Good Morning all! The picture above translates: Good Morning, remember you are special.
Let me start this Friday with my usual two postcards. The first one is from Japan, from a Chinese person who lives in Japan. I cannot figure out what we see on this card. It only says: 'Entrance'. Of what? I don't know.The stamps are pretty. With an ibis like bird on the right and a waterfall on the left.
And this was a sticker on the back of the card:
The stamp is lovely. It is a large water melon, which reminds me of summer.
Well, what did I do this week? Saturday evening we had some drinks in the park with friends, and there were two bands playing.
This is rather a bad photo with the reflection of the setting sun.
I must say the bands were really good.
Sunday was Palm Sunday and here in the village they take the large palm leaves out in the street.Monday I went to the gym, only to find that the gym was closed as it is Holy Week and most things stop for a week. There were a few other ladies from my group. so we decided we would go for a walk:
Almond trees everywhere.
Two of my friends.
You can see how dry it is. It has since started to rain (and the weather is still atrocious. I heard that in the UK it is warm and sunny. I'm really pleased about that)
Here are some grasses next to some broom, which will flower soon (yellow).
When I stood outside the sports hall I saw a poster of a different activity which I have never seen: Kin-Ball!
I googled it (as you do): Kin-Ball, is a team sport created in Quebec, Canada in 1986 by Mario Demers, a physical education professor, in which the main distinctive characteristics are the large size of the ball (1.22 meters in diameter) and that the matches are played among three teams at the same time instead of traditional one-vs-one like the most of the team games. The International Kin-Ball Federation counts 3.8 million participants, primarily from Canada, the U.S., Japan, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Denmark, the Czech Republic, and Malaysia, China. The newest country is the UK. Kin-Ball UK formed in 2018 .
I also found a photo on the village web-site of Kin-ball being played at our sports hall :
On Monday we went grocery shopping and then went to our weekend home and watched a DVD in the evening.
Tuesday we had a lie-in and had lunch at our favorite restaurant. There was a prayer meeting in the evening.
Wednesday we had invited our Danish friends over for lunch. She had grumbled about a lasagna she had eaten in a restaurant, that was not something to write home about. So I said she ought to taste MY lasagna. So Wednesday I made lasagna from scratch.
I'm not in the picture as i took the photo.
Then Thursday I spend in my craft room and I made another Pocket Letter. I won't show you today as this post is already extra long. I'll call it a day (or night as it is 1 a.m.) and I will link up with Annie at A Stitch In Time and with Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday.
As usual a few funnies at the end.
Have a lovely weekend and a happy Easter to anyone who celebrates it.
