Rose-Coloured Weekend

I'm usually bad about remembering to take my camera with me, especially if I'm just going to be going out round my neighbourhood. However, I made a special effort to photograph this lovely rose before it's gone for good. It's the only one on this rose bush, and it's gigantic in comparison to the plant. 

The other day I could have kicked myself for forgetting to take even my phone when I went out to get a few necessities. As you know, there are still bullfights going on. On my way to the shop I saw a little one-seater car, which is made by Renault and goes by the name of Twizy. It was the first time I'd seen one up close. One of my great-nieces has a battery-operated car that is almost as big as the Twizy, and most motorcycles would be bigger than it!
This is one of the two aprons I got yesterday. Three of us met up for lunch again (meatballs on the menu), because Chris and I were going to a crafts show at the house of some of my students afterwards . The mother and a friend of hers have really worked hard to produce some lovely and original things. I bought another apron too, which is fancier to this one's classical look and Chris also bought two. Chris has another fair on Tuesday, so she's going to take aprons and some other small items with her to sell. I need to send Inma a WhatsApp to say she doesn't have to rush to put prices on things as Chris won't pick the things up from my place until Tuesday morning. Here's their page on facebook.
I think the two beez might be hyphenated like this: two-beez (if the link doesn't work).

Fortunately for us, yesterday was a fantastic day - not too hot. That's going to change rapidly though. I always think about these lyrics ' Hot town, Summer in the city, back of my neck getting dirty and gritty.' Hope everyone is able to stay cool and at the same time have a good week.


  1. It is hot and humid here. The humidity is what gets to me. The apron is GREAT! It really is a classic look - like 1950s even. Very nice. I will check out the link. I've not heard of a Twizy and will have to look that one up, too. I wish you a good week, Brenda, and hope the weather will still be good!

  2. Good morning, Brenda! The rose is so beautiful! I can't get over how big it is! I love the apron. My daughter bought me an apron a few years ago for Mother's Day and my good friend made me one last year. Now my eyes go right to aprons when I am in the store. The weather here in Michigan is so beautiful. I today it is supposed to be in the high 70's and sunny! So far we have had a very cool summer. Have a great weekend!
