A Touch Of Colour

Although not as spectacular as the autumn foliage that can be seen elsewhere, I think that the colours on the hillside viewed from our window are quite pretty, especially on this grey old morning.


We are due to exchange contracts on the new house sometime today.  I am on tenterhooks.   Until then I can peek across to the bell tower in eager anticipation...

  1. How many people can describe their home as having a 'bell tower'?

  2. Those are lovely views of your Autumn colors! Will you be able to climb up into your bell tower? Imagine the views from there! Good luck with the paperwork exchange!

    1. Sadly no Ellen. The only way up there is to use a ladder on the outside. Not something I see myself doing!

  3. I am so excited for you! I can hardly wait to see. Does your bell tower have bells? Are you going to ring in the new year?

    1. There is one bell. We understand it is the original one from the 1851 Chapel but it may not be safe to try ringing it. It weighs half a ton and has (hopefully) been secured in place up there.

  14. As The Church House was once God's holy dwelling place, He will have personally approved the purchase after considering your trespasses. Excellent news JayCee!
