FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1.Nothing very special happened this week. Our windows were so dirty that it really was necessaary to have them cleaned because they are French windows and very huge. When we had the joints of our terrace done, it had caused a lot of dust and therefore the windows were more dirty than usual.
This forced me to wash all the curtains of course ! But they are easy, I just put them in the machine and then hang them up again when they are still wet.
2. The sun was shining so before the Yoga class started 3 of us sat on a little wall to let the sun shine on our faces. Our teacher saw us and told us to stretch the inside of our hands towards the sun, this would give us in 3 min the dose of vitamine D we need every day. Of course we didn't know that, so we stretched our open hands towards the sun and sat there almost like the 3 monkeys (don't hear, don't listen, don't speak) much to the laughter of some teenagers who were there too and watched us. But we had our vitamine D for the day !
3. From time to time I go to the Charity shop which supports battered women.
They often have very interesting things to buy for little money.
I bought this beautiful basket for 5 € and put my season basket inside, now it's higher and looks better.
Of course I couldn't resist to buy a bus (!!) and a car to add to little Toby's car collection !
Just opposite the shop is the Swingolf course where we will play next year when it gets warmer. So far we weren't lucky each Tuesday when we wanted to play it rained ! I thought I could take some nice pictures of colored trees, but this year the trees are still green. That's not normal, but nothing was normal this year weatherwise.
Time to prepare the terrace for winter, so we covered the furniture under the watchful eyes of cat Arthur. He always has to check if we do things right.
5. I needed cat food and went shopping ! I thought I would find a lot of Halloween decoration as it was the case 2 years ago, but not at all ! Last year already there were only a few witches and pumpkins and this year nothing !
But there was a huge space with Christmas decoration ! Now ! not yet mid October ! Next year they will start at Easter ! I am really not ready for Christmas !!
My camera had started to make blurr pictures, so I brought it for reparation ! It will last about a month ! I have a little spare camera, but the picture quality is not so good. So when I saw the same camera for half price in a household appliances shop where I only went through without intention to buy anything, but I couldn't let go this opportunity !
What did I do ? I bought it and now I feel much better ! The lousy weather and the Christmas decoration had damaged my good mood, the new camera brought it back !
