Linking to  AWWWW MONDAY







On Saturdays I avoid the shops as they are so full of people who work during the week and only have time for shopping on Saturdays. 

The shops close at 9 pm at the latest and on Sundays they are closed anyway. Therefore I changed my habits to winter time and now my brave Maria comes on Saturday mornings and cleans the apartment and I do some private paperwork which is still a lot, due to Covid delays (everything which doesn't work is the Covid's fault) and I have to check everything. 

In the afternoon Myriam came and helped me with the curtains one has lost some hangers and it really looked awful. We also checked the winter program of our Bus excursions, but the program was rather poor only one we liked and that was the visiting the Christmas market in Aachen (Germany). 

In Waterloo too was nothing special to do, not even a film we liked and we finally enjoyed the sunshine on my terrace where it was so warm that I still didn't have to turn the heating on ! It was 25°C in the living room and the window doors wide open.

 Fall hasn't really moved in because the trees around are still green.

Sunday our son came for a visit and we took Mr. G. to "his" Italian restaurant, where he could eat his favorite noodle plate.

and while he watched his Formular 1 together with Rosie, my son put the summer stuff on the terace together and covered it with a plastic.

I was very happy about it, because it's a quite heavy work,  now it's done ! And as it was so warm again, we sat outside on my rocking chairs which usually are in the living room. Now fall and winter can move in and quickly out, I wait for spring !!

It was a nice day tiring for Mr. G and he was happy when my son drove him back "home". 


  1. That is nice your son can come and help you out and you got to take your hubby out for some food and family time. Mom has been to Aachen many times to the Christmas market. It is a nice one. Her sister in law used to live in the area.

  2. Great photos. I love it.

  3. Awww on the kitty. So precious.

    I'm glad you had a nice day with your son and hubby. I love Italian food so much. I've not been to a restaurant in so very long.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Gattina. ♥

  4. Now we are starting to see more fall colours, but it has been late this year.

  5. Ah, so nice to have a helpful son!! Who is the pretty white kitty?? Looks like he/she enjoyed the pets and scritches;)
    Glad that Mr G had an outing to his fave eating place...and hooray for nice warm weather for a spell. Enjoy it while you can:)

  6. It's so nice to have extra help! Hugs to you and your family!
