Het is erg warm ....

WP_20130802_008 (1400x1186)…but after the spring we’ve had, I can hardly complain.  I had to sympathize with the flowers left out to suffer in front of the bar up the street, though.

I was up with the sun, as usual, did a little early reading, biked to some 9 am appointments.  A leisurely lunch with a friend at the Vrijthof, then back to work on legal issues through the afternoon.  Sunset found me working my favorite risotto recipe with a fresh-made vegetable stock.   It made all the difference in the recipe.

‘takes me three times to get anything right: once to get the feel for it, second to overcompensate, third time perfect.

Outside, the Stone Bridge glows orange in the sunset, the bicycles drift by in the twilight, soothing like watching fish in an aquarium.  I sit in the window, sip a good Belgian beer, and make plans for the weekend. 

The Antwerp city museum, most likely, or down to Spa if my spirit tends towards a ramble…
