Home

Home after 4 weeks away before Christmas and after.  Off again soon, maybe next week for a few more weeks or 3.
Upon our arrival home the next door neighbour passed my husband and myself some chocolates for being lovely neighbours - what a wonderful gesture.  There certainly are some lovely people in this world.
Booster shot today for Covid-19.

I do hope you are well and had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
The holiday for us was peaceful and relaxing.  Photos and posts later.
I really missed you all and often wondered if everyone was and is alright.
Take care,
Margaret.

Roses from my garden upon returning to home.

  1. Happy New Year!
    You are a lucky lady. Always traveling. :)
    Those roses are so beautiful. Someone is taking care of your garden when you are away, right?

    1. Happy New Year to you too Catarina.
      Best take advantage of the summer weather to travel on the Island.
      Yes, youngest son lives at home so he waters the garden and mows the lawns...other wise we would have to have someone attend those things whilst away.

    1. Thank you Irma though we will be off again next week I presume. Lovely to go whilst the weather is warm than go in the winter even though it's mild in our winter there isn't anyone about much, so we usually stay home for winter these days.
      Yes, good to get the booster and it's pleasing you have had yours too.

  37. Hello Margaret
    You don't even know how much I miss such pictures, flowers and colorful world. For me, it's like winter, because gray, rain and a sad landscape around me dominate.
    I am waiting for spring and the joy that I hope will return with the new season.
    Greetings :)
