My August, part two

And following, the rest of the holidays…
To finish our frenchy tour, we went to the flea market and antiques at Barjac, to “chiner” something (we finally bought several items for our garden and a lovely bottle of the famous Saint-Raphaël aperitif). And because the pottery fair at Anduze wasn’t far away, we stop to have a quick glance…

Y a continuación, el resto de mis vacaciones…
Para acabar el tour francés, fuimos al mercado de antigüedades y rastro de Barjac, para ver si encontrábamos alguna ganga (finalmente compramos unas cosillas para el jardín y una preciosa botella del famoso aperitivo Saint-Raphaël). Y como la feria de cerámica de Anduze no quedaba lejos, pues nos acercamos a echar una ojeada…

We also spent some days at our country home at La Segarra, with my sweet nephews (how can I love them so much?!) enjoying the family dinners, the walks at the sunset... And we made some day trips to discover nice places around…

También pasamos unos días en nuestra casa del campo, con mis preciosos sobrinos (no sé cómo los puedo querer tanto!) disfrutando de las comidas familiares, de los paseos a la puesta del sol… Y también hicimos algunos salidas para conocer la zona…

But if I have to define the “leif-motiv” of my August, definitely were animals! I found three kittens at my garden (and later I found her dead mommy!) and an owl at my country garden (everybody says it is a sing of good luck. We’ll see…). Yeah! It was a good month…

Pero si tengo que definir el “Leif-motiv” de mi agosto, sin duda son ¡los animales! Encontré tres gatitos en el jardín de casa (y después a la madre muerta) y una lechuza preciosa en la casa del campo (y todo el mundo dice que nos dará mucha suerte. Ya veremos…). Debo decir que ha sido un buen mes…

I wish you a super nice week!
¡Que tengas una feliz semana!

A pesar de los mosquitos, la crisis y el tremendo calor, he tenido un buen agosto. ¡Espero que tú también!
