The poop princess

This is the way we do it at the cabin.
And no, there's no flush.
Its like they had in the olden days you know.
You just sit and let it fall
(sorry if it disturbes your fragile nerves.. )
Today I did a dirty job.
Well, its all empty now.
The job was nothing to a brave girl like me!

See the newly covered "grave" behind it?

Thats were it all went. As the Teletubbies once said: All gone!

Just thought I'd share it with you.

Yorkshire puddings

I'm a trainee and I'm working on it.

My mother-in-law makes the best yorkshire puddings. When we visit, we get them next to our stew. Ther're lovely and fluffy!

Once when my husband and I went to a pub, the staff suddenly came out from the kitchen with large trays of yorkshire puddings with gravy on, and all the guests pinched one of the tray with their fingers and enjoyed the fluffy and dripping treat with their pints.

My son loves yorkshire pudding, but he's got his own way. He eats them with strawberry jam. So when I set the table for our Christmas dinner, with all the trimmings, I put out an extra serving of yorkshire puddings for him and the jar of strawberry jam. I think that everyone should have what they like the best for their Christmas dinner. So he munches through them with delight while we enjoy our meat, different potatoes gravy and the variety of vegetables.

We're far from Christmas now, but why not treat the little man with some yorkshire puddings on a warm summer morning:

Fierce summer beauty

They've got the looks

But sting
If you get to close.
So we'll try to avoid that.

What we saw

Rose Cricket

Green visiter in my Rose
They say that when I get older, I won't hear them play.
So I must enjoy it while I can!

Little Chef invites

When we came home from work today
our little 11.5 year old chef
asked us to sit down while he got our dinner ready
A mash of swede, carrots and potatoes
then a layer of thick sausages
and cheese on top.
He's learned the reciepe in school.
Did it all by himself
And it was lovely and just what we wanted!
Then there was dessert:
Layers of,
whipped cream
apple jam
and crushed rusk.
It's called :
"Tilslørte bondepiker"
It means veiled farmgirls (don't ask)
One of our favourites!

So well treated on an ordinary Wednesday!

And so proud of the little Chef.

Dad and son

I see them
They share the same loudness
they've got the same hunger for mischief
The brown eyes
their singing
their warm hearts

Morning bath

When we're at the cabin
and the weather is warm
we just have to go for a swim before breakfast!
No breakfast taste better than the one you have
after a refreshing swim!
