Sunny, Bright Tuesday.
Yesterday was a light, sunny day and today is the same, it is another bright, sparkling sunny day and it is very warm.
It feels warm, sunny and very relaxed, it is a warm, balmy early autumn day, which is a wonderfully bonus after the glorious summer we have had.
How I wish this sort of weather could be everyday, somehow I almost feel bad, immodest for wanting this sort of weather all year.
Maybe it sounds weird, come on this is Northern Europe, but it is not at all weird for someone like me who was born in Trinidad to want blue skies and warm all year around.
In Trinidad it is not an unrealistic wish but here it is and here I have never become used to not having the blue sky and the warm balmy air all year round.
Now I know that I will never lose that desire either as it is what I was born into, that is what my body and my mind really need.
However we human are adaptable so like everyone else I too have learned to adapt to the weather here.
So much so that I almost forgot why I love blue skies and sun so much, don’t even mind if its not always warm as long as it loos nice.
Going to load up on sunshine this week, as this does not happen too much during the autumn here in Amsterdam.
Amsterdam so often as a grey cloudy lid on the city which can set in and last for weeks, hoping this autumn will be clear and bright.
Marianne came by for her weekly visit, we talked solidly for two hours and she has gone home now to do colour her hair.
Was very pleasant to see her, as it is every week, it really has been good luck to have met her and have the pleasure of getting to know her.
She is a wonderful woman, good fun, intelligent and very caring, she is a good friend and it’s good to see that we are all enjoying each others company.
Well it’s a pleasant afternoon, is going to sit in bed and listen to the kids playing outside and listen to some radio tinkling in the background.
Have a good Tuesday I am.
