The Weekend...

... was partly spent walking five long, long hours, mostly through tracks meant for sheep, sometimes on the sides of mountains so steep that if you had the misfortune to fall, you'd be landing a few dozen kilometers down at the bottom, bloody and broken and dead quite possibly.

We looked at rocks.
We looked at dried plants.

At one point we found ourselves at our destination: a man-made cave that was so uninteresting I took no photos. We had lunch, some members of our group began singing snatches of opera. It was too much for me, I went down to pee.

On the way back, we looked at even more dried plants.We heard the clanging of the bells of grazing sheep.We found bones scattered in a field, and spent a good few minutes reconstructing the skeleton.
We went home.

What can I say, my party-happy days are seriously over.

But you didn't say...did you enjoy it? ;-) I dunno...walking for 5 hours to look at dried plants and a man-made cave just doesn't appeal to me. But then, you know what a hopeless city girl I am.

Hey, my party-happy days are FAR from over, and I'm older than you! As a matter of fact, I just had a fabulous bash to welcome my 40th year, and it was a wild and crazy time! Wish you could've been there, Apol. :-)

Ohmy, happy birthday, Katrina! Where are the photos? Let me have a look-see and at least party vicariously :D

As to your question: I enjoyed my friends' company. The walking five hours I could have done without!

your post made me smile. thats normally how our walks turn out, a good idea that degenerates with drizzling rain and H looking at dead things or attempting to figure out what animal left a lump of poo on the path... sometimes I rather stay at home with a cup of coffee and a nice book to read.

Hi, Apol. Is your book Provenciana out in the stores already? If yes, could you let me know where I can get a copy? Thanks. :)

KATRINA, I loved that the photos showed how the evening progressed (regressed?;D), from cutesy-posey-pretty shots to the inevitable laswa! Sheesh, look at this post and your photos. We live on different planets now! But I do wish I could have taken spaceship 45 and attended your bash. Looks really fun.

BLYTHE, my publisher is running late, but we're almost at the finish line. I will post news on this blog once it's out. Thank you for your interest!

K, you tagged me, I'm it...

Yup, that's just how it went -- me, at first, trying to be the cool, gracious hostess, but as more alkie flowed, my real bakla self inevitably burst out! And it was the same with everyone else there, so it was really a party to remember! :-D


Can't wait for your book, Apol! Wow, I'm still so amazed that you're about to become a published book author! And it's absolutely well-deserved!
