#Bathwater Ten Things of Thankful

A lot of things to be thankful

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all fine. We are in the middle of a great renovation so our house is a total mess at the moment. After 20 years, when everything in the kitchen seem to be falling apart, we’ve decided to have a new one. It’s when we cannot open and close the door of refrigerator without fear that it will fall on us, or that the exhaust vent produce this alarming noise and not sucking the air out and the work surface has burnt places and scratches. Time for a new one!

That’s the first thank you – thank you for the 20 years’ service of the old kitchen. We’ve spent a lot of times cooking, preparing, listening to radio, talking, arguing, baking, etc. When HRH the son was small, he loved helping me bake some brownies.

Talking of HRH the son, and his beautiful K, they celebrated their second wedding anniversary yesterday – congratulations and best wishes! They will be here to visit us next month so we are looking forward to seeing them again.

Thank you for giving us nice spring weather, our flowers are blooming and the tortoises are happy eating their lettuce and dandelions.

Because we still don’t have a new kitchen, we have been cooking with just one burner camping cooker and an electric kettle so we’ve been testing our creativity as well as our patience to produce some meals. Thanks for testing us.

Sometimes, we go out for a meal, too and here are some of the food we’ve had.

Thank you for the holidays, glad we’ve got two weeks’ off because of Pentecost and spring break, we have time to sort out the mess, or to be in this mess while things are being done in the kitchen.

Thanks for the cycling trips we have been doing.

Have a lovely week everyone!

The moon, apple blossom and our garden

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all fine. I don’t know when I took these photos of the moon one evening, but I’d like to share them with you.

Lovely weekend in Dusseldorf

Hello everyone! Just got back from my long weekend trip in Dusseldorf. I visited my college friend E and also met my cousin M. Anyway, here are some street scenes in Dusseldorf.

We met some friends and had our ladies’ evening

We went to Croatian and Japanese restaurants

Not to mention the cakes and coffees in the afternoon, as well as our shopping spree

Another night-out with friends

Last but not the least, our “pamper ourselves” Sunday (with Filipino food, manicure, pedicure, chit-chats)

Have a great week everyone!
