In the country part 2

While we were in Friesland we went hiking through the Woods. Really beautiful nature and different types of landscape and weather.  While we were hiking a little ice storm passed and I tried to seek shelter under a tree and in my coat. But minutes later the sun was shining. Which makes a beautiful sky.  When we got to the house we settled in front of the fireplace with bubbles and roasted some marshmallows. Yummm.

In the country

Last weekend we went to see some friends at their house in Friesland.
It was lovely to see them again and catch up. The house has all the ingredients for a perfect weekend: peace and quiet, a forest nearby, a woodstove for marshmellows (more in the next post). Time flew by. Thanks for a great weekend and: next stop France.

Driving Miss Annette

In reality I don’t have my drivers licence. The car and I tried but we decided we would be better off apart. This has its advantages like I never have to be the Bob*. ;-) We thougt it would be fun to do a post about me in a car as if I would have my licence. Although it felt great sitting in the drivers seat it feels even better if someone is driving Miss Annette.

From another life

Looking for shoes to post I stumbled upon this little setting from january 2010. Way back when there was a cosy carpet and a fabulous red Ikea chair (no longer in production) in our living room. And Annettes shoes left behind because she took them off and rose out of the chair to do something else, maybe pat the cat or start dinner, I don’t remember.

To run an errand

Lately the weather has been very kind to us. Not to put on a heavy winter coat going outside but just running a little errand, for example getting a small bottle of sparkling wine, without a coat has been very nice. Can’t wait for actual spring and summer!

Spring is in the air

While I am still waiting for the first  snow to fall this winter the sun begins to find its way more to us than the snow. The bright side is that when I go to work it doesn’t feel like it’s the middle of the night anymore, plus I get to wear my new favorite slip-ons.

When I was little, my mom told me, when I got new shoes I would love them so much I went to sleep wearing them. I don’t do that anymore.
Or do I.
