It seems summer has arrived here in Spain. Boy, it's been so sunny and hot these last few days. That's not fair I hear you say...
Lets look at my card for today. It is a card I am sending from here. I've been writing it tonight and it is going to the USA. It's one of those typical houses in the old part of town and it has a beautiful wooden balcony.
Baza is our nearest town. We were there yesterday and I shot this picture:
It's not the same house, but the same idea.
So what has happened this week.... Well, Friday we were still on holiday and we visited a beautiful natural park on the coast.
Completely undeveloped. It featured fossil dunes, which I was keen to see.
And this tall plant. Kate Perry might know what it is...
Isn't it beautiful.
Saturday is baking day usually, but I didn't bake anything that Saturday. In the afternoon I went to Intercambio, to practice my Spanish. It was really cold in the upper room where we meet, so someone suggested we go to a nearby bar! Which we did.
Sunday is taken up with church and Bible study. We had a dedication in our church. (Children get baptized when they can decide for themselves, so a new born gets 'dedicated'.)
Everyone has their eyes closed because I think they just started to pray as I took the picture.
On Monday we went into town as I needed some embroidery thread. There is only one milleners in town and this is it:
They also sell yarn and fabric:
I tried to take pictures of the window display which had the famous Spanish mantilla combs with lace displayed.But there was too much reflection. The combs look like this (internet photo):
It is worn in the Easter week (Semana Santa) with a lace veil (another internet photo):
On Wednesday we went to the market. Hubby bought a couple of belts:
We had lots of little things to do that morning, the most important one was renewing hybby's driving license. It is only valid for 5 years. We didn't know that and inadvertedly let his heavy vehicle license expire. (In the UK you have your driving license for life). Bummer. Hopefully he won't need to drive anything bigger than our campervan.
After doing all our errands, we sat down to have a coffee and a bun. The weather is unseasonally hot, but that's nice, I'm not complaining.
I'm still wearing my gym shirt as we left straight from the gym.
I think I'll leave it at that. I'm off to visit Annie at A Stitch in Time and Virginia at Rocking your Week Friday.
