Award time and more!

Goodmorning everybody!

We had a nice weekend, Saturday morning Jan had to work, but then he was free the rest of the weekend.
It was still nice weather, although much lower temperatures.
We even had a thunderstorm yesterday evening, with lightning and thunder and even some rainshowers.
There isn't too much to tell, well, nothing real special, although there is something I can tell you from the Olympics. We have won two medals there, a silver for the swimming team on the 4x100 mtr. freestyle estafette for women and a golden one on the cycling event for women, on the road.
Marianne Vos was of a special level there, really a worthy winner of the event.

We did watch a lot of the Olympics, and did you see the opening ceremony on Friday evening??? I found it amazing and wonderful, specially the 3 first parts . Wow, the Brits had really used their imagination and skills. I had a great time watching it.

This morning I read the blog of Edna and she had some wonderful news!! She has a new dog in her life, named Pogo, the sweetest little tea-cup Yorkie you could wish for!!! She has some pictures of him on her blog, but I cannot resist showing you already one of them.
So meet Pogo, Edna's new companion, and I hope they will spent many wonderful years together!

My friend Edna has given me an award, which I have to pass on. Thanks Edna, of course, and now the hard stuff: obeying the rules, which are not as easy as you should think.!

3) Name 5 things you love
4) Name 5 things you hate (or dislike)
5) Pass it on to 5 other bloggers and let them know by a comment.

5 of my most fabulous moments in life:
Winning the pianocompetition from all schools and playing with the Residentie Orchestre in a big hall.
The cruise my parents and I made  on a Russian ship
A helicopter flight I made with my parents over the Caucasus Mountains.

My wedding day, specially the fact that my niece from France came over, and here husband who made a great photoshoot of the whole day, being the only family present on that day, I will always be so greatful for that.

All things of nature, curled up cosy on the couch, watching a good detective, cooking, the designing of scrapkits, and all things creative, my pets, all friends I've met during my life till now, of course the blogging, which opened another world to me,.

5 things I hate, or better said I dislike:
Dishonesty, intolerance, discrimination, touching worms when I work in my garden (yak), see people around the world who have hunger and diseases and knowing that that shouldn;t be necessary, the terrible way some people treat animals.

Bloggers I pass the award on, for different reaons:

Good morning Kyra. Gosh, my mind has been in a dither these past couple of days. Pogo has been keeping me busy, and I've been forgetting everything I'm supposed to do. lol.

Wow! You played with the orchestra in a big hall! I am so impressed! I love the piano, although I never learned how to play it.

It's time now to get ready to go shopping. Pogo is wanting a few new things of his very own. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
