It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Parks, Pups, Pears .....

After a futile visit to Apple today, we took Pup to the park.
Busy parrots, a happy Pup and the beautiful trees and flowers are enough to make anyone cheer up.
Tomorrow his stitches come out. That is the extent of the plans for this week.
I have joined Pup in recovering from the surgery and stress.

I did take a bunch of photos along the way , walking back from Apple.
I love these small houses .. I wish they had Open House tours or something here.
Stopping at the produce market for some sweet pears and ripe tomatoes ..We have been eating so much good fruit and veggies lately !
Not to mention sweets each day from the new Pastisserie, sandwiches of Roast Eggplant and Gouda, Rasberry Tarts and Banana Nut Muffins .. good thing we walk everywhere !


  1. Hello Candice:
    How really splendid to learn that Pup's stitches are shortly to be removed. He will then be well on the way to recovery and you, too, must relax and try to put this very worrying time behind you.

    The pears look delicious. We have returned to Budapest where the Hungarian strawberries are now plentiful in the market, as is the asparagus. Both we find moreish!!

  2. Lovely photos, lovely day (despite the Apple trip)... How I love pears! The photo makes my mouth water ... Good luck to Pup and his vet day with stitches... Now I need to try and get my mind off of roasted eggplant, pears and patisseries!!!! Oh how I envy you!!!!! ♥
