Borolotti Bean salad with tuna, onion & mint – MLLA #49 (en)

Lately I find myself, a lot alone at home.
I specially love it when I come back from the trekking with tourists.
I so appreciate the silence that welcomes me when I open the door.
Usually there are some cats sleeping in the entrance, I avoid them smiling.

Sleeping cats -Molly with Vincent Vega, Lucy & Attilia

These 3 are Molly’s little ones, Vincent Vega, Attilia and Pepe (even if she a girl)
We haven’t found anyone that wants them so, they will stay with us…
Enlarging our cat family from 6 to 9 cats.
Fortunately they usually stay outside.

When I’m particularly lucky, nobody shows up for dinner!
So I set the table for me alone, in front of the dying sun over our beautiful lake.

Tabelscape with Common Snapdragon & Dipladenia

When I sit there looking out over the shining water, I let my thoughts run free.
Day dreaming, thinking, planning.
This regenerate and relaxes me, makes me feel happy.

Tabelscape with Common Snapdragon & Dipladenia

This evening I used Dipladenia and Common Snapdragon flowers, together with long weed leaves, trying to catch the same color as the tablecloth. (A lovely gift from my dear friend Aldissima)
The jug is from Ikea.

  3. Ho fatto vedere a mio marito (cat lover per eccellenza) la foto dei tuoi gattini. Rico (il nostro gatto nero che ora e’ qui vicino a me) manda un saluto speciale a Pepe. Carinissima la tavola preparata con la tovaglia che ti ha regalato Alda. E tonno e fagioli e’ una di quelle ricette sempre piacevoli da gustare alla sera. Se poi c’e’ un panorama come quello che hai tu, il gusto e’ anche migliore. Grazie per il contributo a My Legume Love Affair.
