A Postcard a Day - Tuesday 24 Nov 2014 - T for anniversary

Hello lovely people! How are you all?

I'm linking up with Elizabeth at T for Tuesday where anything drink related is being posted.

My drink related postcard is here:
It came from Russia, sent to me by Larissa Polyanskaya. The artist is Anna Silivonchik and the picture is called: "The clock-work birdie". I like Anna's work. As I buy a lot of my postcards in Russia (on the internet from Russian sites) I have quite a few by this artist. 
Of course the 'drink-link' is the bottle of Absinthe. Absinthe is a highly alcoholic spirit, usually green. It tastes of aniseed. Originally it comes from Switzerland. It is often sweetened with a sugar cube and diluted with a bit of water after which it goes cloudy. That's all I know about it. I don't really drink it.

It was our anniversary yesterday. My DH and I have been married for 23 wonderful years! It was love at first sight and we love each other just as much as in those first giddy days.
We went to a local eatery, just a few minutes walk from where we live. As usual we had a drink of wine with a (free) tapa, which is a little snack. In this case the tapa was a small portion of paella, a rice dish.

Then we treated ourselves to steak and chips, (a very expensive dish in these parts).
We had a different steak each. This was mine:
And of course we got a nice little salad with that too.
And for desert.... tiramisu, my favorite!
I really enjoyed myself, although the steak was a little too rare for my DH.
That's all from me today. Have a lovely T-day all of you.
We will certainly have a lovely day as we are driving to the vet later on today (a two and a half hour journey) to have two of the street cats neutered. We caught them last night ( in big cage traps) and fed them. This morning they are 'nil-by-mouth' so to speak. They are both females and that requires a little operation. The vet appointment is at half past 5 in the afternoon, so we won't be home until very late today, so please excuse me if I don't comment immediately.



  1. Happy Anniversary! Love the Russian postcard, so pretty. Your food looks more than fantastic, you have inspired me to eat something now! Good luck with the OP on the cats, good that you care for them. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Happy Anniversary to you both! What a wonderful celebration you had. The salad looked especially delicious and something I might enjoy in the summer.

    The clockwork birdie is just adorable. I've never tried Absinthe, but Anisiette and Sambuca are both similiar--I've been told, LOL!

  3. I adore this postcard with that bright yellow birdie! A very happy anniversary to you both! What a lovely way to honor your special day. The food looks so good-the salad especially to me. Good luck with your vet trip. What a kind and caring thing for you to do. Happy T day!

  4. Happy belated anniversary. Looks like you had a wonderful time. Believe me, steaks are expensive here, too, even though I live in beef country. And even though I'm a vegetarian, your steaks look wonderful. And I have to admit, that's a REAL salad, not the bland head lettuce and bits of carrots we Americans get with our meals.

    Your postcard is wonderful. I really adore that bird.

    Hope the cats are happy once they come out of the anesthetic. So good of you to do this. We need more caring people like you who neuter these animals that no one wants.

    You asked about Thanksgiving. It's ALWAYS on the last Thursday of November, which means the dates are variable, but the day isn't.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely postcard, your wonderful anniversary dinner, and your caring for the cats with us for T this Tuesday. Hope you had a lovely anniversary, as it appears you did.

  5. Happy Anniversary! Your steaks look so tasty; now I'm hungry for steak ;) Happy T Tuesday and hopes that the vet trip goes well.
