On one side everything is at ease at the moment - great!

On the other (health-) side a bit of improvement would be welcome.

I worked yesterday and today again. There is still sometimes a bit trouble with headache and so on, but life has to go on.

This weekend I will have to eat healthy and learn I guess.

I am still fighting these little unwanted visitors. Sleeping a lot and hot tea, taking good care of myself.

Today there is a bit of blue sky between clouds. And it is friday - market time. So I decided to take a short trip there to get myself something healthy to eat. Seems I must have looked really bad - I got an extra apple from the apple seller for free and the bakery throw an extra roll in. Love you guys.

After a lot of coughing and not much sleep, headaches etc I decided to stay home and later doc told me I have catched a virus that is running around and I am contagious.
So no work today and tomorrow and staying out of places where I can give this little ones new homes.

I felt the whole day like in an iceblock. Now I started coughing.

I have not seen any shrimp for some days. Well, they are very little (about 1 cm long and smaller than 1 mm) and live in holes/plants etc. So I hope the fishes did not monge them all - they are just hiding somewhere. Well, I am not sure - the fishes are more agil than ever and perhaps the reason for this are some extra proteins (mmmhhh shrimps)?

I myself had a veggie day. Not just healthy food, oh, no, but no meat either.

Today - give away - closed

Today I finished a pillow cover. It is red, orange, green and made out of corduroy. The corduroy "stripes" are going along the long side. It is great for pillows that are 60x40 cm.
And I decided to give it away (no, not the pillow - just the cover!)

All you have to do is to leave a comment. I will choose a winner tomorrow.

Today is tomorrow so the pillow -cover will go to Hong Kong and a second prize will go to the Netherlands.

Today we had some sunshine so I was able to take some pics of the bags I sewed these past weeks.

The first one is an Amy Butler pattern using an Echino fabric.
The others are "Ratzfatztaschen" (a pattern by farbenmix and German fabrics /red Westfalenstoffe/yellow and blue by jolijou/corduroy orign unknown)

And I finally got my new glasses. Pics later....

Today was a good day:

I was late and the bus was allready off, but he stopped for me again, sparing me 20 minutes waiting.

And finally the shrimps arrived - all alive. The fishes tried to munch them, but gave up soon - all shrimps are still fine. And I saw allready the first pair of shrimps mate. Hope we will have little ones soon.

This week seems to run, but I am happy nonetheless.

I am still waiting for the shrimps (I was assured that they are able to live one week in the parcel), but I got a big parcel from vlisco, my new phonecase from castegram and I use my new selfsewn bag in pale blue each day.

Today I tried to get to work with public transport.
It should take about 1:10 hours to get to work, 20 more than by car. Well, the bus was 20 minutes late and I arrived late at work and on the way home the bus was so late I missed the train so another 20 minutes more than usual.

Why have I bought tickets for a months worth?

Sonntag, 5. Januar 2014


I finished the bag I started yesterday and I finished a pillowcase.

Samstag, 4. Januar 2014


Today I finished a bag I started months ago. And I started a new one.

My fishes will get friends soon - I ordered some shrimps to join them. Hope weather will be warm enough that they arrive save.

Today was the weekly market nearby. Most time I have no chance to get there coz it is in the morning when I am allready on my way to work and it finishes around 1 pm (I work until 5 pm). I bought some chicken breast for a  soup and cooked the soup with ginger and garlic. Soon we will have it for dinner.

And I did some more shopping. I ordered the new lamp for our bathroom. Now I have nearly all lamps we need - just my sewing room needs two more, but I am still not sure where and what I will get (I am thinking about this since two years allready and I can live on with the pure lightbulbs for a while...).

Today I ordered myself some new glasses. I want something new to wear. I shopped locally for my glasses in a shop that looked like it was directly from the seventies - they were nice and helped me a lot to decide which ones to buy.

And I ordered for the first time ever at Vlisco. Want to check out their fabrics and they have a sale at the moment - so why wait?

In the last days of 2013 I bought myself a new (yellow!) bag from bree. Bree is a local branch that is located nearby and they have a fabric sale I used. I love their designs.

Seems 2014 will become a colourful year!

What will you focus on in 2014?

I want to "live"!

I want to stop worrying about what my future brings.
I want to enjoy each moment of my life as much as possible.

Now it is your turn.
