Lucky Lentils & a Dip




Traditionally you eat lentils at the beginning of the year, but in the first week of January it just didn't happen at Pale Rose. It is supposed to bring luck. Mom did mention a few times she would LOVE to eat our family's favorite Lentil Stew this month... So I made it for her this week :)

Lending a Creative Hand


Besides the washing machine making a lot of noise, it's all a bit quiet at the cottage. Dad is organizing a bunch of papers & Mom's trying to sleep as she still has some pains. Charlotte is keeping her company on the bed, be it under the covers. So with all of us fairly silent and dinner almost ready on the stove, I have a minute to chat with you...

Winter Pleasures


Winter makes me wonder about all those little pleasures you can indulge in at home. Like making a steaming cup of tea, reading your favorite book from childhood (Little Women) yet again.

After that me and mom stepped into the kitchen, to start cooking...

Shopping, Smoking & a Suprise




Mom and I had sorted out our wardrobes & realized that most no longer fitted us. There is but one solution to that she mumbled, we have to go shopping... This sentence might not be uttered by most ladies, it was by both of us this week.

Three Cheers at Epiphany



January the Sixth today & as always we celebrate Three Kings Day here at the cottage where my Dad is King this year. He got the hidden bean, but for some reason refused to pose with his crown for a snapshot on my blog. Just kidding, we didn't make a crown anymore as all of us are grown. The tradition of the bread remains & it's one we all cherish...
