Project 365, Week 9

In spite of good intentions, I still missed a photo this week for Project 365. But I've thrown in two for Saturday so I still have seven.

Last Sunday after our service we celebrated February birthdays with empanadas and cake. The birthday boys look ready to dig in, don't they? We also watched videos from the summer camp they'd been to the week before.
This is a repeat from Monday but I wanted to make sure EVERYONE saw what a great job my hubby did on the bookshelf unit for the living room :-)  I have more photos on Monday's post.
[Still haven't finished the study/sewing room so no AFTER photos of that yet. But they're coming. Promise!]

Our friends arrive from the U.S.!
Leaving behind about 10" of snow in Michigan, they are enjoying the end of summer in Argentina. We're actually having perfect weather right now: in the high 70s/low 80s during the day and cooling down into the low 60s at night. I'm SOOOOOO GLAD the really hot weather we'd been having didn't stick around for their arrival!

As we were leaving one morning I noticed my morning glories are back! And they're all mixed in with the jasmine and roses, creating a little red, white and blue theme.
A pleasant afternoon on the back patio, getting some reading done.
Wally celebrated his birthday Saturday by taking us out to breakfast (I know, should have been the other way around but he's a giving kind of guy).
Breakfast is usually just some form of bread and coffee here. We had quite the spread, as you can see. The plate of meats and cheeses would normally be eaten in the afternoon, and I guess we attracted a bit of attention by having it in the morning. Saturday evening when we went out to dinner to a different place, another customer recognized us as the people who had had the ginormous breakfast at Vitto's. LOL

My Spanish tutor's dog had puppies a month ago and they are so adorable!
I really hope their mama wasn't too sick last night after scarfing down the whole plate of No Bake cookies I took over for the humans. Silly dog. I guess females of all species like chocolate.

Looks like Argentina is agreeing with K. and W.! Enjoy the visit!

My dog has eaten so much chocolate in his 12 years...a lead stomach!

That IS perfect weather and I thought the "big" breakfast was funny. Silly Americans!

Enjoy your week with good friends.

He did such a nice job on the bookcases. Glad you are having fun with friends and they get to enjoy the warmth! You can tell them that the temp in Michigan is above freezing today - 34 degrees, but we got another batch of snow Friday.
Glad to hear you are still making no bake cookies!

Dena said...

What absolutely BEAUTIFUL bookshelves! Oh wow!

I'm sure if your friends are like us, they are so tired of the cold and snow that they would have even appreciated the hot weather. :)

Cute puppy!!

Cute puppy! I always think I want one, & then I remember that they require actual work & such.

I love no bake cookies - can't blame mama for eating them!

So, how did camp go?

I am moved to tears thinking/seeing the depth of friendship and commitment that took W & K to visit you. He is following through on his words in his commissioning message.
Happy Birthday, Wally! You can't object to the BD person's wishes, right? Yummy and fun!

Your array of flowers is glorious!

Love that you have a hammock, only wish I could be in it.

I had so many things I wanted to say, but I am completely distracted by the sweet, adorable, precious puppy face!
