FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. Our acqua gym teacher was on holidays so we had another girl. I think she must have been a sergeant because she counted all the time "One, two, one two, two three seven ..." in a loud military voice. When I said I feel like being in military exercise instead of an old lady friendly acqua gym, she at least didn't shout the numbers anymore, nobody amongst us was deaf. We all prefered our good Michele !
2. I went with a friend to our favourite asiatic restaurant, it's nice there, because they also have a takeaway so I always order one plate more to take home for Mr. G. Which means another cooking free evening.
3. The weather was wonderful this week, sunshine all the time, the only thing which bothered me was that in the morning you thought being at the Northpole and the afternoon in Africa. Such a big temperature difference ! you had to dress up like an onion and peel layer by layer off with the raising temperature !
4. I cleaned the gravel in front of our house from the first outcoming weeds before it started to get worse and then spread simple kitchen salt all over the gravel. That's a very efficient (and cheap) mean to keep weeds away. It's also ecofriendly and not dangerous for animals.
As the weather was still nice and warm, we cleaned the patio and the garden furniture with a Kärcher water pressure washer, and removed the plastic we had on the furniture to protect them during the winter. It was quiet some work but we did it and now it looks nice and clean all the moss is gone and we can now sit outside. Hopefully we don't get any frost anymore. As the flowers are not growing yet I put some fake once in the pots, at least it looks a little colorful.
