A Postcard A Day - Friday 2 June 2023 - Second on the 2nd combined with Friday Smiles - A post from 2016

 Today (2 June 2023) I am traveling so this post is scheduled. 

Elizabeth and Bluebeard, of 'T for Tuesday' fame, organise 'Second on the 2nd' every month (on the second day of the month). We find a blog post that merits being posted again and post that. I have a blogpost from seven years ago. It happens to be a Friday post so it will do for Friday Smiles as well.

Here it is:

A Postcard A Day - 1 July 2016 Friday Smiles

Good Morning! It's Friday again, and here I am telling you what sort of week I have had.

I have had fun taking pictures for the 2016 Summertime Photo Scavengers Hunt organised by Rinda at the Gallo Organico website. Have a look at the site. She lists 21 (not difficult) things to photograph and it is fun to see what other people have made of it.

One of the photos below is going to be entered for the Scavenger Hunt. I will tell you which one when I get to it.

Last week we were invited by (British) friends in the village. We had fun making our own pizzas:
and then baking them in the outdoor oven:
They came out really well! As a surprise they had bought a bottle of Chianti, Italian wine. It was in one of those traditional basket bottles. 
Gosh, that takes me back! (I used to live in Italy in the 70s and 80s). Needless to say we had a great time.

The best thing of all was...
the jacuzzi! I loved it! 

This is the photo for the Scavenger Hunt. Number 9 is "Someone playing with, in, or around water". I think this qualifies.

My postcard this week is one I sent out recently to someone in Canada. 

It is a little girl in a flamenco pose dressed in traditional Andalucian style. Isn't she cute?

And finally something funny I came across:
It did make me smile!

I hope you have all had much to smile about. Why don't you share these things (like I am going to do) with Annie at 'A Stitch In Time'.

Have a great week you'all,
Keep smiling!


  1. I decided to whizz around the blogs before we leave to be sure I could leave you comments. I've got up with vertigo this morning so am really not sure how the weekend will go but we will see....I'm keeping everything crossed.
    I hope your journey goes well and you have a lovely time.

  2. What a fun second look, Lisca. Do you need me to link you? This goes really well with Friday Smiles, too. I also played in several of Rinda's Summertime Challenges. I remember that prompt. I ran the hose in my driveway and stepped in the water, thus showing my feet and legs. Yours was much better than mine. Your sister looks like she was having a wonderful time in the Jacuzzi.

    You have a wonderful outdoor oven. I would make pizza there every day! Thanks for sharing this second look on the 2nd, dear Lisca. I hope you have a safe trip, where ever you are headed.

  3. Forgot to mention how much I like the different socks.

  4. Now I want pizza. And a jacuzzi!
    Sounds like a super-fun day!
    Cute cat...

  5. What fun to look back an an old post like this! The swimming pool is lovely and the cat is definitely a good find.

  7. A nice look back. I like going through my older posts sometimes.
    Safe travels. Enjoy your adventure. I hope you have a wonderful time. Kate x

  8. That sounds like a lot of fun Lisca, And I love the cat's "socks". Happy Second on the Second! Elle/EOTC xx
