Sunday afternoon

Because I finished writing my thesis this week, I gave myself the weekend off, school wise.

Today has been a lovely lazy Sunday. We slept in, had a slow breakfast and then decided we would do nothing today. Well, hardly anything, anyway. So we spent the afternoon sitting outside on our terrace, enjoying the lovely view of a freshly mown field. The cats had fun chasing after mice and birds and we read our books. It was almost weird to just sit and be lazy, it's been so long since I've done that! A while ago that was all I could do, but then I couldn't enjoy it. Now I had the choice so I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Yesterday I worked in the garden, pulling weeds and watering. The beans are little plants, the shallots as you can see have started growing greyish green leaves and last night we had the first two strawberries! I just took a picture of one of the plants and noticed a few other red ones.

Oh, how I love the summer! Three more weeks of school and then I'll be off for about two months. But today was a nice little foreshadow, I can feel my batteries recharging...

Ah bijna vakantie dus, dat is mooi. Ga je nog ergens heen op vakantie (of huwelijksreis, as you wish)?

Lekker he om af en toe even in de tuin te genieten van alles om je heen. Onze aardbeitjes zijn niet opgekomen dit jaar, maar jullie kunnen lekker genieten :)

Maar je hebt ook een geweldige tuin (park, stuk grond, wei, heide, graasland, het is in ieder geval mega)! Kom ik aan met mijn ienie mini strookje land. Maar goed, dat is ook wel weer stoer in onze stadstuin :-)

Ok.. ik voel me al weer beter, maar dat kan morgen zo veranderen :-(

Amanda & Paul uit Engeland hebben in ieder geval bevestigd dat zij komen. Geweldig leuk. Echt jammer dat ik jouw Amerikaanse familie niet kan ontmoeten.
