Weird Wool Wednesday: the little things (aka Girl Fortification Floofs)

I did it! I baked a far breton that was edible:

I put it on one of my nice, vintage cake platters. Just to please myself πŸ™‚

Lillepoes was very pleased with herself today. She managed to express her wish to me to go on safari in the little shed. And I complied! A story in pictures:

I closed the door and left her there for about ten minutes. In the dark. She likes to explore and climb on top of things in the dark. But today there were not enough mystery boxes and high things. Just a couple of cushions. When I opened the door again I got complaints:

We end the story with a cleanly finished off bowl full of Fancy Old Cat Fortification Food and a back paw stretch that predicts a wash and a nice long nap:

While Lillepoes snored on the couch I did a little more sewing. This is my sewing corner in the cabin. It’s surrounded by friendliness and loveliness:

This is where I put my waste threads and such:

It’s a sheepy magnet.

I wore these pins today, just to make myself giggle:

And these handspun socks:

In the afternoon we were to drive back to the city. Before that I had a little walk around the property. Just say hello/goodbye to all the trees and animals. In the back, in the little patch of forest, I filled the little pond with some extra water. It has been extraordinarily dry the past couple of weeks and the water level was getting too low for all the tadpoles that live there:

A little walk in our meadow. No horseflies, no mosquitoes.

Now I’m back in the city. Lillepoes complained all the way here.
Now she’s sleeping on my husbands lap (he’s always so warm, the cats love him).

I just had a little bike ride into the centre and got some buttons for my monkey blouse:

Now I’ll go set up my sewing corner here and maybe do a little sewing. I’ll see about arranging some nice and lovely things around my sewing spot here too. At the cabin it was more important to me than I had imagined so I’d like some here too.

  1. I derive enormous pleasure from these daily diaries:it is so very interesting to learn about the life of a young, talented, interesting European.
    Your bees, Anna ! – they are so very … STRIPED ! πŸ˜€ I wish readers of blogs were able to post the occasional picture: I’d show you the little Aussie bee – and it doesn’t sting if you accidentally tread on it (or whatever).
    Everything written up that needs to be ?
