Thursday Challenge; Hair

Today's Thursday Challenge is part 2 of a two week challenge but since I had my holliday last week it's my first. It's about;  HAIR (week 2 of 2) (Long, Short, Curly, Wavy, People, Animal, Hair Style Products or Equipment,...)


 We have a lot of toads living in our garden and we have a dog who has long hair. Everyone has dog hair on them, apparently even the toads....

Efteling

Gisteren had ik het er met Melody over dat ik in het Engels ben gaan schrijven omdat ik online vrienden heb die meelezen en geen Nederlands kunnen plus dat ik me soms beter kan uitdrukken in het Engels. Maar waarom niet allebei gebruiken, zei Melody. En daar kon ik niks tegenin brengen. Dus vanaf nu gewoon weer af en toe in het Nederlands en soms in het Engels zeker als het de Thursday Challenge is waar veel buitenlanders lezen.

In onze vakantie hebben we zoals ik vorige week al zei niet veel gedaan, maar we zijn wel toen het een dagje niet zo heel heet was naar de Efteling geweest. Ik heb af en toe wat zwart wit foto's genomen en af en toe kleur. Omdat we zo vaak in de Efteling komen (ik kom er al vanaf mijn 2) kun je ook meer de tijd nemen om foto's te maken. Wij hoeven niet in al die nieuwe snelle attracties en als het niet druk is kun je rustig aan doen.

Binnendieze Den Bosch

It's been very quiet on my blog I know. I just had my holiday and it's been so very hot here these past weeks/month that I just wasn't in the mood for blogging much. We didn't go very far on holiday, mostly due to the very hot weather, we just sat in our garden in the shade reading. When we did go out it was a bit cooler.

Here are some pictures of our boat trip on the Binnendieze in Den Bosch, something we always wanted to do but never have for some reason. It was a wonderful experience.
Photos taken with my iPhone.

Thursday Challenge; Expensive

It's been awhile since I've participated in the Thursday Challenge. I wanted to be on social media less plus I'm not making as many new photos as I want to. My holiday is finally starting soon so hopefully that means new pics soon as well. But for now an older one from the Rijksmuseum on the challenge;
EXPENSIVE (Clothes, Cars, Jewelry, Money, Gold, Coins,...)

WorldPhotoDay

Today is WorldPhotoDay and to celebrate that I have to tend to my neglected photoblog again. I was trying to be on social media less so that's why I'm on here less as well. I'm not making photos as much as I used to as well.
I still haven't got my holiday too (two weeks from now) so no fresh new pics either.
But one of my favourites for today;

Ten years ago; Dorset

Ten years ago today me and my family were on holiday in the beautiful county of Dorset. I thought about that because of the hot weather now and then as well and the Four days Marches of Nijmegen which had extreme hot weather ten years ago as well! 
In Dorset on holiday we heard about it through a friend and in Charmouth were we stayed the asphalt was melting under your feet! 
It's also was the last year I was on holiday with my then husband (now ex) and as a complete family. I didn't realise it then of course. 

Charmouth is on the Jurassic Coast  a fantastic coast with lots of fossils to be found.

Enjoy the little things

After almost two weeks of Social Media break I put myself on I'm now slowly starting to put some things on my blogs again and maybe will start with Twitter and Facebook again too. But not as I did before. More slow this time, leave room for other things in life as well.
Enjoy other things besides being lived by your phone and or laptop... One can only hope.... ;-)
