I know.. This time I can’t just get by with posting another this moment on Friday. The blogging is just lovely, but I need to get into the ‘writing regulary’. It isn’t as easy as I thought it was.
But, I have been quite active the last days. We were on a short trip last week. And last Sunday we had a big First Birthday, so we had guests. Both of our parents came a long way to enjoy this special day with us, we were joined by a lot of neighbors with their children. The weather was wonderful, so we could celebrate outside. It was a lovely day. I didn’t have time to take pictures, but there were enough people with cameras.
Besides having to organise the party, I did a lot of knitting lately. And sewing too, actually. The pictures will come, but today I will show you what I did TODAY, not for a few days. I’ve had a lovely day today, very busy but filled with nice, home related things. I love those days.. After coming home of Fysio Therapy for Sara, I put her in her bed and started to do what I needed to do for two weeks now: I gave my plants some new dirt and more space. I enjoy this work so much! And Friday is the day I’m at home alone with my girl, so I can’t bother anybody else but myself. If you think, I should be able to put a plant from one basket into another without making mess, you’re wrong..
Well, actually, on the pictures it doesn’t look so bad.. And in the end, this is what was standing on my table:
Just in case anybody is interested: Hibiscus, Tamaya, Coffea, Tea, Clivia Gardeners Proud (Oh yes, it’s a perfect name..), African lilley, Cyprus Grass, Blue Lampion, Hoya, Frangipani, again a Tamaya, Perfume flower.. Mostly grown in my kitchen :).
I’m so happy I have it done now! After lunch, my baby decided she wanted to sleep a little more (?), and I took the chance to start to clean up my sewing room. Which is quite a nice name for the place where I have my sewing machine. Actually, it is the place where the dryer is, the food supplies are standing and a big table is, pretending to be there for my sewing. Or maybe more to put things on, like laundry, letters, laundry, iron, laundry, some unfinished projects and, oh, did I mention the laundry? This just needed to change! I took the chance I had (not having my dear one at home, asking me to think and speak about this a little longer), emptied all the closets and turned the (extremely heavy) table-with-screwn-on-closets in an impossible way in another corner, decided I would need another closet to (finally) store my fabrics in a nice way (I think a big moving basket is not the most attractive way to save those wonderful fabrics of mine), took one out of the kitchen and placed it on top of the table. This was getting incredibly good! Space for me and My Things! Completely peaceful I started sorting out my fabrics, folding them all with love and happiness in the same way. Then I heard my daughter wake up. And when I came back in the kitchen, my euphoric mood was gone in an instant. This is what I saw:
Somehow I managed to start cooking just this moment, with my baby (who’s officially toddler now, isn’t she?), and cleaning up the mess in between, to have everything back to the place it came from. I closed the door and decided to continue tomorrow. Then I can hopefully show you the result. It will be lovely. I hope..
To end with, a picture to show you my tomato plants on this very day! They had much bigger tomatoes already, but some of my dear guests stumbled at the door, falling exactly on the tomato plants. With a glass of wine in the hand. It made all of the fruits fall off. I don’t need to tell you how loud this was. And how many blue spots and hurting arms and legs on the next day.. But now is clear, the tomatoes recovered quicker than the person falling over them, and this is what they had to show me today:
Have a lovely weekend! Next time, a little less pictures, maybe.. 🙂
