Rustle of Spring

Spring is here. Sitting indoors, with the bright and sparkly sunshine filtering in through the windows it definitely looks as though it has arrived.

I heard birds this morning, saw a robin & think i saw rabbits moving the easter eggs. alright so am getting a little carried away.

Am quite obsessed with picasa. but am bored already. edited every single picture i could!

my friends have woken up. spring must be here. r called from ny.m is headed there. bdf is about to kill me because i sent her baboon avatar to everyone!

what's with all this baby making.that is all everyone is obsessed with. again think it has to do with spring being in the air.

have you tried watching cnn europe? all their stories are about america, america, america and once in a while a snippet of germany/ireland!

yesterday i learnt my 1st set of unpronounceable dutch words. forced to. couldn't read the instructions on the cereal cartons!

it is quite amazing how the definition of time changes. is it to do with cultures? or simply my current life?

A Brand New Day....Life

Starting of a brand new day….

And life! If there is life after 30 that is…alright alright all you octogenarians, stop scowling.

After spending a life stretched & gasping for time & breath, feels quite odd really. No appointments, the phone does ring a few times – only because it is my birthday.

Also the oft threatened promise of a dog biscuit, glass of water and tied to a pole is lived up to. Only substituted by a half eaten caramel waffle (stroopwaffel), a few nuts, and cup of foul fowl soup. Not to forget being locked in to the apartment!

Hennes and Mauritz here I come. Erase. Zara I am here. White linen I am here. Crochet slips I arrive!

Actually it was more like Albert Heijn and common sense I arrive. Sigh….

The hardest thing is to be practical. Which is odd given that I always get feed back at work – “you are so practical”. Which gets me back to the yin & the yang story! Call it congruity if you will. Everything I do at work, I don’t do at home. Which though F. doesn’t realize it yet- it great for him!
The day ends. Much brine (euphemism) and wine later. Asian fusion cuisine is nice. As is the service – rather charming. Back to the yin & yang – for all the sophistication of the cuisine F managed to chuck peanuts, and coffee beans across the table! Gave one the distinct feeling of eating at a fabulous banquet with a gibbon monkey! Of course if the gibbon is paying, one can’t really complain!
