The choice


In a hot afternoon at home I enriched a pair of earrings I had, adding a small bell.


Now I can wear them either with or without it. 
Big choice! 
:-)


With this puzzle in mind, I was enjoying the ( very ) quiet living  in Airole, the village where my second home is.
 Even if when I am there I miss my beloved city of Turin, love wasting time and leave my mind go free


( please note my end-of-the-season purchase : the knitted skirt has a peculiar net print )


 In the village, the time goes by slowly and big news are not frequent, but this year  there is something different.
look at my back: you can see a cafe', don't you? 


It's in the main square of the village:  there I have a  nice view over the church, 
there is fresh wind coming from the halley and the owner is a very friendly person. 
Always ready to give a helping hand.
So far so good...


But in the same  ( tiny ) square they recently opened a second cafe': nice view over the fountain,  more comfortable chairs, very friendly owner here too.


You know, in a very small place all  commercial activities need to be supported 
Hence...



...Morning coffee here, afternoon cappuccino there,
luckily both cafes have a wifi connection!

P.s.
To be honest I have to precise that neither here nor there it works properly  !!!
( OK...I am on holidays )

    1. In my opinion summer is not the right season for long trips: high temperatures call for quiet holidays!!
      Yes, when I wear those bells I sometimes... make a ( very soft ) sound !

    1. Those are the big choices of a very quiet holiday!! :-)

      At the moment I am trying to save money ( hard task for a shopping addict) because, as you know, I bought a new car ... that means it's better if I don't plan a visit to The Netherlands . This is the ( sad ) truth... :-(

    2. I know. I am trying to come over to Turin, spend a couple of days in Paris with Ron in September and a weekend in Paris in October with Susan. But... no way I can afford all this. What to do?

    1. When I saw the skirt at 1/3 of its initial price...I had no doubts!!
      ( end of the season sales are a big temptation for me)

  10. A clever idea with those earrings. Love the navy and mustard together and your skirt is such an intriguing design.
    Your village looks pretty and beautifully peaceful. And comfy chairs are important when you're lingering over a coffee!
