First Snow

Unexpectedly Friday night we had the first snow of this winter - not very much and it lasted only for just more than an hour, but nevertheless : could it be that they told us lies when we bought the house?

This weekend the tiling of the laundry and wash room was started - despite it being very cold in this part of the house the biggest part is already done.

An Intermezzo

For all our international guests and friends :

Everything you always wanted to know about Belgium but were afraid to ask (free after Woody Allen).
No, seriously, it isn't "une blague belge".

Honi soit qui mal y pense.

See you next week.

Tiling II

As foreseen and with a little extra effort this week-end the first part of the tiling could be finished : the garage is completely tiled and jointed now.

It was a rather rainy week - but nothing comparable to the Belgian situation - with only the last two days beautiful sunshine.
After the falling of the leaves come the dew and the cobwebs.

Works again

The fact that now the tourist season is rather low is an ideal opportunity to do some works again.
Yesterday, Saturday, the 6th, the tiling of the laundry & wash room and the garage was started.
After all this time of "inactivity" it took a lot of effort to begin again - especially as everything in the garage had to be moved (for the 6th time already) and the whole place had to be cleaned which took some three days.

The first rows are already done.

These works are the last but two to finish. Still remaining : the finishing of the window frames outside and the decoration of the private bureau. Come and see next year.

My new bicycle arrived, a so-called asphalt commuter - hopefully still in time to get in good shape again after a long thursty and lavish summer. Perhaps some destressing is also needed.

The vineyards and trees are getting wine-red - beautiful autumn colours.
