Getting a late(r) start this morning because it's a national holiday today in Belgium! Which gave me license to keep Chris up with me as late as I could, insomnia is no picnic alone. Although he might not agree again after letting me pick the movies. Tomorrow I'm hoping to embark on a short train trip to a new town in-country since the hubs has today and tomorrow off of work. We're thinking it was designed this way (and is a very good idea) considering last night was Halloween and maybe no one comes in to work, (aware and alertly), the next day anyway? Any Belgians know the truth? I'm too lazy to Google it at the moment.
Hmmm...America? Wanna jump on that one? Sounds like a good idea to me.
Last weekend was one without a trip. We realized we're probably never going to do that again. It's not that we don't like our own little town but that's just it, it's little, it's our own town, and everything closes at 6pm Saturday for the entire weekend (except for the bars, don't worry visitors)...boooooring.
Sunday we walked to Heverlee for their morning market and then wandered home the super long way to walk past the closest castle we have.
Much to Chris's dismay, I take a lot of pictures of him. He's a good sport, usually.
This little chapel is nestled into the hill of KU Leuven's campus and completely walled in by trees. What a beautiful place to be still and know.
On the way back to Leuven we could hear a little shouts and lots of laughing coming from up on a hill. And then I spotted it. One of the coolest kid's treehouses I've seen. How cool!
I'm still not taking the sun for granted. It was such a perfect day for a walk that even with that backpack filled up with bread, eggs, butter, sugar and more, we (okay, Chris) toughed it out and walked slowly home in the sunshine. I'm soaking up every second I can get.
I have a little something special tomorrow for you. It's a concession, if you will (Chris is going to be thrilled, I'm not being facetious). See you tomorrow...
