A little update of  the non-blogging-weeks.

There was sun, family, good food and lots chocolate.

We celebrated Poppemie's 9 birthday with homemade cake and cookies.  She received the card that I won from Juffrouw Sanseveria.  I did pimp it up a little with a picture of her favorite singer and I'm glad to say that the card still worked.  Maybe it didn't inflate completely, but the element of surprise was definitely there.  She thought it was great!

A 'new' secondhand dress.  The result of a fine day of shopping with my best friend.
And a new bag, still under construction, as you can see.

After many months the chair is finally finished!  I gave it to my mum and she was very pleased with it.

And just because it's too cute to pass by:  Poppemie's new puppy.

And then....

.....there was light!

We installed the skylight yesterday.  
Now the horrendous sanding job awaits us.

Sunday Run.

 In the last couple of weeks, I started running a bit more and exploring some new routes. 
Today it was time for the 10 K & again I was amazed by the gorgeous decor I have the privilege to run through.  Inspired by others, I thought I'd share some of my Sunday trip.

I do have to mention that when I speak of running, I actually mean jogging.  Real slow that is. I think snails have passed me. But every time I think no woman has ever gone this slow, I just channel my inner Monica: 
'At least I'm doing it!'


For a real class act, I happily refer you to this guy.  Talk about persistence.
