{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.
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.

crafting in the sun

i have been getting the supercraft kit four times a year, and love it. not that i'm quick in doing the crafts and o now, i usually don't stick super close to the idea. i love the materials and suggestions as well as the freedom it comes with.
and yes it does get me inspired and the crafty juices flowing.
there i was this afternoon, all kids were in school or kindergarten and the weather at it's best for a late august afternoon. i took out the felt craft as i felt like my iced coffee would need a cozy to stay cool, just a moment longer...
cutting felt and punching holes, stitching with yard and loving the touch of it. loving the rhythm of my fingers moving it's so relaxing and that's likely one of the important moments in my day. and as i love activity and people and mostly both together, sometimes i fall into the trap of not recuperating. so here i am and just love the moment.

the next moment: folding the laundry and serving snacks, reading dinner and setting the table, playing games and reading books to my kids....

hummus for dinner

we haven't made hummus for a long time. never mind all of us like it and so i just had to soak a big bag chick peas. as the parsley around my house didn't survive the summer, either to dray in june or it got invaded by ants in july.... i was thankful for the veggie planters in front of the library. it has been a city wide project and we helped to plant tomatoes, borago, parsley and a bunch of calendula. with this in mind, i do once in a while enjoy taking home a bundle of parsley.
and now we will have hummus for dinner with some fresh pita as well as farmers bread, yum!
