Beautiful Nature.



This morning sky

This morning four o’clock I heard my phone 


And I had pictures and films from my son who is on holidays.
The first film is about the turtle laying her eggs nearby their bedroom.
Afterwards she goes back to sea.

The hotel gardens


Nice palm trees 🌴 and beautiful sea
Mr Maxime  is waiting for his meal! Round face Maxime! wearing granny ‘s shirt 👕 

 I am glad they are taking real holidays and rest.

Beautiful water colour! 💕 💗 💕

Rainbow 🌈 colours

Good morning

 Hello friends!


Today is the beginning of a new week and it will be a difficult week. Tomorrow we will have a big strike, the second big one since the beginning of the year, no trains, electricity and gaz companies, gasoline ⛽️ companies we may have queues to get gasoline these days … I will just use my car to go food shopping this week. Mr L has got gasoline yesterday to be able to work. 


Yesterday I ordered some things I needed to make «  a Rainbow cake » I always wanted to make one and I found a recipe. I will practice for Maxime ´s future Birthday cakes. I decided to give some of the cakes I’ll bake to my neighbour’s. 

We wanted to work a little in the garden, but it was too cold, only Mr L went to take the dog for a short walk and we gave food to the birds.


We found a new bird feeder

I found 142 wool skein when emptying my mother’s flat. Beautiful colours, but I don’t know what to do with them… try to sell them I think, they are for tapestry.



This is the picture of the rainbow cake, I hope I can make it? I will have a try…

Mr L will help me clean the house today and next week I will have a rest and do things I like to do!
Now the internet is very quick I am glad it’s installed after 4 or 5 attempts! I can upload pictures in a second! Before it took 15 mn for about four pictures! What a change!

A story and a souvenir







Today I went to look at my Facebook and I saw a picture of Kyoto under the snow ( from places to see before you die) and it reminded me of my stays in Japan and how lucky I am to have visited the country!
My first stay was at 18 when I met a Japanese girl as we were “Au Pairs” in England. We became friends and she stayed in France for some months before going back to her country. Then we decided we will meet again and I worked two years during my  holidays in a bank and then could pay my plane fare to Japan.
She took me ( her name is Masako) to kyoto and I fall in love with the place!  I stayed two months in Tokyo.
Then  for my 60 th Birthday I received a plane ticket to go to Japan by myself I stayed with a family this time in Kyoto and the third time we went together with my husband. My two children also stayed in Japan 🇯🇵 for a road tour. The whole family went to Japan and I am glad my children had the opportunity to visit such a beautiful country!
Now Masako is married and has two children like me a girl and a boy. This is a very good souvenir!

This and That …


We all are looking for Spring and Easter 🐣 
This is a piece I found at my mother’s it was my eggcup, I must have had it for Easter.

This is the blue crochet blanket I am working on at the moment. We need blankets to lower the heating bill lol 😆 
 


Even  Bandit has its blanket

The pink one is for my mother.
I made a mistake and this is today the men for the fibre optic come. Doors are open, so no heating on and these poor guys are digging for four hours now, I don’t know if they will succeed!



There will be a mess in the house because it’s all muddy 

 But we will see.

I have been baking chocolate chips cookies and Lintzer slices using my home made strawberry jam while waiting for them to finish, but I think they’ll spend the day. They made a big hole by now , disappearing in the hole lol 😆.it is very stressing ! I just gave them hot coffee and freshly baked cookies.

We will see what happens, to be continued…


Latest news: they made it! The optic fibre is done outside after five attempts! The inside will be tomorrow. OUF! It’s nearly finished. They have worked from 8 AM to 6 PM!

Working hard on our project.

Yesterday, I found these two outside solar lamps   That o will use for our garden project. Some more roses coming out We must get some black...
