It is Friday again and time to look at the smiles during our week, and the silver lining around the not-so-smiley moments.
Here is a postcard that arrived this week that made me smile:
It came from Ukraine and was sent to me by Alena. The title of the card is: 'Singing old women'.
This is the stamp:
Olives plus an olive leaf. I suppose olive tres would grow in the southern part of the Ukraine and in the Crimea.
What have I done this week? Friday night we went out for a drink with our friends, but I forgot to bring my camera...
On Saturday I baked some cakes which I didn't immortalize. I'm not doing very well here.
I do have a photo of a super chicken cesar salad that I made last week. (Well, you can't see the chicken, but there was loads of it underneath the top layer.) It was very delicious:
Yesterday a neighbour brought us a bag of yellow fruit. Not sure if they were apricots or yellow plums. Anyway, I made a batch of jam with that. I got 8 jars out of that. Thank you Serafin!
We had a Little visitor recently. My hubby spotted him on the Wall next to the front door:
I think it is called a praying mantis. I should have put something next to him for size. He was a long as my thumb more or less, and didn't seem at all disturbed. He must know that our house is a house of prayer (as we pray a lot).
My cousin in Holland sent me the following two photos after she had gone for a walk in Scheveningen (The coastal town next to The Hague).
Aren't these fun! Remember?
I remember all of those. My mum & dad had a radio like the one bottom left. I wonder if they are still in working order? The TVs seem to be playing.
Lets have a few laughs:
And in the same vein:
A realistic typical teenager mannequin....
With that I'm going to leave you.
Have a fab weekend and a good week after that.
