sight of some local architecture this morning on my way into town.  Sussex is famous for its use of flint in walls and below are two examples:  The first is a snapped flint wall, built of stones that have been broken in half to exposed an inner face, usually of a circular or oval shape.

Missing Ireland? Make your own soda bread!
