My owner has been busy making packages and writing cards these last few days so I decided to join in the fun and wrote a card myself today. It went in an envelope together with a little something extra and was mailed this afternoon. Now I just have to finish my little somthing for Beanie and get that packed and posted too. Better get a move on.
When we got home from the postoffice I was in the mood for a drink and got one of the weird drinks we bought at the Amazing Oriental Warehouse this saturday.
Pearl Soybean Drink with Tapioca Ball? Hmmm.......
Looks like a normal drink at first sight... Where is that Tapioca Ball they mention?
Aha! Found them! Not just one Tapioca Ball, but lots of them! Very strange: it were little gelatinous balls that floated around at the bottom of the glass. They didn't have much taste, but the drink in all was ok.
We walked to Garnwerd again yesterday. Our route seems to be part of the Saksen Route.
We encountered a very friendly cow, she made no suspicious eating moves in my direction.
On a tree we saw these mushrooms. Autumn is here!
On the field next to the tree there was a blue van. I wonder why it was there.
Beautiful picture of one of the lights in cafe-restaurant Hammingh.
The mill in Garnwerd was still working when we passed it. It doesn't actually have a grinding stone anymore so it's just for show I must tell you.
We paid another short visit to the Church in Oostum. There's this sign next to the church door that I love as it uses a bit archaic language. It says: conjugate/join at number 19 What they mean is that you have to go to house nr 19 to get the key of the church if you want to go inside.
A beautiful old stone with beautiful writing. It says 21 and not 2J in case you were wondering.
Today my owner was in the mood to cook something foreign and as she decided on an Indonesian dish we paid a visit to the Amazing Oriental Warehouse. It has lots of oriental foods and spices and such and it is the best place in Groningen to go when you need something exotic for your cooking.
It also has a huge amount of canned drinks in all kinds of flavours!
I love these bottles, they're so beautiful!
Some kind of weird fruit. According to my owner's OH this fruit has a very strong smell so that's probably why they keep it in a fridge.
We ended up buying way more then we actually needed, which always happens when we go there. Here's some of our loot: new bowls, noodles, chopsticks and a strange and very sweet drink called Chubby blueberry
Having had a couple of frustrating days at work me and my owner had a nice glass of Dropshot yesterday (Drop = liquorice). I know what some people will say, but I can tell you: I was not drunk! Just in a very good mood after drinking it ;-)
Today we didn't have to go to work so we went into town for some shopping. I saw this sheep in a shop window and thought she had a weird coat for a sheep. I wonder if Frank, the sheep at our work, is related to this one.
Yesterday my owner forgot to take her phone with her to work so we couldn't take any pictures! Now I could tell you that the most amazing stuff happened, but to be honest: nothing much happened so you didn't miss out on anything.
Today there was a large envelope in the mail for my owner. I stuck around while she opened it, because you never know: someone might have send something to my owner that was meant for me.
But no such luck this time: it was a cross stitch magazine. Not my cup of tea, but my owner was very happy with it.
I'm part of a large family of pigs.
We all live with my owner in Groningen, the Netherlands.
I travel a lot with my owner and I post stories and pictures of my life and travels on my blog. I also have a blog where I post book reviews.
