back to blogging

Hello everyone! Have you been enjoying these last weeks of July? It felt nice to step away from the computer but I wish I could tell you that I managed to do everything I had planned during my break. Well, sometimes you have a plan but the universe has another one. The first week it sort of rained constantly but we squeezed in a walk by the Moselle River and a nice bicycle ride in the sun. I also got a new haircut and felt like a brand new woman. Then came the weekend with better weather and I hurt my back while lifting a foot rest in the living room. I have no idea how I did that because it isn't even heavy. I felt this shooting pain when picking it up and spent some days after that moving around like an old woman or trying to find a comfortable position on my chaise lounge - quite entertaining for family members, not so much for me. My new books saved me.

Since Thursday a friend of my daughters has been visiting from Antwerp and the younger one goes to Antwerp tomorrow. We will probably pick her up on Saturday so we get an opportunity to say hello to our old city. I hope the sun will be shining because then we can drive to a seaside somewhere in Holland. I'm longing to dip my toes into the sea and just spend a relaxing day at the beach.

Have a beautiful day!
