Here we are again, showing each other the smiles and silver linings of this week.
I received a couple of great pòstcards this week. In fact this one arrived yesterday:
Does that ring a bell for some of you?
This card was sent to me from the US by a 76 yr old lady who lives with her dog Ducky.
The second card is from Holland:
As I have asked for cards with traditional costume, I got sent this. It looks like an old fashioned poster. I don't know. The card does not mention it.
This week has been a fairly good week. I have done a lot of baking and cooking. We had some over-ripe pears on the fruit bowl. So I looked on the internet for a pear cake récipe. I found an Italian récipe. It uses flour as well as corn starch, which is new to me. The cake turned out very well.
I promised to show you some photos of our new meeting place. Our fellowship is going to meet in a bar! I'm not joking. We have rented an unused bar for our meetings.
It is 160 sq meters and has a kitchen as well as two toilets, airco and central heating.
Saturday we are going to paint it. The walls have Wall art on them which is not suitable for a church environment.
The kitchen is a mess and would not pass any food standard, but I spotted a bread oven.
We can have fun with that. I'm thinking pizza parties with the youngsters. Lets make our own pizzas, larking around with the dough, choosing the topping, cooking them in the oven and then the eating.
This place has a lot of potential, but for the time being we are just going to hold our meetings there.
I did some scrapbooking yesterday and made a lay out. I used to join CSI (Color, stories and inspiration) and I think I'll play along with them again. The prompt for this month has bright colours.
I made a page with the photo of our last day at the gym before the summer break. That was laugh, connect and not forget.
The colorsceme was spot-on:
I had a great time getting all the bits and pieces together.
That's it from me today. I'm going to link up with Annie at A Stitch in Time and with Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Now for some funnies:
