While in the States they are sinking in snow, we have no snow anymore but rain instead. Ilona had problems with her tablet and had given it for reparation as it was ready we went to the shop together and good news ! she got a new one ! It was probably more expensive to repair than to replace.

After that we went to the charity shop for battered women to see if there was something interesting to buy. I didn't find anything, but Ilona found two very beautiful fashion necklaces and some kitchen utensils. Everything is so cheap in this shop ! By coincidence we met Nicole there, she wanted to walk Charlie in the park opposite to the shop. We didn't go with her as the weather was so cold and humid and we spent the rest of the afternoon home in the warmth with a cup of tea.

Chantal came over on Sunday to give me the departure and arrival hours for her trip to Toronto. Her youngest son was very ill he has a very strange disease called Ghilain Barré and just came out of hospital. As he can't stay the whole day alone and his girlfriend is working she flies over to help. Not such a nice season to travel to Canada in January. She will stay over night in our house and I drive her to the airport next morning.

We made a little tour in our Indian shop I bought two little earrings and my night cream. Nicole joined us and we had a cup of Indian tea in the shop, which was very very sweet. 

There is a little corner to sit down and have tea just behind the plant. The elephant outside was now painted in pink, I preferred how it was before.

Your journeys here and there always entertain me. Glad you could help your friend out by taking her to the airport. I know she was grateful. Take care, stay warm.

You don't have snow, we don't have rain and now they are talking of a mini heat wave here. I give up. It seems like the seasons are upside down. Maybe we will have rain in July and August but I doubt it.

No snow in our part of the United States! But it is cooler than usual for Florida's subtropical climate -- and more rain. That doesn't make me super happy. Because that's the kind of weather we'd have if we had stayed in Oregon all winter. I hope your friend packs her winter long-johns and boots. It is going to be so cold for her in Canada.

I like pink elephants. Although I must admit, it looks more like the entrance to a toy shop now. But I still like pink elephants!!
