more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

1. We had another teacher at Acqua Gym, because the usual one had hurt her back and had to stay in bed. This one is far to energic and quick and we old ladies couldn't follow, so I told her just to imagine she was 20 years older and if she would then still hop around. That calmed her down and she said we should go all to the rythm we feel, which of course we did. It ws again an awful rainy weather in the afternoon and besides my blogging work I also did some household scores.

2. Yoga was very funny, first we did eye exercises,  where I only regretted that I didn't know that when I was a student to copy discretely on my classmate without the teachers noticing. Then we had to throw our arms into the air and then vigorously let them fall between our legs with a loud scream ! I did my best to scream, but then I couldn't hold back my laughter when I heard and saw the others. Fortunately I wasn't the only one, because two others also got a laughing fit. Excellent exercise when you see the world in black !


For once Mr. G. and I went out together, because his friend had invited us to the inauguration of his new own hair salon in the Wellington Gallery which was very beautiful. There were quiet a lot of people in the Gallery, whom I didn't know but Mr. G. yes, so I got the impression to walk a dog who stopped all five minutes at a tree. Only in this case the trees were replaced by people.


With my friends Nicole and Dominique we went to a Mexican Restaurant which had an extraordinary decoration with all old machineries. Unfortunately we only recognized a wine press, a wheel of fortune, a machine to make beer etc. We asked the owner to make a list of the decoration items ! It was really interesting.

It also was quiet cheap because at lunch time they served a "all you can eat" buffet for 11 € only (14.50$)

After the restaurant we had coffee and apple cake at Nicole's

Enviously observed by Charly after he had swallowed the bones of the spareribs which we had brought him.


After our painting course where  Charly was our art critic, I finally bought the barrier for Mr. G's bed and I hope that he doesn't jump over it when he dreams he jumps over walls or fences in his dreams.

It's funny, but our old boys like staying home. I've been going out lately with my girl friends, but Hubby just wants to be home. He says he is getting too old. (He will be 74 next week!)

Charly is so beautiful. I'm sure Lindy would like him.

That restaurant looks quite spectacular, and the food looks great too. All you can eat for only 11€? This gives you a reason to go there more often!

Susanne said...

Interesting decor in that Mexican restaurant and the food looks mouth watering!

It's been cold and rainy here for a few days but I won't complain because it has been such a dry winter everything needs the moisture so badly.
