Cactus Monday (#46)

This is the box of cactus candies I bought on board of the ferry yesterday (the boot.....LOL). I love Läkerol candies (the eucalyptus ones) but hadn't seen these before. I have no idea what a cactus tasts like (although I always drink cactus juice in Mexico and have tasted cactus figgs) , but these are delicious. We are back from our trip to Sweden. I still have to unpack. We came home yesterday evening and after a Chinese take out dinner I finally was surfing the net again after 10 days! I read all my comments and mail, visited all your blogs and looked at everything I have been missing. It will take me a while to comment on everything....... So please be patient. Looked at the wonderful snailmail that was waiting for me upon arrival, which I will show Thursday! Today I will sort out all my pictures and will try to put them on the internet so my family can see them and download the ones they want . I will post some pictures of my holiday later today or tomorrow. We have had a wonderful time! Two days of rain, and the rest gorgeous summer weather. Sjimmie is so happy we are back. He didn't show himself for 10 days, because of the dog (Diesel) my friends (who stayed in our house) had with them...... The dogs and other cats adjusted well and they enjoyed all the attention they got from Miriam and Frans. Koekie and Droppie took over his basket and Diesel laid in front of it......... Hope you are all doing ok and are enjoying a Happy Cactus Monday!
