Early evening

this was saturday evening, when driving home. the sky was so pretty! and all the black dots are birds that were flying around in a huge flock.
right now its an early morning and the only color outside is grey. with lots of rain. beeeehhhh!!

Water barrier

with much of the country below sea level, we have many dikes to protect the land from the water... like the one above! we drove there yesterday. dont know whether the person walking on the dike was aware that i specifically wanted to include her in the picture (while sitting in the car, haha)

Dutch meadow

and heres the typical dutch flat (very flat!) landscape. at least, when you leave the city.... 
so yes, we do have a car again. we didnt go long without one, selling the previous one sometime last december...
today we brought some stuff to goodwill. our house is too small and the amount of stuff too big. but then we went inside the store and bought some new stuff... an endless cycle. hahahahaha. then we drove around amsterdam, going through the small towns with the cute houses, the tiny streets, and the green pastures connecting it all.... so pretty! an added bonus; at some moments it almost looked sunny...
