Skywatch through a window

Sometimes I think I just could copy and paste my weekly reports ! It's always the same !

Our scrabble took place in a new scrabble member's house, unfortunately I forgot to take pictures because it was quite special. Especially the inside decoration. In the very huge living room was the kitchen corner but then nearly no furniture at all. In a corner were two orange sofas and all over the place were 3 different little round or square tables with 4 chairs, all in another style and in different places. On the walls hung her very beautiful self painted modern paintings. I had never seen such a fancy interior, but it felt really cosy inside. Although the weather was grey outside it seemed that light flooded into the interior through the enormous windows.

This time I had a real bad game, always very low numbers and of course I lost. The game took quite some time and afterwards we had a delicious apricot cake.

I did the laundry as you can see

and that nobody talks about "good old times" !!!!

Mr. G's Whist friend, who is also my friend invited us and Nicole for an afternoon chat. Poor Mr. G. was alone amongst the 3 chatterboxes and was certainly regretting not to play his whist on the computer ! And the poor girl thought she would do him a favor by inviting him so that he wouldn't be alone at home .... But he enjoyed a delicious strawberry cake and of course got the biggest part.

Monique wore a beautiful silver necklace of which you could take off a piece and wear it as bracelet. The clasp looked very easy when she took the necklace off, but then to get it together, Mr. G. and Nicole worked at least half an hour and got angry and excited because it had seemed so easy and they couldn't find out how it worked ! As they are both very stubborn, they absolutely wanted to find out the solution without any help. It took a while but then they found out, had to laugh and were angry at the same time because apparently it was very simple !! I didn't even try, I would have thrown the necklace on the table I have no patience or fix it with a wire !

I ended the week with creating Easter cards not in paper but for emails and stated that you have to pay now for most of the "photoshop" companies, which in the past were free. Or you have to subscribe. Finally I managed, not exactly what I wanted but it's better then nothing.

We love playing Scrabble too. One game that we have become hooked on is on the phone and it's called Boggle with Friends - it's really fun.

Glad Mr. G and Nicole got to figure out the solution for the necklace. Sometimes something so simple can be very hard :-)
Have a great weekend!

Your Scrabble game might not have been very good, but you seem to have enjoyed the new member's house. I had to laugh about Mr. G and the necklace/bracelet.
As for the old washing machines, they pre-date anything I ever saw, although possibly my grandmothers might have remembered them. I do remember wringer washers in the 1950s, however, and electric dryers were unheard of in my childhood...my mother and grandmother taught me how to use the wringer washer, and the 'proper' way to hang clothes out on the line.
Old memories and some giggles with this post, my friend! Thank you, and please give my best to Mr. G.
Love, Kay

Little things that have to be manipulated with now not-so-nimble fingers is always so hard for me now! I had to give up a few things I used to love to do, and it takes me 10 minutes to put a necklace on! :-)

One day soon we will be rejoicing about the sunny weather! It's interesting to see inside someone else's home especially when it's a completely different style to your own. Happy Easter and hope you keep warm!

That strawberry cake looks delicious! I get frustrated that I seem to spend more time that I should on laundry for just three of us, but it's still better than "the good old days." I am glad some people are patient with figuring out those sorts of puzzles.

Willow said...

Even when you lose the games are fun. And it's always good to spend time with friends.
That strawberry cake looks yummy!
Happy Easter!

That house sounds amazing. I love light filled cozy spaces with a modern feel. My own house is none of those things. Certainly thankful for modern washing machines (and dryers)! Hope you have a great weekend and a Happy Easter.

A good sky shot!

I've never played scrabble.

You were too busy looking at the lovely paintings and decor to pay attention to your Scrabble game !

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Neither do people talk about how great it was to wash clothes by beating them against the rocks at the river or creek. lol I would've been stubborn like your friends and work at the clasp until it came undone.

We've played a few games this weekend but not Scrabble. I would have persevered with the necklace too - I hate being defeated by things like that. We too have had lots of wet weather. I hope it improves soon.
