This first week of May- am hanging out on my other blog CLICK!!
See you there – all the memes/challenges at the post May Studio Musings
This week’s link is from Sunday April 29 through Wed. April 2 till 7pm, Pacific time.
Much thanks for your beautiful and ingenious posts from last week! Loved to read all of them!
By now Kings Day in the Netherlands has passed. It is like Independence day, except everything, like the parades, games for the kids, and all the parties in each city and town is focused on king Alexander.
Apple Torte with Chocolate milk, a common Dutch snack. Even the doughnuts (CLICK ) get an orange glaze. Everyone tries to wear something orange, since the royal family is the House of Orange.
He spends his day making appearances with queen Maxima and their three adorable daughters. They will have sore arms at the end of the day from waving at the inhabitants of their country.
It’s challenging to explain the difference of how one in a kingdom thinks about the head of the country, versus a president. It goes beyond the political realm.
Politics can change every 4 or 8 years, but a king is for at least half a life time. A king does not have to show whether he is good enough for the job. His whole life is centered around preparing him to take the throne.
Even though a king or queen is nowadays more of a figure head, it would be the biggest change I would have to make in my thinking, if I would change citizenship.
We had some time left, and decided to take a detour on Sunday to Sutter Creek. One of the towns on highway 49, previously the main vein of the gold rush in 1849.
They kept the main street intact, which is seen in unexpected little steps on the side walks, higher or lower than the street. Also, the road and side walks are far from straight.
Two gorgeous blooming trees on the side of an olive oil store. The left one is a Wisteria (my Wisteria just started blooming too this week!)
Thought this cute jewelry store was worth a shot.
No matter how cute, manicured, or impressive the little towns in our area are, there is still no place like home:)
Going down these steps on the back of the house, leading to my studio.
Whatever your favorite pastime is, or your favorite place to go, or if you have none, I hope you will enjoy the daily events in your season!
PS. for most of this week I’ll be hanging out at the Jesh Studio (CLICK) at the post “May Studio Musings” , so no weekly memes at this site:)
