Am happy to start a new month, because August was too hot and so busy!
Rosh Hashanah has become an event for us in more recent years. It’s the Jewish New Year.
Discovered that invariably things shift or change around that time (not in December/January). It will be the year 5779 and some of the meanings are to counsel, to plan, heard it also has to do with “create.” Can’t wait to see what this year has in store.
When entering a new period, it’s always good to look back at the old and have closure.
A look into the old way of making planks
of wood in the Netherlands.
Need electricity? The old way: a mill getting the energy from the wind.
That means there are usually strong winds.
Inside the mill the wood is cut with a huge
band saw or a circular saw.
When the wood arrives, the trunks are kept in the water, to age the wood without them drying out.
We lived for a short time on the country side,
close to Arnhem. Had a big yard with several blooming trees. My favorite tree was this one.
Its scientific name is Laburnum, and common name is Golden Rain.
It was at least 20 feet
tall and blooms in the spring.
Hope this tree will never have to be cut!
I get a kick out of things done in previous
century without electricity. My favorite one
is the coffee mill. Do you have
something favorite from the past,
yhat has completely changed?
