Life looks easier in summer. To me, that is. Getting up early is easier, because it isn't dark. Going to work is easier, because it isn't cold. Coming home is easier, because it is still light and I can sit on my terrace for a while. Going on a trip on my day off seems easier, because life itself doesn't ask that much energy in summer. Ergo I love summer!
Last Friday was my day off and DH and I went on a trip to The Hague. As usual, I will show you some pictures at the end of this blogpost.
I also went to Amsterdam this week, work related. Travelling always makes me feel like having vacation. After doing our job, my colleague and I walked through Amsterdam to pick up the birthday present I bought for myself. A new, handmade bag, made by Handig Handwerk.
She also made a Crossbody Bag for me, with a lining with little sheep.
Yesterday we went to our family house, to spend the day at the country. Farmers were busy mowing grass and I could sit down and enjoy the smell of freshly-cut grass and quilt my NY quilt. Not finished yet!
And as promised, some pictures of The Hague. We went from the government buildings (Tweede Kamer) to The Passage (a shopping area), then a small pass through between two houses where a flower and antique shop was located. Then you see the Hofvijver (do you see the rainbow in the fountain?) and the area around Central Station.

Well, of course, we know that city! And it seems you had perfect weather for your visit. You visited someone's farm??? Of course, I do like your quilt. It will hold lots and lots of memories for you and Karin.
