Like most of you I was so sad to hear that dear Eliza Harms had passed away... I never knew her in person, but I felt like I knew her and was genuinely upset when I heard the news. I loved reading about her professional life doing outside broadcasts, and following the stories about Yoda. Not forgetting Flat Susan who has spent quite a long time visiting Eliza and has had many adventures there. My heart goes out to her daughter Myrene and especially to her dad as Eliza's brother died recently. It must be so devastating for her father to lose two children in a short time. Horrendous!
So, what's happening here in Spain... Well, it's hot hot hot! This thermometer is in the shade, under the vine. I don't know how much 40 degrees is in Fahrenheit, but believe me, it's hot!
We use my husband's scooter quite a bit in stead of the car (car airco not working), but on the scooter it's like travelling in front of a giant hairdryer! Hot wind blowing in your face that takes your breath away. (BTW I don't ride myself but ride pillion.)
I've never been so excited about my mail as yesterday! Look what arrived in the post! The most gorgeous envelope, sent by Bibi in Norway, with all sorts of post related stamps on it. Yes. they are the stamps I ordered. A set called 'Only dull people send dull envelopes' from www.rubberdance.com . I really love these!
I also ordered a cling cushion as the stamps are unmounted. It comes without instructions but I'll find out on Youtube how to do it. Quite a tedious job I gather....
Those of you who can't stand bugs:look away now!
I found this on the floor yesterday. It was very dead, but nonetheless very beautiful. I have no idea what it is/was..... (are you suitably horrified that I picked it up?)
The battery is there for size. It was too big for a fly and it doesn't look like a beetle. So I have no idea. Does anyone know?
That's it for today. Have a good week and CU all next Wednesday.
