the week :: through the lens

it has been on the back burner, i have not been taking a lot of photos for a while now, and that should change. so i put the "hand made" lens back on the camera body and got started this week. it touched me in a special way, as i wander and have the camera ready be it in the kitchen, or living room table... this enables me to see with new eyes and i like it. we will see if it sticks, it is a start to a new friday review of what caught my eye. there is to be said, that i was inspired by erin boyle and her blog "reading my tea leaves". she does a wonderful job and it is so inspirational to have a look at her photos...

:: 1. apples all over, i love them baked or cooked or just like that.

:: 2. november afternoon, the light is faint.

:: 3. it's pumpkin time in our veggie box.

:: 4. to ease tention and keep calm in the storm.

:: 5. what a wonderful pile of linnen, a friend has been thinking of me and i look forward to new projects in the coming weeks of long evenings.

it's november and the cold has hit home. fine with me, as the sun is still warming the air in the afternoons and that let's me go out and run.
as i was visiting my parents yesterday, thea and i left our house when it was still all grey and very fogy. though not for long, the train took us eastwards and out of the fog. it was wonderful to observe and enjoy the change of scenery. of course there is something special about the november fog, but really i do enjoy the afternoon sunshine more. i do really make an effort to go out and work in the garden or as i sad, go and run...
there are lots of potatoes and all kinds of cabbage and kale on the table, cooked, baked, sauteed...
it's the last from out there, and i enjoy the dark greens the most, the so called "dinosaur-kale"

lots of crêpe

it was a windy and rainy afternoon, for everyone a day to stay put and enjoy the warm living room. lots of yummy food, in our case it was an afternoon of eating crêpe. there were topings, from sauce bolognese to pesto, and cooked pears, nutella or caramel sauce, coconut flakes and mapel syrup. what ever one can dream of...

we spent the hours with friends and loved it. joel got the fire going and at some point there was life music too... of course if we have the two musicians over...
thank you friends for coming and being with us.
