Hello peeps, it's Friday again! How that week flies!
Here I am again with a postcards, funnies and something about my life here in Spain.
The card I received yesterday is beautiful. It is an alpine meadow on the slopes of the Rosa Khutor mountain in Russia. It was sent by Anastasia in Sochi.
She writes: "There are alpine meadows on the slopes of the Caucasian Mountains. Here is the Caucasian Biosphere Reserve, and near there are ski slopes and Winter resort Rosa Khutor. Caucasian mountains (are) the youngest mountains in the world, so sometimes there are small earthquakes in Sochi. Because they move."
The stamps are spectacular:
I haven't been able to look them up yet as I have only just received the card.
Those stamps certainly made me smile. What else has made me smile this week? Hubby has been doing the 'rejas', the railings that go in front of the windows.
Here he is putting rust cure stuff on them and then he spray painted them.
This is what it looks like in situ:
When I took the picture, only one window was done, and we also will have a little gate in the porch to prevent dogs from peeing on our door.
Here is the small one close up:
When I instructed the chap to make them, he asked me to draw what I wanted, so the design is my choice. On a walk through the village it is noticeable that every house has different rejas. Interesting.
The beam above the window still needs to be stained .
One of the joys of life, for me, is reading a good book. I have collected a few t-shirts and 'funnies' about reading books.
I hope you have all had a good week. I'm going to join Annie at A Stitch In Time. Please join us and tell us what made you smile this week.
Then while you're at it, move on to Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday.
Have a great weekend and a good week ahead with lots of smiles.
