Monday, Tuesday.

Sometimes things happen in your life that make you sad, so very sad that you don’t know what to do but cry and hide.

That’s why I didn’t post for a while.

Some days ago we went for a ride in the country. I made some photo’s and I want to show  few of them.



Those lovely dogs jumped in the river all the time and had so much fun.













I am linking this post to Mosaic Monday :

Blue Monday:

Monday Murals:

Monday Mellow Yellows :

and Our World Tuesday:

Have a nice week everybody.

Wat naar dat je zoveel verdriet hebt (gehad), Riet...we willen het liefst een ander en onszelf alleen maar gelukkig zien, maar helaas is dat in het leven niet altijd het geval. Veel sterkte gewenst.

Liefs, Ingrid

Het spijt me te horen dat je een droevige periode in je leven doormaakt, Riet. Helaas krijgen we op z'n tijd allemaal het nodige verdriet te verwerken. Ik kan je daar alleen maar sterkte bij wensen.

Riet, I am very sorry you have been sad. I hope things are better for you and I know that all your blogging friends are thinking of you and hoping too.

I hope the drive into the country and the beautiful scenery gave you a few moments of peace and happiness.

(Sometimes I look at my blogging as my happy place where I can forget problems for a few moments and just pretend that my whole world is about nothing but beautiful scenery and flowers and happy days!)

Hello Riet
Thanks for the visit to my blog and I wish you sunny days ahead for whatever the personal grief is you suffered.
A lovely mosaic, watching the dogs would have been fun.

Dearest Riet

That's so sad - I wish I lived nearby and could give you a hug, but I'm 12,000 miles away across the ocean in New Zealand.
However I'm sending you warm virtual hugs and love too.

Your photos today are beautiful as always - and yes those dogs were having such a fun time I can see.

Happy Blue Monday!

Maggie said...

Dear Riet, so sorry to hear that you've been blue, I hope you're starting to feel a little better this week.
Love your collages this week, watching dogs playing especially in water always cheers me up.

Wanneer iemand plotseling stopt met bloggen begin ik me altijd af te vragen waarom en hoop dat er niet iets ernstigs aan de hand is. Droevig te horen dat je iets naar hebt meegemaakt. Ik wens je het allerbeste met je verdriet en neem je tijd ervoor.
Groeten, Marianne

Hi Reit, I am sorry you have had a tragic time and it has made you unhappy. This shall pass and venturing into the country was a perfect solution. Beautiful shots. Take care and blessed be.

LV said...

As always, you share some of the best sights ever. Loved the dogs playing. Sorry, but life tends to allow bad times to creep in now and then. You are a a strong lady and will do just fine. Stay busy.

Lorrie said...

I'm so sorry to read that you've gone through a difficult time. I hope the heartache is easing now. How lovely to see your photos of the beautiful Netherlands.

I]m glad you are feeling a bit better now, Riet, and posting again. These photos are wonderful!

Jeanne said...

Dear Riet, I so hope everything looks better right now. I have been sad too. My sister has Ovarion Cancer and will have surgery in two weeks. I am so scared for her. She is my backyard neighbor and we are so close.
Time with our loved ones is so precious isn't it?

Your photos did make me smile today. Thank you. I love the dogs and the lovely flowers. Your photos 'always' make me smile. I mean it.
Hugs, Jeanne

Barb said...

Hope your beautiful landscapes uplift your spirits like they did mine.

Hannah said...

I enjoyed your photos of the lovely countryside and windmill, I hope the dogs and lovely day were comforting to you in your time of distress, and that you can feel the presence of the One who cares for you.

Khammany @ Sweet Inspired Home said...

I know that I just "met" you but I understand how it feels to be so sad about something, and not have any desire to do much more, and needing solitude. I hope things are getting better for you.
I am so happy to have found you, I love finding bloggers in Europe who blog in English. I am fascinated with the lifestyle over there so I look forward to seeing more! Thanks for sharing some of your country side visit with us! I am a new follower!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Riet, I know what you mean, as I've had family sadness and disappointment also this summer. Let's pray together that better days are ahead!

Your windmill photos always fill me with happiness! I lobed the photo of the running dogs, too, as they looked so joyful!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Riet, I am so sorry that you have had a rough spell...I know the feeling...went through a horrible time from December, thru this past May...things get better. I am happy that you enjoyed your journey into the country...those beautiful flowers and charming dogs, had to make you smile...warm heart greetings coming your way~

It is hard to feel happy when something in our life is not going well. A drive or a walk can get rid of some of the cobwebs for a while. I do hope your sadness will pass and you will be your sunny self again. The photos were lovely and I was happy to see some of the same flowers there as we see here. Valerie
