Holidays Ireland

1. The school holidays are over and Belgium woke up. There are more traffic jams and school kids with new outfits on the street ! We too had changed our scrabble day, now it's on Mondays again and not on Thursdays, because our painting class has started too .

2. The Lunch Garden menu was "Carbonade Flamande" (Flemish stew) and it's one of Nicole's favorite plates. So we went for the the Stew and afterwards to her home to play scrabble. We should be 4. The phone rang it was Ilona, she was still busy with her sister and the funeral paperwork, so she said she probably couldn't come. We waited and waited but Mireille didn't show up either finally I called her and caught her on a boat on the Rhine, where she made a cruise ! We had forgotten that she couldn't come. Playing scrabble only the two of us was a bit boring so I explained her some new features on her tablet.

3. I got up one day and the only thing I wanted to do was nothing. I prepared my posts, had lunch and then disappeared behind the TV, Rosie kept me company, she was in energy saving mood too.




4. Our friend Monique had never been in Nicole's apartment which is very special. Impossible to describe, because it looks like a house but is an apartment. Nicole had bought a delicious cake and we ate it all ! There was so much to talk about that we didn't see the time flying by and suddenly it was already 6 pm.

5. Painting class started at 9 am, and I hadn't even looked in my bag ! It still stood there as I had put it end June. I decided to give up the finger painting with acrylic and start with pastel again. Fortunately this bag was packed and I arrived in time.



The first day !



Our teacher had a great idea for the poster of the annual exhibition of our masterpieces. She gave us all a piece of a puzzle and we had to paint something on it. When everybody had done so she put the puzzle together and here is the result. Of course it's not yet finished, the text etc is missing but I think it is a real special idea and everybody had the opportunity to show his painting style.

I really like that puzzle, Gattina. Very creative.

I think your style is the orange daisy with the blue background in the middle of the puzzle. Am I right?

Wendy said...

I expect you're glad to have your painting class to go to again. Lovely idea with the puzzle pieces.

Fiona said...

The puzzle is a great idea to showcase all the group's talent. Rosie is very sweet, hope you have more for scrabble next week. xx

Happy Furriday. May your Caturday be relaxing.

I have days like that...just want to lay around and do nothing productive. We need them sometimes. Scrabble for two may be a bit more boring than scrabble for four, but I hope you two had a nice time. Love the puzzle picture!

Tamago said...

Wow I really love the puzzle! What a wonderful and unique idea! I love each one of the paintings and love it as one piece of art, too!

Light and Voices said...

What a cool idea to paint a puzzle piece and then put them all together. Looks like contemporary art to me. Great job!

Tricky Wolf said...

Rosie looks adorable, I find that cats are some of the world's best energy savers so they make great company on lazy days :)

Thank you so mucheck for continuing to contribute to Five on Friday, I hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

What a beautiful, rugged shoreline!

Susan said...

Nice idea for the puzzle advertisement. I am going to keep that idea in mind.

I smiled when I read that you and your cat were in energy saving mode. There have been a few times when that would have been a great description of my energy level.

Too bad about no Scrabble this week. But how nice for your friend that you showed her some new things on her tablet.

I hope you have a great week, Gattina.

I love the puzzle idea! I was looking for a piece with a cat on it to be yours. :-) Scrabble is not quite as fun with just two, although when I play online it is usually with just one other person. Love your photos at the top! I need a do-nothing day here soon. Or energy-saving. :-)

Love the idea of the jigsaw painting, such a novel idea.

Willow said...

The painting class teacher had a great and creative idea. I like it!
Playing scrabble with two people would still be fun. Maybe next week you'll have your usual four or five people.
I like days like you had snuggled up with the cat!

Susanne said...

We live across the street from a school so I totally know what back to school traffic is like. It's just awful first thing in the morning and in the afternoon! I need a good day off like you and your cat had!
