Along with 197 other members, I’ve joined the ABC-Along forum on Ravelry. What does this mean? Every 2 weeks I will publish a photo that relates to the letter for that time period. As I’m still under (just) the wire for the letter A, here’s a photo for Amsterdam.
It’s probably not what you’d expect for an Amsterdam photo, nor would you expect it for this time of year. It is definitely a photo from the city as it is was taken on my roof terrace, in de Baarsjes, in Amsterdam. I’ve chosen it because at this time of year I need every reminder I can get that we WILL see the sun again and it WILL one day be warm again. These dark days of January make me grumpy and depressed.
Today we had again pokke weer (pox weather – the Dutch swear using diseases – how cute). It was gray and cold and it rained all day. I really loved pulling out this photo and seeing green and purple and pink and yellow. It really does cheer me up. I think I’ll set this photo as my desktop for a while.
