Like walking? Try this!

Goodmorning everybody!

Yesterday was the start of a yearly event in The netherlands, I think it;s known world-wide. It's called "De vierdaagse van Nijmegen" (sort of The 4 days of Nijmegen). It's an event for the real lovers of a severe walk! It's 4 days of walking and you can pick out your distance. You can do 30, 40 or 50 km. a day! This year again almost 41.000 people are taking part of it, not all will finish it, but still a lot will and receive a little medal. I read that the oldest participant is 92 years old!!!

From all over the world participants are coming to Nijmegen to walk the 4 days in a row. And at the end there will be a big party for all. Every on tv there is an item about it and I admire all the people that take part and it looks (and is, as you hear all the comments) just a big event of comradship and understanding and support among all.

I wish them all good luck!

So this afternoon it's a birthday visit for us. We have it easy because we'll have only to cross the road and walk a few meters. I am very cuirous to see what she will think of the little bag of presents.

So it may happn that I will be a bit later with the freebielist.

As every evening it was rabbit hopping again yesterday, and oh, how happy the little creature is during is "walk-out". It is to notice too buy the amount of little "pearls"he is leaving behind! Hahaha, fortunately they are hard, so easy to shuffle up. Jan took advantage of the moment and cleaned and refreshed the cage . Only that is a tricky thing to do, as he walks around a bit and so, he always has to keep his eye on the ground around his feet, trying not to step on the rabbit! It's a strange thing, but as soon as one of us is walking around he is following you all the way.

Oh, we got a phonecall from Heidi yesterday from France. Apparantly it's not all bright and joyful, because the evening before she had to go to hospital there, seeming she had aking of overpressure. They changed the needle from the box she is carrying around all the time with her medicin, and all came to normal again. But she was very tiered of it and had to rest almost all day. Let's hope she'll recover soon and that they still can have a nice holiday.

That's about all today to tell you. Today we start with a kit I split up in two parts. It's named "Silk Trail of China". I will give ou the preview of the whole kit, so you can see what you get LOL.Have a great day and off I am!

What a beautiful kit, Kyra. The papers are just gorgeous. The photo of the walk is amazing. I think it's wonderful when so many people can come together to do something like this.

Have a fantastic day my friend, Edna.
