Stayed home a lot this weekend because the weather was very bad: lots of rain and lots and lots of wind. Saturday afternoon I baked a chocolate-hazelnut cake, new recipe and I used half of the ingredients, otherwise it would be too big. It was a bit dry and I think I used not enough of some ingredients.
Sunday around noon it was supposed to stay dry for a while although the wind was like a storm at that point. We decided to go to the forest for a short walk with Bella. After 30 minutes we thought we were where we left the car but we were wrong: we were lost. After another 30 minutes we found the car. It’s not a huge forest so we would have found the car eventually but this hardly ever happens to us. At least Bella had a great time because she could run around for an hour instead of 30 minutes.
You can see the forest is very wet:
Book I’m reading
The Mephisto Club
I finally finished David Baldacci’s True Blue. First book I’ve read of him. Not sure if I will read another one of his books since it took me so long to finish it.
TV shows I watched last week
The Big Bang Theory, Glee, New Girl, Modern Family, Raising Hope, The Voice of Holland, Private Practice, Necessary Roughness, The Mentalist.
After a couple of months on Friday finally the final of The Voice of Holland. I don’t watch talent shows but made an exception for this one because the first season was a huge success here. I liked watching it but am also glad it’s over. I always recorded it (except for the final which I watched live) and watched it on Saturday afternoon. The winner wasn’t my choice although she was very good. The one I wanted to win won 2nd place.
R. had to work Saturday at a factory where they make all kinds of bread things for the oven. He brought home a kind of calzone that was filled with ham and cheese which we had for dinner.
Chicken masala soup (bought it) with red onion foccaccia (brought R. home too on Saturday).
Highlights of the week
Bella got a haircut which makes her very cute, great workout week, forest walk with Bella.
