WEEKEND OCTOBER 13
This is the weather map of Belgium ! In October 24°C (75F) in some places even more ! Although everybody says that it is unusual which is true I don't complain !
and Rosie either
Our Electricity company had informed us that on Monday we will be in the dark, which means no electricity at all in the morning from 8 am til 1 pm ! When you get an information like this you realize how depended we are on electricity. We have to open all the shutters before 8 am, not open the freezer and coffee ?? Do I have to heat water over a candle ? I will make the coffe before 8 and put it in a thermos ! But the worst was organize my weekend. All computer work has to be done before Monday.
Therefore I started on Saturday to prepare my post for Our World Tallinn (Estonia) and a few other posts for my photo blog. In the afternoon I had to buy some strange things for my new painting technique "pouring" i.e. a straw, (there were only a package of 200 available !) a scraper, cooking paper, plastic cups and a little pot which doesn't let in air. I found a little box for kids with "Cinderella" on it, which will do the job and keep my colors fresh.
On my way back I stopped at a friend and we talked about our forthcoming exhibition, because she is in charge of the shopping of drinks and snacks for our visitors.
The Belgian Tourist Federation for Brabant/Wallon has sent me the pictures on which I pose for the next year's brochure.
Sunday I went for a little walk to the market it was such a nice weather and as it was voting day in Belgium for new mayors there was a lot of traffic on the roads, worse than during the week and the market was packed too. I didn't find anything to buy and returned home.
The afternoon I continued my computer work but also spent some time in the basement to choose the paintings I need for the exhibition. My neighbor came over and asked me if I could take care of her two cats, over next weekend, of course I do that with pleasure. It's not a big work I have to go there once in the morning and once in the evening, the cats have a catflap and can go in and out just like they want.
