I will see what I have on hand. I love salads and that would work great here.
Here we go down the final stretch of the pact, Sandra P twin! I hope it is a good week for you.
Happy Monday, everyone! I am stuck in meetings all day which takes time away from my projects so I invited my minion friend to bring some motivation! I can do this!
Only 10 minutes early? DC, do you know how much stress you are causing me by leaving that late? I am more likely to leave 20-30 minutes early, especially if it's somewhere I have never been. The place may be hard to find or the traffic may be heavier than expected.
Thank you for the E, Sandra P twin! You are right. I do have this and then some! Happy Pact Hump Day!
Today's picture is a caveat for those who leave ten minutes early. Don't get so caught up in leaving early that you forget something important!
I do this all the time every day. I think I spend too much time in the future when my goal has been achieved and not enough time enjoying the present. Part of that is that my present is too cluttered, in many ways. I am feeling very overwhelmed at the thought of decluttering. I know I have to work at it little by little but it's not easy.
Thank you, Sandra P twin and Marianne B for the E today! You brought a smile to my face and light into the world.
Day 2 is underway, Sandra P twin! Today will be a restful day.
Oh, that's a nice stretch. Good thing they sent a video because I would have raised my arms up too high.
Thank you for the E today, Sandra P twin! Good thing you sent it because I never got the original email.
Today's picture is Madurodam. It is a park in The Hague in the Netherlands. It features 1:25 scale models of famous Dutch landmarks and cities. This is the coolest thing ever. What is even better is that the proceeds from the park go the various charities in the Netherlands. If you ever make it to The Hague, you must visit this place.
All of these sound good. I am thinking avocados while they are in season.
Today's picture is the City Hall (Stadhuis) in Dordrecht, Netherlands. What a beautiful building. I especially love the clock tower. This is generally a very picturesque town with a lot of history.
I know a bit about shingles already. For example, you can get chicken pox from someone with a shingles outbreak, if you have never had chicken pox before. Both diseases are caused by the same virus. I have never had chicken pox. Therefore, I can't get shingles but I do have to be careful around anyone who is in the contagious stage of shingles.
I also learned that there is a vaccine for Chicken pox and I think I will ask my doctor about it. Such diseases are usually much worse when you get them as an adult.
Today's picture is of a "kerkorgel" or church organ. It is a gorgeous pipe organ in a church (De Grote Kerk) in Dordrecht, Netherlands. This church is at least 500 years old, but the organ you see was completed in 2007. It is a reproduction of the original organ. Sorry, it is sideways but I couldn't figure out how to rotate it.
You can see the organ is being played (beautifully!) by a woman who really has her hands full. There are a number of knobs that have to be set for each musical piece.
