Fixing my garden

(Click to enlarge)
Wednesday morning I made a disturbing discovery! 1 cm wide cracks appeared in the sidewalk in front of my house. The tiles were pushed towards my garden, pushing a dent in my garden's border.
The most surprising of it all is that I can't imagine this happening overnight and I never noticed a thing until last wednesday morning when I went to work! Odd...

So this morning I took out the tiles. See the dent? Can't have that kind of bull shit! My border has to be neat! ;-)

I removed some sand and put the border in it's original, straight line again.

See how straight that is? That's how I like it! He-he-he.

I put the tiles back in and that's that. I think the garden dirt got too dry and shrunk a bit, giving room for the tiles to move.

Early arvo I went to buy a few things for halloween. I hadn't had lunch yet so I picked up some chips at Wil's. He's a legend in the area. Very free spirit, nice guy.

I sat in one of the gigantic chairs next to the Wester kerk eating chips and spotting the local talent ;-P

Tower of the Wester kerk.

Typical canal. The houses in the middle are the ones Anne Frank looked at from her hiding place.

I went to a shop where they sell fun things.

Pretty berries on my walk home.

I still had energy left (I'm still recovering from a bad cold) and I cycled to the DIY store. I spent over 50 euro and because of that I got a free Lego toy!

The veggies.

There was a spider on the coffee machine.

In the office a discussion panel had formed. I tried to ignore it mostly ;-) (though the actual discussion was good, but I was busy...)

I cooked vegetables in the evening. Have leftovers for tomorrow.

I met Marjolein at the Indian restaurant we been to before. I love her smile :-)

Marjolein's food was piping hot.

The clouds

On the ferry to work it looked like it was going to be a great day. But dark clouds were waiting...

The clouds looked beautiful I thought. Pity that later during the day they dropped hail stones and rain on us.

The final episode

The score after 1.5 days of being sick. I seem to have improved a great deal today and actually feel like going to the office again tomorrow where a mountain of work awaits me.

I watched the last episode of Star Trek Voyager's final season 7. It was... emotional.
