Let me tell you that we are not superstitious and Friday the 13th holds no fears for us. So I am starting this day as optimistic as ever because it is a good day! (Remember the song?:'This is the day, this is the day, that the Lord has made, that the Lord has made' etc)
My week has been busy as my clubs have started. I go to the gym Mon-Wed-Fri at 9:00 (I am writing this late at night so I can post it before I go to the gym).
We first have warm-up, then stretching and then aerobic exercises. After which we go upstairs to do the 'machines' for 25 minutes, then back downstairs for some more stretching and cool-down.
I'm also busy cooking, more than usual as we have started our healthy eating regime. I'm cooking three meals a day and prepring snacks in between. It's sugar free, alcohol and coffee free, no wheat and sort of paleo. We do this every year and I feel so much better on it, we eat really nice meals, and don't go hungry. I'm organized as I have the meals planned, one week in a transparent folder together with all the recipes. I have four weeks prepared. After that we start again at week one. Of course it also makes me lose weight, which is great as I am six kilos overweight. The first week i lost a kilo, so I am happy.
Some of you know that I love jigsaws. This week I have started another one:
I apologise for the bad quality of the photos. My phone takes really bad photos. I don't know why this should be. Most phone cameras are decent. Not mine!
And of course I do a lot of baking. Usually on a Saturday, but this week I also made a cake on Thursday evening. This is Persimmon Bread, or caki cake as we call it. It is made with caki fruit. As the cakis were ripe I had to make the cake. It couldn't wait until Saturday.
I'm going to freeze it and I will take it with me to Holland when I go later this month. My mother will love it.
Now for my postcard:
This is a card I sent a few days ago. It is a tiled image of a bull fighter and it sits on the wall of a Madrid restaurant called Los Timbales:
Now for some funnies with dogs:
Aren't the sub woofers cute!
I hope this made you smile as it did me. I'm going to link up with Annie at A Stitch in Time for Friday Smiles. Please join us with you good news, happy photos and smiles and giggles.
Have a lovely weekend and a good week ahead,
