Recap of my week #46November 15, 2015
Christmas lights have been hung throughout the city - which makes it all the more idyllic - and it storms in my country; that's definitely a sign that winter is almost here. It also means a candle-lit house (I even lit candles in the bathroom and bedroom, it's just so cozy) and drink large cups of hot cocoa after a chilly evening walk, and ofcourse feast on comfort foods.
Sadly this week was also a week of sadness, because of the terrorist attacks in Paris. A city I lost my heart to years ago when I visited it twice. My thoughts are with the surviving victims, and the family members and friends of the victims who will not come home anymore. I can only imagine the intense grief that comes with it. The official Paris motto is what comes to mind: Fluctuat Nec Mergitur (Latin for: She is tossed by the waves, but does not sink). Restez Forts, France!
This week was also sad, because it marked the 'deathversary' of my beloved dog Kimbo, whom we had to euthanize a year ago on the 10th of november, because of his suffering and old age. As a child I wanted nothing more than a dog, it was my biggest wish. When I got Kimbo, a beaútiful Jack Russel terrier pup, when I was 11, I was in heaven. Sadly, Kimbo was not like other dogs, but it didn't made me love him less. It was just a very bumpy road with him, but one that learned me a lot, in a good way, about the interaction between humans and animals.
Without further ado:
