MY WEEKEND OF NOVEMBER 23

November is really an awful month. It's cold, grey and humid. But on Saturday afternoon it was dry and Ilona and I decided to take some fresh air and do a little walk. But when I arrived at her home, a strong wind had come up and it was so cold that we preferred to stay inside with the fire in the stove and a good hot cup of tea.

In the evening we had our monthly theater play. As usual we had first supper in the restaurant which is part of the theatre.



The play was called "Venice in snow" and it was absolutely hilarious. We laughed that much, that our bellies hurt when we came out. It was a real good play and the fact that we had laughed so much during 2 h, was good for our morose moods !

On Sunday morning I had to go to the Brussels' midi market. I was really lucky. I left with a little rain, but when I arrived the sun was shining.



I could even sit outside and listen to the accordion player, who played old French chansons. I bought some fruits and a pajama and caught the bus just in time before it started raining again.

The rest of the day I was busy with laundry watching TV and made collages for Christmas cards !

Once again you had a more interesting weekend than me. That's because you live in Waterloo and I live.....well somewhere else. But I do have better weather than you though we both have to do laundry.

How well I remember Candlelight Theater. I'm glad you could laugh your blues away. It sounds like you had a good weekend all round. (((Hugs))) Jo

I guess pajama is night wear and not something else. I had to translate chansons, although I should have known from the song Chanson D'Amour. I have learnt something, male chanteur, female chanteuse. I thought chanteuse was more like a beautiful, flirtatious and charming woman.

I only remembered to do the laundry late Sunday night and then I had to wait for it to finish so I could hang it out to dry! But, it's all clean again now and I only have to put it away.

I would want to laugh with you at the theater!!! Morning we are waiting for snow!!! But I think not on the coast but more inside La Provence! Pierre said the black "briquette" you can put in the stove is a plus! Don't like very well november too!!
