So thankful for the fact that she is playing so well by herself right now because this pregnant lady (currently in week 35 of my pregnancy) is exhausted today.
Tuesday 6:30 am
"office" view // until my maternity leave starts in three weeks, my days are filled with substitute teaching and guiding the new teacher who is taking over my class + taking breaks whenever I can
it's a beautiful day // don't let it go away
lifesaver // fan club member no 1
current view from the shade under the plum tree // a bucket of cold water for my swollen feet and a page turner crime novel for my overheated brains
I will name this The Week of Al Fresco Dinners
Things I like lately: red currants...
...and blue gooseberries from the garden. Plus Sara and my mother-in-law for picking them.
She loves having her grandparents over for dinner.

A brutal start to the morning with a massive nosebleed requires endless hugs, cartoons and smoothie (plus mamma being late for work).
Even the most ordinary everyday clutter looks a little bit better in good light.
she is beyond words excited about this // it will not make our garden prettier, but it will add a whole new dimension of fun
Friday 6:45 am // she woke up at 6 am and ran straight to the window to check if they had finished assembling the trampoline
sunny summer Sunday breakfast
sunny summer Sunday second breakfast // al fresco, with a canned souvenir from last year's Mallorca vacation - my favorite canned tuna
What a day! // Water sprinkler under the trampoline was an instant hit.
Five adults, six kids, lots of sun, plenty of food and ice cream galore. It was a pretty good Sunday, if you ask me.
My best crumble to date: strawberry, raspberry and red currant. Served with Mövenpick vanilla ice cream, of course. (I'm picky when it comes to ice cream; I choose quality before quantity.)
