Andrea 🌱  Living an intentional life in rural Ontario Canada 🇨🇦🐝🐓🌲

A few of my favourite things before spending a busy day in Amsterdam. Not seen: ducks splashing in the canal just a few feet away, sheep bleating from across the field, unique birdsong unheard at home, the local church bell chiming and jets taking off in the distance reminding me of the fleeting time that remains and the lure of the comforts of home that await. . .

After visiting the Canadian War Cemetery in Grosbroek, the Dutch, German and Belgian border and the Castle ruins and caves in Valkenburg, we landed at the most serene B&B in Bunde. Our suite was decorated in soothing cream and white tones and we had the use of a beautiful garden to relax in and enjoy a cuppa before heading out for dinner in Meerssen. If you’re ever in this area hit me up for the details. .

I Ike traveling to new places with no expectations, because I usually fall in love with a place. So far The Netherlands is no exception. We started the day in a charming little town with savoury stuffed croissants fresh from the local bakery, and ate them next to a beautiful garden stand/tent in the middle of the road, full of flowers and other plants, while just as many people cycled around us, as were driving cars. We toured Castle de Haar and it’s delightful gardens and ended the day walking along the canals of Utrecht admiring the elegant simplicity of Dutch architecture. Yep, I’m smitten. 🇳🇱 . .

Our first night in The Netherlands. We’re tired but we’re not. 😛 We’re staying in Utrecht for a few days, and we’re right by the canal, which is very busy carrying all sorts of cargo to and fro. Looking forward to feeling refreshed and sightseeing tomorrow. Goede nacht! . .

The new kids on the perch...less one lost to a raccoon. It’s quite possible the raccoon population is down slightly. Meanwhile, at 3 months old I still can’t tell with these breeds if there are any males. 🧐. . .

Volunteers are the best! This year I have volunteer sunflowers, marigolds, tomatoes, zucchini and this very lovely, firecracker resembling, dill. Next year I’d love some volunteer weed pullers! 😉. . .

The sun was shy yesterday but despite the clouds, it was lovely to be by the water and besides I had my son-shine @nobee99 with me, and that’s all the light I need. 😍. . .

Hi! It’s me. I haven’t checked in since New Year’s and since today was my birthday, it’s another sort of new year. So cheers to continuous opportunities for new beginnings. Love is the way my friends, love is the way. 💕. . . .
