Three things

Three things that make me happy this week:

1. sunny and warm weather. Today we'll get temperatures over 25 degrees C (close to 80 F)! I know, so early. That seems to be a trend here in The Netherlands. Early summer weather in spring followed by a cool and wet summer. But we're not thinking about that yet (we'll be on a tropical island for a while anyway). Right now the whole country is in summer mode. Spanish music on the radio, shorts and skirts everywhere and probably large traffic jams on the roads to the beaches.

2. working in the garden. And even more: working in the garden when it's sunny and warm.

3. eating outside (had our first bbq yesterday), sitting outside, knitting outside. Being outside and not getting wet or cold, but soaking up sun and warmth instead.

Okay, maybe that's actually just one thing making me happy. Oh well.
Still going to link up with Carole Knits' Three Things ;-) Oops, forgot she's on vacation... 


  1. We haven't even gotten above 70 here yet, but that's OK, as long as it isn't snowing or raining I will take some 50-60 degree weather.

    1. I would be happy with that too ;-) This won't last. Dutch weather tends to hit extremes and then go back to our default autumn-like cloudy, rainy days.
