Up here in Blandford, we are experiencing a small heat wave, it is not going to last long, by Monday we will be back down to 70 degrees. Thank goodness because between yesterday and today, I am wiped, I feel achy and I have the worst headache. I don’t want to post about my weariness, aches and pains so I decided to take a few pictures to cheer myself up, nothing like beautiful colors to brighten your day, I say.
You receive a gift that is bittersweet and makes you nostalgic. What is it?
Any gift that represents something of South of France, specifically the area near Istres and Carro, that region holds a lot of wonderful memories for myself and my little sister. Our cousin Martine would take us into her household along with her little sister and brother, our cousins as well and we would have the best time at the beach and at the pool. Her husband would invite his business colleagues over Friday nights for dinner and drinks. She would make us all kinds of delectable goodies and special meals. One of my favorite gifts was given to me by Martine, my infamous Rubik's cube for my thirteenth birthday, so as I have laid out, anything that brings back the essence of that region, sprigs of lavender, rosemary, pieces of limestone anything to do with wild scrub grass and sun, fields of wild herbs, those would evoke nostalgic feelings instantaneously.
