Sun rays

this was yesterday morning when we drove away from the hotel. in reality it was prettier, of course....
we stayed 2 nights, so last night we could use the gym and pool again. we even had a personal trainer in the gym, so funny! he made us do some exercises...  and after that, we had a very fancy dinner in a very fancy restaurant.... (it starts with an M and ends with an s....)

Winter sun

since yesterday we finally have a few days off! we drove from groningen to amsterdam with 2 weeks worth of laundry.... ugh (only in amsterdam we have a washing machine)..... as i refuse to use a dryer, i managed only 1 load yesterday evening, as this morning we left again! first to tims grandmother, who turned 99 today!! after that, we drove on to a fancy hotel in the netherlands (we got some discount), we had a walk this afternoon, and then i took the above picture. the sun was shining like crazy!!!  the hotel has quite a nice gym and a pool, so... we used both and then had a nice dinner in a restaurant..... and now its time for the leftover homebaked brownies..... hmmmm.....
tomorrow we both took off from work. jippiejee!

Such landscapes....

no, this is not something you will find in the netherlands..... this was in december 2012 already, when we drove from..... texas to caliornia, or was it nevada. uuugghh. i dont remember exactly! also not which state this is. but i remember this very well. we had arrived after dark, found a cheap motel, and in the morning the landscape turned out to be amazing... as you can see above.... :)
perhaps this year we can once again make a road trip... i certainly would like that!!
