First really nice spring day

We had a lovely day today and spring is finally here. It was nice to sit out in the garden. Lots of gardening to do, but I’ll let nature do her thing with the daff’s and soon to be tulips first.

Jansen – de Wijze Man

Wat een prachtig verrassing! [What a wonderful surprise!]

We waren volledig verrast toen een oudere heer belde aan bij onze deur vandaag. Hij had zijn trike uit Wervershoof gereden op een koude en regenachtige dag om ons een schilderij dat hij had gemaakt van Jansen te brengen. Hij had het krantenartikel in de week voor …

Jane’s first walk alone

This photo and video was Jane’s first walk without Jansen. She was not really alone, because we were both with her, but we could really see how different it was for her. It was a hard walk for all of us, and one we have been putting off, because we knew it would make us …

Nice Autumn Weekend

I kind of forgot it was Halloween on Friday until a neighbour stopped by. I did manage to get a couple of decorations up though.

It’ was unseasonably warm over the weekend. We also got in a nice walk with the dogs and really enjoyed what I think was the last warm day of the …

Ed the Hedgehog and his Flea bag Friends

There is not much new happening with us, so I thought I would share our story about our visiting hedgehog friend and flea bag dogs.

We’ve had a hedgehog that we call “Ed” visiting for many years. We met him first when he was not much bigger than a tennis ball. At that time we …
