senhor palhaço

Artist Veronik Willems opened a small galerie "Small Art Center", 
behind her house in Berchem. A beautiful place were you can see 
the wonderful work of Dirk Zoete

Yesterday I lay in the sofa, with Jonas by my side. I was trying to 
take a nap but Jonas kept on playing. He was especially interested 
in my face. Feeling his soft baby hands on my nose, cheek,... 
Suddenly he pulled my hair. I said "auw", while I opened one eye. 
He started laughing really loud and so did I.
Motherhood isn't only fun. I'm really tired of these endless sleepless 
nights. But laughing with my son is the most precious thing I have.

The pastures are full of cuckooflowers these days.

My mum is at our place for the weekend. It's strange how much more 
I can do when she's here. We planted flowers in oma's garden, cooked 
meals, cleaned up, gave Jonas a bath,...

two of a kind

Today we visited Omar and Sonny. Aren't they lovely!?

The cherry tree in front of our window has flowers. The sheep of our 
neighbors have lambs. We haven't. Kate's lamb died after five minutes. 
Pipa and Jade turned out not to be pregnant, they were just fat. 
Jonas pulled himself up on his park, today for the first time.

home sweet home

Flynn went crazy when we drove up the yard after ten days. 
Oma was happy that we were back home. So were we. 
Specially Jonas, who finally slept well.
It was a wonderful day!

above the clouds

It's so good to be up in the mountains. Beautiful views, fresh white 
snow and sun above the clouds. I had a scary moment on a very 
steep mountainside. But I survived, thanks to the peptalk from JJ 
and W.

Wonderful paintings from one of my favorite artists, Peter Doig.
1. Ski Jacket, 1994
2. No title, 1997
3. Studie for Ski Jacket, 1994
4. Ski Lift, 1997
