WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of June 29. If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.
When I opened the stores on Saturday, instead of light and bright sunshine, it was grey and dark and the rain dribbled on the roof ! I just wanted to return "under cover". Instead I got up, and was in a real bad mood ! After having done such interesting things like putting the laundry in the washing machine, I started blogging which brought me into other countries were people complained about the heat and that they couldn't go outside either and even had to wear masks because of haze.
I had to take an umbrella when I went out for some window shopping, where it was dry at least.
Of course when you look for something, you never find it. Which was my case. When I came home Mr. G. had just finished watching his Formular 1, and seemed happy about the results. I returned to my computer and googled for something to do this week. There was strictly nothing besides outside activities, but visiting things in the rain is not really my cup of tea.
From computer I switched over to TV, but before I folded the dammit laundry.
On Sunday it seemed to be better and a miracle happened the sun came out ! I did a little walk through the market in the neighbor town found an open shoe shop (shops are closed on Sundays) and followed David Bowie's song to put red shoes on, but for that I had to buy them first, which I did. This made me feeling better.
In the afternoon, Ilona who had been in the same mood as I decided to go for a walk in the Gaasbeek park and it was really nice. The wood smelled so good after all this rain, the castle looked beautiful, and there were quiet a lot of people.
After an hour walking through the park, we were thirsty and went to the Tavern located opposite the castle. As neighbors we had
Alpacas, which are new and I saw them for the first time. The "hippie" on the bottom right, cheered us really up !
Then we watched the peacock, courting a cute peacock girl, unfortunately without success, she chased him away !
Refreshed and happy we returned home. Mr. G. had been in Silverstone UK for the Formular 1 again and was also satisfied with his afternoon. He doesn't like to walk !
