Contrary to previous weeks, I have MORE than my allotted seven photos for this week's Project 365. Sorry, but a few days there were just too many and I was unable to choose only one.
We were in Sta. Rosa this week, for a belated anniversary getaway (the anniversary was in May). The day we arrived it was in the 70s and absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed a couple of days like that and then it turned COLD. Brrrrrr! Dropped about 30-40 degrees and stayed there. Winter had finally arrived!
But back to the beginning. Last Sunday we took a long walk around Belgrano and saw these flowers. I thought it was interesting that there were no leaves on this bush but scads of lovely pink blossoms.
Despite the frigid temperatures, we still took long walks every day, paying particular attention to the architecture of the homes we passed. We were struck by how out-of-place this home looked -- not at all what you'd expect to find here.
We snapped this photo because we really like the variegated roof tiles...always on the lookout for ideas we can incorporate should we end up building our own house.
Our last full day of vacation was spent hunkered down inside due to the constant precipitation outside. We woke to snow mixed with rain, then rain, back to snow...all day it was back and forth with some sleet thrown in on occasion. I actually didn't take a photo that day. We played with the embroidery function on my sewing machine, as Ivan figured out how to operate the system. I read a very funny kid's book I'd downloaded for free from amazon (Milrose Munce and the Den of Professional Help). But on the way home Friday we stopped to snap photos of the snow on the sierras.
Saturday was so cold and parents were concerned about the kids being outside all day at the soccer tournament so plans were changed -- and they went bowling instead!
