Hello lovely girls,
Here we are again on Friday. This week has flown by. Restrictions have been relaxed once more and we can do more things now.
But the one thing that I like doing is sending and receiving postcards. That has hardly changed.
Today I want to show you this card which I like very much. I have a thing about doors and windows. And this door is beautiful and it is in a wonderful house with a thatched roof. It comes from Germany.
The writing underneath reads: Reetdachhaus (= house with a thatched roof), im Nordfriesischen Suderdeich. (in a place called Suederdeich which is in Nordfriesland, the most northern region of Germany).
The stamps are beautiful too. I like the Beethoven one on the right. (250th anniversary of his birth).
We have been cleaning and preparing the downstairs flat. Our house is over 4 floors and in winter we live upstairs where we have large windows which let in much needed light and there is heating. In summer, when it gets very hot, we move to the downstairs flat where it is much cooler and the windows are smaller.
We have suffered grief from weevils in our flour and other products. The pantry has been cleaned, disinfected and re-painted.
I entered a nice photo into the league at the photoclub. (Theme was: 'Sea'):
I thought it was a rather nice photo, but I got disqualified, because I didn't get the size right. I'm quite annoyed with myself for that.
On Monday we had our first cup of coffee at a bar since the beginning of March. Only outside seats allowed. But it was lovely. Hubby had shoved his mask onto his forehead to be able to drink. Silly man!
I'm starting to frame my jigsaws. This is the first one. We found a large frame at the Chinese bazar.
More cleaning. I cleaned the fridge and put stuff back onto the pantry shelves.
And yesterday I finally had a haircut! Bliss!That was my week. Full of exciting moments. Lots of things to smile about.
How has your week been? Have you also had many smiles? Do share them with us at Annie's A Stitch In Time.
I'm also going to call on Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday.
And of course I will find you some funnies to add at the bottom. I apologise if you have seen some of them before. They usually do the rounds on the Internet before I pick them up.
Have a lovely weekend and a good week to follow.
Wrestlers in action, 2020.

Williams, a fledgling artist with a reputation for drawing how he sees it, has honed a style that hearkens back to the Realism movement.
In the latest addition to Williams' Quarantine series, the subject is WWE wrestlers in action. Williams rejects Romantic conventions and delivers the raw emotions of wrestlers Rey Mysterio and Jeff hardy in the ring.
Critics agree that Wrestlers in Action is a thought-provoking composition that challenges the viewer to reflect on their own emotion stemming from being a prisoner in their own home during a toilet paper shortage.
