Schrijfuitdaging April: Date met Mezelf


Als voorbereiding heb ik een grote taart op de tuintafel gezet.
De broek waar de elastiek terug ingenaaid moet worden ligt in de kelder op de naaitafel.
Voor noodscenarios ligt de bankpas op de kast. Mijn man past op de kinderen.
Ik heb een date met mezelf.
Een schuimbad staat op me te wachten, een pikzwarte kop koffie op de rand en een martiniglas gevuld met dropslierten en aardbeien in het zeepbakje.
Om de juiste sfeer te creëren heb ik met knalrode lipstick een gigantisch hart op de tegels van de badkamermuur getekend.
Mijn gsm zit in het contact op de stoel naast het bad, ik ben nog net intelligent genoeg om deze niet mee het water in te nemen tijdens het opladen.
Voor het badkamerraam heb ik een zwarte handdoek met doodshoofd gehangen, kwestie van die rare kwast met zijn telescoop van hierover
niet te veel plezier te gunnen, en misschien zelfs een heel klein beetje te shockeren.
Ik zet de playlist aan, de hele cd Showbiz van Muse mag genadeloos hard door de badkamer galmen, en stap het hete schuimbad in.
Langzaam laat ik me in het water zakken, rug, schouders, nek, tot ik het water over mijn wimpers voel glijden, de speciaal voor de gelegenheid - en veel te rijkelijk - aangebrachte mascara loopt genadeloos uit terwijl ik m'n hoofd terug boven het water breng.
Genietend van de muziek, koffie en snoep, en vooral van de aanwezigheid van enkel en alleen mezelf voel ik mijn ingebeelde roze straightjacket en mijn eenhoornhoedje van me af vallen.
Even weg van de glitterwereld in het coronaquarantainetijdperk. Heel even.





 
It goes on, year after year out STALBURN
The Dutch government does not do enough to prevent barn fires, the Research Council for Safety (OVV) concludes Wednesday. According to the OVV, the government considers that 130,000 chickens or 7,000 pigs are deemed to be an “acceptable risk”.. Three hundred calves killed in a large barn fire in Elspeet - Government does too little to prevent barn fires - More than forty thousand chickens died in stable fire in Frisian village of Niawier - In that decision, many livestock farmers have no money to take extra measures and that they “face many more issues”.. 4,600 pigs are perish at stable fire in Nederweert - 100,000 chickens killed in a big fire in Groningen barns - Fireproof roof insulation in the barn? That's too expensive. - Animals also have rights - In mega-stalls, one million animals have been burned or suffocated in recent years. - Stable fires 2020 - Stable fires in the Netherlands: overview 2019 - Animal Welfare - Biodiversity - Farmerland - Blog collection -
Telescope crafting of kitchen roll and toilet rolls
When I saw the beautiful picture book Armstrong, I only wanted one thing: tinkering a telescope! And of course one that you can really look through, so you can look at the moon, just like the mouse from the book. With a kitchen roll, 5 empty toilet rolls and gold corrugated cardboard, you make a stargazer as you see here. You want to know how to craft him? Look below, get started and watch the moon with your own star-viewer! Armstrong Torben Kuhlman / The Four Windlines A small step for a mouse...Themes: space travel, rocket, persevering America, 1954, a small mouse discovered through its telescope that the moon is a sphere of stone, not a hole cheese as he and the other mice have long thought. When he hears that a mouse has ever flown, he decides: “I will be the first mouse on the moon!” An exciting story with a short history of space travel in the back. SPECIMEN Supplies:1 Kitchen roll, 5 toilet rolls, 1 sheet of gold corrugated cardboard, 1 styrofoam ball, 3 long satestokjes, 4 wooden beads, piece of aluminum foil, paint lead color (e.g. Creall Top Deco acrylic paint), glue (e.g. Creall Hobby glue), 4 pins, scissors, pieces of painting tape. Handy are 2 clothespins and a puncture pen. Method: Slide 2 toilet rolls over the kitchen roll and glue Make 2 rolls a piece narrower by cutting a piece away and then sticking it again with painting tape. Painting tape is easy to paint over, ordinary adhesive tape does not Cut 1 roll and cut the corners around. This will be the holder of the tripod Paint all parts, so the long viewer, the 2 smaller rolls, the holder and the 4 wooden beads Cut strips from the gold-colored corrugated cardboard and glue them to the viewer. With clothespins you squeeze it together so that the glue can dry well without having to hold it for a long time. Glue the bead in the middle of the small roll and glue it on top of the long sleeve For the tripod: Cut out a piece of the styrofoam a little hollow so that the roundness of the holder fits well Wrap aluminum foil around the ball Prick the ball to the holder with 4 pins. Prick the holes with a puncture pen Now prick the 3 legs into the ball so that the tripod stands firmly Glue the 3 beads at the bottom of the legs If you look closely through your telescope, you might see the moon mouse, its space capsule or a flag on the moon. Want to know more about the first mouse or first human on the moon? Take a quick look at the book and experience an astronomical adventure! The reading corner has made a reading video with this book!
