too long to be away from my computer..
but did manage to get this gorgeous sunset..
which won an AC award on WeatherUnderground
Today, was a beautiful hot 95 degree sunshiny day..
so my sis Di brought me much needed tables and chairs..
(surplus from her home which is on the market)..
my brother and nephew came..
his daughter Jen and hubby Steve came to lend a hand..
as did Aaron (Di's son) my other nephew..
how wonderful to have impromptu FAMILY reunions..
accomplished with a simple phone call..
nope.. no pics of that..
but am sharing pics from a dear friend who is across the big pond..
in Greece..

Blue Monday
Mellow Yellow Monday


  1. I know that moving seems to be a never-ending chore. How wonderful that you can take a break and drool over these pictures. Happy Blue Monday, Loui.

  2. Oh, I want to go back!! Was there in 97 for 9 days (in Athens, and one of the islands). Serendipitously, we went today to a Greek day in our area, and had Lamb, rice, and salad, and baklava. Grape leaves would have been included if we had had enough cash with us:)

  3. What a wonderful collection of photos! Your award-winning sunset is indeed Gorgeous and perfect for Blue Monday!

  4. Beautiful photos.

    My blues are here and here.

  5. Congrats on the AC! The picture is beautiful and I must go see it on WU! Loved the pictures from Greece!!

  6. Beautiful captures. Visiting from Blue Monday.

    My BLUE.
    Have a great week ahead!


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
