Hello there on this rainy morning… oh yes, the rain keeps pouring down while I look back on a fabulous and sunny weekend. My son and his girlfriend came to visit us and we had such wonderful days! We went for a long walk on Saturday, exploring the town and on Sunday we went to the coastline and again walked one-and-a-half-hour along the seaside. Here’s a photo taken on top of the dunes…
… and look how sunny the day was! I wore my new sun glasses and my son took this photo. You can see him, mirrored in the glasses. The girl in the back is his girlfriend.
Today is no day to go outside so I sit at my desk to work on the ‘project’ I started yesterday: re-binding my “poesie-album.”
A so-called “Poesie album” is what you – abroad – probably call a “friendship book.” A little book that you give to friends and family to write a poem (or something nice) in. I started this book in 1976 and it is still going strong… the last entry is from my former neighbour in Eindhoven (dated 2016.)
After all these years (decades!) the book almost fell apart so I decided to cut out the pages and rebind it. I sew plastic folders in the right shape, that will hold all the former pages, and I plan to add extra pages of thick paper so the book can take another round of friends writing in it. I hope it will last at least another forty years.
I still am not completely settled in my new atelier but I did some art journaling last week… here’s my latest page.
Thanks for visiting my blog today, I really appreciate it! Have a nice day, whatever the weather!
