Have a Great Weekend!

‘You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself any direction you choose.’

– Dr. Seuss

Man, I had a good week! I hope, you did too?

Man, wat had ik een leuke week! Ik hoop, jij ook?

It started with the Angel saving our Important Papers.


Het begon met de Engel die onze Belangrijke Papieren redde.

The weather was nice and cool. I have found the first horse chestnut and colored leaves from this fall.


Het weer was zo prettig koel. Ik vond de eerste kastanje en verkleurde bladeren van deze herfst.

A lovely friend from The Netherlands send me these books…more about those later. Thank you, my dear!


Een hartelijke vriendin uit Nederland stuurde me deze boekjes…meer daarover later. Dankjewel, lieverd!

And lovely friends from Canada send us flowers to mark the beginning of us living as ‘real’ Empty Nesters. Thank you my dears !


En hartelijke vrienden uit Canada stuurde ons deze bloemen om t feit te markeren dat we nu ‘echte’ lege nesters zijn. Ook jullie bedankt, lieverds!

Here the beautiful reason: our oldest son, just graduated, found a job in downtown Toronto and started  last week and is ever so enthusiastic.

Whilst his younger brother started his first week at college in Toronto and is equally enthusiastic.

I can not find the words to express how happy and proud I am of those two!


Hier de prachtige reden: onze oudste zoon, net afgestudeerd, heeft een baan gevonden in hartje Toronto. Hij is afgelopen week begonnen en  zo enthousiast.

Terwijl zijn jongere broer zijn eerste week op college afgewerkt heeft, al net zo enthousiast!

Ik kan geen woorden vinden om uit te drukken, hoe trots en gelukkig ik ben met die twee!

So let us listen to this music that says it all and watch this incredible clip and wish all the young people in the world a chance to get ahead and enjoy life!

Dus laten we luisteren naar deze muziek die t allemaal zegt en kijken naar de geweldige clip en dan alle jonge mensen in de wereld de kans wensen om vooruit te komen en te genieten van t leven!

Love and Liefs, Johanna.

  1. I don’t even know where to start commenting on this! That’s all great news about your sons–and so neat they’re in the same city (and what a great city!) I think your photos are so much fun and striking! And the video is superb–it really is so perfect. I love that the kids aren’t all slick and polished but so real, even the ballet dancers at the end! And the parents and coaches are so proud . . . I’m going to go watch it again! Thanks! XO

    • Dear Kerry, I am so pleased you liked this post and the music! So you have been to Toronto? The ‘bro’s ‘ think it is the best city in the world. It is great ( and practical ) they are only a half hour subway apart from each other and they get along really well: I do feel blessed with them indeed. Thank you, have alovely Sunday and a big hug from Ohio

      • Yes, I’ve been to Toronto many times–we lived in Buffalo for 20+ years. Now we’re very close to Montreal and pretty close to Ottawa–both wonderful in their own ways!
