2018.10.14 Yoga with kids

For my morning exercises, I have 3 routines I do alternately. One is all kinds of stretching exercises, the second is power training with weights (actually 2 water bottles, because my halters are in the storage), and the third is yoga.

2018.07.10 You take my breath away

For some reason, the theme of today turned out to be smoking. Which is kind of odd since we are both avid non-smokers.

Coffee and water in the morning sun at ‘our’ terrace. Mmmm, bliss. Getting used to the temperatures and the differences between day and evening, sun and shadow, or outside and air-conditioned shops can be difficult. So unfortunately Tom has the flu now.Let’s hope that my daily sun bath will keep me healthy. ^hm

What I won’t miss I cough a lot. So does hubby. And recently I started noticing that a lot of friends and family have a respiratory ‘something’ as well. Coughing, running nose, stuffy nose, allergies. So maybe it’s my imagination, but it also might be the pollution. The area in between Antwerp, Rotterdam, and the … Read more
