Hello lovely peeps,
How are you all? Let forget about the virus for a moment and concentrate on what made us smile this week.
My mailbox was happy several times this week and I would like to show you this postcard in black and white.
It was sent to me from the USA by someone who calls herself Fieryrogue. The photo is entitled 'Beauty Queens of the 40s and 50s'. One of them is wearing a bikini. Very daring in those days. I nearly started singing 'Itsy bitsy teeny weeny' when I saw there were no polka dots in sight. (Anyone remember that song?)
So, what have i been up to this week?
We had rain! It was a good few hours! Great for the land, but not nearly enough. All the swallows were congregating before disappearing to warmer climes.On my walk we walked through the gypsy district and I came past this garden full of these beautiful flowers.
On Monday I went shopping in the village (post office and baker) and later in the day, we both went into town to the supermarket for our weekly groceries.
We had the sourdough pancakes for breakfast on Tuesday and they were horrible. Perhaps the starter has gone off. It smells awful. But then I have no idea how it is supposed to smell. I don't have much luck with sourdough starters.
On Wednesday I went to see a photoclub member who has a bakery, then I walked through a part of the village I don't normally walk through, so that was interesting.
