Friday morning is my cooking time, I love my cooking, the only thing I would like someone else to do for me is peel the vegetables, I have vegetables for the soup and vegetables for the stew and vegetables for the meatballs and usually a trash can full of vegetable peels at the end but luckily throwing out the garbage is someone else’s chore.
I love the color of the fresh vegetables and their smell and to think that before I was 16 I refused to even taste them.

And when I'm finished I forget how I hate peeling vegetables until the next Friday (-: This weekend we're having meatballs in tomato and beer sauce with peas

And a beef stew with root vegetables in red wine sauce

I worked quite an appetite writing this post, going to have something to eat (-:

Saturday morning

The weather was playing with us this morning, the sky was clear blue, the sun was shining but it was freezing! Nevertheless we went for a stroll by the sea side, did I mention freezing??... (-:

We had a great time
The Iris is in bloom
One more...
Family, friends, smiling kids, what more can one ask for?

Winter sleep

It happens to me every year in winter, like the bears, I need my winter sleep only I don't actually sleep, I just loose my inspiration and anything I manage to create I'm usually not altogether happy with, I get so judgmental.
Today I thought I'll sit down and play around, something must come out... Took out my beloved Basic Grey paper, ink, ribbons and actually managed to create something (-: Yafit, my good friend gave me this sweeeeeet stamp set by Inkadinkado as a promo for my birthday, it’s a modular one, you can create your own images, stamp and color with aqvarel pencils, isn’t is fabulous? If you live in Israel you can get them at Artishok.

And this is the card

My personal snow man

Next week is my birthday; I told my 15.5 year old this week that I'm going to be 42 in a week and he said, "mom you're 30 with 12 years experience"... I like the way he thinks.
At the "Frida&Numa" forum I participate in we take turns sending each member a birthday card and present, I got mine from Yama, my personalized birthday snow man, a beautiful altered paper bag and a Bday card of course, I love it!

Embroidered handwriting

All done!
