hares, dogs, butterflies
am also working on my OBK book, writing new chapters and making a sort of mock-one-off version of what may one day become an actual book, early days, so for now no images to share!
on the wall together with several other animals, speaking of.....
went to visit you-know-who, they move about a bit too fast for me and camera;-)
some of the things I've been up to these past weeks:
visited hugely fascinating exhibition in Artis Micropia, together with my sister, all about microscopically small organisms, and possible uses such as mycelium for making furniture and items of clothing
We spent a couple of days in Wismar on the German coast, former DDR territory, a lovely break for just us two before Digger's arrival next weekend.
On our drive North the husband came up with a new name: he noticed a campervan with Charlie Brown and Snoopy painted on the rear end, looked at me and suggested 'Snoopy' would be a perfect name for the new dog! Yes I know cute ánd corny, I'm tempted not just because I used to collect them as a teenager, gosh that was a long time ago, it just sounds so sweet and in Dutch it is exactly that: snoep=candy, 'snoepie' is an endearment, like 'sweetie'. As I continue to roll it around in my mouth I do sense this will be his nickname, with Digger Skogaholms as his official name.
toilet sign in Itzehoe, more corniness but hey it makes me smile
the sea, Insel Poel peninsula
our airbnb, quirky and full of surprises
you know you're in the right place with a toilet roll holder like this!
Once back home we went to an old highschool friend's 60th birthday celebration party right in the centre of Amsterdam, which is where she lives these days, got to see some Old friends and meet New Folks. I seem to be all over the place, I'm not on a day to day basis, or that's not how it feels, but as I'm blogging more and more bubbles up and I realise I actually do get to wander around a bit.
Meanwhile in our Summer garden, a couple of Turtle doves have discovered our birdbath by Hank Beelenkamp, a piece I was allowed to have from our parents' garden, seeing as we are the only ones with a decent-sized garden:
I go for a swim every day with the dogs,
Django's used to it, Viggo seems half-surprised by my bobbing-bodyless-head
may life offer you surprises sun and laughter this Summer
