Bloemen 26 November 2016
Also this weekend bought a wonderful bouquet flowers again. It is amazing how every weekend there is a nice bouquet on his dinner table again.

This is so far a nice weekend. Sanne, Marissa and Richard are visiting us. Jennifer and Miranda also wanted to come, but Jennifer should still keep rest with her knee. And even while Jennifer protested, Miranda decided not to travel. And we think that is a good decision. As soon Jennifer is all up again, we will plan a new weekend together.

Tonight we will go out for dinner with the whole bunch. The plans for tomorrow are still unclear

Flowers of this week :-)

by Marion on

In the series “Flower bouquets bought by Rob”, the bouquet of this week :-). As already told before, Rob buys almost every week a nice bouquet of flowers for on his dinning table. He has a very good taste for that. He composes the bouquets himself and he is doing a very good job at that.
I have created an categorie “Rob’s Flower Bouquets” here on the weblog :-)

And oh, he bought some very tasteful marzipan at a confectioner. Very very good :-).

A weekend to relax and to rest…

by Rob on

Last two nights of the working week I didn’t sleep too well. This without real reason. Every now and then I have this. Nothing to worry about. So last Friday at work I was tired and nothing went the way I wanted it.

By mails from Marion I understood that she also was tired and annoyed by the delayed plane that would bring her back to The Netherlands.

As we had no real obligations for this weekend, we decided to make it a weekend to relax and to rest. Yesterday around 9 o’clock in the evening we already went to bed (keep your mind out of the gutter, you are thinking in the wrong direction :P). We both slept very quickly, showing that we both were in need for some sleep.
Somewhere around midnight I woke up, feeling a bit hungry and thirsty. Clumsy enough I woke up Marion as well. I made some small snacks for us. Poured a glass of wine for Marion and some beer for myself.
Marion made the remark that she was in the mood to watch a movie, but didn’t want to leave the bed. So as we did once before, we moved the coffee table aside. We dropped the mattress from the bed on the ground in the living room before the television, cosy under our duvets we re-watched the movie “Legend”.
And right there we slept during the night.

As a matter of fact, I am sitting here with my laptop on my lap on that mattress, while Marion is still asleep beside me.

Only for some necessary shopping for this weekend we may go outside…. maybe a walk when the weather is nice…. but for the same we stay all day in bed :).

Allowing yourself to relax and to rest at times is very important!!!

This weekend….

by Rob on

A bit weird weekend it is….

Last Thursday I was off work and I went with Tom to the “Sail In” to make pictures of the arriving sail boats for Sail Amsterdam 2010. A sight to see. Even made though the circumstances were bad, I made some nice pictures…

I had planned this Saturday to go Amsterdam and visit Sail there, but when I woke up Saturday morning I didn’t feel very well. My stomach did hurt a bit, a bit of a headache. So I decided to stay home.

Later in the afternoon I started to feel better again, but my mood to visit Sail was a bit gone. I went to the town of Heemskerk instead to do shop some things I wanted to have.

Marion had made a remark that having a fondue would be very nice. It was ages ago that she had one and that goes for me as well. So I bought a nice electric fondue-set (a design one even :P). So now can we can have our fondue’s…. cheese, meat, Chinese… whatever :P.
Same time I bought two nice table candlesticks, so I can make the dinner table look really nice.

As I have now rather people over for dinner and I like to make salads, I bought a nice big salad bowl that can holds enough salad for at least 4 or 5 persons. I also got some nice some smaller bowls that can used for many things.
And so I got some other things for my house as a holder for paper napkins and luxury soap dispensers. I love to buy things for my house.

I watched some episodes of Stargate Atlantis. Talked for a while with Marion on the phone. I was happy to hear that she felt better again. Feeling tired, I found my way to bed early.

This (Sunday) morning I slept long. After waking up I made myself a small breakfast. I worked on some pictures that I want to put on the walls of my home.
Some how my iPod got problems. I have been at least 2 hours busy to solve the problems. Remembered an artist of who I have an vinyl record. Entered the name of the artist into the iTunes stores and got very unexpected a full hit. So now I have all the songs I loved of Tony Hazzard on my iPod. “Tony who?” you may say. Tony Hazzard is a songwriter who has written songs for Hollies (“Listen to me”), Manfred Mann (“Ha ha, said the clown” and “Fox on the run”) and more. But he also sings some very great songs himself.

Went for a ride on my bike and saw some part of the city of Beverwijk that I hadn’t seen before.

Tonight? Watch some more episodes of Stargate Atlantis or watch the movie 2012 that I got this weekend. Maybe playing some Everquest II.

So a weekend that went complete different as planned, but it was not a bad weekend after all :)
