This week, I found something back that I’d thought was gone: to be lost
in a story. The last days, I found myself in another time and another country,
far away from here. Now and then I woke up as if from a trance, because there
was coffee to be poured, or food that had to be cooked – but I was only half
in this world. In my mind, I galloped with daring knights or I sailed on a boat
on a lake where – behind the mists – Avalon waited for me.
I was Druid, Goddess, Knight and Minstrel.
Sorry dear ones, I wasn’t in this world.
I sat in the Spring sun and I read.
I got a tan without noticing it, and I found a long-lost treasure:
to travel to other times and places and be gone from this world.
I am back to the one I once was – a reader.
Reading was a big part of me that I had lost and now it’s back
and I feel complete again!
Here’s the evildoer:
Don’t be afraid – I have not forgotten you.
I left my book downstairs on the table.
It’s Friday, and as a faithful and brave knight – I won’t forsake you.
Here are some list-pages!
List 17 – Words that are hard to spell
I’m very keen on spelling mistakes and I’m pretty good at writing correctly
– in the Dutch language that is. Therefor, writing in English keeps me humble
’cause I know I make a lot of grammatical ánd spelling mistakes.
There are lots of words that I have trouble with writing and my list would be
endless, but this one word seems to really haunt me! Misc E ll A neous.
I just keep on forgetting where the E and the A are supposed to be…
although I looked it up a hundred times; it just won’t stick to my mind…
List #18 – Road trip must-haves
Most of you know: I don’t like ‘going on vacation’.
I don’t take road trips for fun, but I did a lot of traveling years ago.
“That was long ago and far away” – and a complete different story,
but anyway: I made my list with those trips in mind.
I always had at least the above things with me, and I still find these
the most important things to take with me when I unexpectedly should
go on a road-trip…
List #19 – Recipes I want to try
I gave this a little twist 😉
It’s clear that cooking is not my hobby!
Today is the last day that temperatures will be high enough
to sit outside in the back yard.
Today is the day that I will finish my book.
My paint and brushes are sadly weeping when I pass them by…
but I’m planning a party with them this weekend.
They will have to wait one more day.
I can’t resist Morgaine’s call that comes to me through the mists of Avalon.
I want to know – No, I HAVE to know what happens with Arthur and Lancelot.
I’m under a spell. Another afternoon of reading, and the spell will be broken
with a big sigh.
see you next week dear ones!
