The last few days it was kind of funny weather, not cold, but very windy, cloudy at times, even the garden was happy, there was some rain. Today it looks better again, much more sunshine, still just a little too much wind for me, but temperature is okay, in our garden it is very nice, at times even kind of hot in the sun(because we have a rather sheltered garden).
But I am not complaining, far from it.
Wednesday I did a control of my weight and whoopieeeeeee, it was kind of party-time.
I just passed 35 kg's! I know, it doesn;t sound much, but I never was a heavy weight. In my very best days, much younger too, (and mostly only in vacation time) I topped on about 40 kg. But if you consider how bad it was when I had the pneumonia (last day at the hospital I had 30,8 at the scales and that really scared me!), I am entitled to be happy. Okay, I am not yet totally there, I want to try to reach perhaps 37 and stay on it, I think that is good enough.
But I did a little jumping just out of joy.LOL!
For several years already there is a colonie of green parakeets in a park not very far from our home.
But now they spread a bit more, I guess, and they come visit our neighbourhood too. They can make an aweful lot of noise, but I just love to see them. Lucky there are still some trees in some gardens, where they can sit down and "chat"with eachother.
I tried to make a photo, which is hard, because my little camera doesn;t have a very powerful zoom, but at least you can see them on the photo.
I have absolutely NO idea how they have come there, well, I probably threw at a time some seeds I collected in the garden to see if that would do better than grow them first in little containers from seed.
Suddenly this year I saw those big leaves growing, and at first I really had no idea what it could be. Almost was at a point to take it out, assuming it only could be a kind of weed. Then I saw the leaves and some buds and realized it could be hollyhock, and well, it is!
Now I will try to get more of them, I still have seeds of one with beautiful double apricot flowers: Oh, if I ever could grow those, it would be fantastic.
But here already the surprise/ones.
Jan yesterday went to his volunteer job, as well as he will go today and tomorrow. I still have dispensation, to recover and don;t have to come back to my coach until beginning of Septemeber.
Oh yes, this morning, looking out of the front window, I saw the new tram passing by. Yes, part of the trams will be replaced by these new ones and I must say they look quite good. They are just testing them on the routes they will drive on, we cannot go with them yet. I think our line will be riding for public at the end of August.
Found you a picture on the net of them.
It is Russian name, I looked it up and the meaning of the name is "quiet and peace". Nice hey?
I first thought to split the download because it is a rather heavy one in MB, then thought "okay, I am only posting once, may be twice a week now, I better give them the whole kit to play with right away".
Hope you will like the colour pallet, I am working on a more summer-like kit, but you know it by now, I don;t know when that one will be ready.
Now it is time to finish, there is a nice quiz on tv at the moment, so the right time to have a sandwich and cup of coffee.
Have a wonderful weekend and till next time, somewhere next week.
