Hello lovely people, Here we are again on Friday (Time flies!).
We're joining Annie once again with the smiles from our week.
What made me smile this week, no doubt are my postcards. Here is one from Germany. From Bavaria to be precise. It mentions a lot of great things about Bavaria.
The Bavarian wald brotzeit ( literally bread time) is a lovely lunch to go with great german beer:
The Oktoberfest is the famous beer fest. It's almost a rite of passage for young men in Europe to go at least once in their lives to the Oktoberfest.
And the Lederhosen are the traditional leather shorts that men wear:
(How's that for eye candy?)
And the Chiemsee Dirndl is the traditional dress for ladies.
The stamps are lovely. Again that Sesamestreet stamp. It always makes me smile.
The second card coincidentally also comes from Germany. It's just a sweet image of a little boy by the water. It makes me long for the beach...
What have I been up to this week? See for yourself...
We enter a photo every month at the photo club. The theme this month was 'Sea'. As we are in lockdown, it had to be a photo from our archives. This was mine. It was a lovely November day (18 Nov 2016) in a little hamlet called La Isleta del Moro on the Cabo de Gata coast. We were eating at a restaurant right by the 'beach' and this cat was lying by my chair, no doubt waiting for some scraps.
I found this unusual butterfly on my tomato plants. I nearly didn't see it! It has perfect camouflage colours.
I missed Tuesday's collage but I did go to the market, which was held for the first time since the lockdown.
All the stalls were cordoned off.
And one could only enter from one end of the street, where the 'Proteccion Civil' checked if you had masks and gloves and provided hand sanitiser.
It was really weird. There was only a fraction of the stalls we normally get and of course only food stalls were allowed.
Here is a photo by a friend from the photoclub. It is our village of Caniles seen from a distance.
That was my week.
As usual I will post some funnies at the end.
Have a lovely weekend,
The statue of Abraham Lincoln with a mask:
My friend Fifi, whom I used to work with, found this urban art somewhere in Bristol . The 'pearl' is an alarm box, lol.
