It is a card from the Philipines. It was not sent by one of my Postcrossing friends but by Patsy, a Christian blogger from the Philippines. She participates in WOYWW so some of you might know of her. Their family have a publishing business called Papemelroti and Patsy's brother has designed this card (and others that I have seen). A few of the goodies in the picture we have in Spain too like turón and ensaymada (cheese bread from Mallorca) and Polvoron, (crumbly shortbreads).
Top right features Halo-halo, a shaved ice drink. I have never Heard of that but it qualifies me for the T-party. The name made me giggle, as there used to be a tv series called 'allo 'allo,
a funny take on the french resistance during WW2. The Brits amongst you will remember that.
I really wanted to show you the grape juice that we made. A neighbour had given us a tub full of grapes.
I have a juicer and I wanted to show you our glass of grapejuice. But when we had juiced it we drank it without taking any photos (story of my life!)
Our games evening went well last week. We played mainly Rummicub and we had a go at Ligretto, which was a laugh.
The next day my friend and I played a game that she had brought with her: Set. It has cards with shapes. 12 are layed on the table and you have to make a 'set'.
A set can be three of the same color, or same shape or same infilling. But also can be three different cards: different shapes, different colours and different infulling. It's a quiet thinking game. I really liked it once I got the hang of it.
My friend has since left and I spent the week slowly getting the room back to normal and washing all the bedding and towels. The room they slept in is actually my craft room, so hopefully I will get some crafting done next week. Watch this space.
Here is something funny I came acrfoss on the internet the other day:
Of course I'm not telling you to go away. And in the same breath I am saying I'm stopping here and get this ready to post.
Have a good week,
