Back to routines



We get up early in the mornings and get ready for school and work. I pack school bags, sign papers, wrap books, make lunch boxes... Clean the house, do some laundry, harvest our garden little by little.

A rainbow of carrots awakens interest at snack time. We do a blind test to prove they all taste the same. All kids  says "Yellow!" when it is red, "Purple!" when it is orange and etc... They say we eat with our eyes... So true... It feels weird to eat a purple carrot... I expect it to taste like a red beet. :D

I take cat naps and photograph Tilda yarn to use for a external online shop eventually. It is where my focus lie right now. I do some make over projects for my oldest daughter and mini pancakes for lunch.

I kill flies. They are everywhere. Up my nose, in my ears, at my food, on my legs, on my computer screen, in my coffee... I truly dislike flies to say it nicely.

I fasten off the last ends on my shawl. I'll show you soon. It is amazing and I have already started on a new one in a new color theme. Pattern will still be a while. Be patient with me. It is a lot to write and I am writing it as I go with Shawl No 2. A few things needed to be tweaked...

Now I will make myself a coffee and sit outside with a new issue of Crochet Today. Happy afternoon dear you.

  8. So many beautiful pictures this week!

    I know what you mean about the flies. It's terrible. This year they aren't too terrible luckily.

    An old wives' tale type remedy to get rid of flies is to get a ziplock baggie, fill it with an inch or so of water and put a couple pennies in it then hang it up where you're having trouble with flies (like a doorway). It supposedly messes with their vision and they think it's a predator or something. I've seen a lot of people do it. Some people swear by it, others don't think it helps.

  11. I love your blog-site, fun, informative and lots of lovely photos.
    The comment about the flies made me laugh - I live in the countryside in Brittany, France and we have the same problem at this time of year.
    Hope you keep blogging for a long time to come, thank you for cheering me up :-)
