Week 44, Project 365

My fondness for symmetry is well-known so obviously I'm happy that it's week forty-four of Project 365. To say nothing of the fact that four is my favorite number; not sure why but I've always liked the number four.

As some of you know, my Macbook had a close encounter with the hard ceramic floor in my living room on Friday evening. I managed to hang onto it (as it was slipping from my hands) until it was about a foot off the floor, so it wasn't totally destroyed but it did suffer major damage to the screen. Since the part will have to be imported it could be a while before it's fixed. *sigh* Meanwhile Ivan is graciously sharing his PC.

First up this week are flowers from our garden. The lavender plant is doing quite well and I plan to dry some and make sachets.

Work on the lot next door proceeds. At the beginning of the week they poured the footers.

By the end of the week they'd started on the walls.
The cherry tomato plant from last year came back of its own accord and already has a tomato just about ready to pick. I love fresh tomatoes!

Wednesday we went to Cordoba. Our first stop was the Palacio Ferreyra, which was originally the private home of one of the wealthiest families in the country. The government turned it into an art museum a few years ago. Every time I go I think what a wonderful place for a Cinderella-type of wedding.

Our last stop that day was Walmart. I'd never seen this sign designating for-pregnant-women-only-parking. Do they use it in the U.S. too?

Our neighbors have two dogs, both adorable. This is one of them.

Speaking of dogs, we were downtown the other night and walked through a galeria (sort of like a mini mall) and what should we see -- inside! -- but a dog. They're EVERYWHERE!

And finally, a photo of our honeysuckle bush which is loaded with intoxicating blossoms -- I wish I could share the heavenly scent with you.
Sharing the PC means less computer time; I won't be able to comment as often; it'll be more like drive-by visits, slowing down just long enough to read your posts. I hope you'll forgive my lack of blog etiquette in the meantime.
