Hello lovely ladies, How lovely to see you here again. It is Friday and time to join Anny with the smiles of our week.
I always start with some postcards I have received this week. The first one comes from Germany. This cheeky lady made me smile.I am a bit baffled by the written words. I read: 'Lesen bildet' which means: reading educates. But it says 'pildet' with a P. I don't know that word. Any German speakers who can help me out?
The stamps are pretty and floral.
My second card comes from Hongkong. It features the market place at night. A great photo.
The stamps show two different children's stories: The tortoise and the hair and The little engine that could.
So, what have I been up to this week? Well, Friday evening we went out with our friends and we had pizza.
You can guess the name of the pizzeria was La Gondola.
On Saturday we usually go to Intercambio, a group of Spanish and English speaking people that want to improve their language skills. So we socialize and help each other/correct each other and practice pronunciation. One of our members had a birthday that day and someone had made a lovely cake:
As the room we were in was unheated and it was cold, we decided to continue at the bar.
We had a drink and in our province you get a free tapa with your drink. Our tapa was the Spanish equivalent of a bacon butty, only in this case there was Serrano ham in stead of bacon.
Sunday the weather deteriorated.
And hubby decided to bring his aloe vera plants inside as there was snow and gale force winds forecast. We put them on the stairs.
Monday was still cold. I go to the gym at 9 in the morning and it was freezing! Here you see us ladies doing our stretches with jackets and scarves on!
Luckily on Tuesday the sun shone and hubby and I went to the local market. We went early to make sure our favorite cheese wasn't sold out. And we also bought nuts and fresh dates. Here I am paying for my purchase:
Then we went to a local bar to have a Spanish breakfast: tomatoes on toast!
We folded tiny gift boxes out of old Christmas cards or pretty card stock.Our local photo club is hosting a week long exhibition. We take it in turns to 'man' the venue. Last night it was my turn. My companion had brought some chocolates. (No we did not eat the whole box!)
That's it from me. I will post a few funnies at the end like I always do.
Have a great weekend and...
