The one with the things I liked this week (66)

Days flew by this week and I can't believe weekend's almost here again. Reason for that might be that monday was a national holiday and I mostly stayed away from all things work related. We annually celebrate Liberation Day on may 5th, to mark the end of the occupation during World War II. Festivals are held at many places and a parade is held with veterans in the city of Wageningen. Part of the parade are old airplanes, of which many flew over my F & R's backyard (where I made some new friends as well), where we celebrated the liberation with a glass of champagne and some very tasty chocolates. I think it's great that we take a moment each year to celebrate and appreciate our freedom, the fact that we can speak our minds, and we live in a country where (most) people respect each other. 





Other than that, I came across a guy hidden in some green on a bikeride on my way to lunch with R & L. I did some window shopping after work, where I came across this truer than true quote: 'Life's too short to blend in'. I'm not quite sure if I like the last photo though. Not being in my twenties anymore might take some special 'tools' to fight gravity. At least I think the package looks good :-) I also like that this brand doesn't test on animals. I have high hopes that the mirror will tell me one of these days that I don't look a day over 18!




How was your week? Special plans for the weekend?

    1. For some reason I thought he (or she) was going to jump up all of a sudden, but it just stayed there peacefully, enjoying the sun.

  2. Aww...hello little frog - so cute!
    Love the first photo and the pink hydrant (?). The quote on the window definitely applies to me :) You always find such cool things in your town!
    So GREAT you bought a product that does not test on animals (it's something that's close to my heart). And as for age - you look like early twenties to me :)
    have a wonderful weekend!

    1. If we would all just buy non-animal tested products. I read a while ago that large cosmetics brands stopped testing on animals, but started doing so again in order to be able to sell in China again. They are forced by some sort of law to test on animals. If they don't they are not allowed to sell their products there.

  6. That frog picture is so cute! I love frogs, I think they're adorable :) I've never heard of liberation day before, but it sounds like a lot of fun! "Life is too short to lend in" should be everyone's motto, dressing in funky clothes is so much fun xx
