Yesterday I didn't post. That's because yesterday can be described with just one photo and it looks like this:
It rained all day! So I took the most of it and slept so late my back actually hurt like hell after I got up (it did pass after a few hours, but I moved around the house like a little old lady, well, more like a big old lady).
The rest of the day I spent mostly on the couch with a double pair of socks on and wam clothes and my e-reader and lots of tea for company. It was wonderful! I wouldn't have been so happy about it if it had been like that all week, but one lazy day felt like a wonderful gift from the universe.
Today the weather was not as great as thursday, but good enough to go on another long bike ride. And of course I took a lot of pictures again and here's a selection of today's finest:
|One of the many streams I photographed this week.|
|That dark sky threatened with rain, but didn't deliver, thank god.|
|Bridges among the green are just so idyllic.|
|A building hidden behind such beauty makes the imagination go wild.|
|Vorden Castle (Kasteel Vorden), one of many around here.|
|Also at Vorden Castle, from the side.|
|One windmill to keep the Dutch stereotype alive.|
|I'm lucky the corn is not full grown yet, or I wouldn't get such vistas.|
|I can't tell you how many farm houses like this I snapped. I want to live in all of them.|
Well, that was my final outing here. Just after I came back the sky burst open with one big shower, so I have been pretty lucky not to get wet at all today. I've also started packing up the stuff I won't need anymore and have put all my shopping loot into one big bag and sighed in relieve that it all fit. ;-)
Now I will relax for one more night with a book on my sisters' couch. My art supplies have been packed already too, but I did manage to do a couple more small collages today, so I'm pleased with that as well.
Tomorrow around this time I will be back home and hopefully find my cat well. Then I can look forward to one more week off work that will be spent on my own island, so I can't complain. Life is ridiculously good right now. I wish this vacation could last forever.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and I hope you enjoyed my time away from home with me!
