we got a big surprise parcel! o yes how wonderful is it if friends think of you and not just think, but even go out to purchase a few lovelies and send it across the atlantic, to gift us!
thank you so very much you three over there in the new world, we all totally love mail even better parcels. and this one was super special, a latin workbook and cd for amos, origami paper for the crafters, lots of stickers and a long wonderful letter. a special post card and of course i got the best of all treats, 2 1/2 yards of yummy fabric. and this is super special, as a&a picked the fabric for a certain purpose... (the sewing machine will be picked up from the doctor this afternoon!)
although i have to admit, there is one more project right now waiting to be continued, before i get started on that other one. hey and that michael miller's dog speak fabric, it must have been picked by those two lovely ladies i can't imagine anyone else in my circle of friends picking this ;)

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. Inspired by SouleMama. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

on tuesday at the market i got myself three peonies, wonderful still closed ones. it was love at first sight and i just could not resist. the oak branches i collected on my way home. riding the bike with trailer along mattebach bike path...
and now, today the three peonies are in full bloom, they could not look more gorgeous, it was money spent well!
nothing more to say, it's summer her and i love to hang laundry behind the house, take it down two hours later all dry and smelling of sunshine. it's good, the heat and the lightness of a morning, woken up by a strong sunbeam stroking my face!
listening to the birds, the chickens being loud and raising their voices too, as they want to get out into the sunshine. i love summer, and that is now.
