If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams
and endeavors to live the life he as imagined
he will meet with success the unimagined in common hours
Henry Thoreau

Spring has Sprung

Our first wildflowers

Recently I buy jam jars because they look so pretty
and yes, sometimes I scoop them out
so I can fill the jars with little flowers right away

Sweet people

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend
ours was filled with lots of outdoor fun and
ridiculously many strawberries !

I stumbled upon this beautiful quote

to love a person is to learn the song
that is in their heart
and to sing it to them
when they have forgotten

Wishing you a week filled with
sweet people to pass the time with

Simply happy

look at the flowers, it is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are
look at the trees, look at the birds,
look at the clouds, look at the stars ..
and if you have eyes you will be able to see that
the whole existance is joyful
Everything is simply happy

Have you ever heard of adding
3 dl black coffee
to your pancake pastry?

I bought these 2 brown bags at the mill
the miller told me to add black coffee to the pastry
to achieve a lovely brown colour
I was ... let's say, surprised

how do you bake or eat your pancakes ?
I like to be surprised ;o)

Good coffee and petals

May you have warm words on a cold evening,
a full moon on a dark night and
a smooth road all the way to your door
Irish Blessings quote

Here's to a wonderful new week full of good coffees and lovely colored petals !
