Saturday 's Critters

Sofietje doing her daily exercises lying on her back.

She curls her self around the plant pot every day.

Yesterday we had some alternation in our slowdown Corona life. In front of our home a huge crane had arrived.

Our neighbours had ordered a dormer on the roof of their home.

As the crane only could park in front ot the house the dormer had to be lifted over the roof of their house to the backside.

And there it was at the backside.

Now to get it in the right place.

Mission accomplished!

A lonely walk over the dike in Almere Haven yesterday. The prime-minister of our country told us yesterday by speech on television that the restrictive measures have been extended to April 28.

Lots of sun at the moment after a winter with only rains.

And a young Sofietje. Linking to "Our World Tuesday"

I am still looking in the archives,  this is the parlementsbuilding in Berlin in 2014 we visited during sunset.

With a wonderful sunlight  view over the city.

And a walk around to the top.

The new normal

Finally the rains have stopped and we see blue skies again. But it is difficult to enjoy it at the moment. When you have a walk you have to be alert to keep distance to others. We are used to greet each other on a walk, that's the habit here in a village. Now you have to think to step aside in the  grassland when you see someone comes to you. It feels as if you are afraid of someone.

A sign of the municipality of Almere: "Here we work on healthy, safe and varied forests and parks"

Well they did their best.

A lot of wood for sale.

This was a pretty parc in a residential area.....

I have my doubts.  Linking to "Signs 2"

Sofietje in a complicated attitude, while cleaning her face with the front leg the back leg was scratching her head at the same time. Not a very elegant pose. Linking to "Our World Tuesday"

With  the being home, all the time  here to avoid the Corona Virus there  is not much to photograph or to experience to share in a blogpost. But surprise, the motorway in front of our home is asphalted again. Every early morning lots of big machines are noisy driving by, scraping away the old asphalt and making a new layer. The road is almost ready now. Well this is our exciting life at the moment....

On our walks in the surroundings we had an unusual meeting. A pony sulky,  never seen before. The girl told us she did it just for fun, the pony likes to have a run,  so she occasionally takes him out from the riding school to have a ride outside.
