Animals everywhere..

It’s been a week filled with animals. In the small department there was the big black beetle Moxxi found, tasted and found out those are not for eating. I’ve never seen her sneeze and shake her head this much since she found out that ants aren’t food either. They were mad! Just because she dug […]

Lemon cake..

Recipe It’s been a while since we’ve had cake. Last week I couldn’t do anything flour-related because a certain someone forgot to buy flour! (whistling and looking very innocent 😉). I finally got some flour this week and I made a yummy lemon cake. It’s easy and delicious. We need: 150 g AP flour 1½ […]

One of a kind or none at all..

Cooking and baking recipes from other countries are exciting. Maybe you find something you like and it’s always nice to learn about other places and their food. If I had the oportunity to travel, there would be so many places I would want to visit for their food alone. However.. it’s difficult to get the […]

Re-designed litterbox..

What do you do when you have a cat who digs all the way to the bottom of the litterbox before doing her business and this way makes sure that the liquid sticks to the bottom like there’s no tommorow? Before it wasn’t that big a deal, I just put in the effort. No more. […]


Some people won’t go near a thrift shop or be seen wearing something that isn’t new. That’s their choice, no need to judge. More for me and others. Some of the best things I have, I got from a thrift shop. For instance a casserole I bought many years ago for a small sum is […]

Discourtesy, berries and socks..

The world has been a little more vicious than usual the past week. I’ haven’t been able to do anything even remotely constructive and it ticks me off, but what’re you gonna do? You have to choose what’s most important right now and then do that instead of beating a dead horse accomplishing nothing and […]

Rain and practise..

Except for two days it’s been raining non-stop all week. Those two days were lovely. In the late afternoon it gets a bit nippy in the shadow, but in the sun it was really nice. Moxxi helped herself at the blackberries after hunting mice, the rose and the catnip plant are still blooming – I’ll […]

Carrot cake..

Recipe This cake is very delicious. Fresh out of the oven and the whole house has a nice fragrance. There’re carrots in it so it healthy, right? Wrong! It’s not good for us but dang it’s good. Let’s heat up that oven! We’ll need: 2 eggs 100 g butter 150 g brown sugar 125 AP […]

Puffballs, wild patch and the beach..

Some years there’re puffballs in the lawn. It’s usually a fall thing but I found one a couple of days ago. Some claim they’re edible but since I never eat mushrooms to me they’re just something I don’t want in my lawn. Accidents happen and I don’t want a sick doggo. Especially not when the […]

Learning, berries and butterflies..

I’m late today, but I trust you’ll forgive me. I’ve wanted to be able to knit toe up socks for years but never got around to it until now. My problem is difficulties reading – or rather understanding – a written pattern. It’s a perception (not stupidity) thing and it just means I need to […]
