I did a bit of my usual Saturday chores, dealt with my hobby business, paid a bit of attention to tonight’s dinner, and suddenly it is 5pm?! This last day of 2016 is just flying by swiftly at warp speed.
Last evening after dinner, D and I biked(Yes, I did?!) to De Gavers for Putteke Winter. We did the 5 kilometre walk along the forest path, saw some light shows, music performances, and took pictures. All the walking in this cold weather made D hungry, so he ate fries and drank a beer before we biked back home.
De Gavers is one of my favourite places on Earth. Now I can say that I love it by day as well as by night.
Happiness is when one does not need to travel very far to witness an interesting and lovely event. That and not falling off my bike in a dark and rainy winter night.
The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men.

The unthinkable has just happened. The impossible candidate has been elected to become one of the most powerful person on Earth. Time to panic? Hide? Run?
Red alert, shields up and evasive maneuvers! Now is when we gather our wits about, then make our next moves swiftly and with precision.
On this grey Sunday afternoon, D and I walked to the meeting centre to attend a local trade fair. There were quite a lot of people attending the free event. We met and talked to a couple of the trades people, got a free glass of beer and enjoyed our short walk.
Happy birthday to my dearest D. I have crossed oceans for you and vice versa. I shall cross a thousand more if I need to. Have a great one!
Today is Open bedrijvendag. D and I visited some companies in the region, learned how certain things work, drank free beers and ate free fries. Just another Sunday afternoon in Belgium. We even had Belgian weather to go along with the Belgian activities.
Today is Dag van de Landbouw (Day of Agriculture). D and I visited a cow farm, a technical school surrounded by an apple orchard, and lastly a hop farm which is also a brewery. After that we went to the city centre of Popperinge for Lekker Westhoeks. That means more eating and drinking…
It was a Sunday filled with enjoyable activities.
Fifteen years ago today, I was finishing my graphic design homework and preparing to go to class in the afternoon. Later, I was glued to the television, seeing images that will be stuck in my head forever. After finding out that school is closed for the day and next, I tried calling a friend who lives in Manhattan, but the lines were down. To my relief, J replied my email two days later saying that she is alright.
Fifteen years ago today, I was in the same time zone when the towers fell. Fifteen years ago today, my future shifted.
D and I spent a lovely afternoon at the Gavers. Then it was off to a sour ale festival in Vichte. Busy Sunday for us today.
