Rain and sun

The weather has been pretty crazy over here lately: it cannot make its mind. One minute it's raining cats and dogs, the next it's beautifully sunny. And back to rain and cold. And sun. And rain.
Lucky I have a handbag big enough to fit an umbrella, sunglasses, my stripey cotton scarf and a little cover for my bicycle seat (very handy when it's totally wet and you don't want to have a wet bum at the supermarket) - that way I'm prepared for any weather!

I can't say I love this type of weather, especially when it lasts for days, but it does have two very good points:
1. the parks, fields and plants get all the water they could wish for and hence look beautifully green
2. when the sun does peak through the clouds it makes me feel tremendously happy. It reminds me that I should not take things for granted. It's good to be reminded of that from time to time... :-)


  1. Thanks for looking at the bright side. I was beginning to despair here in Amsterdam, but there are benefits. And I guess we deserve it after enjoying too-good-to-be true weather in April. I'll remember those days as I bike through the rain.

  2. the weather forecast looks slightly better for the end of the weekend and for next week - fingers crossed summer is really on its way! :-)
