And some Bali Bead Porn
Off to visit a coffee plantation today.
It,s 4.30 am (I know I'm an early riser) on a beautiful Bali morning. The sound of motor bikes and the incessant beeping of horns has yet to start. Just the occasional crow of a rooster is the only sound to be heard. It's warm and still even the sun hasn't started to rise yet. Best time of the day for me, love having the early morning to myself.
First impressions........it's lush and green, the people are wonderfully friendly and helpful, the food is amazing and the heat and humidity are nowhere nearly as oppressive as I thought they would be. There is a certain amount of boob sweat going on but there's relief to be had in air conditioned shops and the pool at our accommodation is getting a serious work out.
Yesterday was a trip to Kuta for an amazing head neck and shoulder massage......bliss as you can see from the look on my face. Then it was back to Seminyak for a girlie day with daughter and future daughter I law. Manicures and pedicures all round, it's been years since I've had either.
This was my first purchase, a rather large and colorful hat.
I would love some of these to put in my garden.
Today is bead shopping......the guys will just have to grin and bare it. I spotted several interesting bead stores on the way to Kuta yesterday so that's where I'm headed today.
Till next time.......signing off from Bali.
If you have any questions leave me comment.
We couldn't have wished for a better night. It was very hot during the day and a bit windy and we were worried the decorations we had put up through the day would get blown to shreds. But by the evening the wind had died right down. It was perfect.
Some of the many tissue pom poms I made.
The pool in the late afternoon ........
So now it's over, the last minute preparations for my stall next Sunday begin.
A basket of gift tags with more to be made.
Earring cards, I must make more earrings too.
A busy week ahead.
