About Me

Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!


Heaven is in Belgium

Ruby Tuesday, Famous Last .. Pictures

Can you imagine next week it will be one whole year since the first Ruby Tuesday?
How time flies!!

Although I wish it would fly today!!! I'm sitting here biting my fingernails, waiting for that phone call telling me to come get my camera!! I hope they'll call me SOON!!! Please please please? I'm so anxious to get my new camera, does it show? Hmm, I guess it does.
Life just is not the same without it, it's terrible!!

As soon as I get that phone call I'll do an update.
No update means no camera. Okay, let's not go there huh? Aww!

I've got two more pictures from that tragic "last walk" with my camera, and I saved them for this Ruby Tuesday. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them!

( And now I'm off to bite my fingers some more! Holy Moses, I'm so desperate I could bite my toenails!)

Look for more Ruby Tuesday pictures at Work of the Poet.
UPDATE: I just got off the phone with the shop. It looks like the camera is out of stock at Canon
Belgium right now. With a long weekend ahead, this news just made me loose all hope I'm still going to get it this week. It's going to be a long week. Oh and I know it's not the end of the world, I know ...

Great red and gorgeous countryside! This was perfect for Ruby Tuesday.

Its really okay if you bite your own toenails while waiting for your camera -- just don't bite anyone else's! And think how I felt -- Amoeba made me wait almost 6 weeks for my camera lenses! (Thus insuring I would be exceptionally careful with the new ones!)

Gattina said...

Beautyful, doesn't look tragic at all ! Where the heck did you order this camera ?? I would have died already if I had to wait that long. Patience has never been my forte ! I hope for you the phone call had come already before you could read my comment !!

Beautiful pictures as always. I love that fence all by itself being red in that field. Very well done. I'll keep everything crossed for your camera. I hope they call real soon. Aloha my friend :)

I can only imagine the history that old building has seen. Do you know how old it would be Jientje?

Love the pictures, got my fingers and toes crossed for you getting your new camera soon.

Jama said...

I thank God I live in a city where malls and shops are nearby, I'll die waiting if I'm in your place.
Hopefully you'll get your call soon.

"Pleeease" don't bite your toenails Jientje...Loved the photos...as if nature were slowly reclaiming the small shed.

aspiritofsimplicity said...

Oh I just love that first picture. Beautiful. I am waiting anxiously for your new camera also.

Ballerina Girl said...

Nice...I really enjoy seeing the hills of other countries!
What Canon do you use? Your macro work is great!


BioniKat said...

All your photos look like they could be made into a jigsaw puzzle.

Your pictures are gorgeously red!! love that old fence!
I couldn't wait like you do. I would have gone to the store to get it. Immediately! I have no patience at all. Hope your new toy arrives NOW-

Bientje said...

Chewed off toenails in flipflops... Bweurk sis!
Stick to the fingernails, that's bad enough already!
Big hug!
Your little sister

United Studies said...

I am over here in Virginia waiting anxiously, too!!

RA said...

Beautiful rubies! Hopefully you get the call today, Jientje :)

Auntie E said...

Hope you get that camera. I so need a better one. Like the Red Gate. So old yet still red! Happy RT
Have a garden ruby Tuesday up also. can get to it from Home. Just look.. upper right Link on Page.

Melli said...

Ohhhhhh I am sorry about the camera... AGAIN! Darn! How long do you suppose it will take now?

The red gate is FABULOUS!

floreta said...

i really like the first picture and tiling on the roof!

Caution/Lisa said...

I can't wait for you to get that camera. BUT I do believe you could use a throw-away camera and still take beautiful pix. You're that good :)

Relax the camera will come when it comes.
Sort your old pictures. Keep busy.
The pictures for today are great. There are some old places in Upper Michigan that look like that. I found that very interesting.

Unknown said...

Beautiful photographs. I wonder if Canon realize what good publicity you are for their cameras - and what bad publicity this is - the fact that you STILL don't have your new camera.

Marie Reed said...

I'm over from your other blog and... you're right BIGGER is better! Gorgeous! I'm following here too now:)

Grace Albaugh said...

I too ordered a new camera. Two and a half weeks ago! It's torture! I feel your pain. Hang in there my darlin.

Momisodes said...

You always manage to find these gorgeous landscapes. It looks so lush and green over there!

What great choices for ruby tuesday!

Jientje said...

@ Oh but I WILL be careful, don't you worry!
@ Gattina: Thank you my friend, but it didn't!
@ Thom: thanks, Mahalo
@ Bill: I have no idea how old it is.
@ Jama: Can't do nothing but wait.
@ Wanda: thanks

Got my fingers crossed, hoping that you get THE CALL:-D

Dianne said...

Melli said...
