A walk and the market and the garden

Friday evening i walked along the Maas with a friend. It was still warm, with a nice wind. We sat on a bench and drank the ginger lemonade. Not too fast! It was spicy. We talked. Walking back we saw the sun setting down quietly. Beautiful. We ended up in my place, where we sat on the balcony. He drank some green tea with jasmine, i drank a glass of white wine. I showed him the drawing i am still working on. Not finished by far.

Saturday morning i went to the farmer’s market. My usual trip for the past two years or so. A group of between five and ten people come around. We talk about all sorts of things. The smurfs was one topic this Saturday. Yay 🙂

Once a month or every two weeks – not sure to be honest – there is music. This time it was gypsy music with a violin, accordion, bells around the ankle and tap dancing. Lovely.

Sunday afternoon i walked up to the garden. I had some empty pots i threw in the glass bucket. I forgot my kitchen stuff bucket. Grrrr! I need to go tomorrow and empty it. Stupid of me to forget.

I didn’t work in the garden. I made some coffee and read a bit more in my book. I did make some photos. The flowers are so lovely.

I do feel a bit unbalanced. My life right now is a bit much. Let’s hope for some change within the next few months. Finger crossed!

I just spend some time thinking about the post for tomorrow. Nothing came up. Of course, i could go for the usual things i do when i don’t have a clear idea of what i want to show or tell. I could throw the I Ching. Make a photograph. Draw something.

It won’t do. Not now.

So here it is. Nothing significant of me right now. Nothing i want to tell you. I’d rather go on reading, watch a bit of youtube, go on watching the third season of Dark on Netflix. Watch some television. Things like that.

A busy Sunday

This morning i watched some television. Beechgrove. Saturday Kitchen Best Bites. Het Filosofisch Quintet.

This afternoon i cleaned up the upper cupboards of the kitchen.

I am watching Glastonbury Tea Time Legends right now. Well, sort of. I just took the photograph you see at the top of this post. I hear the music and singing in the background. I did want to get this post out of the way. I got really happy while watching it: Kylie, Lionel Richie, Brian Wilson, Al Green, Johnny Cash, among others. Made me feel very happy!

Later on i will watch the Great British Bake Off and the Great British Sewing Bee. After that i will most likely go to sleep. Maybe i will watch an episode of Dark on Netflix once i’m done. Not sure yet.

So no, i rather watch a bit of David Bowie on the BBC. Great!

Have a good day 🙂

What to say?

I took some photographs in the garden today. I just watched them on my computer. They are not sharp. Not good.

I did a search for ‘sense of purpose’. Some interesting articles. I also searched on youtube. Watched a clip with the Dalai Lama. But nothing stuck. Too many job related articles. Too many retirement articles. Not good enough for me. No.

So i just sat in front of my computer. Looking outside. Feeling the wind softly flowing around me. The window in my room is wide open. The door of my room is open, the door in the kitchen is wide open. Nice.

I will be staying here for a couple of months. I like it here. I like the room. That my landlord is away for the weekend mostly is really nice too. He knows that.

I think this evening i will be watching a movie. Yeah. Not sure which one. Hmmm. Contagion. That will do.

Back tomorrow. I will keep you posted.
