Beach Sign

Totaal niet op de planning, maar te leuk om hem niet in de challenge van Ingrid mee te laten doen. Vorige week, toen mijn vriendin hier een jacuzzi avondje kwam doen, vertelde zij over een "beach sign". Ze wilde er één gaan maken om in haar tuin te zetten en vroeg of ze wat plankjes van ons mocht.

Ze liet me inspiratie zien op Pinterest en ik was verkocht! Dit wilde ik ook maken. Afgelopen dinsdag zijn we aan de slag gegaan en ik kan zeggen met een heel leuk resultaat! Ik laat, zoals elke keer, hieronder in stappen zien hoe ik/we die gemaakt hebben en als laatste natuurlijk het eindresultaat. Nog een extra uitdaging deden we erbij, het mocht geen geld kosten. We zouden uitsluitend materiaal gebruiken wat in ons bezit was. 

We zochten restjes verf en zouden wel zien hoe we ze gingen gebruiken. 

Zagen is voor mij echt te zwaar momenteel, dus mijn vriendin zorgde voor mooie plankjes. 

Schuin en recht, alles mocht en alles kon. Dikke plankjes en dunne plankjes, maakte niet uit. 

Alle kleurtjes uitgestald en we waren zelfs zo creatief om ook gewoon kleuren te mengen. 

De plankjes die mijn vriendin geschilderd heeft.

Mijn plankjes en de bloempot die ik ook maar een kleurtje gegeven heb. Hier komt mijn beach sign in te staan.

De teksten hebben we met dunne kwastjes geschilderd. Die vond ik nog ergens in mijn schilderbak en ik weet totaal niet wat ik er ooit mee wilde doen hahaha.

Even kijken hoe hij staat, want hij is hier nog niet af. Hij moet nog afgewerkt worden en een beetje gestyled. 

Ik was erg op dreef met de gele verf en terwijl ik het dacht, sprak mijn vriendin het uit. Waarom schilder je het vogelhuisje ook niet? Dus vanaf nu een knalgeel vogelhuisje met fuchsia dak. 

Mijn resultaat! 

Ik vind hem nog te lang, dus ik moet nog een stuk van de onderkant af laten zagen. Dat laat ik manlief gewoon doen.

Als afwerking heb ik tussen de plankjes sisal touw gebruikt. Gewoon er omheen gedraaid.

Op de plankjes heb ik wat schelpen geplakt die ik gevonden had aan zee, toen ik een dagje naar Encautichris ben geweest.

De pot gevuld met zand en ter decoratie wat keien uit de tuin gehaald en in de pot gedaan. Ook ter versteviging van de paal.

Ik vind hem helemaal geweldig!

Dit is het resultaat van mijn vriendin en de foto is ook gemaakt in haar tuin.

Zij had er voor gekozen om de paal in een lichte kleur te schilderen.

Wel heeft ze ook met sisal touw gewerkt, maar op een andere manier en natuurlijk ook schelpen als decoratie.

Ze gaat zelf regelmatig naar zee met haar partner en ze komt geloof ik nooit thuis zonder nieuwe schelpen.

Mijn vriendin had nog een mooie roze pot en die paste natuurlijk heel goed bij haar eindresultaat.

Ook deze vind ik zelf helemaal geweldig en toch ook weer heel anders als die ik gemaakt heb. 

Het was een top dag! Ondanks het warme weer. 

Weer een leuke invulling van deze challenge. Ditmaal dus niet geschikt als kado voor een ander, maar een mooi kado voor mijzelf. Wel een dag waar ik meer dan ruim over mijn grens gegaan ben, want dit is eigenlijk voor mij te zwaar geweest en daar heb ik nu nog last van...

Toch kijk ik terug op een leuke creatieve dag met mijn vriendin. Gelukkig woont ze maar een paar deuren verder en kon ze die van haar ook gewoon dragend mee naar huis nemen. Wel zo handig, want het is best groot geworden!

Lees hieronder wat ik allemaal nog meer maakte in deze challenge van Ingrid.

The Other Side of Emigrating to the United States
#journalism Newspaper article. Topic: Emigration of Venezuelans. Author: Darimel Urdaneta (MeredithSkywalker) The other side of immigrating to the United States There are many reasons why a Venezuelan decides to emigrate, but they all conclude that in Venezuela there is no future or quality of life, that is why many decide to leave to different parts of Latin America, but in recent months there has been a boom of migrating to the land of opportunities such as the United States of America. Learn the story of Irma, an 80-year-old lady who, with the help of another Venezuelan, managed to cross the river de grande from Mexico to the United States. Irma is a native of Maracaibo Venezuela, and at 80 years old she managed to cross the border with the United States. Irma had fainted while trying to cross the river and another Venezuelan helped her cross and arrived safely to the mainland. The humanitarian crisis that Venezuela is going through has forced Venezuelans to escape from the need that is currently experiencing in Venezuela. Some states in the country suffer from electrical fluctuations, such as total loss of electricity by hours or even days. There are no medicines, medical care is precarious. No public transport, no food on the shelves and where a Venezuelan can get food is at very high prices, since the minimum wage is $3 per month, and for a family of 4 people you need $350 for the basic food basket for one month. And besides all this is insecurity, there are guerrillas, criminal gangs and the most feared is the police themselves who harms Venezuelans, many Venezuelans have been persecuted politicians and that is why they flee Venezuela. At the OAS, David Smolansky warned that estimates the number of Venezuelans abroad will reach 7 million and recalled that the Venezuelan is leaving the country due to the crisis and the world “must welcome us”. According to France 24, Venezuelan citizens pay up to 12,000 dollars to coyotes to cross from Mexico to the US illegally. However, they highlight that the arrival of undocumented immigrants on US soil has broken records, and according to the Customs and Border Protection Office (CBP), in April they had recorded the highest figures in the last 20 years: more than 178,000 people arrived irregularly, in many cases putting their lives at risk. Just as there are stories with happy endings like that of Mrs. Irma, there are heartbreaking stories, as is the case of Ana N (her name is protected) a Venezuelan woman who crossed with her two children and her husband, they had paid a coyote to cross them along the river and the current was high by that date. In view of the fact that Ana's youngest son was crying, a crying coyote decided to throw the baby into the river, the people who witnessed this atrocious act could not do anything, as a coyote is part of Mexican cartels, however the father of the creature threw himself into the river to try to save his son but his effort was in vain since the baby had died. The question of emigrating is not only crossing the river, because when you cross into cells inside the United States shelter, you can spend days there without being able to communicate with your relatives, how can you also not bathe until a week passes. That's what Juan N told us (his name is protected), he told us about his journey from Maracaibo to the United States. “One morning they went to pick me up in Monterrey, the driver who was going to take me to Ciudad Acuña, passed with a caravan like 10 cars. From Monterrey to Ciudad Acuña they were about 6 hours. Among the drivers were communicating about the alcabala, and there are police officers who behaved hateful and the drivers were paying them. On a mandatory basis we all had to have a role where we were sealed in migration with permission to be in Mexico for 180 days. We arrived at Ciudad Acuña at about 6 in the afternoon, they left us in a house that had a large patio, and there they all agreed to order food while we were waiting there. The one who went to buy the food arrived at about 10 o'clock in the evening with pizza and other food there, so everyone ate and we waited for instructions. At 2 in the morning they woke us all up because it was time to cross to the United States. Everything looked like a movie, we went jogging and we got to a mountain, we had to cross 3 barbed fences, and it was a shame with the children, the older people, struggling with those wires to be able to cross, but among all of us we helped. Then we approached the river and that river reached me through my chest, I measure 1.78. the current was tight, but we all managed to cross. Then when we crossed we had to climb a steep one and there was mud and people were slipping but we still crossed it. After crossing we had to change our clothes for dry clothes, because if it was wet they wouldn't let you through. Then the patrol arrived and they gave us good morning and then they asked us why we passed so early, and they recommended that it was best to happen after 6 in the morning which is when the river is low, but they also welcomed us to the United States. We were 49 people, and he called more patrols because in one of us we didn't all get in. Then they took us to the river yield and checked everything, and if you got something wet they'd dumped it at you. In the review they tell how much money you arrive in cash, keep it in an envelope along with your passport and phone. From there you wait for processing, taking pictures and fingerprints. And you have to wait, a lot of people moved her to other places and no idea where they were taking them. And those who process there they open a file and they must wait for a transfer and tell you that you are on the list for the transfer. I spent 8 days in that stay, there are people who only had 3 days there as were people who had a month. The hardest thing is the wait, because you sleep on the floor, on a foami that is on the floor, your pillow was your shoes, at breakfast you ate a burrito, at lunch rice with beans, meat and at dinner you eat another burrito. You don't have a watch, you have to ask the officers about the time, the men were outdoors along with 100 mates or even more, and the women if they were inside but were less in group, they were like 20 or 30 women. Women are the same, they don't see the light of day either, only they lasted less time in the shelter. They only had officers sitting in their offices working in front of them. In my experience I could only bathe twice. They told me soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, new socks and new underwear in the two bathrooms I had. Being there is quite difficult because of the uncertainty but it's worth it, as the lifestyle you live in the United States is not achieved in another country, besides security.” That was the experience of one of the interviewees and from what you can see it is crude, but it is the reality that many Venezuelans and other immigrants of other nationalities come to live while on the journey and in the shelter. However, Venezuelans who arrive in the United States illegally seeking asylum, in addition to risking their lives, are exposed to being deported again to Venezuela, due to the condition in which they arrive, while others must hire lawyers while waiting in detention centers.

You'll see these five this summer!
You'll see these five this summer! the ant, the fly, the fruit fly, the mosquito, the wasp Hello, Summer. - This summer it is warm like these days, so tropical! The #insecten coming with whole armies at us. First we got a horde of ants at the barn door. Hundreds of ants. They plowed so much sand, it looked like molehills. Then the fly. I live in the countryside between the lands, so yes, there are always flies. But since a few days with this heat a lot of fat shit-flies. I always get them out of the house as soon as one comes in, because they poop everything down. Then the fruit fly! Whaaaa, I find that one of the most annoying there is. Do you know that if you eat a sandwich or have a drink, that it floats in front of your face every time and wants to land in your drink or on your sandwich? They're so small, but lightning fast. They seem to poop even though they are small too! And they are present in great numbers at the moment. The fruit has been moved to the fridge and part is outside. Then the mosquito! Oh, I'm all covered by mosquito bumps. Normally, I almost never get stabbed, but this week I spent a night outside and a candle against the mosquitoes on the table, but they thought I was so nice or dirty, that my arms, legs and cheeks had to believe it. That itch, blood irritant. I had vinegar, and I rubbed it on the spots with a cotton ball. Now I certainly don't smell good anymore, but hey it helps and oh yes, you can never scratch, because then there seems to be a speck of dust that makes it more itchy, said Leco at RTL Boulevard. Not that I'm watching that program, but I zapped and Leco just said something about the mosquito! And then the wasp. Brbrbrbrbrbr I'm afraid of that. Say panic! Sit as still as possible and stay calm, but I can't! As soon as I see one, I'm gonna scream and run. You don't want to see or hear that hahahaha. It's to be ashamed of your death. On holidays also whole campsites shouted together. To the inheritance of hubby who then really decides “I'm not part of this.” I've been stabbed three times in my life. The first time on my eyelid, that was really very painful and annoying. The second time it was in my nightgown and I was stabbed on my back and the third time during a walk on my middle finger. You understand, I'm a bit of a drama queen, but without joking, on the one hand they are useful insects and on the other hand a serious problem if you are allergic or if you get such a thing in your mouth. Brbrbr shouldn't think about it. I am always happy when autumn starts again, although sometimes one wants to stay wintering, but by autumn everything is quiet again, well quiet, then Mrs. spider with hubby and kids often emerges again, but I don't find that scary.
