Good morning lovely ladies!
How are you all? It's Friday again and time to look back on the week and count our blessings and show you what made us smile this week.
Usually my first smile is a postcard that has come through the door. But as we are moing from downstairs to upstairs, the scanner hasn't been set up yet so I have no photos of the cards that came in this morning. But I do have some cards that I sent to other people in the club. Some people like maps, so I always have some map card on hand.
Here is our province of Granada. We live in Caniles, which is near the bull's tail. As you can see we are on the edge of the province and when we drive down the road, we end up in the Almeria province.Here is a similar card with the Almeria province on it. There is a lot more coastline in Almeria, and our blog friend Kate lives in this province.
How has your week been? My week has been super busy and I am absolutely shattered, because we have been moving from down stairs to upstairs and that is four storeys!
We started with justr sleeping upstairs.....
Saturday I went walking with my friend and we came by the herb place. They were distilling lavender and the smell was lovely as you can imagine.
Then hubby and I went to a friend who lives in the hills with lots of horses, to collect manure.
We managed to fill the trailer and two large sacks in the car. It was gone 3 pm when we got back, so we had lunch at the Kiosko bar near our house.
On Sunday morning we went to the 'rastro', a sort of car boot sale. Hubby had told me there was a young lady that made (fake) bonsais that he liked, so we went to say hello to her and we bought one of her banzais. She sculpts the bottom and the green bits are live moss.
On Monday we went to our cave house. I took some left over paste with sauce, made a cheese sauce and stuck it in the oven to make 'pasticcio'. Very nice.,
Virginia had recommended a stove fan, so i decided to get one. It is activated by the heat and it helps distribute the warmth evenly through the room in stead of straight up to the ceiling (hot air rises). We felt the difference and we are very pleased. Thank you Virginia!
On Tuesday we found ourselves in our cave house in the country. When we are there we always go to this restaurant. There aren't many people as Granada city is in lockdown. (no passing trade).
On Wednesday we met the couple that temporarily is coming to live with us. She is an artist and she and her husband have a 4 year old boy. The have a house out in the sierra, a long drive over mountainous dirt tracks. The school run is a night mare and they are looking for something to rent in the village.
As this couple is going to stay with us for a while, we need to vacate the bottom flat. All our summer clothes (which we usually leave down there), all the books, all the pantry items and all personal stuff needed to be carried upstairs. It was a tiring day. I must say that the husband came to help us for a few hours that morning.
That was my week. Very exhausting, but I hope the couple can move in on Saturday.
The other news is that we are heading for a lock down. We are now no longer allowed to travel without a good reason. We have to stay in our village and there are road blocks everywhere. It doesn't effect us much as we don't go out much. The shops as well as my pantry are well stocked.
I'll leave it at that as I need to go to bed now.
There will be some funnies at the end as per usual.
Have a lovely weekend and a good week.
I'm going to link up with Annie at A Stitch In Time, and with Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday.
