Keeping The Little Church In The Park

This afternoon I posted

Having read more of ‘Bleak House’ I scanned the next four of Charles Keeping’s exemplary illustrations.

‘It was a thing to look at, the three children close together’

‘Jo comes out of Tom-all-Alone’s’

‘How tranquil and happy she looked’

‘The little church in the park’

This evening we dined on Jackie’s tasty liver and bacon casserole; creamy mashed potatoes; crunchy carrots; and tender runner beans, with which the Culinary Queen drank Hoegaarden and I drank Ceo Mencia Bierzo 2019


  1. Ah, I assume from the beverages consumed that the Culinary Queen is feeling a little more like herself 🙂

  2. Keepings illustration of the three children close together captured my attention this morning, as I sit here sadly thinking about the refugee children of the Ukraine, fleeing their warm homes, cuddly toys, and abandoned pets

  3. I’m glad you chose the little church in the park as your header. That was my favorite, too! You had a rather relaxed day. Did the weather keep you inside? Like Ivor, I was drawn to the three children who reminded me, too, of the Ukrainian children having to leave their homes. Such a travesty!
