A BLACK DAY
More participants here
Last Sunday the sun was shining as if payed for and it was quite warm for the season. An exceptional weather for Belgium. I decided to go to the Ardennes, the Belgian "mountains", to take some pictures of an historical site..
Enjoying the sunshine we walked on the old roman site, where we could admire a roman farm from 200 after JC ! The cows we saw weren't quite that old and what they had left on the grass was even very fresh. I noticed that when I stepped in a very nice hill of cow poop. Hopping on one leg, I tried to clean my shoe, but my balance apparently wasn't the same as it used to be in the past, because I found myself suddenly sitting in the grass. The pleasures of land life !
First thing I did when we stopped in a Café was going to the restroom to clean up myself a little. Besides the sink was a little white cabinet, which seemed very easy to put my handbag on. That's what I did. To my surprise my handbag disappeared inside and the upper side of the cabinet had drifted apart. It wasn't a cabinet but a white bin ! I fished for my purse between used paper towles and tissues and finally pulled it out. Now I had to clean myself plus the purse. When I finally came out of the restroom my friend thought that I had fallen in the toilet.
We sat down outside in the sunshine and had a nice local beer. There were a lot of people who had had the same idea and the café was full. It was very pleasant to sit there and enjoy the sunshine. When I returned home, I had forgotten my misfortunes with the cow poop and the cabinet and was quite happy with my day. Until the next morning where I realized that I had left my camera on the table of the café.
Moral of the story some days even when the sun is shining it's better to stay in bed or at least at home !
