Hello my lovelies,
Friday has come round again and it is time to look at the positives from our week.
Let me show you this card I received in February. It comes from Germany and it shows part of the Sperberheiner dam.
This is what was printed on the back of the card:
Being Dutch I am used to all sorts of dykes and earth works to channel water, so I was pleasantly surprised that in Germany they have also been doing this for many centuries.
here is another photo of a different part of the dyke (from Wikipedia):
The stamps are beautiful. They show Gartenreich Dessau-
In the evening I like to sit in the evening sun by the front door. My friend was walking the dog (and her grand daughter). She knew she would find me there. Because of hubby's chemo (compromised immune system) we are not having visitors, but a chat by the door is fun. She brought me a plant and a little tortoise as a belated birthday present, and hubby made a 30 second appearance for the photo.
On Sunday we watch two different church services and generally just relax. I watched the Downton Abbey film on Amazon Prime Spain. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
On Monday we managed to get an appointment with the director of the hospital because we wanted to personally thank him for the care and compliment him on a well run hospital. We had brought a letter and a gift.
I had seen that they were putting in new lights in the streetlights in our neighborhood. On Tuesday morning they did the lamp in front of our house.
I went to the market and bought some veg. I don't know what it is called in English. I think it might be chard. I use it in my minestrone. Ah and I also bought a nice top for 5 Euros. Nice with black trousers.
Hubby was feeling well on Wednesday and I joined him for an hour at our little plot. Our plants are doing fine.
In the evening Juan the window man came to fit the new doors that we had ordered. As you can see in the photo top right, there is this space between the front door and the rest of the house that is just crying out for a door.
I am very pleased with the result (and the quality). In winter it will be a place where we can hang our coats.
Thursday it rained and we didn't go out at all. Hubby did all sorts of little jobs and I indulged in my favorite activity: I baked. I made a cinnamon-raisin bread at hubby's request. And later I realized it was day 10 in my Herman (sweet) sourdough feeding regime and that means I bake something. I found a recipe for Herman cinnamon rolls and decided I'd give it a try. They turned out beautifully!
Finally, I have had my call to be vaccinated. I'm going on Saturday evening at 5 past 8. As far as I know we are getting the Pfizer vaccin. But I'll let you know once I've had it.
That was my week. How was yours? Come and join us at Annies at A Stitch In Time or at Virginia's at Rocking Your World Friday.
As usual, I will add some funnies at the end, but for now, Have a lovely weekend.
