I have a nice postcard to show you that arrived two days ago from Russia.
It is called 'Eastern Beauty' by Delapoer Downing (1853-1926). I can't find much info on the artist other than that he/she was British, possibly Irish.
The stamps are beautiful, as you can see:
The stamp on the right represents the 200th Anniversary of the Establishment of the sign of the Military Order of St George the Triumphant. The one on the left is actually about Postcrossing. This is what I do with postcards. (Have a look at www.postcrossing.com)
Last week Number 1 daughter came to visit, on her own without the family. She had lots of quality time with us.
One of the places we visited with her was Castril, where there is a river and a walkway above it, through a small 'canyon'.
Because of all the rain we have had, the river was the highest and the fullest I have ever seen it. The noise of the roaring waterfall was deafening!
At the end of the wooden walkway was a wobbly bridge.
Daughter was determined to get close to the river and climbed down these rocks. (to my great dismay. I was glad when she had safely climbed back.)
As today is T for Tuesday, I am going to link up with Elizabeth and Bluebeard at Altered Book Lover, to show a drink. Well, here it is on the table, a bottle of water. (There is also a bottle of iced tea on the left):
We went on a picnic to the reservoir on Sunday, as it was the only nice day of the week. The lake really is this turquoise colour.
I had made this savoury 'cake' with ham and cheese in it.
Everybody had brought something nice.
The typical Spanish dish is of course the Spanish tortilla (tortilla de patatas pronounced tor-tee-ya day pah-tah-tas). One of my friends made the one below.
That is it from me today. I wih you all a very happy T-Day.
