Because of health issues I am at home most of the days. When I do get outdoors, I always take a knitting project with me.
I know, Knit In Public Day (K.I.P. Day) is on June 8 this year, but for me every day can be a day to knit outdoors. Continue reading →
My partner is away for business and I stay home alone.
‘I am not that different from a pet when the owners are away for the weekend. It is just a matter of leaving enough food,’ I say trying to be funny. But at the same time I feel uncomfortable, realizing that my life does look an awful lot like that of an animal in its cage. Continue reading →
This year’s Easter was colder than Christmas four months ago. So when the weather forecast finally was mentioning temperatures appropriate for this time of year I got nervous. I just had (nothing could stop me) to paint my toenails in a bright, aqua blue color of course.

April is the Month of Philosophy. And indeed it is with this year’s theme ‘guilt and penance’, when you know that both the trials against Jasper S. and Robert M. are currently held.

Easter is on its way, the countdown has started. I am not someone that complains about the Easter treats being in season a week after Christmas, or that Christmas cookies can be bought in August. I don’t understand that that is something you can be irritated by in the first place.
However, I dare to admit that I am not amused with this idiotic diet of mine, because in the last week there hasn’t been a day that I haven’t been dreaming about tasteful Easter biscuits. It is those dry biscuits with the sugary cream in the shape of a fried egg on top. Well, those are the ones that are *%^$( forbidden. Continue reading →
Life is largely based on assumptions as I know from my point of view from the sofa. Watching what passes the window, I often see a man walk by with his left arm stretched and raised to his hips, while he is walking with a hurried cadence.
