Linking to Awwww Monday 





I must have been pretty tired because on Saturday morning I slept until 10am, which hasn't happened to me in a long time. Luckily I had already prepared my post and didn't have to do anything else. 

After dinner I went to see Rick and he seemed pretty good. I tried calling our son so Rick could say hello to him but unfortunately it didn't work very well as he was outside playing golf. !

We then sat down with the others in the drawing room and I noticed that there were some new faces. They just served coffee and I got a cup too, I chatted a bit with the nurses and after that, I drove back home. As soon as I arrived it started pouring and a strong wind came up. I woke up several times this night because  the wind was howling around the building and something was rattling in the apartment. After following the sound I realized it was coming out of the box in the wall where the fuses were. It was the door  which made such a noise ! Apparently there the ventilation went through the whole building! I taped the door shut and went back to bed! 

That's what I saw when I entered the living room ! And then it started to hail ! I thought the windows would break ! Poor Rosie made eyes like marbles ! Fortunately nothing was damaged only a flower pot had suddenlyh  wings and was on the other end of the terrace.

Fortunately Adeline and I were invited by Nicole, who looked great despite her brain cancer and not to forget that she is over eighty  ! We had a lot to chat Adeline, has 10 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren the 11th is underway. We teased her that she had increased the Belgian population ! 

Nicole had found her tablet again but forgotten how to use it. I explained her again  and invented a new password because she had forgotten her old one over the years ! Now it works again. 

Her cousin a retired confectionist had baked "Merveilleux" for us which means "Wonderful" and effectively they were excellent ! We ate them all except one which we left for Rick who adores them too ! 

 The afternoon was quickly over and we returned home, just before the next stormy weather arrived !

Rosie observes everything going on just over the her basket border !


  1. Great photos. It is very hard to capture really bad weather with a camera.

    Is that a pig you are leaning on?

  2. So nice you finally had a good visit with hubby. One cherishes the good days so much. Glad the storm didn't do any real damage. We have those here in the summer with hail and wind and it sounds like the entire house may come down.

  3. That cake looks amazing, was it as good as it looks like?

  4. Awww on all the little cute faces. Love the shot of you at the petting zoo. I'm guessing that's what it is.

    Glad you had a good visit with Rick.

    I ate some of the dessert. Yummy.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Gattina. ♥

  5. So glad that you had a good visit with your Rick.

    That sure was a scary times storm! Glad you were OK.

  6. Wow- that was quite the storm! And Rosie looks like she would prefer a sunny day! Glad you had a nice time seeing Rick!

  7. Sound like you need the rest. I hope Rick liked his treat.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  8. I can imagine Rosie would not like that storm.
