26 August 2010

looking back...










Hope you had a wonderful month. Ours was filled with family, ice cream (cherry yogurt with dark chocolate chunks... OMG!...), midnight fishing on the beach, 10 km a day (and sometimes 20 - depending on how much ice cream we had eaten.) walks with my dear sister-in-law, rain, sweaters, and breakfast with a view.... (and, yes, I´m still the reigning parcheesi champion of THE WORLD.)

It´s hard not to feel just a little depressed now that it´s over...

I´m meeting this lovely lady tomorrow so that should brighten my spirits.

Sending you a big hug hello!

So glad you are back here! It looks like it was truly a fantastic month. The way August should be. Your photos tell a great story. Is it really almost Fall... nooooooo! I can look at your beach photos and dream of Summer for a long time.

Welcome back! The photos are beautiful. I particularly like the rocks and the sky. The rocks almost appear to be floating.

laméditerraine said...

Wow Jane those pictures are beautiful.
You're gonna miss the Basque Country when you move to Madrid...I mean, Madrid is awesome, but what about that simplicity and that beauty you always show us on your photos?
I'm more in love with my country since you showed it to me :)

AG Ambroult said...

Jane! It's been a while and wow i had bo idea what 8've been missing. I looked back on the last few posts--AMAZING! Wow, your pictures are absolutely breathtaking. The bullfight, the scenery, the food...but the dog and your husband takes the cake. Mostly because it's out little secret ;)

wood & wool stool said...

looking back on a wonderful august month is great!

first monday home alone feels a little strange. i'm still homesick thinking about the lovely time we had in greece, but everyone's back to work and school again and i can do whatever i want today :)

Cate said...

oh, jane! so many goodies here. the old man and his boat. love. and now, of course, we all want a teensy beensy cute-muffin puppy just like that one that seems to be YOURS?!?!?!?!?

but, predictably, it's the mention of the raspberry frozen yogurt with dark chocolate chunks that has me running to the kitchen. hmm. inspiration for the week.

what's up with CV? did i miss anything?

Cabrizette said...

Yes, we don't want that it's over... but happy to read you again !!! Bises

Joyce said...

Hi Jane! I can't wait to hear you adventures as the move begins. As always great photos. I love the sweet faces in the last photo. Is this your son and a new puppy? Love to you my friend. xo

Beautiful shots! Happy September!

life in yonder said...

Perhaps I have left a comment before...I can't remember. But I read you post again and it is so beautiful. The story you tell with you photos, the feeling or mood that they convey...or perhaps that's all my interpretation. Doesn't matter. Beautiful.

I knew a girl who was blue. So she painted her world pink. xoxo
