Today we went for a walk and we stopped at café-restaurant Hammingh for a meal.
Beef, salmon, more beef....
Now this is more like it!
I didn't think to bring the Ranch dressing though, so mayonaise it is!
And a nice cool beer!
For dessert we had Poffert with ice cream.
Poffert is a kind of cake, but less sweet than cake. It's got vanilla in it and it's served warm. It's a tradional Groninger dish and this was the first time I got to try it.
It was really tasty!
We should have Poffert again soon I think.

There was a huge package today for me and Voodoo Bride from Jess Haines.
We got the package because Voodoo Bride won a contest on Jess'blog and because Jess is awesome!
There was tons of yummie chocolatey goodness in the package. We had to put it in containers to keep it all from taking over the available space on the dining-table.
Oh! Chocolate pretzels! And even more yummie chocolate
And Ranch dressing. According to Jess it's delicious if you dip your french fries in it. I will give that a try. Usually I use mayonaise.
And last, but certainly not least: Three signed books!
Taken by the Others is for a friend of ours as we already have a signed copy of that book, but the others are all ours!!!
What an awesome package!!!
(and Binah too as I understand she helped with picking out what chocolates to include.)

After work we went for a walk.
Lots of dandelions are already done blooming.
When we got home there was a package from my owner's friend Jan.
There was chocolate and an Easter card inside.
The chocolate was meant as a kind of toy as well.
You can make funny animals with it!

Yesterday we visited my owner's family to catch up on some birthdays. It was beautiful weather and we sat outside enjoying the sun and cool drinks.
In the evening we went home again by train.
While we were waiting for the train to arrive I did some exploring.
I wonder what that circle is for.
Maybe it's for indicating where you have to sit and wait for the train.
But my owner and her OtherHalf didn't feel like sitting on the ground while waiting, so finally I went over to the bench they were sitting on to wait together with them.
We had a great day!

The beautiful weather is holding up and as we had the day off today, my owner and me spend some time relaxing outside on the balcony.
We got a free puzzle book and I solved a couple of the puzzles.
Late in the afternoon we went for a walk and I paused from time to time to smell the flowers. A great day.

Today we went into town to buy a nice Easter branch. We first made a stop at a croissanterie though to get lunch. There were lots of different salads and stuff to chose from.
When we got home we got out our Easter decorations.
And then we decorated the Easter branches we bought! It looks fun and festive I think.
