Right...

Around 1981
Work day today. No, not driving a bus, but cleaning, clearing and sorting. I hung the washing up to dry, I cleaned the litterbox, I emptied and filled the dishwasher (isn't that a wonderful invention?) and I finished sorting the first box. Then I had some tense moments with my printer, which I wanted to throw out of the window at some point. I did refrain myself however and got it to work eventually.

The Rocky Horror Show, 1992
I was planning to make 'beschuit', a type of Dutch breakfast biscotti, but it turned out I had everything but yeast. So, I need to get yeast before being able to make any. Brownies are a good alternative though (I think) and tomorrow is another day.

Around 1995
I just checked how far I had come with the books and my maternal side is 42 (without contemporary stories) and my paternal side is over 60 (with contemporary stories) pages. I had ordered some information about three family members, but got a notice the day before yesterday that before they could handle my request I needed to pay for an earlier request. It had arrived around the time of my sudden move last year and I had completely forgotten about it. I payed and I hope they are dealing with it now. 

2003
Other than that my days are lazy days. I read a bit, I sew a bit (will show soon) and I do a bit of nothing. My friend is in Norway of course, but she has her own plans, although a plan we have together is something I have wanted to do for a long time: sledding! We have to drive inland for that, but according to a colleague who lives there, there are plenty of places we can go without having to walk for 5 kilometers first (and on the return as well).

  1. Just catching up with some of your posts, and enjoying your photos! I was supposed to get a lot of cleaning done yesterday, since it was my day off, and did not get it done. I did grocery shop, so that was one accomplishment!
