Today Sanne was here again to see if she could be of any help for me, after all I am still ill (as Marion states, as long you have fever, you are ill). And yes, I appreciate it very much that Sanne comes around so often. A very special friend she is indeed.
Today she had two of her dogs with her again. Both are a so called “Drentse Patrijshond” (a Dutch pointer breed). They are good trained and well behaving dogs. On the picture below is one of Sanne’s
dogs with the sweet name “Femke”. The picture was made somewhere last summer when we visited the beach of Zandvoort.
I really like these dogs. Yes, I do like dogs… when they are properly trained and have learned how to behave (and no, you don’t learn a dog something by beating and “breaking” him). I also do not like all breeds of dogs. I don’t the breeds that are very unnatural… like boxers and bulldogs (many breathing problems there).
I like more pointers and collies, but that is me :P (Of course there are more dog breeds I like then only those).
Whenever Sanne was here, I have to think of the dogs that I owned in the past or maybe I should said, with who I shared my house :P. Bas (a half breed “Friese Stabij”), Bommel (a not completely pure Jack Russell), Binke (“Friese Stabij”) and Boukje (also a Friese Stabij). If I am informed well, only Boukje is alive and must be on age now (of the others I know that they don’t live anymore).
There are times that I would love to have a dog again. At the same time I realize that this would not be a good thing. For a normal working day I am around 9 to 10 hours per day away from home.
Apart from that I (we… this goes for Marion as well) have chosen for a life with as less as possible dependencies. The freedom we both have grown into we want to maintain as much as possible.
Sure, certain dependencies will always be there. Even the LAT-relation of Marion and me has certain dependencies and that is of course logical… without any dependencies there cannot be a relationship at all. But compared with the more traditional relations, we have much more freedom and less dependencies. And we are both very happy this way.
And lets be honest, a dog would create a big dependency. With the way I am currently living there is no room for such dependency. Again, this is me!!!!
Anyway, I really liked the visit of Sanne. It is a good feeling that people care for you and are willing to invest time in you.
Sanne was so kind enough to drive to town and do some groceries for me. And as she said, it was also for her fun to look around in the shopping centre of Heemskerk. According to her we have some nice and interesting shops over here.
After the visit to me she went with her dogs to a beach for a nice walk (I believe the beaches of “Wijk aan Zee”, but I am not sure).
This evening I watched on the couch with a blanket over me (darn fever) the latest Harry Potter-movie “The Deathly Hallows – Part 2″…
I got this BluRay as gift from Sanne. As we just today discussed this movie she knew I hadn’t seen it yet. When she saw it in a shop in Heemskerk, she considered it a nice gift for me. And right she was. I was very happy with it.
When I saw this BluRay, I am happy again to be able to play BluRay-discs… what an graphic quality, what a great sound. When I see a movie like this, I know why I invested all this money into this Pioneer set. It proofs it self again and again.
The movie itself? I have a weak spot for Harry Potter movies. I enjoyed the movie, but I have to be honest. I could understand why some people would find this movie a turn down.
Okay, time to try to get some sleep again and lets hope this fever really starts to drop!!!
