Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder ... (Henri David Thoreau)

Mooie foto's, Sandra!! I like your tablecloth and you're gloves!
The picture of the table for the bbq with the twins (are they twins?) at the other end of the table is funny and cute!!

Aledys: I bought them at Blokker. They were the last ones at the store. I received their folder in the previous day, but it seems I arrived late as usual :-)) The Dutch are so quickly when there are discounts going on. :-))

Margarida: Tambem sao os meus favoritos, o ninho e a citacao. Beijos!! :-))

Blokker? I don't think I saw them here where I live, but then, I wasn't probably looking.
I just noticed that I wrote, "you're gloves", guess it was the automatic keyboard from my mobile that chooses words for me! Grrrr....
Beso!

Presépio no Canal said...

:-)) Don't blame your poor automatic keyboard :-)) It's you, only you :-))) Nevermind, i wrote "quite" instead of "quiet". But now it is fine ;-) Some words are very similar and it's easy to use one instead of the other. ;-)
specially after a Latin lunch or dinner;-)) if you know what I mean :-)) The wine was so lekker ;-))) Must go now...Bjs!
PS: and now it is your turn to say "Don't blame the lunch nad the wine. It's you, only you. No grey cells at all" :-)))

Obrigada, Ana :-) However, o vento, o frio e o cinzento voltaram hoje e vao ficar, pelo menos, uma semana...
Por isso, tivemos que aproveitar enquanto durou ;-)

Este é o início do que chamo "semestre radioso", que compreende a Primavera e o Verão. E embora o trabalho nos leve muitas horas, há sempre maiores possibilidades para bons programas.
Beijinhos e uma Primavera bonita para ti!

Obrigada, Sara! Para ti tambem :-)
Enjoy your Sunday! Por aqui, o frio voltou a atacar...
Beijinhos!!
