What a difference already the weather today and yesterday. Yesterday it rained a lot, it was cold, almost looked like it was autumn, but today the temperature is already a lot warmer and even the sun came out. At the moment there is a small thunderstrm and it is raining, but that should stop in a while(hopefully).
Because of the hopeful sight of the sun and the much warmer temperatures, Jan and i set up our new bistro set, it looks so nice. Last week I also bought two small pillows in bright yellow for the chairs(and that is a much better sit-experience, hahaha), and it looks ever so nice and happy. Although I had to ake them off quickly, when the rain started.
Still I am happy with the little table and chairs, it looks nice and I think we will use them a lot . Also the parasol stands near it, so whenever the sun will shine too strong, we have some shadow. All prepared for better days.
It was a quiet week, again. We had Liberation Day on the 5th of May, and usually it is a day people go out and visit markets and fairs or go for a picnic or barbecue, or just visit eachother and have a drink, but of course nothing of that could be done this year. You could say we had some luck that the weather wasn;t really good, so it did burt a bit less not being able to do all those nice things.
I hve a link for you, telling about our Liberation Day, if you are interested in a little bit of history it mightbe interesting.
I am quite busy every day with feeding the birds here, specially the parakeets, they found their way to our garden again, and now at times in the morning and early evening we have seven of them sitting on the rosebow and eating of their bits of apple. They are still a bit shy and fly away when you come too near. Perhaps they will get used to our presence during summer.
Tomorrow I will try to call again the bulky waiste collection service, to see if they can pick up our stuff we prepared. I called last week, but there were so much waiting to be connected that I gave up. Perhaps I will have more luck next week.
And also next week Jan and I want to get us a new phone, which will be quite a physical effort for Jan to go to the shop. He will have to pause during the walk once or twice, so I will have to be patient. But I will be happy if he will be able to go there and choose his own phone. It also will be good for him to be out and see some shops again etc. The guys in the phoneshop are very nice and very helpfull and patient.
So that is about all to tell for now. I hope soon the sun will come out again and w will be able to enjoy some moments on our terrace. It is about time we can spend some time outdoors, our bodies will be happy with it and also our minds. At least next week the temperatures will be aroound normal for the time of year, so perhaps 16-17C, and then hoping real warmer spring weather will arrive finally.
Have all a wonderful week, stay safe,
