Visitors and sunshine

Today we have bright sunshine, the doors and windows are open, and joy of joys, washing on the line. Last night we had a delightful young man stay, he is living in Auckland but is from Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, in China. That city is the Capital of that province, and  has a population of 3 MILLION people. Most would travel by bus or bicycle, private cars also, but parking is not available for them. These photos are courtesy of the internet .

Back in Auckland, Kathy and Marinda are waiting for their  Daddy to come home.
Quotation of the day from author unknown
“ Cherish those you love, and love will come back to you more than tenfold”
Cheers from Jean

I just love a clothesline : )
Your blog is very intriguing. So many words and places I have no clue about. Cute kids!

Yes Michaele, I am learning more every day, not sure which will be after Alaska. Washing outside, a real bonus these days.And the girls, their Dad was so proud of them, sent the photo to me from his phone while standing next to my laptop.Marvellous technology. Cheers, Jean.
