Hello lovely ladies, Howe are you all?
Today I look back on what made me smile this week. It's not all doom and gloom and in particular the people in the United States will be feeling a bit more positive now they have a new president.
We have had a good week, where we have been able to spend time with friends. Although not hugging or even touching each other and keeping our physical distance is something I haven't got used to yet (and probably never will).
Another highlight was some more postcards in my postbox. I want to show you this one:
It comes from Finland and it shows the Petäjävesi Old Church. It is a wooden church located in Petäjävesi, Finland. It was built between 1763 and 1765, when Tavastia was still a part of Sweden. The bell tower was built in 1821. It was inscribed in 1994 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Here is a photo of it from Wikipedia:
The church is located about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) to the west of the centre of Petäjävesi. It went out of use in 1879 when a new church was built. The old church has retained its original appearance and its interior decoration exceptionally well. It is a popular church for weddings in the summer, and there is a church service on most Sundays.
The interior is amazing.
The postcard had a beautiful stamp on it. Finnish stamps are always very beautiful. This one shows Siringa vulgaris, or common lilac to you and me.
Friday was a busy day for me, and I also managed to make a layered cake with thin layers of sponge and patisserie creme in between. It turned out very lovely.
Our friends invited us for a meal and before going home we took a picture.(And oops, we touched each other!)
On Sunday I accompanied hubbie to our plot of land. The weather was so gorgeous. Our house is behind my head on the bottom photo, so you see it is not far really.
On Monday morning hubby had to have blood tests done and as he had to be nil-by-mouth, we went to have breakfast afterwards.
On Tuesday we were given some salad onion plants to plant. Way too many for us and we asked around who else would like some.
Hubby planted 60 salad onion plants.
Then yesterday our other friends came to collect the plants and stayed for lunch.
That was my week. Quite eventful really, and the weather has been nice too. All in all a good week.
As always I am sharing some funnies I found on the Internet. (Only one last Trump joke).
The very last one is especially for Kate. And some doggie funnies for Angela (and even a steam punk one).
Wishing everyone a very fine weekend and
One of the funnies mentions ASDA. For those not familiar with the name: ASDA is the British Walmart.
And this last one is for Kate:
