Aachen Market and a Snow Day...

I went to Aachen Germany yesterday for  shopping at the Christmas Market with the school German club trip.  The market is in the shadow of the the Aachen Cathedral, which is the oldest cathedral in Northern Europe.  It was consecrated in 805.  We did not tour it, we went for shopping.  Aachen is only about 2 hours away, so definitely a day trip.

I bought a couple of Christmas items; the small boot shaped cup contained an Irish Coffee that was a little coffee and a lot of Irish.  And there was a Starbucks...a new mug for me.

Today, a snow day for Anna...and I will be doing some sewing.

It snowed in Belgium

I woke up this morning and there was a beautiful snow fall...really nice fluffy flakes.  I don't know how long it will stick around, but it is pretty this morning.  CashUs acted like he had never seen snow, this is the dog who would run/jump into snow piles in MN.

Hubby and I ventured out and went to the Farmer's Market; they have the best roast chickens ever and that is what I had planned for Sunday dinner/Monday leftovers. We made it no trouble and chicken for dinner it is.
