Escape fwom the Heat

It was beastly hot last week in Boo da Pest and Mommi has been not too well wif hew depwessions and stuff, so some deew fwiends said "come down to ouw house in Szentbékkálla". 
 It's in the wine gwowing wegion of Lake Balaton and they wewe about to hawvest theiw gwapes fow theiw Pee No No Awe. So off we went to the twain stashun and twaveled in a hot old twain , but when we got thewe, it was all bootiful.
 Still hot, but wif coolew evenings and a chance to swim 
(plus they have aiw condishun in theiw house)
Hewe I am on the twain ankshuss fow the fun to begin 

It's a bootiful house on a hill , wif lavendew and bloo skies and lots of yummie foodabulls and wine and good company 

the hoomans went swimming while I dozed in the aftewnoon 

then thewe wewe invitashuns to othew fwiends fow lunches and dinnews 
and a day going to the local mawket

The hoomans also went fow a concewt in the local chuwch (they have concewts evewy satuwday in the summew wif all sowts of fabooloos moosishuns..this time, it was a stwing quawtet playing Shumann and Bwahms)
they sewve little nibbly things and wine aftew

Oh Asta! What a nice trip! Did your Momma have a good time? Your Aunt Juli looks like a fun person and I love those pictures of the grapes and the things in the bakery!!!

Unknown said...

Asta we hope you are feeling a bit better now. We loved you slide show. Brings back so many memories for the peeps. Take Care.
Best wishes Molly

Oh Asta, you have the bestest adventures!! A train ride?? Oh, I can't even imagine the fun! Everything looked great, and I'm glad you got to enjoy some air conditionin'!

WFT Nobby said...

Oh Asta, we had been missing you, and wondering if you and Mommi and Daddi were OK. Thank you for telling us all about your trip. It looks lovely there by the lake. We know you like to swim and are wondering if you had the chance -there were no pictures. We do hope that Mommi is feeling refreshed now, after all that country air, and uplifting music (and of course the Pee No No Awe*) and that those horrid blues go away and stay away.
Toodle pip!

Cowspotdog said...

That looked like a pawsome trip and definitely a great way to escape the heat, I am sure being with friends helped you Mom a lot.

Lovable Lily said...

Wow Asta, you got to go on a train ride. I didn't know that they would allow "us" on a train ~ silly humans! You look mighty comfortable in that seat.

You had a wonderful vacation with your Mommy. So much fun there an so much to do too. We hope your Mommy's depression is much better now.

rottrover said...

Oh Asta! We wish we could have been there with you! What a lovely trip you all had. It's very hot here in Lost Angel Eez today and our mom's brain gets all fuzzy and she looses focus and just wants to lie on the bed in the a/c and read. But today we sent her to her work place and she gets to sit in the cool, cool air there and we hope she's happier when she comes home.

What a great trip. A train, a swim, trip to the market, cool air conditioned house and great concerts.

boy are you living the life. I wonder if it is hot everywhere in the world.


Lorenza said...

Sure you all had a great time there!
I hope it made your mom feel better!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Asta, is it my imagination or are you developing a bit more of a lithhttshp? It took me awhile to figure out that PIN O KEE O NWIRE, but the Lacie being a linguistic expert deduced you were talking about a new type of Coke Zero that grows on vines...now is it dry or sweet? If it's not sweet enuff for me, I'll just add a bunch of Schlag. Wasn't that concert bootiful? Didn't you just love Archie on the tuba...did you see all those people looking shocked? Sheesch...they don't know fine music. Love the little steps into the lake...so much better to do it gradually than in one big jump.

Mumsie is still horribly sad. What completely sucks is the only thing she can do to make her feel better is to groom us. If I see that stripping knife one more time I reaaly will bite her. Scruffy already did. Stan loves it...she just brushes and brushes him. Actually she seems to have developed arthritis in her hands just from the last 3 days of her obsessive grooming. Why can't she just drink?

Mom and Dad are getting really excited for their trip. Only a few weeks away! They will see you soon, Birthday Girl!

Momma just loved the music on your smilebox! Who was singing and title, please?

You know your Mommi has a smile that lights up the world when she lets it shine!

Adventures are grand but friends are a precious treasure...and your family is blessed to have so many.

Hi Asta, sorry to hear about your mom, they are such a worry.
We agree the trip to the lovely house was just the thing.

TwoSpecialWires said...

The best comment we can muster is: "We miss you terribly. And we think of you so often. And why does life have to be so hard?" We're glad you all got to go on a pleasant little trip together. We're hoping you are still gaining strength from the memories of it.

Your pretty worthless 'adoptive bruvverJake and sissieFergi (who are struggling to help OurMoma find what it takes these days)

Much love.
Many smooches
