  1. Not everyone has the choice how to celebrate it…. sadly enough…. but still one has to make the best of it…. the differences are quit extensive

    But still I hope you had a gorgeous Christmas and will have a splendid 2019

  2. Apple doughnuts and a fruit drink sound just fine to me, J. Your painting is wonderful! Hope you had safe and happy holidays. As for the bridge, I think I’d trust a new one over an old one. I’m afraid of bridges and escalators (and squirrels).

  3. Now I see the comment area. I could not find it. I have entered the season’s end meme. I have been away from the blog post because of reasons mentioned in my recent blog post. I hope you are doing and having a great time. Missed your blog. A belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your loved ones :-).

  4. What a nice and colorful ‘end of the year post’.
    At the end of a very sunny and dry year the last week of 2018 is dark and rainy. I am longing for some winter and a snow walk, but it doesn’t seem to become winter at short notice.
    Wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy 2019.

    1. It can be dark these winter months without snow, since Holland has rain 11 months out of the year! Harder to find good scenes and angles for photography too! Wishing you a great photography year in 2019 and all the best to you and Aafje (I read up on the About section):):)

  5. Thank you for this uplifting post! The more I learn about Dutch traditions, the more I like them. Mmmm, apple donuts and a fruit drink. And two Christmas days!! Have a very Happy New Year.

  6. New is not always better is right!

    I don’t do a lot of self-reflection although I do plan mostly for the worst so I come out alright.

    I’ve never thought of driving over the Grapevine like that, but once I was terrified because there was sleepy driver ahead or behind me weaving around and going slower than me or passing me and driving really fast and weaving across the lanes. That was scary! I thought for sure he would crash into someone or drive over the side of the hill. Thankfully, he didn’t while I was within his sight.

    I’ve driven down it in the winter with snow and hail raining on me and up it when it was sunny and beautiful. Always looking at the truck stop and am so grateful that they must pull off to weigh in and get out of my way!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and the family Jesh, xx ❤🎄🎉✨

    1. Our Christmas at our (2nd) daughter’s was very low key, but had a lot of fun with the grands.
      I kept agreeing with you, while reading your comment.I don’t know the state of mind of those “sleepy” drivers on the Grapevine, but I wish there were more police presence there on a regular basis to hand out warnings and tickets, to make it more of a safe trip over that stretch of freeway.
      That 2019 may be an awesome year for you and your family:):)
