Hello lovely ladies!
Here we are again on a Friday to share our silver linings so to speak. Annie at A Stitch In Time is our host, so come and join us with some smiles.
I have been ill for a while and my big smile is that I'm getting better. I have been out to the market on Tuesday, (the first time i have been out in weeks), my cough is much less and I feel I have turned a corner. Big smile!
The other thing that usually makes me smile are the postcards that arrive in my postbox. Here is one from the Czeck Republik:It features women in traditional goat's coats from Kunovic.
The stamp is wonderful. It features a plane. I looked it up (as you do...). Wikipedia tells me: The Lockheed Model 10 Electra is an American twin-engined, all-metal monoplane airliner developed by the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation in the 1930s to compete with the Boeing 247 and Douglas DC-2. The type gained considerable fame as one was flown by Amelia Earhart on her ill-fated around-the-world expedition in 1937.
The second card comes from Finland, and is an answer to my requests for windows and doors. This one looks a bit overgrown, but perhaps it is a back door.
It was sent to me by Eila, who is a 52 yr old nurse. She says the best thing about Finland is nature.
The stamps are lovely. Look at that calla. I hope mine will flower soon. The one on the left features long-tailed ducks (clangula hyemalis).
I have not much else to mention as I have not been anywhere. The corona virus still seems to be the hype everywhere. How are things where you are?
I'm not too worried. We live in the north of the Granada province and according to the Andalucian ministery of health (Andalucia is an independent region), there are no cases of the virus in our province, yet. (the map is from Wednesday's paper). Our bit of coastline is not very touristy and it is early in the season.
I am disappointed that our Danish friends, who were going to come next week, have cancelled their holiday. We don't get many visitors and this year several people have promised to come, and I get really excited about that. So it is a disappointment when people have to cancel.
Finally I want to show you what we had for dinner today (it's still Thursday):
A devilled cottage pie. The 'devilled' bit means it is spicy. It was yummy and we only ate half of it as I always cook too much. The rest goes in the freezer for a day when I don't fancy cooking (or have no time).
That is my part done dear ladies. Please follow me to Annie's and Virginia's. They also have some smiles for you. (I have some smiles at the end as per usual).
Please leave a comment. It's so nice when people say hello.
I'll say goodbye for now. Have a lovely weekend,
Take care, and....
There are some golf funnies,
And funnies about clothes hangers (!),
and Halloween (yes, I know it's early)...
