FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE

SATURDAY's PHOTOHUNTER POST IS here




more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

1. After aqua gym Dominique and I went to the new store which really sells everything to surprising cheap prices.



I found these solar lamps, which accumulate the light during the day and shine bright during the night. It looks really nice all along the entrance.



After that, we went to our little Greek restaurant and had a nice Pita !

2. The next day I had to go back to the store, because one of the lamps didn't work and I had to change it



When I parked my car, I was with my thoughts I don't know where, and suddenly saw a man in front of me ! I jumped on my brakes to stop the car, when I realized that the guy was only an advertising ! I exchanged my lamp and of course came out with other things which I suddenly needed !

3.



For the first time this year I could sit outside and enjoy the sun together with Nicole and dog Charlie. What a feeling ! I had come over to help her 86 year old neighbor to connect to Internet, she had bought a laptop and had Wifi installed, but she didn't know anything about a computer ! I finally managed to connect her computer to Internet and she was very happy. She had realized that even at her age it's never too late to learn something, especially for making her payments. She has no car and the bank is far away.  First thing now she has to learn is making her payments "online". Nicole is sharing the Internet with her, so we went to her flat and I connected the Internet on her computer too. First it didn't work, although the connection was done and then we realized that the walls were so thick, that it didn't go through. We changed the place and it worked ! I was rather proud of myself I have to admit, because it was the first time I had helped out for an Internet connection.

4.



In my free time I work on a book, called "Cat Chats". It's almost finished I had downloaded all the posts I wanted to be published, with the help of "SharedBook". There are still some corrections to do with the layout. But it already looks quiet nice.

5.


Since last year I was dreaming of a lawn mower robot ! It became more and more hard for me to mow the lawn, although it's a rather small piece. But still carrying around the heavy machine and pushing it left me quiet exhausted. So when I heard that the Garden shop was closing down and I could get a cheaper price, I ran to the shop after my painting class and bought the last one, apparently other people had the same idea !! Was I happy ! It's not heavy at all, and doesn't need a special installation. All I have to do is charging the battery put the thing on the grass push a button and off it goes. Of course I couldn't try it out yet, because after our "spring" break with sunshine and warm temperatures, snow and frost is announced for the weekend !  But at least I have my toy !

We have some solar lights along the front sidewalk, too, though a little different style. They're very nice!

I'd have been startled by that advertisement, too!

Good for you for helping someone with an Internet connection! I don't think I could have done that. My youngest son's computer has to be right by his door to get a connection, too, as his room is farthest away from the router. When we first set it up with his desk further back in the room, he couldn't get Wifi.

The cat book sounds fun!

Brenda said...

Yay! You got your robot! I will be interested in hearing how it works for you.
You made me laugh at almost running into the 'man'!

Sayre said...

I love the little robot mower. If I had a a tiny patch, that's the way I'd go (but I have a very large patch, so that wouldn't work).

It was good to see you in my comments again - I've been missing my blog friends!

claudie said...

How good it must be to feel the warmth of the sun on your face.

LONDONLULU said...

Cat Chats looks like a lot of fun! How nice you could help your neighbor. (Your pita looked delicious too:)

Willow said...

You may be the only person I know who can't wait for the lawn to grow so you can mow it!
Kudos to you for helping your friend and her neighbor with the internet!

Linens and Royals said...

An Author and an artist! you have many talents.
Are you sure you will get enough sun for solar lamps?
Keep an eye on that mower Rosie, it might suddenly move and trim your fur.

Susanne said...

Yay, you finally got your Robo lawn mower. Now you sit back and relax and still have that lawn mowed.

The advertising guy made me laugh but I imagine it gave you quite a start until you realized what it was!

You know so much about computers and connecting things up. I'm afraid that's my hubby's department at my house.

A lawn mowing robot that sounds like a great investment. Looking forward to hearing how well it works, Glad to hear that it warmed up for a day or so. We are having good temperatures now not too hot just right but it is still wet.

Louisette said...

it is a pleasure to walk on your blog? greeting from Mons, have a nice weekend!

Gattina said...

To Louisette : Can't comment on your blogs, there is no comment section and I can't get in touch with you by email either.
On est presque voisins !

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

I am still around and calling by your blogs, just no time for commenting at the moment. My husband is still in hospital as he has been since before Christmas apart from a brief sojurn at home, but hopefully he is able to have an operation shortly.

I do love those bargains!

Glad to hear you've enjoyed a bit of sunshine. Here's hoping next week has more for you!
