Make You Smile


Our girls Charlotte and ChloĆ« are mischievious and inventive. Cats are just like people in many ways & always make me smile. Sometimes I get the impression that the cats themself laugh out loud. Like Charlotte in this picture above...

Cooking up a Storm


I love our kitchen, it's not pretty or fitting of our cottage in style. It's not luxurious or high tech in any way. It's small, it has no direct sunlight and there is very little room to make it cozy. Therefor I shall not add an overall picture, but like I said I love our kitchen. We spend so much quality time in there together as a family....

Saturday Sister Time


My sister came over for a visit last Saturday. After she got back from her vacation I had seen her briefly when she came for a cup of tea on the way. I had a quick show of her holiday snaps, but a few hours in the evening was not enough time for us to catch up. I was hoping to reconnect and so I asked her to come again soon. She did so on Saturday...

Lost in a Marathon



Before today I was not familiar with marathons. Like most people, I knew what a marathon was. But in "all my years" on this earth I had not partaken in one. That was about to change! My friend S. called me on the phone to make sure we both knew the time of our meeting. When the clock informed me it was a quarter to 10, I grabbed my stuff and closed the front door...

A Hundred (and 21)


I'm not a numbers girl, math isn't my thing. I like language, I like words. Creating an image or a story with letters is fun. Letters that when placed together in such a way, combine & become something more is even better. When I was younger I often dreamed of becoming a writer or a poet. I've written many diaries and letters, poems, comments on blogs. Also loads of things on my own blog. In fact today I am writing to you again and it's a special moment. Well, it is for me anyway: this is post nr. 100 ...

Company with Blueberries


 
I was up early today in anticipation of things to come. I made myself a cup of tea, had some breakfast. I picked out an outfit, got ready and applied a little make-up. Now I just had to wait for 10 am...

Sunflowers, Sophie & Bees



Sunflower fans unite at our cottage. Did I ever tell you that earlier this year, my mom planted some sunflower seeds? I think I did. With all the warm and sunny weather we have been blessed with, they grew and bigger and bigger and then they flowered...

Banana soup, Kisses & Wishes


Chocolate, is there anything more delicious? I say there is and that's a cute chocolate tin. Look what I got from mom & dad. A fabulous Hershey tin that will look great in my room, besides my bed or reading chair. With a few biscuits in it or so. "Biscuits?" I hear you say...

Snapshots of a Sleepover


Haven't told you much about my sleepover beforehand at all, have I?! Must confess I did that on purpose. Yes I spilled all about the Brambly cake I made. Not so much where and with whom I was invited. There was no BIG secret & it is unlikely that you will be surprised to hear all. I just wanted to keep it to myself, for a little longer. Today I'll share it all with you & add a bunch of snapshots as well...
