If a vacation opportunity should "fall into our laps," we will try to take advantage. ;)
The weather when we arrived was sunny and very pleasant, but that did not last long enough. Friday we woke up to rain. And rain it did all day and night. But being the "dutchies" that we are, that did not stop us. My hub had "charged" our Renault SUV, and we could travel. Actually we didn't make it outside of town, but we got a lot accomplished.
Remember that Deventer carpet/rug we bought online from our favorite auction house? Well, we picked it up after stopping by our favorite thrift store to buy perhaps the smallest (and cheapest!!!) color television and tv stand that we have ever owned. The carpet is still folded up and sitting where my hub dropped it when he lugged it into the living room. We will get to unfolding it and examining it later this weekend.
By midnight last night my hub had programmed the new(old) tv so that we can see 50+ channels (four of them BBC--yay!). So even if it rains, life is good. I can watch Monty Don on Gardener's World every Friday evening and Jamie Oliver making his "gorgeous" and "literally" meals.
And our laptop and iPad and landline and cell phones keep us in contact with more people than we even know.
So we are ready for the remodeling to begin.
Kom op, jongens! (Come on, guys!)
