Now usually, I like to set out a little refreshment for my guests, perhaps a nice glass of lemonade, or a slice of pie. We can sit a while and visit and take some time to get to know each other, in a gentle kind of refined way.
You see, I've been rather busy this past week taking care of this:
My mother is away visiting my brother in Greece right now. So I have been faithfully driving over to my parents' home twice a day, watering all of her MANY hanging baskets and flower beds, preparing meals for my Dad, and taking care of my Mum's sweet cat "Button."

But I bet we'll have fun together anyway. And when it's time for a break, this is where I'm planning to head. Wanna join me?
