September sun

Last weekend, the weather was so nice, and as I was feeling a lot better, I installed myself in the garden with my ripple blanket. I 'm making this blanket for my son who is studying in Ghent now (art school). He is living there during the week with three friends.

Rippling brings me in a zen state of mind...

With the company of one of my chickens, everything felt perfect.

Can you tell I'm happy to be back?

Been away, but not really

For the past two weeks, I have been in a lot of pain, day and night. It took me a lot of visits to the doctor, having acupuncture, going to two hospitals to find out it was a nerve in one of my teeth.

When you're in pain, it's hard to concentrate on other things. I tried to read a bit,

but most of the time I was staring out of the window or looking at my bedroom walls, feeling very sorry for myself.

Now I'm better. I really feel the need to go outside, and just enjoy simple things without having pain!

This is the reason why I haven't been blogging a lot lately: we are rebuilding our living and dining room, and having a new terrace. So for the time being, we try to keep up with our daily life in the rooms that are left.
Not so easy with a lot of computer work to do, children starting a new schoolyear, ...
Maybe I'll buy me a tiny house like this one!

The cats are making the best of it, Punt is rather interested in everything that happens.

He even has his own Walk of Fame now!

A few glances of red in my house & garden...
