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!


Heaven is in Belgium

( Almost) Wordless Wednesday



How wonderful to wake up to this gorgeous pink sunrise after a gloomy day like yesterday! What a difference a day makes!

Yes, a much nicer way to start the day! Love the wisps of pink!

Avril said...

Stunning ... calming colours!

Love your gloomy day photo from previous post - Neil Diamond also from 'my time' and actually looked at his Greatest Hits CD in the shop this morning - must get it.
Lobster!!! Oooohh, I'm sure it was very tasty indeed after his fame over the internet!!

Beautiful morning, Jientje!

Yes, I love the photo today, but do you think it would be fair if every day was a beautiful day in Belgium? : )

Beau-u-tiful! At what time does the sun rise?

Jientje said...

@ The French Bear : Thanks!
@ DescribeHappy : It was the first thing I saw when I got out of bed!
@ Avril : It was so pretty, I got out of bed and immediately grabbed my camera!
And yes, that lobster sure was tasty!
@ Wanda : It was a morning to cherish!
@ moneythoughts : Every day should be a beautiful day anywhere in this world, but then we would probably not appreciate it as much, would we?
@ Ida from South Africa : This picture was taken at eight twenty.

Hi Jientje...Perfect image for Wordless Wednesday. Such breathtaking beauty speaks for itself, no words are needed.

Best Wishes,

I love those colors, we get a sky like that in California sometimes in the summer. So pretty.

Just that faint touch of the pink to the sky, raising the mood so that one believes that fairies will indeed step out and dance on the shoulders.

'What a difference a day makes' - and I have a song stuck in my head too! :)
Lovely sky!
