Just a little something to make you smile

Found this on the photowalk too. It's bright, casual, summery feel made me smile. I hope it makes you smile too.

I just got back from the kids' end of the year party for their afternoon program (yes, it's an end of the school year thing, yes, it's nearly August, no, I don't know why they wait this long) and still have a ton of laundry packing to do before we fly to the States tomorrow night so this week's Ruby Tuesday is an in and out stealth post. I apologize in advance if I don't get around to see your blogs, and if you see me hanging out online anywhere tomorrow boot my butt off the computer and tell me to get back to my packing already! After that it's a twelve hour transatlantic flight, then a two hour hop, then two more hours by car, after which we will hopefully arrive, somewhat the worse for wear, at my parents' house in New Hampshire for a month of fun in the (damn well better be) sun (and some work for me along the way, but hopefully not too much).

Catch you on the flip side!

I'm smiling, Robin. ;-)

I sure hope the weather improves as it has been very wet in New England, Ontario and Quebec. I DO hope you are packing some dry weather.

Yes, you do need a raincoat in this part of the world.

Love the colors of the towel and that great Mediterranean blue in the back.

Flea said...

I LOVE the pot. Have a great time in NH!

Felisol said...

Have a wonderful American holiday.
I always admire the distinct colors in your pictures, be they red or blue.
I'll check if they are the same in NY, or if the Israeli light is so special.
Be blessed.
Don't spoil your fun with too much work.

My mom had a set of those pots - she bought them abroad - I'm not sure was it Moscow or Bucharest - they made our kitchen the brightest in the neighborhood! Really made me smile!

A whimsical flowerpot enlivens the setting. With the usual sea of green in nature, the ruby pot highlights the green a bit better. ..

You have a safe and delightful trip! I need to talk to your parents about moving closer to Texas. Sure would be fun to cross paths with you some day.

Hi Robin, have a wonderful trip, hope you get lots of sun. Your photos are always colorful, love this one and that looks suspiciously like a passion fruit vine. :))

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I'm catching up now that I'm back and even if you hadn't made that comment about the picture making me smile, it's so cheery and happy that I couldn't help myself.

Hope the travels went well. I can't believe how much closer we now are -- but still aren't close enough to meet!
