Counting the sheep...counting my blessings

I was much too lazy yesterday to make my way to blogging land. In fact I wish I were still there in the countryside near Nigüelas, watching the sheep enjoy their lunch of fresh herbs. There is something so peaceful about it.

In the end, we did make it to Gym's cortijo as on sunday, the weather was all summery again. The plants had grown and are now fully exuberant


we had a little tea party with homemade apple pie and chocolate browniesMonchéri looked like a romantic shepherd
Little Lucas and Ivo played with swords in the jungle
but also had a good deal of chocolate brownies
it was nice to while away the hours chatting and we made the promise to get together more often
can the good alchemy of friendship be explained ?
I'm actually counting my blessings to be able to share these precious moments
because at the end of day, the joy and the laughters still echo in our heart.

My lovelies, my dear readers I wish you a very happy start of the week.

Also I would like to thank all of you who follow my little blog. I'm desperately a lazy girl but I promise to visit you sometime. I already feel bad not to visit my fellow bloggers in a consistent way !

Lovely photos! I remember with fondness the super hero/warrior phase my own sons went through. Swashbucklers with brownies....too cute!

Friendship is an amazing gift.

Hi! You have left me with a lovely lethargic feeling, I can smell the countryside and feel the heat!
I left a message yesterday to say that I have tagged you! I hope you don't mind! It is an easy one to do, see my yesterdays post. Have fun!

Your posting was delightful. The photographs illustrated the story of your afternoon perfectly!

Thank you for sharing your charming life.

Oh! Thank you! !y Gracias! I am suddenly nostalgic for childhood memories. For two years my father (a military pilot) was in Spain and we were not on American bases but at a Spainish base and so I attended Puerta Palma in Badajoz with my sister. Luckily my parents were interested in experienceing as much as possible and we traveled all over Extremadura and Anadalucia. !I even danced at La Ferria in Sevilla one year! Sadly I have lost my Spanish but my secret wish is to take my children to live there for a year or two so we can all learn together.
