1. Besides doing some housework, I recovered from my weekend and kept quiet, I had caught a little cold and the medication I took made me tired. From a movie I watched on TV I saw the beginning and suddenly the end, I had fallen asleep !

2. We had wonderful weather up to 25° (77 F) ! Dominique my neighbor came for a visit and brought her birthday gift for Mr. G, a beautiful Ferrari key holder, he was very happy as he collects everything he can get from Ferrari ! I have my cat collection he has his Ferrari collection but there is still space in the house.


My friend Nicole's dog Charlie had surgery, a claw was taken out, which was crooked and on the other paw he had a nail infection. He looked so cute in his booties but wasn't happy at all to wear them !


As he couldn't walk so much we went to the La Hulpe castle walked a little around and then enjoyed the sunshine on the terrace of the restaurant. Despite the fact that it was in the middle of the week there were many people there are also spring holidays in Belgium.

5. When we returned to my car, I noticed that I had lost my car keys ! I emptied my purse, looked in all pockets, nothing. Fortunately I always have my spare keys with me just in case ! So at least we could return home.

As soon as I was home I called the restaurant and half an hour later they called me back, somebody had found them and given to the barman.

The next day at 10.30 am I walked the long way to the restaurant which seemed to me longer than the day before, as cars are not allowed inside the park and picked up my keys. There was already a school class sitting in the grass and quite a lot of joggers.

It wasn't exactly my time for walking so when I arrived at my car I was tired for the whole day !!

But  I was happy to have my keys back !

Yes, modern car keys are not cheap to replace. It is not like the days of old when you could go to key cutter and have a copy made.

Glad you had a spare set - and glad you found your originals. That's a sick feeling to lose your car keys.

La Hulpe castle is so lovely. Your spring looks quite ahead of ours. I'm looking forward to green grass!

Happy weekend!

That's a good idea to keep a spare set of keys. I'm glad the originals were found and returned.

Your weather sound perfect!

Poor Charlie. Hope he heals well and quickly.

The castle looks like a lovely place to visit.

Glad there was a helpful soul who turned in your car keys.

I think yesterday was the first day we were up in double figures: 10-13 degrees. I hope it will go up and up now.

Gattina, I am forever misplacing my car keys, but they are always somewhere in my purse! Ha ha ha. Sorry to see that little "pup in boots," what a sad thing. It's rather stylist, though. We had our first 75-degree day (I don't know Celcius, sorry), and it was heaven. Everyone was outside! Thx for the sweet pics. Amy

Oh I'm glad someone turned in your car keys for you! The castle looks like a nice place to visit and look at those blue skies and sunshine!

I'm glad your keys were found so quickly. And at least you had pleasant weather for walking back through the castle grounds the next day.
Charlie does look cute in the booties, but don't tell him I said so!
