Lindo...

...I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to post this week...thank God for our little town's internet cafe...we arrived yesterday...the weather has been amazing...there's alot of work to be done...but it's worth it....especially when I wake up in the morning and see this.... ...we got on the boat and came, my angel girl, the dog and the cat...went to the house, unloaded the car, I swear I thought I heard a sigh of relief from it...afterwards we went to town to get some food...we saw friends...cousins....cousins....and more cousins...did some shopping...went to lunch...

...there's our favorite restaurant that we go to every time we're here...we have celebrated anniversaries....ate fish soup after my mother's funeral...met good friends for dinner...went on date nights...

...the owner is this "mom" looking lady who does all the cooking...she's a cheerful woman always ready to give you the biggest hug and make you feel comfortable as if you had gone to her own house...that's why the restaurant looks like our favorite aunt's kitchen....take a look at this warm environment...

...the whole place is full of antiques, she has collected old adds from old cafes that are now closed...
...she makes all the sweets by herself, and keeps them in jars...

...one of the cozy corners of the restaurant with treats for Easter....
...the smells that come from the kitchen are amazing...
...here, there are some old school pictures...in one of them I found my dad when he was in fifth grade...their teacher was a priest...
...it's the season of lillies...tomorrow I'm planning to go by the river and cut some for the house....I'm praying that I don't see any snakes...
...on our way back home, we saw these guys taking their afternoon bath...
...and these, sun bathing...
...my little lady is sitting at her favorite spot, feeling on top of the world...
...as time went by without looking at the clock...I looked outside my kitchen window and saw that there was a full moon...
...it was a beautiful evening...peaceful...quite...and full of good thoughts...

....right now, the music at the internet cafe is smooth...they have lit little candles...I think I'm going to order a glass of wine...I'm starting to realize that I'm on vacation and it feels good....
