My amaryllis is in bloom for the second time. I thought that I bought a pink and white version but it gives a complete pink flower. Love it anyway :-)

DD3 wanted to bake gingerbread man cookies. Since we don't have a tin mold she made a self cardboard gingerbread man. The cookies turned out very tasteful and lovely.

Day 331

It's dark and still no picture. Pfew, what kind of picture shall I take today.
So I come up with this picture. It is 'nothing' .. 
and then I notice myself in the little ball in the middle. It makes me smile.
(I know it is hard to see but it is really me)

Day 330

This morning I was so surprised when I wake up and came in my living room.
The sun was shining on the angel on top of the Christmas tree.
A little moment later the sun was gone.

Day 325

With so many daughters who prefer mittens above gloves, especially mom's hand knitted mittens lined with a piece of fleece, is here again a picture of mittens in progress.
This time for DD2. 
(and the thing about girls is, they want to change their mittens by each outfit :-/ )

Day 322

The light was beautiful in my garden. Great tits were flying in and out and everywhere around. 
I placed myself with camera and telelens at a great spot. The only thing was that I had to wait for a Great tit at the oak tree with the perfect light for a perfect 'Great tit' picture.
Hmmm, it seemed that they were playing hide and seek with me.

Day 317

My friend came over and showed me her find at a thrift shop.
It is a book about needle work at school. 
Ooh my..., don't you think that the drawings are so cute?
I LOVE it. 
Now I really hope to find one for myself.
