You would think a Spanish dog would be acclimatised but, no, this is what Jose does all day, he has a walk at 7am, comes home, licks his sore feet, eats something then sleeps until late afternoon.
That lovely looking yellow flower is the bane of all growers here, many names, oxalis, Bermudan Buttercup. It takes over everything and is very difficult to get rid of.

We need something to cool us down, what shall we do??
Yes, let's pamper ourselves,
J had a hot stones and oil back massage and I had my eyebrows waxed.
Ade said she felt like she was walking on clouds and J was feeling so relaxed all afternoon. Nothing to do with the wine. I think itshould become a regular date.
Agia Marina is one of the Great Martyrs in the Orthodox Church.She was born a pagan, raised as a Christian, refused to marry a king, he had her tortured. She prevailed through prayer, the devil attacked but she beat him with a hammer, a dragon tried to swallow her. The king ordered her execution, many were converted as she prayed, the axeman hesitated but she pleaded with him to end her life. Her relics are in Athens and Mt. Athos, if anybody wants to go and visit....Gosh, what a life!!
