We found a perfect spot close to tall cypress trees where there was plenty of space for playing volleyball. After our refreshment, mainly fresh fruits and drinks, I read from an Astrid Lindgren book for the children and as I was doing that this cute old couple approached our spot with two chairs and sat down close to us. Maybe it was the reading in Icelandic that lured them to us, I don't know. But there they sat the whole time we were there, reading and occasionally touching each other hands, so sweet. For us it was like spending the day with the great-grandparents (they were really old). I had to restrain myself from not walking over to them and ask them what's your story; it felt like every wrinkle had something to say.
We spent about four hours in the park. Right before going home I was turned into a bicycle repairman. Our son had been playing with the pedals on his sisters' bicycles and the chains were off the chain wheels. So there I was with my Chanel Miami Peach (203), getting my nails and fingers terrible dirty. It was a beautiful day for the Nightingale Park but a sad one for Chanel nail polish.
Today we are going back to the park. Have a wonderful day everyone!
PS. Yesterday I spotted a post in my right sidebar with the title 'A cup of latte to you...' and was intrigued. I opened it to find out that my blogfriend Lila at A Simplesmente Lila Braga had written a post to wish my blog a happy birthday. Thank you Lila again for this kind gesture! If you aren't already following Lila's blog you must know that it contains her beautiful photography and each post has an inspirational quote and a dose of Lila's heart.
