Hello lovely ladies,
Here we are again on Tuesday morning. Today we join the T-Party at Elisabeth and Bleubeard's!
Please join us with a blogpost with a beverage in it.
First of all let me show you some postcards I received this week. This black and white photo comes from the US. It is a photo from 1905."In this 1905 photo. two guests relax in rocking chairs as they take in the view from the east porch and main entrance to El Tovar. (Grand Canyon National Park Museum Collection)."
On Wikipedia I found another photo of what it looked like in those days:
And it still exists, and here is a more recent photo:
The second card comes from Canada. It shows a geological site called Joggins Fossil Cliffs, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Joggins Fossil Cliffs, a 689 ha palaeontological site along the coast of Nova Scotia (eastern Canada), have been described as the “coal age Galápagos” due to their wealth of fossils from the Carboniferous period (354 to 290 million years ago).
And amazingly, the stamp had the same image!
Sunday after church we went to a local bar to have our customary coffee and Baileys. (My qualifier for the T-Party).
They had these lovely little olive oil bottles on the bar.
I really liked those and I asked the owner's wife where I could buy one. She said that they weren't for sale.
She must have noticed my disappointment because 5 minutes later she presented me with this:
The weather has deteriorated big time. It even rained yesterday! It doesn't rain very often here so all the farmers are rejoicing.
Hubby has had to bring all his aloe veras inside. They are on the stairs now. And one of my neighbors gave me this large plant. It has large lily like flowers. I don't know what it is called. (does anyone know?)
Our local photoclub has organised an end-of-year exhibition. We were asked to take turns in manning it. It was my turn on Thursday. My companion had brought a box of chocolates!This is a corner of the exhibition, which shows the photo I took of my mum (on the left).
That is it for today. I'm going to link up now.
I will try to comment as soon as I can but I'm out all day on Tuesdays and I can't use my phone for comments. I have to wait until I get home and use my desk top. So be patient and I will get back to you at some stage.
Wishing you a happy T-Day,
PS. I just saw my little knife on Elisabeth's salad page:
