Hello beautiful ladies,
Can you imagine that tomorrow it is July? Half of 2014 is already behind us. Wow, I feel as if I only just packed away the pine cones and faux snow….
But let’s not dwell on that and enjoy the here and now.
This weekend I was in vacation mood. Not that I already have vacation, there are still two deadline-filled weeks of work to go, before I can retreat into my hammock for a few weeks.
But luckily enough I live in a part of the world that makes it so easy to go on a mini vacation for a day.
Yesterday we crossed the border into Belgium, it meant we crossed a language and cultural border too. And the sun shone down on us and I felt like I was a million miles away.
Want to go on a mini vacation with me?
The sun is shining so we need a hat….
I’ll think I’ll give that stripy one a try….
And of course we definitely need a nice big new summer bag too.
Aren’t those cheerful colors just wonderful?! I withstood the temptation, but I am already sorry about that. Maybe we will have to go on a mini vacation next weekend too……
Every day needs some flowers, don’t you think. And there are plenty to choose from.
And who wants to cook while on vacation…..
Let’s grab some local delicacies for tonight’s dinner.
Hmm, these coconut macaroons were so tempting…..
All of these images were taken on the Sunday market in Aubel in Belgium. It is only half an hour away from where I live, but on this sunny Sunday in June it felt like walking a market in the south of France.
Back home I did a bit of this….
Mixing some colors for a craft project I’ll show you soon.
And mixing some ingredients for this:
Banana bread with chocolate and walnuts to serve to a dear uncle of mine who came for a visit.
And then we had to get ready for this:
Team orange had to play a game. Oj, and what a game, the saving goal in the last 8 minutes and the wining goal in the overtime. It was a close call, but we made it through to the next round so my sports garland can stay up a bit longer.
And now it is back to another week of work, battling the deadlines before summer break starts.
How was your weekend? What did you do?
