Welcome to the month of November! Today is All Saints' Day, which is a national holiday in Luxembourg. The children have an autumn break this week, which allows us to take it easy. We are mainly reading, watching DVDs and putting our art supplies to good use. This day always reminds me of the time we lived in Antwerp because close to our home was a cemetery that looked more beautiful at this time of the year. People would bring flowers to the graves and there were people selling flowers by the entrances.
I enjoy living in Luxembourg but today I'm going to allow myself to miss Antwerp just a little.
Today I'm also making my apple cake and hot chocolate, both served with whipped cream - yummy! I have promised my son to watch with him LOTR: The Return of the King so I believe today will be a good day. What are you guys up to? Do you have a day off from work?
