All together

She is back, my little Emmy Bo. Jay is back, my dear husband. I'm complete. For a while. We made her favorite dish for dinner, stuffed vegetables. We played Yatzy and she won with the highest score ever and I had the lowest score ever. I guess it was meant to be. I picked the last few tulips (my gorgeous tulips!!! I LOVE THEM!) and brought them inside. Weeded a little bit when the sun came out, if so only for a while.

The rain is back and today looks like yet another grey, grey, grey and wet, wet, wet day over here in Switzerland. There is no laundry on the clothes line. No jumping kids on the trampoline. I keep on cuddling up under crochet blankets reading, watching TV and crocheting... With breaks of doing house chores and playing game after game after game with Emmy Bo.

Today we will have visitors. Good friends are coming over for Swedish Pancakes and BLT's. If we are lucky the rain might stop for a bit and we can go for a walk in the mountains. At least that was the initial idea. If not, we'll play cards and Monopoly and just hang out inside. Either way we will have a great time as they are such great people. I better get started... drink my already cold tea, get dressed, tidy up my crazy morning head and start that pancake batter...

Thank you so much for your sweet and comforting thought on my previous post. It is so good to know I'm not alone in this phase of motherhood transition. Things are changing for sure, but not over night. I still have many many years left to enjoy and be annoyed (twink...) by these kids around me. Thank my lucky star for that. What would be without them?

- Crochet blanket is my Scrappy Happy V-stith Blanket pattern available in my Etsy and Ravelry.
- Swedish Pancake recipe can be found here.
- The tulips are called Peony flowering tulips or Double layered tulips but I'm afraid I don't know the name of mine.
