Christmas tree and decorations are now packed away in boxes and put in the attic until next time... The pillow covers are washed and carefully folded away in my linen cupboard. Slowly I am lightening up my living room area with pastels and white, spring flowers and garlands... New pillows are in the making to cheer me up with happy colors.
The Swiss Alps are beautiful. Being the first one on the slope a beautiful morning was a completely new experience for me this year. I think I am getting hooked on skiing the slopes. I'm watching the mountain silhouettes late at night. Taking snowy walks and enjoying the Swiss German architecture, so stunning and rustic (I love it!) as much as I can as it is so terrible grey and gloomy in our home village down by the Geneva Lake... We have been up to Gstaad a couple of times already to enjoy the fresh air and outdoor life. Next weekend I take my Swedish girlfriends there for a girly weekend. I got 2 bottles of bubbly chilled and waiting for us in the fridge... :D
I am hooking a row or two on my blanket every night... Picking colors as I go with no thought... No scheme... No expectations... Love this new blanket project.
I am starting new projects every day or so... Like normal... I am the girl who loves to start but find it incredibly hard to finish... Easily distracted, just like my 9 year old Luca Bo in school... Oh. I've never thought of it like that before. How enlightening. Suddenly I understand him!
We bake cup cakes but they never seem to make it to the table... The kids love this affair, icing and sprinkles... Munching and filling up on these sugary treats.
Charlie the cat is cuddling up on top of pillows, computer keyboards, kitchen chairs, my crochet basket, my chair, on top of my books, on my cutting mat and of course on Emmy Bo's pillow. He is a pain in the neck this cat and we totally love him for it.
