WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of August 28, 2010. You never know if you need an alibi ! If you participate please leave your link.
Saturday the yearly "Braderie" started in Waterloo. Braderie means a street sales festival, where shops put their unsold stuff on the sidewalk for sale. I made a little tour and came back with a warm blanket with sleeves to wrap around you to keep you warm to watch TV.
Unfortunately it is very cool for August we only have around 15°C (59 F) and I had to put the heating on for first time this year !
On sunday it wasn't better, but Ilona came so we went together to the Waterloo parc where people sold their old or new stuff. Kind of Garage sale in a parc. I didn't find anything, but she bought two beautiful vases in blue glass and a book all for 5 €.
We went early so the sun was still a little shining, but the wind was very cold. Poor people who sat their to sell their things.
Later I went to my neighbor and friend Dominique to show her where I had booked our holidays while she was away with her grandson.
I found this hotel in Hurghada at the Red Sea in Egypt and we will spend two lazy weeks there laying in the sun and swimming in the sea ! I found these pictures on internet and we were looking at them and dreaming to be already there while outside it rained cats and dogs. We had made the round trip through Morocco together and now we just want to relax and prepare ourselves to become grandmas in November !
The rest of the weekend looked like above, watching TV and hanging around besides of course my usual blogging "work" !
