Reading and cuppa

Hi there , welcome to my room .
Not a bad weekend here . Weather was not too unkind . Spent a bit of time cleaning up the back yard . De cobwebbing really . Did walk through our parks too,  on one of our many walking trails . I actually walked about 20 that's right 20ks . Pulled up a little stiff on Sunday . Surprised? NO!

How was your weekend ? Hope that it was enjoyable .

Make it Monday Linky Party #156 has opened and you are welcome to join in .

Lazy Days sentiment and butterfly image   are  from a freebie on a magazine .And it could relate to retirement , get well,  or birthday wishes so I have left the inside blank until needed .

Ah, love your card this week. She is doing exactly what I want to be doing, drinking a nice hot cup of tea and reading a book. The perfect way to spend your time after a 20k walk lol.
I found you through the MIM Link Party where I am also partying, would love it if you'd stop by too.
Hugs, antonella :-)

Such a cutie pie she is and the little flowers at the bottom look so sweet.
