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!

Love you giver of that green(red)shawl..

Green is colour I will live!

Bizzy head.

Dear Blog Friends,

I have just to much things on my head.

Like these:

Nice Nice Autumn.
Archaeology things.
My job.
My volunteer job.

All my discovers ...It is to much.So thats why its is so quiet here.

But I want to show you just one thing. We (F and I) went to some archaology people with all the things we find during the building proces. That was really interesting...so now I'm totally crazy of it and I can't stop searching.

We found some stuff below the floor from 1400-1500 and 1600.

Except that glass..that is something I bought because that is so special. Its a Roemer from the 17e century..for my work is it very special that I found this. You see this on almost every still lifes from 1500-1700 and now I hold it in my hand. Its time traveling.

Just like the fragments.. I've seen the whole peace of pottery by the archaeologists so now I know what it was..It is magic.

We found so much more...also whole pieces pottery. Next time more.

ps. I worked hard on my website its renewed if you want to take a look:

I'm back!

After 1 month of extreme hard working ...

We have one temporary kitchen on a new place in the house:

And we have a new concrete floor, we have two new basements(we've never had but where I'm always dreamed of) we have a extension of the house and a dining room that we've never had.

So the vacation is over and now we are very tired.Our body's hurt all over and we fell ourselves very old when we have to stand up...but it was it all worth.

Look with me! This is our new dining room..he is not ready but it is already a dream for me..:

Glad that we have rest for a while because the working life is back!!
And glad that I see you again!
