It's this time of the year

It is this time of the year when we start thinking about Christmas.In the middle of the last week she said "I want to sew."I did not have any intentions to do any crafts but sitting by her and helping her with her project I made this decoration for our Christmas tree.Otherwise my weekend is lazy and relaxing.Today I made an apple pie for the first time in my life.Everything from scratch,crust and apples and all.It turned out so delicious,that I could not believe i did it.I did not know it was so easy. Pictures and recipe will follow in one of the next posts.I hope you had a good weekend too.

Pictures from the last Halloween.I am kind of slow uploading my pictures into the computer and I have some good ones.This year I enjoyed decorating for Halloween having in mind that this one is not my favourite holiday.I guess I managed to connect with my inner child this time.And that happened with the huge help of my daughter. Her enthusiasm is always so contagious.

#120 and 121

I am going on posting some sketches from my one-a-day challenge.I started with the good intentions to do a sketch or piece of art a day but life tried hard to be in the way all the time.That's why I changed the idea to as-many-as-possible-this-year.I am going on sketching whenever it is possible and posting the same way.These two quick sketches were done with colored pencils at the swimming pool last summer.

I do not usually write about food.I like to cook but I forget to take pictures.And it takes awhile to stage them beautifully too.Anyway, there was time ,maybe a couple of years ago,when I was very interested in baking homemade bread.I love bread very much and it is not a secret that you can't find good bread here in this part of the world.The process of making it is more industrialised and it takes away from the taste.So,I started making it and did it for a while till I realised that I put some extra weight.It was so delicious that I could not go by with just one piece.I had to have a second... ,a third...Now I feel like trying it again.This picture is from that time.

A quiet weekend at home

We are having a quiet weekend at home.My girl is having a friend on a sleepover and they definitely are having fun. My migraine is back.I had better plans for this weekend but one can not do much with constant pain. I do not have fresh pictures from this week so I am showing you a corner of my house.The pottery pieces are made by my talented step daughter.

Back streets

It was cloudy and gloomy today.And it was raining most of the day.But I had enough to do at home.Caught up with some chores.I work more hours at work now and there is less time for crafts and arts.
