FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE



more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

1. Since I made a cross on summer, I feel much better. Now I wait that the trees get colored and then do their annual striptease, and I can look for pumpkins to put in my flower pots. I hate these in between seasons except spring !



But looking at Rosie in her basket keeps my mood up !


2. After I had given up on summer, of course it came back just for one day and we could eat in the garden of my favourite Asian restaurant. Now on Mondays they serve a buffet where you can eat as much as you want to for 10 € only ! We had a lot of fun because everybody was in a good mood, sitting outside in the sun and enjoying good food !

3. I spent some time on Ebay, it was the first time I wanted to buy something, and was surprised about all the stuff which you can buy or sell that suddenly the whole afternoon was gone !

4. Finally I was watching the time and bid at one second before the end (for those who don't know, everything is sold in auction) and got this nice little chair for only 18 € ! It's a well known brand mark and very comfortable, at least I hope so I didn't try it out and the cats neither. I will keep it here so the little Prince can sit with Nonna and Nonno (Grandma and Grandpa in Italian) and the cats !



3 positions and approved by Rosie

When I picked it up near Namur which was about 40 km from Waterloo, I thought I could also take some pictures of the beautiful landscape but it rained so much that I was already wet just of getting out of my car and into the house ! The young mother was very friendly and finally I stayed there and we chatted together for an hour before I returned home with my little chair ! Mr. G. had already hoped thought that I had got lost and disappeared forever.

5. The best was yesterday when my painting class started again after the summer holidays ! Of course from the 3 h class, we chatted at least for 2 h and the coffee break was a real long one ! But we had so many things to talk since we hadn't seen each other for almost two months. I think somebody who watched us from outside thought he was in a chicken yard rather than in a painting class.



Our class looked like this, the old ladies of the retirement home had made the decoration and had decorated their party hall, which is also our classroom. I took the picture before everybody arrived. It makes the room so cheerful !

I must learn to use ebay and get some things for Buebli who is coming up in October.

For many months, I was on ebay daily. I bought some really nice jewelry in that time. However, with San Francisco's massive budget cuts, I lost my forensic nursing position of 18 years and had to retire ( a $90000 loss in annual income ) - so it's no more ebay shopping for me - if I want to eat!!

Nice find on Ebay! Some of the leaves are starting to color here as well. Christmas won't be long! LOL!
Have a wonderful weekend Gattina!

Melissa said...

eBay can be habit-forming! But when it's kept under control, it's a fun place to browse and shop.

cindy said...

Wonderful list.
I too wonder where the summer went. Then those days that just fly by when you can start exploring the internet, good bid.

People are placing pumpkins out by the end of the road for sale it is looking well decorated around here.

Cute kitty cat!! Cats can be so fun!

Beautiful painting too!

Susanne said...

I love how cats make all these weird sleeping positions in their beds.

That's a great chair you picked up for your grandchild. I'm not an ebay shopper but hubby gets on there once in awhile.

Karyn said...

The picture of the cat made me laugh out loud!

Your eBay find will be very handy to have around. Funny, isn't it, how just after we have finally gotten rid of all the baby paraphanalia we start collecting it again - to have at Gramma's house. My house is as full of toys and highchairs and playpens as it ever was when my kids were small! But it's worth it - and grandbabies are so wonderful!

Nessa said...

You cat in her basket is so cute. I wish I could stretch like that.

momma24 said...

Great list! Love the pic of your cat in the basket. :-D

Loree said...

You had a busy week. The decorations in your classroom look very cheerful.

Willow said...

Rosie is an excellent kitty cat model! You've had a great week. That was a good find on ebay! Enjoy the transition of seasons. I hope autumn comes quickly now so you can enjoy it.

Love the chair. That's going to be great for a "bouncy chair" for a baby. It always amazes me to see the positions that cats can get into to make themselves comfortable. Such flexibility!

Great chair for the little one, I love the color too.

...and the decorations look very colorful, I agree that they are cheerful - love them!

...some day I must have a look at Ebay too...

Sorry about your lousy weather but I'm glad things cleared up for a nice dinner out. Pretty soon you are going to have to add on to your house for all the wonderful things you are finding for little prince. What a fortunate little one! Have a good weekend.

claudie said...

The nice baby chair you found on ebay!!! And so cheap!!!
Je voudrais qu'en France les associations de peinture soient dans l'enceinte des maisons de retraite comme à Waterloo!! C'est si dommage de couper les personnes agées du monde des vivants!!!

Melli said...

What a great buy on the baby chair! And I LOVE those red poppy flowers!!! SO cheerful!

Nice blog, your Rosie looks so comfortable! I have a Rosie, too and I grew up in Waterloo, Waterloo, Iowa, USA, that is.

Loved your picture of the pope with only his shoes and robe showing.
