more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

1. After the last eventful week, this week was very calm. On Monday I didn't move at all and spent the day between some household scores and updating my blog.

2. The weather was nice and I could sit outside and take a last sunbath and also work on our terrace.

3. Our city administration had the excellent idea to repair the main street in Waterloo and at the same time also the side street which could have been used to avoid the main street's traffic, which is completely stuck every day as it only goes one way. With the speed of a snail you finally reach the center.

4. I was quiet busy to create a wedding card which should look a little special and bought some scrapbooking things to make it nice. That took me almost the whole day !

5. My son is getting married in Amsterdam this weekend, which doesn't change very much for us, as he and his girlfriend are living together since about 8 years and  they have a little son, almost 3 years old.
But still I had to think about what to wear (very important) and prepare a little suitcase. It is a civil marriage, but lots of people are invited. I certainly can tell you more on Monday ! I didn't have to rake my brain for a wedding gift, as they have already everything, so they asked for an "envelope" ! That's not heavy to carry !

I'm sure you're going to have a WONDERFUL wedding weekend in Amsterdam! Remember how lovely your birthday was there? I can't wait to see you in your outfit and of course, the other guests and the VIP wedding couple. Will Toby be page boy, do you think? You just ENJOY!!! (((Hugs))) Jo

Waiting to hear all the wedding news, hope the weather is kind to the bridal pair. Don't forget to make the envelope nice and fat.

Congratulations to your son and daughter-in-law on taking this step. Hope all goes well and everyone has a great time at the wedding! Glad you had a quieter week between the busy one last week and the busy weekend this week. I hope you'll show us the card next week!

I'm glad those two streets are being repaired! It can be frustrating while the work is being done, but so worth it afterwards.

Congratulations !!
What wonderful news.
Sending them the best of wishes to continue having a wonderful life together.

Now that summer is over we will probably go somewhere too lol
get some air and change of scenery.

You sure made some wonderful memories this year.
Maybe once things settle down we can both get into painting again:)

congratulations on the wedding. Even though things won't change too much it's still a happy occasion. The streets in the town my mother lives in are much the same. In the high summer season as well! I just laugh at the silly ways one has to circle through town and look forward to when it will be finished.
