Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of April 6. If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.

Saturday it was again grey, windy and very cold so I decided to just do nothing, or almost ! Just a lazy day. After some household scores not worthwhile to be mentioned, and a little TV watching with and after my lunch, I just felt creative and wanted to play a little with my photos on the computer.

The result was this. I think I will use them for a new header ! What do you think of me being a cat ??

On Sunday morning a miracle happened ! The sun was shining and the sky ink blue !

I took the bus to the Brussels' midi market and bought fresh strawberries just arriving from Morocco. 2 Euros (2.6 $)  for 1 kg (2.2 lbs) ! Unbelievable. The market was packed with people from all corners of the world, and we could even sit outside in the sunshine.

In the afternoon I took the opportunity to salt our gravel ! I used 18 kgs of salt ! Now no weed can grow there. When I was finished it looked as if it had snowed. I also took a picture as "souvenir" of the first blue sky since a very long time !

And while I was busy in front of the house, Oscar the lawn mower robot worked behind the house. One of my neighbors came over to admire it working and was so enthusiastic that now he wants to buy one too. Soon the whole street will have it because my friend Dominique will also buy one  ! I should ask for some commission from the supplier !

Gattina, I appreciate you checking out my current events post. What I don't think you realize is that religious groups have no business being lumped in with terrorists groups. We, law-abiding, God-fearing normal citizens of our country, are being targeted. There was a recent passage of a law that allows for illegal search and seizure, illegal arrests of our citizens, without due process....so labeling us as "dissident" just paves the way for citizens to be unlawfully (un-Constitutionally) arrested for just speaking our mind. It is very frightening! I'm not sure which country you live in, but if you remember what happened in Germany under Hitler, you will understand that this is a very serious issue!

No! You look dreadful being a cat, I don't like that picture at all. Find some needles and do some knitting with that wool and stay away from that computer site.
Did you buy any of those shoes with the really high heels?

$2.60 for a kilo of strawberries, that's incredible. That market looks incredible. Now why can't we have markets like that here?
