{this moment}




A Friday ritual.
A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

at night


life is super busy, so much to do, so many meetings and events to attend, so many discussions to have had. and beside all these, there are the exciting makings and doings and the ballett cendrillon to attend. well i love this time of year and i don't mind the baking and crafting at all. this week i started out to bake a big batch of christmas cookies with my neighboor-friends. we do it for the bazar next week, and we love to work together for a morning.

so as i walked home tonight, together with elias, i had to stop and quickly take out the camera. the trolley bus wires are just such an amazing sight, i had to capture them. that's what the picture is about. and it does reflect my everyday living, with all its crossing overs and under and connecting and networking...

november day

today started out very bleak and rainy, a day i was looking forward to spend indoors, i thought. well never mind, by mid day the sky was very blue and sunny. it was wonderful to sit out side and eat my picnic in the sun, of course well dressed, as we do write november 18th and it is in order to have the temperature being in the mid fourties.

as the leafs are falling, there is a lot to be seen. i love autumn leafs, even if they are not in new england and not sugar maple...
of course i miss those days

the cookie baker in the family


amos really likes to bake, not just at home, but also at grandmas place. well also not just anything, but right now cookies are on his radar. for a long while it has been muffins and cup cake. but as the advents season, soon to be upon us, calls for, cookies must be "created".
it's often a bit chaotic, and every time him as well as me (or who ever works with him) learns a lot. doubling the recipe, how to use a big knife, which lemon grater is better as the other, or how to hold the lemon to grate in order not to grate your fingers...

so this time, we got a wonderful spice cookie to taste. just excellent! thank you amos for all the enthusiasm and endurance in learning such a wonderful skill.
