Corner view ..Tradition "oliebol"

This evening I did a very traditional dutch thing..I made "oliebollen" in englisch "dutch donut". Its a typical dutch candy from the 18th century that we eat and made on 31 dec. but you can buy the oliebol a couple days before in the shop. Today I saw in the supermarket lots and lots of package of the dutch donut dough and because I have last year big trouble to buy it(I was to late in the shops everthing was saled already)I bought 3 package and everthing I need for that..

And this evening ..(yes I know I'm a little bit early )I baked together with my girlfriend and neighbour next door 1 package of oliebollen!!

It was nice to talk to laugh to bake and to eat. She was going home with a couple oliebollen for her friend and there are just a couple left for my F. when he's coming home this evening.

I'm so thankful for this time of the year and the possibility to celebrate this time.
Thank you dear God for all the beauty that is left from Eden and for all the beauty that is to come.

Wishing you a time that is plentiful of goodnes.

Corner View: Taking a different perspective

Reading this theme I knew exactly what I want to show you.
When I was a little child I lay down on the floor or on my bed and stared to the ceiling.I discoverd that it will be wonderful when you can turn around you're world. So since then (in my childhood) when I lay down I always turned my view of the world in upside down. And fantasize how it is to live in that upside down world.
Now I'm growed up and I have enough on this world so I don't do it anymore but sometimes really sometimes I take a little look up side down..but thank God now I like this world more.
But for this time again a little look from the world around me upside down.
I think it will be difficult walking on our new floor..don't you think?

But it looks like a gozy world...dont you think. I have to say that I inspire myself right now ..I'm gonna do something with it in my work!

Hope you're world around you is also good!

Corner view: Holiday pictures

I think this was my shortest holiday ever. Anna and I stay for 2 nights ,one day in Stockholm. We had a incredible time.
End of this week I'm gonna book a new Stockholm adventure. This time with my F. because we've had no vacation this year(just hard work)
And on the 30 this month we've been married ten years so we gonna celebrate that in december in Stockholm for 3 nights and 2 days...yeah!!

I'm dreaming of a white Stockholm..
Any tips?
