Sunday in Yellow

Autumn on the Oudegracht

Not much to say today. The weather has been chilly but nice here in Utrecht and the autumn colours are still going strong. Pippo and I went for a long walk this morning and I spent the afternoon making erwtensoep (split pea soup) for tonight’s dinner. The time change last night has thrown us all off, though. We all still woke early and now the afternoon is dragging. Pippo, who is a creature of habit and schedule, is seeming a bit discombobulated that we’re not keeping to schedule.

For all of you dealing with the possibility of Hurricane Sandy in the US, I hope you’re all safe and don’t get any damage or inconvenience. One thing I don’t miss is the threat of major storms. May your waters be as calm as the Oudegracht.
