Spring! Boy oh boy did we have great weather past weekend. It was Spring, spring, spring. On Sunday we came close to 20C (68 degrees) with sunshine all day on Saturday and Sunday. You get so much energy from this weather. Loved it!
We are going to the theater tomorrow evening for an unplugged concert of The Golden Earring. A Dutch band that you might know (Roz I know you do) from Radar Love. They had a hit with that song in the US. It’s been a while since we’ve been to the theater and I look forward to it.
Q&A on my last post(s):
Helen asked me what my grandfather’s name was. I have never met my grandfather. He was killed because he was hit by a car when my mother was 18. That was in 1960 and I am born in 1968. My full name is Janna Franciska. My grandfather’s name was Jan Frank.
Biz didn’t know what chicory is. The translation gave this word for this vegetable but maybe you name it different?
Char asked on my last post if the wild boars in the photo were sculptures.
They were made of wood and it looks like they were for kids to play on.
Debby: the red brick building was built in the water and it’s a castle. The sign outside that upstairs is used as an office and downstairs you could take a tour if it was open (it wasn’t) and that they decorated it in the style of the time when it was used as a house.
And the mill near the house was a watermill indeed. I don’t know if it’s still in use. It was also closed so I couldn’t look inside.

Another 5K and again a walk break after every 2 songs. I had plans to walk after every 3 songs but I wasn’t feeling all that well. Because the weather was beautiful I did go (if it was raining I probably would have skipped the run) but it was a tough one. But in the end I was a bit faster than last run.

Weather: dry, sunny, not much wind, 8C (46 degrees)
Last song on Ipod before finish: Paul McCartney – Listen what the men said

Monday March 10
A salad of the red and white cabbage with purslane and the smoked catfish. Recipe from the Beebox. I wasn’t too fond of this dish but that’s because I am not a huge fan of smoked fish. But since it was in the box I used it.
Tuesday March 11
Merquez sausages, baked potatoes, roasted celeriac and carrotparsley.
