We started the day we a skype video call with my family during breakfast to open our presents together. We then bake the marquise because it needs 24 hours freezing time. We still have some time to go outside in the park, my boyfriend is running, I cycle 🙂
We are invited for the 2nd Christmas day by a friend of us ( the Dutch celebrate the first Christmas day and the second Christmas day). We are in charge of the dessert and have decided to bake a ‘Marquise au chocolat’, ( chocolate Marquise), That my mother gave me the recipe. I need to go shopping for the ingredients but I can’t find some ‘crème Anglaise’ called here English custard, but they don’t sell it already made like you find it in France. After two shops and three differents supermarkets, I have enough! We are
For dinner, we are having a nice already made meal I bought in one of the supermarkets.
I’m still on my mood to decorate the home, so I’m going outside to buy some fresh ‘flowers’for a bouquet composition. I got some branch with some red berries on it, some other reddish leaves branches and some eucalyptus branches that are smelling so good in the living room.
Today, I’m taking care of the house, tidying up, cleaning, setting some ‘Kerstkrantjes’ on a cake tray.
I’m taking pictures and enjoy the holidays to make this album.
I’m finally on Holidays! YAY ! (And I still have 2 seasons of Gilmore Girls to watch plus the new one! ) What could be better than that?
I also found a Christmas star top that I like, for the tree, The perfect finishing touch.
On Sunday, I’m decorating the tree, I bring it from the garden and set it in my lightening pot in the living room. I’m decorating with a Michael Jackson playlist in the background. In the evening, We ordered some burgers for dinner, it’s what I call a good day! 🙂
On Friday, my aunt comes to visit and we’re having lunch at Bean & bagels. Then back home, she insisted of sweeping the garden titles covered with leaves. After she left, I still have time to send a newsletter. I’m getting better at this, meaning I’m much faster. ( But I still have a bit fear when I need to press the big red button to send the newsletter, If you know MailChimp, you know what I’m talking about).In the evening, My boyfriend brings a colleague from work, ‘for a beer. ( which is the perfect opportunity to use a card from the Kelly Purkey Mini December’s kit.
On Wednesday 14, I work in the studio, putting the new rock brooches online in my shop.
On Thursday 15, After my Physio appointment, I went for a little shopping trip in town. The trailer of Despicable Me 3 is released that day and I must have watched it like 15 times. Michael is in my ears now… ‘Who’s bad? tun, tun, tun, tun, tun…
If you live on Mars, and you haven’t seen it, here is the trailer link.
I pass by the shop Rare Bird to see if they need a refill of my jewelry and then finally go pick up my new boxes…. and discovers that I ordered the wrong size! I’m so angry at myself. The day is over and I console myself over it by watching some more Gilmore Girls episode. Tomorrow will be another day
