Turning A New Leaf (and some other ramblings...)

Yes, we have leased a Nissan Leaf (electric car) and it is just fabulous! 

It feels like driving a sports car, at least compared to driving my minivan... <wink> We have wanted to make this green choice for quite a while now and are very happy with this decision. The rule is that whoever will be driving the longest distance that day, gets to drive the Leaf. So far that is working out pretty good!

Over the weekend we had some wonderful Spring weather and tasty drinks were had outside. (= anis flavoured Pastis) I also purchased Spring-like clogs/ sandals from Swedish Hasbeens ('Ornament'). The funny thing is that my sister in The Netherlands has exactly the same ones and I purchased mine without realizing that!  <wink>

Of course now it is raining again so not the best time to wear them... On Monday, when the weather was getting more cloudy, but still warm, my Dutch friend A. and myself walked over to the Tulip 'field' that I had spotted during one of my runs...

And this morning I put together this little Spring/ Summer top out of some lovely Liberty fabric that was given to me by a good friend. The pieces of fabric were very small so I had to improvise some. (no way to avoid the blue stripe I'm afraid)  I think this will be become a very wearable top!  {smile}
