7 May 2012


Helps you to remember what you have done on weekend May 5, 2012.

What a weekend ! The weather was just awful ! Mr. G. managed to clean the entrance with the Karcher, after having done the terrace the day before, just when the sun shined for a few minutes, before it disappeared and it started to rain again !

Sir Arthur thought it's now so clean it would need some muddy paw prints. At least one work finished !

The flowers which I wanted to plant, are still sitting outside in their cartons, I managed to plant 4 begonias in two pots, when I had to stop and go inside because it started to rain again.

So I went over to Dominique who, each Saturday morning does painting classes for these little girls, usually there are two more, but they were sick ! They are all very motivated and start to become real little artists. It was fun to watch them painting.

Sunday it was even worse, although it didn't rain, but it was very cold and windy. I hurried to the market to buy roasted chicken breast and vegetables for our supper took some pictures because there also was a little fair, but it was really not fun at all to stay outside !

The afternoon I was busy with the creation of new headers, watched a little movie and we had to turn the heating on ! Dominique came over because we wanted to organize our trip to London, there are special offers for the Musical "Ghost" combined with a hotel stay. We want to go there in June and at this occasion also meet my blogfriend Jo from South Africa, but actually living in Tanzania,who comes to London with her husband. As we live so far from each other this will be an unique opportunity to meet each other "life" !

The evening we spent with Inspector Barnaby and his Midsomer Murders, at least there it didn't rain  and according to the clothes it also was quiet warm.

For next week it won't be better only the temperatures will raise a little more !

Sweet May has come to love us, Flowers, trees, their blossoms don; And through the blue heavens above us The very clouds move on.”
Heinrich Heine (of course that was in 18hundred something !)

The weather is not at all bad this morning, there is sunshine and it's even comfortably warm around here. Maybe I can even do my ironing on the patio this afternoon? Saturday was horrible, it felt like November!

We seem to have had some dry weather over the last few days, quite unexpectedly as well! Perhaps I need to blow some your way?

I had to go out yesterday and London was absolutely freezing cold!

Today, oddly enough, it feels pretty OK though...

Mine is up, and I am actually home from court. I did not serve today, but now I have to go back in two weeks.

What nice flowers you bought! Hope you'll plant them in a short time now! Sounds Dominique has nice pupils! She looks a super teacher!
Nice you will meet Jo in London! It's a marvelous thing to meet your blog friend from South Africa!

I am trying to get the BBQ going Nothing like Charcoal BBQ
The new gas BBQ's are not the same thing.
You want something good, use charcoal.
We used to have burgers made this way at Harveys but now this also changed so they are just another burger joint Nothing special.
So home is the best place to get the extra delicious summer BBQ treats.
Yesterday I also made sushi. With the leftover salmon skin and rice and veggies and few pieces of salmon I wrapped them all up in the skin and microd it.It was delcious with soy but with the BBQ it will be even better.Still have to try making mozzarella cheese with the rennet I got.
