FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. It still was unusually warm during the week always over 20°C (68 F) some of my friends even had a barbecue during the weekend !
As it was time to trim the bushes and hedges in the garden, for the last time this year, the weather was perfect to do this.
Our young gardener took care of this and had a lot of work ! Everything had grown as if we were in a tropical jungle !
2. The flower bouquet my son brought me last Saturday is in full bloom and looks beautiful now, that all
blossoms are open.
Mr. G. still has quiet a strong cold and also got an eye infection, I too wasn't feeling to well and my nose started running. It's no wonder with these roller coaster temperatures. One day you need a fur coat and the next a bathing suit ! I had to drive him to the ophtamologist who prescribed him an antibiotic creme. Poor man now sees me double (or triple version) with one eye and a half, I suspect that with one version he has already enough.
3.. I didn't go to my Yoga classes I felt a little weak for that, and Dominique was also kind of lazy instead we sat in her garden and had a cup of coffee, before she started with mowing the lawn for the last time and I returned to my emails.
4. Fortunately I had bought enough deepfreezed plates which I just had to warm up in the microwave, because with the two of us being "out of work" it was the easiest way not to starve. We had tagliatelle with salmon, leek and zucchinis, Spaghettis with pesto and mussels, and Potatoes Savoyarde which is a classical French dish - a gratin - ham cubes, and 3 sorts of cheese. So today I had to go shopping and fill in the deepfreeze again. The average price of these dishes is around 8 € for the two of us, for that price I couldn't cook all this myself !
Our son sent us some pictures which he had taken last weekend when he visited us with Toby.
and in my painting class I finished my last painting. Our exposition is end November. We all have to present at least 3 paintings which we have done this year.
