The week has really flown by. The weather has improved immensely and the temperatures are now in the 20s (Celcius). I love it.
My postcard for today comes from Russia
It is a painting by Anna Silvonchik and is called "Stork's Gift", oil on canvas 2012. Svetlana sent it to me quite recently. There are some lovely stamps on it too:
How has your week been? Mine has been fine. (I will be linking up with Virginia for Rocking Your World Friday). I finished the lace project I was doing (the bell) and you can see that on my previous blog (Wednesday). All I have to do now is starch it.
My DH has finished the bathroom, and is doing the lights on the terrace. Saturday he will start on my craft room downstairs. I had been using this craft room on concrete floor and with bare bricks. Even the shelving was made out of bare bricks. Now it's going to be done properly. So of course I have had to take everything out! All my craft stuff is now in the old kitchen in boxes on improvised shelving (again). My desk is there too so at least i can do something. I'm looking forward to it being finished. That has to be in the middle of June as we are expecting guests then.
My magazine from Holland (that I subscribe to) Flow has arrived today and I spent quite a lot of time relaxing and reading it.
Isn't it colourful? It has a little booklet inside to practice drawing letters. And I loved reading about Frida Kahlo.
Today I have been hanging curtains. Half the window is done. I have not taken a photo because the room is still in a mess. Next week.
That sums me up....
But I keep smiling. I've reached my target weight: 60kg! Hurray! No more diet, and I can drink wine again!
I'm also linking up with Annie at A Stitch In Time for Friday Smiles. I don't really have any funnies today. But I did see this posted by one of you (can't remember who it was) which is very appropriate for me at the moment. I have been potting my geraniums and my chilli pepper seedlings are reading to be potted too.
Monday we plan to go away for a few days in our campervan. We'd like to go to Portugal and stock up on wine (vinho verde is a type of white wine I like and it is not readily available here, so it's an excuse to go to Portugal and buy it there).
That's it from me. Sorry it was a bit hurried and rambling but I want to get those flipping curtains done today.
Have a good week all of you,
