Nature

Toad protection

Lots of toads usd to live in our neighbourhood before they put up the houses. To entice them to stay in the pools dug for them we built a wall made out of peat blocks. Tarek even got to drill!

It’s January

Lets go into the forest, take off our jackets, have a picknick and afterwards play in the sunshine.

It’s thanks to a walk in the forest with the boswachter yesterday that we found this beautiful open space.

They also showed us the spot you can go to to watch wild boar and deer. I guess the animals heard us coming because we didn’t see any yesterday.

We also finally tried Pizza & Pizza, a restaurant we pass daily but never went to before.

It may be hard to spot in her face on this photo but if it’s up to Miko we will surely go back to Pizza & Pizza. And she’s right, wood fired oven, thin crusted pizza….Yummy!

A walk in the park

If you talk with me on a semi regular basis you have probably heard me complain about the dullness and/or other not too positive aspects of Ede. You have never heard me nag about the surroundings though. This morning we, and today that included Opa & Oma Bouwmeester, went for a walk in the park. Well maybe forest is a better description. Did you know there’s a centuries old castle close to where we live? Part of its grounds are park like, others really foresty. It’s all gorgeous,3specially this colourful season. Our little walk turned into quite a few kilometers.

And the most amazing thing about the walk was the fact that Miko did not demand to be carried even once. Could it be because she wasn’t walking? Even Tarek helped out in keeping Miko going.

And what is also nice about today…. I’m writing this blog post from a new phone but have managed to squeeze in photographs from the old phone. Yeah!

More jam

Yesterday I learned that my father is trying to make more jars of blackberry jam than I am making. So I quickly went to my favorite bushes and picked another 5 kg. Now processing. The total pick stands at about 13 kg.
