It’s still freezing in the Netherlands and yes, our drainpipe is still frozen.
I haven’t done the laundry all week (don’t worry, I have plenty of clothes
to wear – not being able to choose the faves from my closet forced me to
make long forgotten picks from my wardrobe. I could even be seen in tights
with a flutter skirt and a woolen cardigan!)
Luckily, the weather forecast predicts warmer temperatures. YEAY!
I know, most of the Dutchies are disappointed that the ‘Elfstedentocht’
(see this post) won’t be held, but I’m not one of them. If it were up to me
it would be raining hot water as soon as possible, preferably right now!
Today is but the same as yesterday… sun, blue sky and freezing.
I wrote this haiku…
Autumn has really set in.
This morning, mist hung over the houses and the sounds coming from
the city sounded muted… In Zeeland, there also is the distance sound
of the fog-horn on mornings like this – that was the only thing missing here.
I like the early morning mist that holds a promise of a beautiful day.
I mean that kind of mist where you can almost feel the sun shine behind.
Mist that dissolves when the sun climbs the sky… and yes, bright light
shines through my window right now.
So let’s make this a beautiful day, starting with a beautiful photo and haiku
Hello Friday, hello sweet ones!
How was your week?
I have been in a creative flow the last couple of days, and man it feels good!
At some point, I was working on 5 pieces at once… not that I can show you all
five pages – some aren’t finished yet – but I do have some things to show.
It’s the second day of my favourite month: September.
I love the smell of Autumn in the air.
I love the sun standing low at the horizon, making long shadows.
I love the quietness of this month.
September always makes me a bit melancholic too.
Somewhat like in the song ‘September morning’ by Neil Diamond.
I’m far from being a fan, but I keep that one CD especially for that song,
and I only play it in September. Once.
(After all, I can’t have melancholy developing into a depression.)
Goodafternoon … WEDNESDAY!
I know, I know.. you probably were wondering where the Tuesday post went…
Sorry, no time yesterday. I had a lot on my mind. Nice things though (see post
on top of my blog and my website)
But here I am, to show you the latest art journal pages
(yep, I also was creative in between… I had sort of an energy rush, YAY!)
