Cats and the city...

Hi everyone!... sorry for the video that you could not be able to see... It is supposedly fixed right now, so please if you have any problems let me know and I will see what I can do.

So spring is turning into a hot summer!, we are having already temperatures more than above the normal spring ones!. We had to assemble the fan already!.

We had a great weekend, just some sun at the terrace, french toast in the morning with the always welcomed neighbours and we went over to do some walking looking for chairs for the house... and we finally agreed and we are getting new chairs!!! (More on this subject soon)

We are getting ready to go for the wedding at Miami, it is going to be a crazy week, so I guess that I will updating this blog with a lot of juicy stuff... stay tuned!

John, I am still thinking about the flower (it is really difficult to decide)

Love u all, have a good week.

This one goes in spanish too...

Algo curioso pasó en los intervalos de post Guerra (Guerra Mundial I y II), períodos en los cuales aparecen representadas dos de mis preciadas heroinas de la literatura, me refiero a Lady Brett Ashley y a Holly Golightly, ciudadanas de Europa y Nueva York , habitantes de Fiesta! Y Desayuno en Tiffany’s, novelas de Hemingway y Capote respectivamente. Estrellas que alumbran el oscuro paisaje de la época, con sus espiritus libres… entonces mi homenaje a ellas y la invitación a ustedes, para que las conozcan y se embriaguen con ellas en fondas españolas o desayunen con resaca en Tiffany’s.

Something curious happened in the post war (World War I and II) periods, two of my favorites heroines in literature’s are represented, I’m referring to Lady Brett Ashley and Holly Golightly, citizens of Europe and New York, habitants of The Sun also rises and Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hemingway and Capote’s novels respectively. Stars that illuminates the darkest picture of the epoch with their free spirits…then my tribute to them and the invitation to you, for you can meet them and go get drunk to a Spanish bar with them or get breakfast at Tiffany’s with a soft hang over…

Lunch at the terrace

Sunny Sunday, perfect for an improvised parrillada for us: just some vegetables and ojo de bife steaks...

Later on, I tried to prepare my first blueberry muffins:

the dough

the streusel

the product finito!... big muffins!

And I would like to show you some of the new terrace's babies!...

My new gorgeus cactus: Mammillaria duweii (it is the first time that a cactus blooms in my terrace!!)

My old companion the savage Alstroemeria psittacina, picked long ago at the monte in Córdoba, reproduced since then by its own resources...

This is the season of this intoxicating smelling flower, all the flower shops around sell them, and there is no way that I don't get captured by them

My vine, which its ephemeral flowers delights us with their perfume at the begginning of spring...

Another vine that has small but not less charmfull flowers...
