No public fixing, blowing or drinking. Repeat warning.

Encountered this sign yesterday walking from the station square to the relatively newly built Willem Wilmink square in Enschede. No public drug use allowed. I don’t think this sign is in the official database of traffic signs. Especially the ‘herhaling’ sign, meaning the sign is a repeated statement, made me laugh.

Did something out of my ordinary yesterday afternoon, I went to the movie theatre, on my own. To see Dune. The Dune series I’ve read many times, and I was curious to see how they made it into a movie. It’s following the book pretty closely, if not too closely, making it struggle to keep forwards momentum I feel. I wonder what someone who hasn’t read Dune thinks of the movie’s story, does it at all make sense? It’s long, and covers just a portion of the book ([UPDATE 20211017 upon rereading I realise it covers almost exactly half the book]). I wonder if they’ll greenlight the second planned part, which is where the action will be.

Returning home I picked up the paperback I have, but seeing the tiny print, on E’s suggestion opted for an e-book version. Will be re-reading the entire series I suspect…

The apple harvest is in! I picked the apples in our apple tree, and pruned the tree while I was at it. About a bucket and a half of apples. Way more than last year which had a very dry spring. Sour in taste though, because of the relative little sunlight they captured this summer. Applie pies lie in our near future I suspect.
