The photos above, with their grey and pink shades, are ideal for my mood. Yesterday it started snowing in Antwerp. It was the kind of snow that made me want to put up some Christmas lights. Today the ground is beautifully white but it's very cold outside. It's the perfect day to stay indoors with a cup of home-made hot chocolate and biscotti and reading under a blanket or watching DVDs. Well, I'm forced to stay indoors anyway, as our little boy is sick in bed with fever and stomach flu. He's sleeping so I'm sitting here reading Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. I'm going to watch a BBC series with Judi Dench called Cranford, which I borrowed at the library. It takes place in England in the 1840s, with the Industrial Revolution in full swing. Have you seen it?
It's time to get more hot chocolate, grab another biscotti and take a look at Cranford. Enjoy your day!
home-made vanilla sugar and hot chocolate with home-made vanilla sugar. Well, one can hardly call vanilla sugar a recipe but someone asked me in an email how I make it so I decided to post my version in a separate post. The hot chocolate is very easy to make.
