I'm back! We've been away for a week. My husband works very hard and he is no longer a young man so we do need to go away regularly as he never stops! We took our campervan to a mountain campsite with lots of trees (for shade as it is very hot here).
But what happened on the last day? It rained! It doesn't rain here at all in the summer, so it was a memorable occasion. So unusual that I took a few photos. Here you can see the rain pouring down the awning (by the pole):
Hubby had to clean all the pine needles off the awning before rolling it up. Luckily all this happened the evening before we were due to go home.
I know this blog is about happy things and smiles. Well, here a bit of rain is a happy occasion as the land needs it so much.
I just looked at my previous (Friday) blog and of course you were all quite right that my 'mystery' object was a feather duster.
It works a treat! Very posh. I had never seen one like that. This is what I am used to:
So there, I now know why they call it 'feather' dusters....
I have been smiling a lot this week. My son from Italy took his wife and baby to see my 92 old mother in Holland. They sent me photos every day. What a momentous occasion!
How about a postcard? I have so many to choose from as I have received loads.
This one came from Holland. It is a poster that used to hang in school class rooms (a little bit before my time) probably by the famous illustrator called Jetses.
This is the letterboard that Dutch children used to learn to read from. A lot of the subjects are found in the larger poster. My mum was taught with this method.
Now for a final 'funny':
Caption left reads: Finally it's Friday! On the right: I have to work Saturday!
I'm off now to link up with Annie at Friday Smiles and with Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday. I hope you'll join us there.
Have a great week with many smiles,
