the seal

The seal inside the golden egg.

golden egg

Few days ago, I had written a letter, searched all over the place for my stamps.
Somewhere, someplace I had stored them away in a drawer or a box to overcome the dust.
Now nowhere to be found.
I had turned some boxes upside down, searched some stamps.

So I went to the post office to get some new.
I always ask for "NICE" stamps, (not the common Queenstamp)
So the lady at the desk showed me the choices.
Immediately my eye fell on The Dagobert Duck stamps.
I liked this ones, so I said: "I like 2 sheets"

Oh, she said grabbing something out of nowhere.
"Then you get this golden egg as well", as she put the egg on the counter..
Surprized I looked at the golden egg, which had the size of a doves egg.

Oh..I like that! I said," Its better then breeding the egg first, to get the chick out"
She glanced at me kind offf..what?
A moment later the penny dropped, as she smiled.
Then she said: "There is something in it..some sweets..or?"
while she grabbed a sheet from under the counter to check:
"No there a seal inside".

The rain is trying to cleanse my dusty windows.
The windows haven't been cleansed for a long time,
the dust of the constructionwork keeps coming&coming, so its no use doing.

I hope the rain helps me a little.

After the workmen left... today
One of the carpenters left one of his notes:

bathing leaves

In the birdbath are now leaves having a bath.
Some are on the edge of drowning...

rain drops

It has been raining cats and dogs, last night.
I heard Bibi miaaauwing/screaming coming inside...still dark outside.
That means he has a mouse...

As the house still is under construction, The doors were not yet replaced.
That meant he can enter the house into all the rooms he wanted.
This morning I searched around in the house for the mouse,
I could not find the mouse anymore.
Yucky...where did the mouse go!

Today the doors have been placed

So that problem is solved; sigh..sigh...

back home

I'm back home again.
After having been away for a month...because my house is still under construction,
I arrived back home today.

Even with everything under layers of dust..I feel like home again.
My own own garden, my own own birds...Home is at home.
This coal-tit is at the house where I took them a while to find the seeds I had put up for them.

Blue jay

A blue jay reading the out!
electric wire.


A snail, walked across the glass window.

You had to look very carefully, as it seemed he did not make any progress.
But the moment I looked closer, I could surely see him move.
Though very slowly he did arrive on the spot where he wanted to go.
