But here are some images to show our week(s):
We visited the stables of the Chateau de Versailles and watched a training performance of the Lusitano horses.
Unfortunately we were not allowed to take pictures inside... If you're interested, have a look at http://www.acadequestre.fr/.
And of course, still real Dutchies, we went by bike!
Furthermore, we had some unexpected guests in our garden:
The black and white cats were pretty friendly, the reddish one quite unfriendly and Senna (in her own garden) got scared and took off!
At home, we had some guests as well and because of the springy weather, it needed to feel like spring at the table too:
Outside it was still too pale, so I added some colour (but there's still a lot to be done!!):
Apart from all this, the guest room has been painted, curtains are up there, so are the lamps on the wall (now just need to clean & decorate the room), big lamps are hanging above the dining table, as are the lamps in the hall way and the living room, etc. Quite productive, don't you think?
Have a lovely week!!
P.S. Wanna see some nice jewelry and have a chance to win some too? Have a look at http://sweet-as-a-candy.blogspot.com/. Good luck!!

Finally I got back to exercising; jazzercise that is. Feeling sore already... Nice combination of dancing, aerobics & toning. I feel muscles that I didn't even remember having them.
Hope it'll be better soon as I have planned to start painting the guest room because our first guests are expected end of this month already, my parents. Looking forward to that!
When that is done I have to finish some curtain projects, buy some lamps (for the dining area is getting crucial now, too dark there!), cleaning out the basement and hopefully the weather will then be nice enough to start working in the garden. Really need to as it looks like a wilderness now (apparently the previous tenants were not so keen on maintaining the garden).
We, on the contrary, love to be outside, surrounded by beautiful plants & flowers. So don't worry that I'm getting bored here in Versailles! No time for that!!
And do you see the flowers? Aren't they just gorgeous? Got them this morning from a friend, for our new home. I feel so spoilt (thanks so much Manuela!).
I made a to-do list last night, so let's see where to start...
Have a lovely Wednesday!

Spring is definitely in the air!
After a stormy & rainy Sunday, the week started with a beautiful sunny Monday! It's still pretty chilly during the night, but the days are already getting longer, sunnier & warmer! Love that!
Let's hope it will continue... let it be spring soon!
As you can see, the garden is ready for it too!!
Enjoy this sunny Tuesday!
