We've made it to the "concert".

Goodmorning everybody!
In the morning Jan went to the check up with his doctor in hospital, and all was well, he only  has to watch the amount of salt again a bit. Not a big problem, just have to use a bit less when I am cooking.
And I am happy that he is doing well!

Told you, that Monday evening we had to go to Séverine's first performance with the flute. We went a part by tram and then walked for about 10 minutes to arrive at the school.

I have to admit, it was a bit of a loooong seat, LOL! Although there were some really nice performances. And it's just so sweet to see the youngest children playing at their flute with such a serious expression on their faces!
Séverine did very well, she was in a little group, playing together, but also had a "solo"with two others in the piece, and did that well too( at least they had to play about 10 notes as solo LOL!). But we all have to start somewhere, isn;t it?
I have made a few pictures, but they didn;t come out very well, could be that the flash of my little camera wasn't strong enough(we were sitting rather far from the stage, but it was a good place to overlook everything) and they pics are also a bit fuzzy. But I have one nice picture of the little rascal too, at the street, after the concert.
She just finished a demonstration of her judo capacities to Jan. Yes, she also had an exam of Saturday and has already the blue slip(not the belt yet, she's only doing it for two months now), which ment she jumped three other slips already, so she's good at it!!! The teacher already asked Heidi and Danny if she could go to training for real competitions!! Must have to do something with the fact, that when she was smaller, I always did some "karate"with her, (we called it then "Playing Chinese"), who knows!
So here is Séverine then:

After the performances, we just talked a few moments with Heidi, Danny and some family of both, who also came to support and then it was such a lovely evening, that we decided to walk home. It just took us a bit more than half an hour.

Yesterday Jan came almost running into the room with the news of the day: he discovered already two timy little tomatoes on one of his plants. So I went looking right away(we must keep the husband enthousiastic, LOL) and yes, there are coming tomatoes!!!!
Perhaps you still know he also planted some summerflowers. Okay, some of them frew up, but snailes seem to like the leaves of summerflowers very much, so they look a bit shabby. First Jan wouldn;t believe it were snailes but finally he went looking in the evening in the weekend and saw the snails marching on to the sunslowers. After experiencing the "march of the snails" he now goes into the garden every evening with a little flashlight to catch them and throwing them far away into the garden. He doesn;t want to be snail-killer, he says, so if they want to have a nice meal they will have to work for it, and perform a marathong for it ROLF! So yesterday evening late we both went into the garden for a snail hunt, can you imagine??????????
And we did catch a lot, worst are the naked snails, but I have some disposable plastic gowns and they are very practical for it( cause the slime is very hard to get rid of of your hands, yak).
I think you can call us a bit disturbed, doing it, but we have fun, like little children, hahahahaha.

Okay, time for some serious sutff, have to do some shopping today, again, some things are running out soo fast, unbelievable. But first here is the last two parts of the Mother Goose serie.
Have a great day, take care, till Friday!

What good news for Jan! There is natural salt in most foods, so I don't add salt to my cooking. If I did, my feet would be big as balloons.

I share Jan's excitement about the little tomatoes on the plants. We have some tiny tomatoes too. Pretty soon, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm!

Congratulations to Severine for her first performance. You must be very proud of her.

Now I have to get ready to leave for an appointment. You have a great day my friend. Hugs, Edna B.

LOL - I can just imagine 2 "little" kids in the garden collecting bugs. Thanks for the chuckle!

Good morning Kyra:)
So happy that Jan is in good shape.I can't imagine eating without salt...but sometimes you can add spices to replace the salt for flavor.:)
What? No pics of the two of you playing ..Catch the Snails?.hehe Is there an information site on the web that could let you know how to keep them away from your plants? Just a thought.:)
So happy for Séverine too.Glad the concert went well for her. Christy ( daughter) played the flute in school too.She worked her way up to first seat in High School.She started playing in the fifth grade. She doesn't play it much now but has it displayed on the wall in her bedroom.I love it when I hear her playing it though.:)
Hope you have a wonderful day and be sure to get some sleep for those nightly snail hunts.LOL
