Well, wokeup this morning to fog...

Yep, very foggy here today, ah but wait... there is some sun coming out. Really funny how sometimes Amsterdam really does remind me of San Francisco, or vice-versa. Right now the temp. is around latter 50's to 60's but still quite incredible. As of tomorrow, Thursday, it is predicted to hit around 70 (this is degrees btw).

For now I'm having a break from school, (1 week). This is called Inburgering, which is a very complicated word for The Netherlands sending you to school so that you can somewhat easily adapt and become familiar with their way of life including language. Ok, I'll say nothing about the lanugage, but have to confess that I now understand and (on some good days with coffee), speak the language decently, ok enough to be understood and get by on.

So that's all for now folks, will go out today to one of my favorite neighborhoods to the street market and shops. Next time, I'll tell you about how incredible the designs in home, gardens and interiors are. I MEAN MIND BLOWING! dag!

Today is so grey with rain and clouds that I thought that I'd go the opposite way (positive thinking), by posting Amsterdam at its finest with flowers and clear skies. Considering how late it is in the season and that the weather is still someone (t-shirt) worthy... one really can't complain. By the way it is raining so hard right now that it actually hurts!

A hearty welcome to Onley-A-Blog...

Welcome to my blog site! This will be the opportunity for me to keep you updated on what is going on in the ever changing world of home furnishings, fashion, and honestly just about anything that I may feel could be of interest(s) to you. So, considering that I'm new to this wonderful world of blogging, you'll be able to witness my mistakes, errors, etc., but hopefully I'll get better as time goes by.

As this is my first blog, I am happy to say that I'm coming to you live from Amsterdam. I am tempted to give you my take on this city but we must save something for future dates, right?... RIGHT? Great, hopefully you will check back periodically to see what the scoop is. Until then... dag, and should you get bored, please check out my designs at: Onley Make Believe!
