December Daily 2016
Yes this year, I was able to master a bokeh effect that I couldn’t last year. I received a new lens for my birthday in February with a focal of 1.8
With the right tool, It was really easy. This Christmas tree bokeh is closing my album perfectly!
New year Eve’s, I’m not a big fan of all the fireworks happening in the street, ( too dangerous and noisy ), so the years when we are together at home for new year Eve’s, we like to watch a good movie with good food & champagne. We watched ‘The secret life of pets’ and my boyfriends thought that I was like Gidget. 🙂
I’ve been binge watching the Netflix show, the OA. What a waste of my time! When did torture become entertaining? And there is not even a warning message like ‘viewer discretion advised… ‘ But the suspense is so high that I had to watch it until the end to know what happened. I thought that the end was ridiculous. I will definitely NOT watch season 2!
In the evening it’s time for some festive aperitif delight, smoke salmon & eel.
Taking time to scrapbook and watching the season 1 of Travelers on Netflix.
A lot of hydration…. Drinking the and I’m ready to watch the new season of Gilmore Girls! Why is there only 4 episodes? In the good old days, a season was composed of like 26 episodes of 56 / 59 minutes !
Anyway the new season is great and I can’t wait to see the next one!
Dinner & Party time at our friend Iris. Great Cocktails, dinner, ( the Marquise is a hit ) and great dancing.
‘Beste tweede kerstdag ever !’ (best 2nd day of Christmas ever!)
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.
