Today’s my birthday.
And I’m not just saying this to get birthday-wishes, but because I saw this on Google this morning:
And I though, “Hey, what a coincidence. What would be the meaning of these cakes? A famous birthday?”
And then I scrolled over the image and saw this:
And yeah, that does creep me out a little.
Yes, I admit, it’s mostly very convenient that Google remembers all sorts of things, like passwords and usernames and search terms. But a part of me does feel uncomfortable about all this.
But hey, I won’t let it spoil my day and isn’t that exactly what they want?

The lion’s share of my vacation has already passed by. But a glorious vacation it was!
My goddaughter’s sleepover and planned visit to an amusement park was a rounding success. Definitely worth repeating!
Then followed the travelling portion of my vacation.
My parents were staying with the caravan in Saint Rémy de Provence for a couple of weeks. Since I had no other plans this summer, I decided to visit them for a week.
My arrival was a little depressing, since it started raining the moment I set foot on French soil and didn’t relent for the rest of the day. Luckily it was only that day!
My plan for this trip was that I didn’t have a plan. I just wanted to be away for a while. No obligations, no things I absolutely wanted to see or do. Just at ease, relaxing. And relaxing it was! I rested (and slept) a lot, read a fair share and did a teensy bit of crocheting and knitting. It just was too hot for that.
But happily I also visited quite a lot! The Provence is such a beautiful region.
A region of glorious views
And picturesque, sometimes dilapidated buildings and cosy alleys.
A region with castles and villages high in the rocks.
And folkloric celebrations.
A region with Roman sites.
A pinch of Van Gogh.
And occasionally a beautiful butterfly.
But unfortunately, all good things come to an end. I still have vacation this week, but then it’s back to work. Sigh. I’m still enjoying the afterglow though!
