FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. The week was rather boring, not to speak about the weather and my cold loves me so much that it doesn't want to leave me. The only possibility to go outside was going inside somewhere. To cheer me up I went to a very big toy store
which is really a dreamland for kids ! From baby age til teenagers they really have everything. As Toby's birthday approaches, I updated myself on the last toy fashion and finally found something very nice. It's only for November 17th, so it's a secret.
2. My friend Nicole asked me to help her with her curtains to hang them up because they are very large, of course we combined this "work" with a long chat coffee and cake.
Her dog Charly was happy about the company but even more when he shared the cake with us !
3.The beautiful bouquet my son brought me three weeks ago started to striptease slowly, slowly
which doesn't bother Arthur who collects the leaves on his back.
4. Since more than three years this house was built and is still empty. Nobody knows exactly why ! The other day I heard a terrible noise and when I looked out of the window I saw a big metal arm collecting something, fortunately it was still daylight otherwise it would have been quiet spooky !
There is never a move in this house, although somebody sometimes opens and closes the windows.
Since I started this blog 6 years ago, this was the first year , that I couldn't make any Halloween pictures. There was simply nothing. Not in the shop windows, no Halloween party in the Waterloo park and in our street only one house was "decorated" and that was the first time ! My other neighbor who always had such a nice Halloween decoration, had done nothing, probably because their son is now too "old" ! I went to Ilona, because in her area there was always Halloween decorations in the street, but there too, nothing. So we we decided to be witches who take a cup of tea together and I went home without pictures.
5. There was "All Saints" day which is a holiday in Belgium, and the use is that the whole population visits graveyards to clean the graves and put flowers on them. The whole year the graveyards look rather dull, but on this one day it's full of crysanths which are used as grave decorations. There is even a big reportage in the News about the graveyard visits all over Belgium.
I love this plant because it even blooms in November and bought two for our frontyard, despite the fact that there is no grave there (at least not to my knowledge), but it rained so much that I couldn't plant them yet. I wanted to go on the old Waterloo cimetary, with beautiful statues and take some pictures, but with my faithful cold, I decided to stay inside and not risk to find myself at the place of crysanths !
Rosie celebrated perfectly "All Saints" Day.
