A tinge of Halloween

There are no real Halloween festivities here (which I actually really don't miss at all as it was never a tradition when I was growing up in Switzerland) but after seeing this pumpkin ages ago, I just had to make one too.
And can you see what's in the cup in the fifth photo? Candy corn! The ultimate Halloween candy, which arrived all the way from Arizona yesterday. I'm so excited! Thank you so, so, so much Anne - it really made my day!

10 things about me today

1. I like grape-flavoured stuff (and this drink in particular).
2. I'm sad Joanna left Maastricht...

3. I'm very excited to show you what we received from the States (but you'll have to wait until tomorrow).
4. I've just spent two very fun team-event days with my colleagues - I'm so lucky to be part of such a wonderful group!
5. On my list of things to do before I die, I can now cross off "playing in an indoor snowfield".
6. And also "participating in a sumo wrestle" (or actually in this case a fat snowman wrestle).
7. I can't wait to watch the finale of Project Runway Season 8. I am very disappointed with the outcome of the finale.
8. I'm very happy we can sleep one extra hour tomorrow morning thanks to daylight saving.
9. I really enjoy this album.
10. I'm really sad Joanna left Maastricht...

Street names

Wave St. Monterrey, CA
Chestnut St. San Francisco, CA

We've been collecting street names over the years. Ones that are funny. Or cute. Ones that we like.

A lot of them are still on our old computer though - I'll get them and show you more soon!

Sunday walk

Wore my new gumboots and found four puddles to jump in!

Sunday, 24 October 2010


I just couldn't resist a pair of these colourful gumboots for autumn... lucky there weren't' that many choices in my size anymore, otherwise I think I would never have managed to settle for one single pair - they are all so delicious! (I went for celadon).

Wow, how amazing is this list of colour names!?

Photos from here.

Bright and blurry

Got an eye check-up last night, with pupil-dilating eye drops... the whole world kind of looked like this for a few hours afterward. :-)

I bought the dress on the weekend; I couldn't resist its adorable little polka dots!

70's ads

We finally got to see the current exhibition at our local library - it was great! On top of dozens of posters from the 70's, they also had TV ads from the same period, which were pretty hilarious.

Zeeland: evening light in Zierikzee

We finished our beautiful day in Zeeland with a stroll through the picturesque town of Zierikzee. The evening light made everything just perfect.

Zeeland: along the coast

More sun along the cost, by the North See, and on the Oosterscheldekering.

Zeeland: Middelburg and Veere

You can usually tell how beautiful I find a place by the amount of photos on my camera at the end of the day... Zeeland last Sunday was no exception to the rule; I could not keep myself from taking photos all the time. Everything was resplendent in the warm autumn light and we didn't see a speck of cloud the whole day - what a treat!

The photos hereunder are of Middelburg (Zeeland's capital), where we climbed the Lange Jan tower, and of Veere, an absolutely delightful little town by the water.

More photos of the rest of the day to come later on!
