When I got back from Egypt yesterday this beautiful card was waiting for me!
Sjimmie in Egypt!
Lolo you always find the most appropriate cards and gifts for me!
I think he wished he could have traveled in our suitcase with us........
Our dear friends Miriam and Frans took good care of our house and cats, but Sjimmie doesn't like their dog Diesel so he was out most of the time.
Once inside and sure the dog was gone he gulped in a bowl of food in no time.
After that he relaxed and felt king of his castle again.
I know he is so happy we are back.
Miriam left me a card and it was a Sjimmie as well from the same artist as Lo's card!
Well how coincidental was that!
They are such beauties!
The cards are by Bug Art and the artist is Jane Crowther.
I can just look at them over and over again.
With Lolo's card came a gorgeous bookmark. 3D and with wonderful hummingbirds that seem to flutter......
Unfortunately you can't see it on the picture, but believe me it is awesome!
Thanks Lo for these thoughtful gifts!
I am having trouble today uploading pictures to blogger, but here are a few shots from my holiday. In random order..................
A sunflower under the palmtrees
The kids having fun together
I read 2 books this holiday!!!!!!
No internet and no art making. Well for 8 days I loved it !
One night we took the bus to Hurghada and were dropped at a touristic marina.
We took a taxi to the centre where we had a nice Arabic dinner and we walked back through some real local streets.
I just love to take pictures of all those local shops.
A hotel shot again, early in the morning before the whole hi-di-ho startedLook who came for a visit...................
We spent our time at the beach. The swimming pools were close and the kids knew where to find us.
And yes I did the half pipe and all the slides as well ;)
I had to cry twice this holiday...........
In the aircraft when I saw Hachi (for the 2nd time)
and when I read KJ's BEAUTIFUL book on the beach.
(please note my bookmark also ;))
My husband cried the same tears for the same reasons.......
If you haven't seen the movie yet, you have missed something!
And if you haven't read the book, order it here!
A nap at the beach. And last but not least ........ Look at this special award I got from my best friend Emily !
It is good to be back home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had a good time! Lovely weather (between 30 and 40 degrees Celsius) I guess that is between 86 and 104 F.
My kind of weather.
We had a week in which we relaxed and enjoyed each others company.
Have to get back on my diet again.........
I am thankful we had such a good time, and that we arrived safely home again as 61 Dutch passengers didn't...........
I am thankful to be home again with all my beloved animals around me.
Things are back to normal. It is still (too) cold here, but everything is so beautiful green.
I have to catch up with everything and everybody, but at the same time I am busy preparing a mandala workshop for Saturday, so please be patient with me.......
Hope you have a lot to be thankful for!
Happy Thankful Thursday!
