Then I googled on YouTube for the Hotel and it was directly at the lake in this charming little town. Suddenly I felt much better, jumped on the phone, and booked for me a room ! Then I got the detailed program and it was really interesting. So much to see !
In the afternoon Adeline came over to say hello to Rosie and I showed her where I would go. Normally she also goes with us, but this was too far for her. She had always traveled with her husband, even to Thailand, but now as a widow she only stays in Belgium or Holland, not far away from home !
The next day I wanted to visit Nicole, but it rained so much that I preferred to stay home, but I called her. She was a little depressed, because her grandson had taken her to see her cat who lives now with her daughter and the cat didn't even notice her ! I tried to comfort her saying that a cat is not a dog and is more attached to the house were she lives and probably she feels happy there and she goes so well along with the little dog. She should be happy that Isis found such a nice home. But she thinks she can go back home again and the cat won't go with her. Of course she can never return home, but I preferred to say nothing not to hurt her.
The birthday gift for grandson Toby had arrived and I had to pick it up in a supermarket. We do it the modern way, he sends me the link to the store with the things he wants to have (only one of course, he is modest) and he had chosen a headphone and a dart game, in the hope that he will get the two, and of course he will ! I picked up the headphone, made my shopping and quickly returned home. The darts were out of stock. Now I have to choose another gift with him, he will come over the weekend.
I had bought a straw wreath and decorated it with dry red berries. I hang it on the white door which separates me from my neighbor and which always looked so dull. I also prepared the terrace for winter, I managed to put the chairs under the table but the plastic cover which I would have to put over the whole thing was too heavy for me, so I wait for grandson or son to help me.
The trees haven't lost their leaves yet, I compared the pictures of this year with the once from last year and stated that last year the trees were more naked and had lost their leaves more than this year.
