Phew, how amazing is the weather at the moment! I had to do some shopping yesterday, an on the way to the supermarket I took of my jacket, cause it was too warm with it. It felt really like summertime!
Before I left I said to Jan that we could change the bedwash when I was back again, it wouldn;t take much time, but the sweetie said that I could go shopping and in the mean time he would do the bed. The only think I had to do was getting the new duvet covers and undersheet etc. out of the closet, he never can find the right ones LOL! Isn;t that sweet of him? When I came back, he was abou tready, so we could turn the washing machine on.
The rest of the day we just relaxed a bit, it was such nice weather. Jan went out for a little walk and in the mean time I was busy in the garden. Had to split up a few plants and replant them, pulled out some weeds here and there.
Today we have plans to go to a parc nearby, just to be outside for a while. It already should look fine there, with all the fresh green on the trees and there are also some flower gardens, so hopefully I can take some nice pictures there.
We will have to go by foot there(not that it is a very long walk), but today the busses and trams are having a strike between 9.00 till about 15.00 o'clock as a protest to the plans of the council to commercialize the public transport. Most of it is done by one company, and they do a fine job. But the big word used by government and city councils is "to be competitive, which will be better for the public"! So several companies can inscribe and offer there transportation possibilities and price for it. Well, practically nobody is in favour of it. Last week there was a simislar strike in Amsterdam and there will be one also in Rotterdam. Of course at first the only victims of the actions is the citizen, having no transport, but I can understand the reason of the strike very well. Why there always have to be invented changes, when the "old' system works well?
I am not against changes, it's inherent to our time, I know, but not all changes are for the better, believe me!
Oh, I want to warn you for our cats! They are such good protectors of their home LOL! Yesterday early evening Jan heard a strange kind of meowing and some noise in the kitchen. He went looking and saw a big black cat eating the food of our cats in the kitchen.! When Jan arrived there the black cat run out of the cats "door" in the kitchen door to the garden. What a cheeky fellow he was! But the most amazing was, that Brodski was sitting on the terrace,(under the garden table!) watching it all with great interest, but doing NOTHING!. So I went into the garden and chased the cat away who was suddenly trapped between two scary things: Me and Dikkie Dik who came inspecting what happened! The black cat could jump over the fence to the neighbour's garden but Dikkie went after him! I don't know if he catched him, but at least Dikkie is protecting his area. He is the fighter of the two.
I hope we scared the black one(he was HUGE) enough, so he will not come back in the kitchen again.! It wasn;t a stray cat, cause he has a collar and such and looked very well fed, sure, with his nerve he probably has more "restaurants" where he gets extra meals LOL!
I don;t mind if other cats come into our garden, but they have to keep out of my house!
It's about time to open the garden doors, it's looking gorgeous outside, so I think I will have my second coffee there, it's still so quiet there, and with the sun just peeping in on the right spot it should be a little treat for me, looking at my garden, with some birds chirping in the trees around, the best music you can have on a sunny morning.!
Have a marvellous day!
