Hello lovely friends,
I'm posting late this morning as I hadn't realised it was Friday! Yesterday was a Bank Holiday here in Spain and today feels a bit like Monday. A lot of people have today off as well. They call it a 'puente' (bridge). They take or have the Friday off and that results in a super long weekend for those that normally work.
But today is Friday so I will tell you about my smiles this week and link up with the lovely Annie at A Stitch In Time and with Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday. And at the end I will add a few funnies that I dig up from the internet.
But first of all my postcards. That is after all what my blog is all about:
The first postcard is very obviously from Ireland. It is a map card and I do like map cards, so this one pleased me no end. It has all the things on it we would associate with Ireland: sheep, leprechaun, castles, luck (horse shoe), the colour green and the four-leaf-clovers. I don't know what the hat and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow represent. Does anyone know?
The stamps are absolutely gorgeous. The images are flowers. The names of the flowers are in latin and in the Irish language, so I don't know what they are without looking them up. The stamp on the right is hexagonal. Very beautiful.
The next card comes from Germany. It has a cross on it. A person called Dagmar sent it to me. The cross is a relic holder from the chapel in Kevelaar in Germany.
Like the irish stamps, these stamps also have a floral theme:
OK, what have I been up to this week. Saturday is the day I go to our Spanish/English conversation group. You can see me on the left.
It was a success.
But winter is on its way. There is snow on the Sierra Nevada, which is visible in the middle far distance in the photo taken from the cave kitchen window.
The trees are changing colour and losing their leaves.
That's it from me. A quickie as it is already 11 a.m. and Annie will be wondering where I am.
Of course here are some funnies for you to giggle at. My personal favorite is the Adam and Eve one.
Have a good week,
and keep smiling!
update: Please read Virginia's comment, where she explains more about the images on my Irish postcard. Thank you Virginia!
