the weekend

Hello, hello and thank you all for the lovely wishes for a tranquil weekend.
Just a couple of hours before the weekend is over, I'm here to report that it was a good one.
Lots of playdates and coffee dates with friends from here and a most welcome visit from good friends from the city (well, they weren't visiting us; they just happen to come from the village nearby and they were here for the weekend - a true blessing!)
On a different note, the weather has been grey since we got here, nine days ago; only a couple of hours of sunshine on Friday. Fog, humidity, rain ...
In case you're wondering why this sudden interest in the weather, I'll tell you why: I'm not taking any photos! No inspiration at all! The light is horrible! And it's not like that everywhere; no, no. Back in the city they've been having lots and lots of sunshine! Ah, well, but they don't have a river at their doorstep, do they?
Hope you all have a good week!

I like your tableau - is it edible?
A good weekend can make the following week so much more enjoyable. I hope the weather cheers up for you. It's grey and drizzly here, too, with heavy rain tonight.

No, it's not edible, although the blocks are made of corn.

Take grey photos! I love grey! I am quite sporadic in how much I use my journals-at the moment it is quite a lot but sometimes hardly at all-so don't worry-just use it when you feel the need! Have a great week!

δεν βγάζεις φωτό γιατι δεν έχεις τη νέα σου μηχανή! θα σου τα στείλω με ACS είναι χαζό να περιμένω πότε θα βρεθούμε! στείλε μου την ακριβή σου διεύθυνση.
οι γείτονες ήρθαν στα΄Ρύζια; ήρθε και ο Χρήστος; σου έλεγα στην αρχή οτι θα περάσεις ωραία μόνη με το γιο σου ένα χειμών, αλλά τώρα το παίρνω πίσω. είναι πολύ κουραστικό να ασχολείσαι αποκλειστικά με το παιδί, χωρίς διάλειμμα, χωρίς να έχεις χρόνο για σένα. ο επαμεινώνδας είναι μωρό και τις μέρες που λείπει ο Τεο ταξίδι, νιώθω πολύ κουρασμένη, χωρίς να κάνω κάτι περισσότερο ή λιγότερο, απλά και μόνο με τη σκέψη οτι είμαι μόνη ότι κι αν συμβεί.

We had that awful rain for what felt like weeks too, hasn't it been horrid? So pleased you managed to enjoy a tranquil weekend though and caught up with friends.
