This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.

Flower Boy

It is Winter, the flower stands are doing a good business.
It is hard to get out of bed in the mornings, wait until the heat warms things up !
The walks in the park are a bit shorter, hot tea and cookies are the afternoon routine with someone napping, wrapped in his blanket. .. he had a busy day, picking out flowers.

Where am I ?

Can you guess where this is ?
Wouldn't you like to be there ? Perhaps on the way to the cafe for coffee ?

I want to live in a hotel.

This is the Mio Buenos Aires Boutique Hotel.
I want to stay there .. perhaps even live there.
We walk by almost every day , we watched the old French style building gutted, then rebuilt into this fabulous hotel.
Notice the front door ? Two stories high .. takes a pretty tall doorman ..
Look at the website, tell me if you also want that bathtub.
Yes, I have to spend a weekend or a week there , we will see about living there.

Pausing ...


While someone figures out what to do about the dead computer in my office.
Hopefully I will be back soon .. with a new computer .. with my 30 million photos all saved on a disc ... or else.

Wanderlust

I am getting wanderlust again.
Should we go on a long trip, Oops...can't , dog can't fly .. or should we move house?
I enjoy looking for and buying new homes.
I like to re-decorate.
I love to take something old and tired and make it something old and wonderful.
When I walk around the neighborhood, I see homes that I want.
One is on a park. I want the apartment for the view.. for the greenery .. for the (hopefully) quiet.
It would be like living in the trees, a glass treehouse.
I have to look into this .. if I have to go smaller I will.
The view and the park make up for any rooms lost within.
Yes, I have to start working on this ..

Adele !





Where have I been ? Well, we know where but how could I miss this ? I am too deeply entrenched in the land of Tango, obviously ... Do you love her ? I do ...

May Day


      O, THE month of May, the merry month of May,
      So frolic, so gay, and so green, so green, so green!
      O, and then did I unto my true love say,
      Sweet Peg, thou shalt be my Summer's Queen.
      Now the nightingale, the pretty nightingale,
      The sweetest singer in all the forest quire,
      Entreats thee, sweet Peggy, to hear thy true love's tale:
      Lo, yonder she sitteth, her breast against a brier.
      But O, I spy the cuckoo, the cuckoo, the cuckoo;
      See where she sitteth; come away, my joy:
      Come away, I prithee, I do not like the cuckoo
      Should sing where my Peggy and I kiss and toy.
      O, the month of May, the merry month of May,
      So frolic, so gay, and so green, so green, so green;
      And then did I unto my true love say,
      Sweet Peg, thou shalt be my Summer's Queen.
