Clara Crafts

Clara not only comes to the extracurricular craft club that I teach, she also has textile/crafts classes at school this year. In their first class they made so-called dreamweavers. She came home totally addicted and over the course of the week she made several ones of all colours and sizes.

Here is a little selection:


My hibernating sock wool has been kissed to life again.
Dream on.

Pink Moment of the Week

My little pink camera broke this week ...


... and got an upgraded replacement.

Signs of September


One beautiful sunflower opened this week in our garden -
even though summer and sun are coming to their warm ends,
bringing in the harvest.


Tomatoes - the typical September fruit,
that is the only thing that really worked this year in Hubby's garden.


Free for all - porcini mushrooms,
I found near a school playground,
that made a nice grounding meal:


And grounding is what I need right now.

Hello September!

We are already a couple of days into September, but I have only flipped Clara's calendar now. We prolonged our summer holiday with a couple of days at the (oh-so-cold-compared-to-Thailand) Baltic Sea. Additional to a very slow internet connection there I have cultivated quite a strong screen fatigue over the summer weeks, with no desire to spend time in front of a computer. But now it says:


Back to school!
 
Clara's school actually only starts on Wednesday and yes, she will be in third grade (this special day was already two years ago). But my yoga courses start tomorrow and with all that comes the settling in into our old routine, that feels unfamiliar right now. So we'll see what kind of fresh fruit this September will bring (apart from apples ...). Probably more blog posts, I promise.

Hello Again!

Psst, we are back from Thailand,
slowly adjusting from tropical to fall weather.


 For some first impressions,
head over to sleepy Carolina's blog.

More to come over the next days.
