give me some color

Above, three pictures of yesterday. A warm and sunny day which I spent 
outside, working in the garden. I picked some of the flowers who are still 
in blossom, to put in a vase.
As yesterday was full of light and colors, today was grey and dark. (pics 
I still have to get used to the winter clock.

I spent the weekend in the Antwerp, with a good friend. Yesterday we 
went to a great concert in the Roma and today we walked trough the 
city, which was extra nice because of "The Big Draw" festival!

a new bookshelf

Days are passing by and the leaves are falling.
Jj and I take our walks with Flynn, trying to teach her basic commands,
which asks a lot of patience from our side.
On the last picture you see a large shelf JJ built in his office last week.
He keeps surprising me.

oma, mali, misao and fukumaru

Since Laura brought her cats to the farm, oma has a new best friend. 
Mali is one of Laura's cats who's always at oma's place. Oma feeds her 
milk and meat. They love each other's company.
Every evening, before oma goes to bed, we hear her opening the front 
door to call loudy "poeoeoeoeoesjeeeee, poeoeoeoeoeoesjeeeeeee..."
Oma and the cat always remind me think of a beautiful photo book I saw
in Japan and I was very happy to find the book here in Belgium! 

The pictures below were taken by Misao's granddaughter. Misao is a 
Japanese woman who found a kitten in the shed . She decided to take 
care of it and now they are inseparable.
I can't stop looking at those wonderful pictures. They move me.
More pics here.

elio looking at flynn

Flynn only barks when she sees a cat. Elio ensures that he's on
a high spot to watch the dog, nonchalant.

stripes and whales

I made the first picture this morning during my walk with Flynn. It 
was raining when we started the walk, but once on our way the sun 
came trough. The afternoon we spent in my workplace. I tried to 
make a nice picture of Flynn and my striped carpet, but she was 
moving all the time.
Yesterday Elise and Reshan have come to visit. They brought me a 
beautiful bottle of wine. I love the label! Thanks E. and R.!
