Hello lovely girls,
Today is Friday Smiles and we join Annie at A Stitch In Time with whatever made us smile this week.
I've had a lot to smile about. And one of the things that always makes me smile is a postcard in my mail box. This week I feature this card from France as it makes me think of holidays. It is a map of a part of France that we know well. It is in Western Brittany and some of you might have been there too. Brittany is very beautiful.
The card was sent to me by Stephanie, who lives in that area. She tells me that she likes books by Joel Dicker, Gillian Flynn and Liane Moriarty.
The stamp commemorates the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Paris at the end of WWII.
Last week we had bought a gas water heater, and hubby has been busy installing it. He is allowed to do this as we don't have natural gas, but only butane bottled gas. This type of water heater is especially made for bottled gas.
The water heater is an outdoor one (cheaper and besides, there is no room in the kitchen) and he installed it next to the front door.
Sunday is the Lord's day and most of the day is dedicated to Him. We watched Kings Church Windsor on live streaming for their Sunday morning service. In the evening we joined a local group as we are now allowed to socialize more. We stayed outside, with a bit of distancing too.
On Monday hubby made a little door to hide the water heater and put a lock on it so it doesn't 'walk'. I had lots of smiles hearing (and seeing) the goats from our terrace. They come round every evening, but this evening they were much closer.
Normally when I have my oncology appointment, I go straight from oncology to the appropriate departments to make the appointments for next year. This time I had a telephone consultation with the oncologist so they sent me all the paperwork by post and I had to then go to the hospital to make the next appointments. I didn't want to do that during the lockdown, but decided that now would be OK. So I did that on Tuesday.
Another big smile was a great photo of my son and grandson, who are enjoying time on the beach. They live in Italy not far from the beach, so they always rent a spot (Plus parasol and chairs) for the whole season.
We are nearing the time that we will move downstairs to the summer area of our house. So the big spring clean has started. Our biggest problem are the weevils that get into the flour. So the pantry gets disinfected completely and re-painted. In the photo you see two tables with all the items that were still in the downstairs pantry. Hubby was painting, while my job was to check dates and throw away what we don't want or what is out of date.
On Thursday I finally got round to taping my jigsaw as we are now going to find someone who can make a frame (I wish I lived nearer to an Ikea, they have ready-made large picture frames)
Bye for now,
