They're doing a really good job on fixing up all the old houses in my neighbourhood. Not bad for the value of my house either ;-)

I rushed to Osdorp (outskirts of Amsterdam) today to find a costume store. It wasn't there anymore. Vincent was not very happy then...

After wards I met Ruud at Cake loves coffee. The look of this cake made me a lot happier!

I rescued a bee.

Sun exploding off of a cloud.

Late arvo, Marjolein came over and played with the dust on my shelves. I should really clean things up again...

In the evening we went to see a concert by MADNESS. We went there with Ruud, Laurien, Tanja and Patrick.

The concert was great even though they did a lot of new songs and only a handful of the old stuff.

The moon above one of Amsterdam's old canals. After dropping Marjolein off at the station I walked home along the old canals. It was quiet and all I heard were my footsteps.

The sunrise from the ferry keeps fascinating me. It makes beautiful skies.

This is the new coat I bought. I'm very happy with it.

We had beer in the afternoon. And nibbles.

This is a poor little nile geese that was born way too late. We had our first frost. I don't think he'll make it much longer.

This little guy came to say hello on the ferry home :-)

I watched the first of the 6 "Rocky" movies. It was bad. But I just wanna see them all.

The pie eaters

Morning traffic.

Morning pie. A few colleagues have been asking me to make them one for a loooong time now and I finally caved in. So here it is ;-)




Tanja's husband Patrick.

Ellen and Frances.


Can never remember her name... the cleaning lady.



And the tiny pie you can see on yesterdays blog was taken to Marjolein to be used as desert after a nice dinner :-)

At the station I saw this poster. The line at the top says it's been sold out for 2 years now so I was wondering why they are still advertising. Ho-ho-ho...

Good morning little birds :-)

It was a bit foggy again.

I made 1 chocolate-caramel pie this evening (plus 1 mini). Some colleagues have been nagging for one so hard, I caved in...

I like this photo a lot.

Fog over my "street".

For behind Central Station.

More fog.

Mic, Noortje and Mickey. I went over for dinner and then squash.

Autumn is here in full swing. Nice colours everywhere.

I went to Cake Loves Coffee in the afternoon. Didn't feel like doing much so I hung around with Nicole and Angelique for hours. It was fun :-)
