Cactus Monday

Remember I showed you this cactus in bloom a while ago?
Meanwhile these flowers are gone
 But when I moved it out of the kitchen yesterday I discovered
This tiny new plant!
Without the clip which prevented the flower from falling down this little  plant would have landed on the soil....... What an ingenious system :) 
 This was my kitchen before the builders started this morning.
This is end of day 1..................
You don't want to see the rest of my house now. Mess everywhere.
Tomorrow I will leave for Toronto leaving poor hubby in this mess. 
Yesterday I cooked for 3 weeks and we still have a coffee machine and a microwave.
At least they won't be hungry.........

Thinking about you all at the East Coast! Hope you are all safe and that Irene won't ruin your home or garden or hurt your loved ones.

Happy Cactus Monday!

A few pictures from Italy

 Had some lovely days in Italy
 Felix had fun with his best friend and sister
 This makes me want to be a believer...........
 Moderne tijden zijn ook tot de kleinste kerkjes doorgedrongen
 Electric candles!!!!!
 The lake of  Bolsena
 Buying and tasting olive oil
 Nice shops
 Having fun in Orvieto

Just a few pictures of Italy. I took about 400.......
Felix and I had a real wonderful time. We came home Wednesday evening and back to being busy here again.
Yesterday I took the kids to an amusement park, where they had fun with the 5 of them and I spent time with a friend drinking coffee in the sunshine. I did just one ride as I really get sick of all this tossing and turning.
Today I have to do work in the garden and inside. Tomorrow family from Venezuela will visit and Monday I will start work again.
I saw 2 new grandchildren from blog friends were born. Congrats to you both. I looked at the pictures but had no time to comment. I hope later today I will have.

Have a wonderful weekend :)

Greetings from Paramaribo

I returned today from Paramaribo
 Here are some pictures of the town
 Unfortunately some of the buildings are in poor shape
 But I loved this one : De Waag
 I enjoyed a cappuccino and some shade here.............
 The Suriname river 
 All pictures taken with mobile phone..... 
 This afternoon I returned home and tomorrow I will travel to Italy 
 with my son Felix for 5 days
 I will take my Nikon with me this time

Have to start unpacking and packing. Am I crazy?????? Think so!
Had a good time in Paramaribo. I love the country, I love the people.
From nasi and sateh I am flying to pizza's and pastas.
What a life! Sometimes life is good:)
