FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. After our acqua gym I went with Dominique to a restaurant or rather a Pub, called "La Pomme" (The Apple) where I hadn't been since at least 5 year or more.
The decoration was still the same, but the food had very much improved and we really enjoyed our warm salads. I had a "Salade Paysanne" and Dominique goat cheese salad with honey. The portions were unusually big for Belgium, I think the restaurant had to adapt its portions to the fact that they have a lot of English and American employees who are working just in front in the Industrial zone, and I know that in these countries the food served is a lot more than in Belgium or France.
2. On my way back from shopping I stopped at Chantal's for a cup of tea
and while we chatted her two dogs were listening and apparently we had such nice subjects to discuss if you look at the dogs. Her youngest son was there too, after having studied Chinese, he now switched over to Japonese ! Not because of a girlfriend, she is French !
4. With this early warm weather our garden changed into a jungle and I had to call the gardener to cut all these bushes and hedges ! In the past Mr. G. did it, but as we are not getting younger, he can't do it anymore and I am only a weak woman.
He cut and cut and then had to put all the twigs and leaves in his little truck, poor man worked from 10 am til 4.30 pm !
5. Now that the entrance and the backyard looked clean of course I had to buy some flowers and put them in the pots
which I did and now it all looks clean and nice. I was quiet proud of the result and astonished that I wasn't too tired after all this physical work ! Of course I was supervised by my cats !
