This weekend was concerning the weather a close disaster. It almost rained all the time and the times it was dry were too short to do anything outside. This kind of weather makes you want to stay inside. But being all the time inside doesn’t make you feel well either.
Then suddenly after some heavy rain early this afternoon the sky started to get brighter and it stopped rainy. There was even some sunshine…
Marion and I looked at each other and we must have thought the same: “Lets go outside”.
I still needed something for the dinner I wanted to make tonight, so I suggested to go on bicycle to the supermarket in the city of Beverwijk (I love shops that are also open on Sundays).
So we made our way in the direction of Beverwijk with the risk of ending up in some nasty rain (for that are hot showers and dry clothes when coming home). But it stayed dry during our small trip. It was good to be outside again.
At the supermarket we did get the things we needed. It is nice big supermarket with a big range of articles. I really like it there.
But as we left the supermarket it was raining again. Not extremely hard… but still. Now next to this supermarket is a “Praxis” (some kind of warehouse where you can buy anything that has to do with home/garden construction and decoration). It always nice to look around there.
So we wandered around there for a long time. Discussing the things we still want to change to our houses (now doesn’t that sound nice… our houses :P). Just as Marion, I like to burn in the evening candles and oil-lamps. They give a very warm and comfortable atmosphere to a room. I still needed a nice oil-lamp for inside. Marion knew this and bought me one…
This is one of things I really love about Marion. She is very aware of what I like. And often she has these gift of which I in some cases mentioned to her very long ago. She still remembers and does something with it. Really awesome. This oil-lamp will burn many hours and will spread a nice scent through my living room.
On our way home it didn’t rain, so made a nice long d-tour. It was nice to be out in the fresh air….
