– Book: “Un Sentiment pour fort que la peur” from Marc Levy


– Black Board: Spider!!! I know, it’s not Halloween anymore, but this is a drawing of a spider I met Saturday morning while walking to meet my clients for a family session. The thing was huge, black and slowing going down in front of me. I saw it and froze as I am terrified of spiders!! And yes I turned around and took a longer path to not have to walk by this monster, Of course neither my hubby nor my kids believed me when I told them that it was about the size of my hand…. so I looked it up… and that lady was a Nephila Pilipes, and is known to be about 20cm in size!!! (and I don’t need that big to be scared…). SO now I walk slowly if time I reach some slightly covered area, and scanned carefully all around….


– Advent calendars: we started our chocolate filled advent calendars on December 1st
