WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of February 25, 2012.
I went "cat" shopping on Saturday and bought a stock of cat food, because I am leaving on Thursday to the South of France to spend a week with my friend Claudie as I had done last year too. Mr. G. prentends he doesn't know what to buy exactly so of course I have to do it.
I was heartily greeted by this parrot who welcomed me with a loud "Bonjour" and then he told me everything in human language he knew. I really had to laugh it was so funny.
There also were to ladies who collected food for very mishandled and abused racing dogs which could have been saved from their cruel owners. I couldn't look at the pictures it made me sick. I bought a big bag of dog food and chatted a bit with the two ladies.
Then I visited a friend from my painting class in hospital, she has lung and spinal cancer and has to stay for a week to prepare her for the treatment. She is a real fighter ! She told me that she doesn't want to see the roots of the flowers yet and that she has not finished to devil people !
The entrance to the hospital from the parking is "very" welcoming ! You just arrive in front of the morgue ! Fortunately nobody had died when I arrived. But the main entrance is very cheerful. It is a nice and modern hospital with a very friendly staff.
Dominique had invited me for a cup of tea to see her grandchildren, unfortunately the pictures are blurred, only one was good enough, showing little Lucy who is 4 days older than my grandson Toby (15 month).
Compared to him she is very little, but walks around alone everywhere, tries to climb up the stairs and moved a kitchen shelf on wheels suddenly to the living room in the short time I was there.
On Sunday I went to the neighbor town Nivelles because they celebrated a big Carnival. I thought it would be a good opportunity to take some pictures for "Our World" tomorrow. I took the train because that day it is hard to find a parking space.
I arrived at 2 pm when the carnival procession started at the station.
Here are some pictures. (tomorrow I will publish a post for Our World with photos) It was very colorful and lots of carnival crazy people. After witches took of my cap with their brooms twice and I almost got an orange in my glasses, because instead of throwing sweets, they throw oranges, I had enough and called my friend Chantal who lives in Nivelles to pick me up to spent the rest of the afternoon with her outside of all this hurly burly, while her two sons with friends and girlfriends just got ready to celebrate until early morning hours.
