Hello lovely ladies, It's Friday again and time to share our smiles and silver lining. Annie at A Stitch In Time and Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday will be sharing their smiles too, so let's visit them.
We've had a good week. It has been hubby's week of rest from the chemo, so he is feeling good and is happy. So I am happy too.
First off some postcards I received. I seem to be getting loads now. I have so many to show you that I will do two at a time.
This one comes from the US and seems to be a photograph from in between the two world wars. I like this one because we are all longing for the days when we can go out with a girl friend and have a coffee and a natter.
These are the stamps that are on this card.
Here is another one that many people are longing for (in some countries): the hairdresser! Although this one has a poor dog in the picture!
I bet quite a few of you remember these hair dryers...
So, what has been happening with me this week? What have I been up to?
On Friday I had to collect a parcel from the post office. Normally I just ignore the queue and get my mail out of my mailbox, but for a parcel I have to queue like everyone else. (Amazon will deliver to the post office, which is very handy).
Hubby has taken my sewing machine apart as I have a machine on loan from a friend who is stuck in the UK, but she is coming back soon, so we'll have to sort this one out.
The drawn tortoise was on the back of the postcard with the hair dryers. (It's in my profile that I like turtles and tortoises).
Saturday was nice weather and I spent time in the company of my plants. The lettuce is in our veggie plot, the cactus is indoors and the flowers and seeds are on our little patio
Sunday I went for a walk! It was a 16 km hike really. All the photos are on my previous blog post. Here is the link for those who haven't seen it yet. I was very tired and my legs ached for two days, but it was wonderful. We walked with masks on of course and that is not very nice, but I am glad I was able to keep up (only just) with the youngsters. I was the only 'older' person.
Monday I understandably didn't do very much. Hubby was working hard as it is his week off the chemo and he is feeling in form. He is building a chicken run on the cave roof. (which is ground where the chickens can scratch).
On Tuesday I had a hospital appointment. A mammogram and some bloods. Hubby waited for me in the car and when I had finished we went to have breakfast at a nearby bar. (I had to be nil by mouth for the bloods) They have a lovely terrace, so we enjoyed the morning sun. They also squeeze their oranges, which we like.
You can see, in the photo bottom left, our little patio from the first floor terrace. It's not very big, but ideal for the two of us to sit in and have meals together.
Hubby is also building a greenhouse, (poly tunnel type). To cover the top bit he needed an extra pair of hands. So our lovely neighbor Angel came to help him again.
On Wednesday another visit to the hospital, this time for hubby to have his pre-chemo Covid test.
Then on Thursday our third hospital visit this week: Hubby's chemo. But after having done a blood test, the oncologist told hubby that his platelets are too low and he can't have his chemo this week. I must admit he was rather pleased about that, so he could finish working on his green house.
My cousin was visiting my mum and she sent me some photos from her phone. Mum will be 97 next month. She's looking good.
I'm going to leave it at that.
Of course i will leave you with some assorted funnies that i picked up along the way.
Have a fab weekend
Hubby is wearing a t-shirt with 'Kay-ve man' on it. His surname is Kay, and we have a cave house.
