(Title creds go to Mike 😉
Thursday Dec 1st –
Watercolor flowers suddenly seem like the best thing to add to every inspirational quote/verse and though they are pretty and I’m liking doing them a lot, I’m not sure what I’ll be able to turn to for some variety now 😬
I completed a few mini’s that morning too and was loving it 💕🌸🌿💌
Mike had went into town and he returned with Oliebollen for us… 13 to be exact 😏😜
Greasy, heavy, donut like sweets, dipped in icing sugar.
Mike says we will be fat soon 😔
They are just like what I’m used to having under the name of New Years cookies… though I never liked them because of the raisins (Mike got me some raisinless ones).
Supper was leftovers and the rest of the day’s doings were odds and ends of no real interest😋
Friday Dec 2nd –
Our visitors from Germany arrived that morning and Caleb (Canadian), Micah (American) and Mike headed off for a bike ride through the only hills Holland boasts of and Susie (German) and I stayed at the apartment and I taught her the fine art of relaxation 😜
We got to relax and chat and even painted a little while the boys biked up and down hills and got rid of some energy.
I did have to make a French toast casserole for the next morning since the boys were also picking up Mark Hall (British) a good friend of Mikes, and he was spending the weekend so we’d need an easy, filling breakfast for the next morning.
The guy’s returned momentarily to pretty much say hi and bye and then they went out to play squash and Susie and I stayed as we were, warm and comfy in the house, snacking on cheese and crackers, rather mouse like 😏
Once everyone had returned and we all happily gathered into our little space, Turkish food was ordered and enjoyed.
The German bound folks had to leave and the rest of our evening was spent catching up with Mark.
Mom sent me the mini canvas’ painted by our nieces in Canada/US so we can fill our apartment with original, one of a kind abstract art 😉🎨🖼
