Pascoa is on the right and Surprise is on the left. They look like twins .. Of course up close you can see who mummy is.
The grandchildren are growing up so fast. They dont have much time to ride anymore. I am hoping that during the holidays they will all get some excercise - Sheilah and her baby Rosie.. Are up at the big farm.
My flowers are looking good. The rose bushes have lots of blooms. Unfortunately lots got damaged by the heavy rain this last tuesday.
Like most of us who have gardens. There is so much to do. This afternoon I will be dead heading my roses, and trimming back some plants. Can't really complain about the rain, as I have not had to water. The summer will be here soon enough.
While away in Switzerland. I put on some extra pounds. Trying to get some of it off. Seems the older we get the more difficult it becomes. So, working in the garden today and over the weekend.. i should at least get rid of some of the excess lbs.
A few days ago. One of the gentlemen in the village , said good morning to me . We talked about the weather and village matters and so on. He said to me.." you are looking well".. "thank you , " I replied.. he then said" ah! but you have put a little weight on"- To this I just laughed.. and replied
"getting older".. This certain gentleman, has a larger than larger pot belly..
It always amazes me how men , mention weight, but omit to mention their own. !!!!
I had a giggle to myself .
Life here at Quintinha das Rosas.. is slowly getting back to normal.
I am waiting for the delivery of the roof tiles and the wood , in order that Pedro can start work putting on the roof of my store room. Some excitement . I can't wait to get it finished.
Wishing you all a very happy weekend .. val
