Life in a 4x4
Life has been hectic! Lots of guests, the first term bulletins were due at school, appointments, and traveling. On Monday I went to London for 2 nights to show Ryan's Aunts my favorite city. Yes, I have decided - London is #1. This week marked my seventh time to the city and it never ceases to amaze me. I love everything about it, the sights, people, fashion, pubs, neighborhoods, the tube, shopping, I could go on and on! Did I mention that we saw the Queen? Yes, the Queen of England! While we were waiting for the changing of the guard she drove up to Buckingham Palace with a few police escorts and the crowd went wild. Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo but she looked as elegant as ever.
Today I baked an Apple Crisp deliciousness because we had a lot of apples and it's Ryan's favorite. I also picked up those hydrangeas TWO weeks ago at the local market and they are still alive and kickin'. Today is Halloween and the Belgians really don't celebrate at all. I can't wait to be back in the States to celebrate Hallmark holidays. But one of the local shops had a beautiful window display with everything made of chocolate. I love the skulls :)
