FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. The cold weather continues, we still have up to - 15° (2 F) or less during the nights and the days are not much better. So far only 3 people died of the cold in Belgium, one old person in her flat, another on her way home, and a third one who had Alzheimer fell in a canal. Fortunately the homeless have at least a warm bed over night, and there are rooms where they can stay during the day and they also get warm food and drinks. This is also available for those who don't have enough money to heat their home !
2. When I go out I feel as if I have doubled my volume with all these layers of clothes ! After my "warming up" in Acqua Gym, I went to a store to buy me a warmer hat, I feared loosing my ears. I also needed some warm jogging trousers for Yoga.
my Eskimo (?) hat, at least warm !
3. After Yoga with my warm trousers, I went with Dominique to her 89 year old mother, who lives in a little flat in a private retirement home. Very beautiful ! She had brought her own furniture but not too much so her living room looked real cosy. We chatted over an hour, she loves her computer and keeps herself updated on Internet ! She looks great and doesn't seem her age at all. We had a nice time with her.
As the the sun was shining Ilona and I went for a walk through a huge park in Brussels, it was cold but also very beautiful. I made quiet a lot of pictures, which I will show in a later post.
5. We weren't a lot in our painting class, for some it was too cold to go outside, I had started a new painting, but run out of ideas, I think my brain starts freezing too !
