Hello lovely ladies (and the occasional man),
Here I am again with my postcards and some natter about my life.
Of course today is Friday and I think back on all things positive and what made me smile this past week.
A full mailbox always makes me smile. I received several postcards this week.
The first postcard I thought was in very poor taste. I think it was meant to be funny, but I don't have that sort of sense of humor. Anyway it comes from the USA and they might have a different sense of humor than we Europeans.
The stamps are absolutely fab! Look at them! There is Marvin Gaye in the middle and John Lennon next to him. But then on the left is Cordell Hull. He was an American politician who won the Nobel Peace prize in 1945.
Cordell Hull was an American politician from Tennessee best known as the longest-serving U.S. Secretary of State, holding the position for 11 years in the administration of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt during most of World War II.The neighbourhood where my parents lived (and my mum still lives) has street names of Nobel Prize winners. For more than 40 years they lived in the Cordell Hull Plaats in Rotterdam.
My next card comes from Taiwan and has some typical Taiwanese food on it, luckily also written in English.
The stamps has a plant on it: Solanum Americanum, or American Nightshade
So, what have i been up`to this week? I made some dough, pulled it out as thin as possible and then raided the fridge for things to put on it.
Then I put it in the little oven we have in our stove/woodburner.
It came out perfect. And we enjoyed our home made pizza.
We do have enough almond shells for our stove stocked up and the weather will get warm soon, but we liked the quality we were able to get lately, so hubby decided to get another load while the quality is good and the price low. We'll put them away for next winter.
The almond shells were already bagged up and all we had to do was load up. Here you see my hubby (on the right) and the car on the weigh bridge.
This week I also received a pocket letter from a lovely lady in California. The theme was Llamas and cacti.
The green bits are bits of washi tape to prevent everything from falling out. I should have removed them before taking the picture.
I love this paper succulent. Isn't it lovely?That is it from me today.
As usual there are a few funnies at the end and
I'll be linking up with Annie at A Stitch In Time and with Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday.
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend and a good week ahead.
