Happy Independance Day to our friends across the ocean. Because of this I want to start by showing you a card from the USA which I received yesterday morning. It's from the state of Washington and shows the West Point Lighthouse. I think it is beautiful!
A train called Congressional (I think) and one commemmorating the 1980 Olympics. I love the Norman Rockwell stamp, as he is such a good illustrator. And the arctic fox is beautiful.
I'm going to join the T for Tuesday tea party and I have something with a drink in it to share with you.
We had our last day at the gym on Friday. We stop for the summer. The gym is not air conditioned (or heated) and it is just too hot. (Too Darn Hot - a song by Ella Fitzgerald. Remember that one?)
I go three times a week. We have a nice group of ladies there. This is the gym building and many ladies are just leaving.
This is the whole building:
We have just taken receipt of out new orange shirts.
That Friday, after the session, at 10 a.m. we all went to have breakfast together.
Here we are. The teacher is at the head of the table.
This is the typical Spanish breakfast: coffee and a 'tostada' (toast with olive oil and a sort of tomato sauce, which you spoon onto the bread from the bowl provided.)
What else can I tell you? What have I read? I have just finished one of the Amish romances in between one thing and another. They are usually very sweet and undemanding and free of charge on Kindle.
This one I just finished. It's called The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis:
It's just as well I don't get to see the cover when I buy a book on Kindle. I would never have bought it if I had seen this cover! But the story wasn't bad. I read it in a weekend. It's about a career violinist who rethinks her future after she had to shelter from the storm and had long talks with a young Amish man. It is the first of a series, but I don't see myself reading any more of them. I get the picture. Pleasant nevertheless.
Well, I'd better post this now.
Happy T-Day to all,
(And happy Independance Day)
