    Gerda, thank you so much for this wonderful post! I love rainbows and bubbles and always have.
    My heart is warmed immensely, seeing the photos of the double rainbow and of you and Peter enjoying life.
    Russ and I got our first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Monday. I enjoyed seeing the pictures of your grandchildren and their pets as well. God bless you all bunches! Thanks for brightening my day! Happy Valentine’s Day tomorrow!

      Thanks so much for your lovely post, Cheryl. Happy to hear from a fellow bubble/rainbow lover! So great that you and Russ got your first dose. Even though we’ll still have to be careful, life will be so much better once the vaccine kicks in. Have a wonderful year with all of those you love.

    Ah-ha! At last in this lockdown: happiness! Which your delightful writing brought me too, thank you. I wish I’d seen that double rainbow but perhaps it was a sign from the heavens meant for you and Peter.
    That can’t be Aliya?! xoxoxo

      Thanks, as always, my dearest Shen, for even reading my happy clappy moments and for being an eight color band on my rainbow! It is shocking how can be 10 going on twenty. She is still mostly not into teen things, but oh, she adores dressing up–must have gotten it from her Ouma? But not the ouma-style, thank goodness. So lovely to have you in my life.
