Shall I show you my postcard first? Here's a card that arrived yesterday from my friend in Italy. It is a cute card by Anne Geddes and she knows I like those:
Anne Geddes is famous for her baby photography. She is Australian but lives currently in New York (according to Wikipedia). Isn't this a cute pupa!
I hope it made you smile, because today is Friday Smiles. (Hosted by Annie).
I have just finished a book called River Of Time: Waterfall. The first of three books that I bought (in e-book form) recently. I only 'buy' books that are free or max 99 pence. I got this one from Bookhub for 1.98 pounds sterling for the three.
It's officially a teen and young adult book (which I don't mind), in a similar vein as The Hunger Games. In this case Gabriella and her sister Lia spend a bored summer in Italy on their mother's archeological dig, when they trespass in an Etruscan grave and get time travelled back to Medieval times. Gabi meets handsome prince who helps her look for her sister from whom she had gotten separated somehow. Lots of swashbuckling adventures with a bit of romance. A good yarn. I am looking forward to the next one.
What else has been happening this week? Well today is Epiphany or in Spanish: Los Reyes (the kings). This is when Spanish children get their presents and they have all been looking forward to this day. Yesterday afternoon the three kings made their entrance with a great parade. I didn't go yesterday to watch, so I have some photos of previous local parades.
The children on the floats throw sweets and candies into the crowds.
Here is a Three King joke:
And to finish off, a funny of a different kind:
I hope you are not having a bad day. In fact I wish you a great day, and a fantastic weekend to follow.
