So what have the smiles been in my week?
Definitely my walks with my friend Antonia. We go walking every Friday and Monday morning. The last couple of weeks we have been going to the sierra, the hills that we see from our window.
Another walk on Monday:
The trees are magnificent. The Atlas Cedars (cedrus atlantica) are impressive. They have started to grow little cones.
Then on Tuesday hubby and I went to the sierra again, in the car, to collect pine cones to light the fire with. Also little pieces of wood that we use for kindling. We collected six large bags from different locations.
I have since ordered a new oven, and it has arrived yesterday. It has a steam option. Hmm, interesting.
