Hello smiley ladies,
I'm sorry I have been AWOL the last two Fridays. I have been ill and I suppose I didn't have much to smile about. I'm better now, taking it easy. Forcing myself to take it easy, that is easier said than done.
The glazier came yesterday to fit a last Little window in the new flat downstairs, and he also fitted a glass pane in the shower. We also asked him tomake a windbreak for the BBQ on the terrace. So when he had done that, hubby said he was going to take the windbreak down until the summer. I protested as i had already seen that it made a fantastic suntrap in Winter.
This is the first smile. There I am, sat in the sun, Reading a book. Hubby took the photo without me knowing through the window.
Yesterday also was hubby's birthday, so we had a lovely time opening cards and presents over a cup of coffee that morning.
Here he has just received a bag to put his shaving gear in. A present from some of his grandchildren. Looking Sharp it says. He didn't feel he looked that Sharp as he is in his work overalls.
We've had a bit of snow too, but just in the mountains. Here it fell as snow. But I always like the look of the hills with White on them.
Here you can see the snow. It's a badly focussed photo. Sorry.
Now for some postcards:
A famous face from the 1960s. Yes, it's Jacqueline and Caroline Kennedy photographed at Hyannis Port (Mass) in 1960.
The stamps are also very nice:
As you can see, the card is date-stamped 28 Nov, and I only got it this week. The stamp on the right is about the painter Andrew Wyeth. Do look him up as you will be pleasantly surprised. I like his work.
This card is from Germany:
The lady that sent it is called Ute and lives in a place called Velzen. This is a picture of their railway station building, which has been re-designed by an Austrian artist called Hundertwasser. It's quite unusual isn't it.
Here are the stamps:
A lovely sunset and a beautiful flower.
Now for a few funnies before I go:
The caption reads: I will start studying at 11:00.
The caption on thislast one is: 'Mature? That's what fruit does.'
That is it from me this Friday. Have you some smiles to share. Please join me at Annie's A Stitch In Time.
