This is a photo with some blue in the sky. It was taken only minutes after this other photo….
…. where the sky and the water were nothing but grey. Our days have been very grey lately. But, this being the Netherlands, people still get out in the grey and get on with their lives, like those sailing in the above photo. DB went out running this morning in the rain. He couldn’t be bothered to wait until the rain stopped. We knew it would stop because we are keen users of www.buienradar.com.
I waited until the rain stopped, around 11:45, then I headed out to the nearby polder for a little run. My intention was to run. It turned into a walk. I thought that the big muscle in my left butt cheek had healed (from being pulled back in June) but yesterday in yoga class I got a big cramp in that muscle and now it’s really painful again. Sheesh. It feels like my body is conspiring against me and running. And I was doing so well earlier this year!
Anyway, it was nice to be outside and get some fresh air. I timed it just right and missed the rain completely.
When I got home I took a photo of the last of the roses for this year. My poor roses really struggle to bloom and not die from mould. Maybe I don’t pay enough attention to them. Maybe I need to put more chemicals on them to keep the mould at bay. I’ll try to be a better gardener next year. Until then, bye bye roses and flowers and leaves on the trees. Winter is coming!
