Yup, I KNOW the feeling!
Paper airplanes? Really?
I think I know these guys!
Above is the right hand ambulatory (aisle)...leading to the south chapel. The south chapel is usually the prettiest since the sun really perks it up. The north chapels in all these churches often hold the oldest artwork since there is no sun to fade it. They often stuck bell towers over the north chapels since they tended to be cold and uncomfortable anyways. This auld kirk is nae exception.
From the outside, you can clearly see the old architecture. Chances are most of what you are looking at has been fixed or replaced sometime in the last fifteen hundred years, but the lines are just as they were laid down when this church was built...in 500 AD. Of real interest to me is the roof...doesn't it look like the roof of a greek temple? It should. It is.
And this is a closeup of the old east wall. The sun has faded the old paintings almost to invisibility, but hey, they are nearly a thousand years old, so they can be forgiven for being a little faded!
Winter chores. Replacing oven elements. Tavi is learning how to do that. This was trickier than most stove elements because it had screws! Oh well, usually happens this time of year because everybody is cooking up harvest feasts, and the old elements are getting the first workouts since the weather turned warm back in the Spring.
Lest there be any doubt, winter has arrived. Not like last year when we didn't get snow until well into January! This has the depressing look of snow which is here to stay. Though that is unlikely....I often go motorcycling in December.
