Slowing down.....because it's monday

You might have heard before that things can be slow sometimes here in Andalucia. Last friday, I was waiting for a transporter to pick up my faulty camera and send it to Canon service department in Madrid. Around 8 pm, I suddenly realized nobody came but luckily Canon called this morning to apologize about this incident and that by all means the transportista will pass by this afternoon or...evening, meaning I had to cancel a visit in Granada.
So today, I'm posting this picture just as a reminder, that in spite of mondays and projects, it's always good to steal time to the agenda and literally venture through the meadows to catch at least five minutes of sunshine.
In the end, nothing beats the feeling of following one's own rhythm....
Happy slow monday to you !

I'll be doing a bit of slow
gardening today ... . just enough to
get my hands covered in dirt and
remind me it's truly spring
(even if it's still a bit cold!)

Life is too short and precious not to steal time out for the meadows at times.

Thank you for the photo - memories flood in of my own goats in Ireland. I adored them!

How wonderful that they called you to apologize. That is quite novel :-) I love your pictures and your words go along so well with them. It is a beautiful morning here and all is well.

And Happy Slow Monday to you too Lala! I see spring has sprung for you...tres jolie!
I wish sometimes that life was a bit slower for me...with kids it is challenging.
Have a great week,
Nathalie

Lala,

I am soooo sad and soooo angry about the fact that you still are waiting on your pillow.

I've just talked to Elizabeth and let her understand that fact that I am disappointed about her.

She told me.... the pillow leave Sweden yesterday :((

I think it's so embarrassing and will compensate you in any other way if it's doesn't work with Design by E and Elisabeth!

I'm sorry sorry, but now I'm 'online'.
