About Me

My photo
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!

Liked the pictures Jientje, I always liked looking at a herd of cows. Gurnsey's were always my favorite. Love the Cow's Eye picture, always thought that Cows have the Prettiest Eyes.

Thank you for sharing

Yucky. I know some people thing cows are cute. I say...yucky. But at least I don't fear them like I fear horses.

OH my goodness..what great photos. I like the captions. Excellent. I never knew cows and bulls could look so good. Have a great time with Gattina today :) Aloha

Hi Jientje...How do cows stay so clean and fresh looking?
The bull in the last photo looks so tough and strong...but...I noticed he's drooling like a baby!
Have a mooootiful day Jientje!

The landscape pictures I have seen before as paintings in museums. Beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing them.

Suburban Girl said...

Great captures. I love the idea of loving cows but in reality I would rather love looking at your photos of cows!

That bull reminds me of that guy at the gym that is working out his muscles under the approving eyes of the female humans :) Gorgeous! They look well cared of - fed as nature intended with grass - that milk they give probably tastes like heavenly liquid! Send some this way in a chocolate box!

All I can think of is milk and cheese...drool...delightful, so gorgeous they are.

Very pastoral. Makes me feel lazy, like I need to take a nap under a big Oak Tree, listening to cows moo and the breeze in the leaves.

A field full of steaks.As an old farm boy I just loved the pictures.

I wonder why both of the cow's ears are tagged - -unless it was to balance her ensemble -- though I would have picked a whole different style of earrings to go with that hide.

Great pics, Jientje!

They are so cute, especially the white one!

Just catching up with you agaim. That black/white cow that is laying down looks like she was handpainted. I read all the other posts and they are just great. I am so in love with your beautiful country! Glad to know your father is doing so well! You are such a gracious host by sharing your life with us! Thanks Jientje!!

spacedlaw said...

That last one looked grumpy. What have you done (or not done) to it?

Gattina said...

Cows have such beautiful eyes ! Real beautiful and so lively pictures. I couldn't comment yesterday, I was busy elsewhere, lol !
Good morning !

De eerste foto is zo typisch "koe": op een rustige wijze heel erg nieuwsgierig...

@ Bill: I have always loved cows, and you're right about their eyes, they're beautiful!
@ Loree: Yes, it came out really well!
@ Korie: I love cows, I can't see what's yuckie about them? But maybe that's because I grew up with them?
@ Thom: Thank you, that's sweet of you!
@ Wanda: You have a very sharp eye, that bull was drooling you're right about that. He was because he was angry at me, I was in his territory.
@ moneythoughts: Flemish Primitives?
@ Rebecca: Well, you can here!
@ Libby: Yes; I love their eyes too, they have that soft look.
@ Sarah: Me too!
@ ellievellie: I don't like milk myself, but the chocolate is a great idea!
@ MrsLittleJeans: I prefer the cheese.
@ Kim: You paint a wonderful picture with your words.
@ Dr John: Lol at the field of steaks!
@ Quilly: I don't like those earrings. They always make me feel sad.
@ Kristi: Yes, the white one was my favorite model!
@ Paz: It was!
@ Becky: I'm so glad you enjoyed my posts!
@ spacedlaw: He was very annoyed by my presence.
@ Gattina: We were, we had fun, didn't we?
