Saturday was a glorious day. No workers. I arise early, open the doors and allow Habibi to do his morning check of the property. Kettle on. Coffee .... s t r o n g coffee. Yum. My morning read and rituals. Then, my eyelids feeling heavy, slipping back under the covers and falling asleep for a couple of hours. Relaxation. Feels great. At 11:00 when Kathleen called I was still propped up in bed.
I did get up and get dressed, not because of any external pressure. I just wanted to. K & I arrived after lunch and we spent one of those afternoons which slips by unnoticed until all of a sudden it's 9:00 pm. Such an enjoyable day of deep conversation, laughter, lovely music, a little wine and some good food.
|Eating on the terrace, water dripping in the fountain, music drifting outside in the background, good conversation in the company of dear friends. It all adds up to BLISS.|
Friends ..... such blessings.
Today I slept until noon. I never did get dressed. I read, I putsed, and made a nicho totally by accident. I had no intention, however, when I sat down at the table to jazz up a few images, I just kept going and a nicho appeared. I'll post it tomorrow. Happy Monday. Hope you all have a great week.
