Von diesem und jenem / About this and that
Oh yes. That great board I got as a Christmas present from my wish fulfiller. The saying I wrote by myself on that board... as you may have guessed... because it could look nicer. But well, I'm no graphic artist. The board was such a surprise, I didn't have a clue what my hubby had in mind. When he saw my poor attempts to get customers into my garden for my little shop last summer, he felt sorry. I guess, now everybody from the street should see this big sign, else they are blind. But I like the board that much that I didn't want to just store it somewhere in the house. So I wrote that saying on it and now it stands in our living room.
During the last days my "soap kitchen" had become a face lifting. It became a storeroom for my self made things. It was always a bit embarrassing, when somebody asked to see my things and I had first to take there a box of soap, and another one with cards, then I had to search for the box of cross stitched things and another one with crochet things... I had to find a better solution.
Well, it's still a bit of a chaos, but it will become better soon. Hmm... I should have painted the frame white... but really, at the moment I'm absolutely not in the mood to paint. So I better let it be than doing it only half assed.
This shelf I painted white before I got bored of painting. I'm going to store my wrapped soaps in it, so that I can always see what I've got left. But as you can see, it is still half empty and I've got a lot of soaps to wrap in :o).
But in the Gwundergarten is not only work to do. No, I really do relax too. For example with that Countryfile, an English magazine which I subscribed lately. This is my first example of it :o). Now I'm ready to dream, to sigh and then I'm going to show my husband all those lovely places I'd like to visit, with big eyes and a pleading "Plllleeeeeeaaaaaaaase. When do we go there?" followed by a big flutter of the eyelashes. And if this doesn't help, I even sigh deeper and maybe a little tear will appear and if he still keeps preferring the South part of the World for holidays the next year (this year Scotland is on save ground *LoL*) then I have to work hard on my psychological warfare.
Ida. Guck mal, was in dieser englischen Ausgabe für ein Rezept drinnen war. Richtig, Räbebappe *lach*.... ja, unsere Vorliebe ist also schon richtig international. Mich hat's grad motiviert nochmals Räbe (=weisse Rüben) für das kommende Wochenende einzukaufen *mjamm*.
And this is especially for Ida. Look, our favorite Swede-puree is known in England too *LoL*. This recipe is printed in the Countryfile. This just made me buy some Swede for the weekend menu.
So und nun sollte ich mal schauen, was der Tiefkühler und der Kühlschrank so treiben. Ich habe die tiefen Temperaturen genutzt, um mal alles nach draussen zu räumen und rauszuputzen. GsD habe ich einen braven Kater, der sich nicht über unsere Lebensmittel hermacht, sondern ein Nickerchen vorzieht.
In most blogs I already saw lovely spring flowers, like hyacinths, tulips etc. But I keep waiting with buying those lovely flowers, else I could hardly wait for spring. So until then my little white azalea tree may spent a bit of winter joy to me.
Now I have to see what my freezer and refrigerator are doing. Because we've got such cold weather I emptied them both and switched them off to clean them. Luckily my cat Noah isn't interested in our food, he prefers to take a nap.
Habt es fein / Have a good time!
