Here I am a gain with a few little tings to share with you. As always on Monday night (I write this late Monday night) we are at our weekend home 40km away from where we live. Saturdays and Sundays are super busy as is Monday morning, so we escape Monday lunch time, (do the grocery shopping as it's on the way) and come here.
We enjoy a relaxing time. I managed to sit outside in the sun for an hour to read and now we are sitting by a log fire as it gets cold as soon as the sun disappears behind the mountains.
Guess what I found behind a stone in front of our house?
They are a cluster of crocusses!
I think I held my finger a bit close to the lens, but you get the idea. Isn't it amazing to see flowers blooming so late in the season!
This Postcrossing postcard today arrived Friday from Lithuania.
Yummy Italian cheeses! I lived in Italy many years and I know (and like) most of them.
These type of cards are published by Nouvelles Images and I have collected quite a few with subjects ranging from foods to antique cork screws.
The card was sent by Vilune who tells me she lives in a small town and is a dentist. She has used a nice stamp too:
From what I can glean from Wikipedia (in Lithuanian and badly translated) he was a philantropic duke who lived from 1765-1833. He is mainly known as a composer and has a modern day music festival named after him.
We found a bottle of cider at the back of the fridge and have decided to open it as the fire has made us hot and we could do with a cool drink.
And we had a light supper (On Tuesdays we always eat at a restaurant and 'pig out', so we have a modest supper on Monday. (But not so modest that we cannot have cider!)
See the cat sitting in the window sill on the outside?
I think I'll leave it at that. I am reading a good book, well, not high literature, but a so-called 'cozy mystery' that I got really cheap for my Kindle (e-book). I read number one in the series and got hooked. They are called Rose Gardner Mysteries by Denise Grover Swank. I've just finished this one:
It is the first in the series. It is fast moving, believable and witty. A light read. (I've just finished reading a book about Winston Churchill by Boris Johnson and wanted a change).
Before I go off to read my book, I want to tell you that I'm going to link up with Elizabeth and Bleubeard for T for Tuesday. See you at the tea party!
