What a Christmas

Hi there! Here I am....again. Yes I know it has been a while but I have been busy, very very busy.
But today just a short one. Just to let you see how we spend the days during Christmas. It was the best Christmas ever the children say. Just look at the picture that were taken while we were staying at my sister in law....

About rain en longing

This is what the weather looks like today and all the previous days during this two week break. Sometimes the sun tries to break through the thick cloudy blanket but with no succes. How great it would be to sit in the garden enjoying the morning sun while taking a sip of my tea....or to sit down and read in the late afternoon whith a nice glass of sparkling rosato....or to simply enjoy dinner with my family. I long for those long, light, warm summer days to arrive. So in the meantime we pretend it is indeed summer and try new recipes containing summer fruit and veggies and baking bread and cakes. And al those delicious and yummy goods will be eaten while playing board games and listening to some light piano music.....

It's raining again...

But then Autumn has arrived. Yesterday I even thought Winter arrived too...as my car was frozen from the outside ánd the inside.
Don't you just love the colours Autumn gives to us? All those reds and golden yellows...and the smell of nature when walking through the woods. No walk today. It is raining. Again. Instead I'm sitting here. Lurking around. Enjoying a hot steamy cup of chocolate. And trying to find some creative inspiration.
Have a nice rainy autumn day to all.....

Spending the day in Scheveningen.

Most people have heard of The Hague (Den Haag). I'm sure of it. Now....If you visit The Hague, be sure to do that in the morning. In the afternoon you will visit the beach, you will visit Scheveningen. Eat something small in one of many restaurants. And how about a nice walk across the beach? We did this during our summer vacation on a day that was not so warm, but still had a nice temperature.

Visiting carcássonne

We visited Carcassonne. A medieval town in the south of France. The French part of Catalonië to be precise. It was impressive. To see how well kept this little town is.

Every summer we go to France or to Italy or.....well we take a vacation. We pack everything in our big Renault and of we go. This year we visited the coast near Perpignan, which is in France. The smell of fresh bread in the mornings, the flavours of the South of France, the people.....Time went by and before we new it, it was time to go home. All that is left are the pictures, a reminder of our happy family vacation.
