For the past week or so we’ve been enjoying/suffering (depends on the point of view, I suppose!) a heat wave in the Netherlands, much like most surrounding countries. I enjoy these temperatures and have been able to catch up on tanning on our roof terrace – cozily stretched out on a large towel, my head on a pillow, sipping ice cold cola and listening to music from Spotify on our PS4 – in between the last preparations I need to make for our wedding and that last dangling retake. As it stands right now, I won’t be getting my propaedeutic diploma this year, but I’m trying not to beat myself over that. My last retake is for TX2, which was a bit of a surprise since I was confident with my assignment. Ah, well. Live and learn.
Speaking of wedding preparations, a few more things have been crossed off the considerable to-do- list. Our cake size has been finalized, our afternoon entertainment ordered, and another meeting planned with our restaurant to go through the last details – woohoo!
I’m still going to get some stuff printed (our guestbook-poster, which I REALLY WANT TO POST BUT I SHOULDN’T), home-printing maps for our Finnish guests and tiny bit of DIY for the place cards. The weather is still a bit of a question mark, since as I see it, this heat wave will end with a bunch of rain, and depending on the favor of the weather gods, we might either be marrying in sweltering heat or pouring rain.
Not sure which sounds nicer at this point.
Awhile ago we popped by to see the free demonstration at Dragonheart in Enschede, where they keep a bunch of owls and do demonstrations and such. Here’s a photo of myself absolutely overjoyed with an owl called Anduril!
Owls are such amazing critters. My future hubby took a bunch more photos than I did, since I was SO focused on watching the owls.
