Today’s prompt is an ever-favourite. Kitchen! Yes, I am in love with my kitchen,
- the wooden cinnamon coloured cupboards I bought from the Family who had this Apartment before me,
- the “latte macchiato”-coloured wall facing the cupboards,
- the windows looking out on my other very favourite room, the Loggia and even further to the back gardens with their beautiful old trees.
- the fact that there is always a gentle scent of coffee in the air
- the fact that I could do a “Cup Party” with lots of People, as I do have …well…lots of mugs and teacups. Each has a history, really each.
- the big kitchen table who today met sepia ink. It took it quite well. 🙂
On another note: Yes, I am happy to have 2 weeks of fall break, it’s a bliss. For this reason I dedicated 3 hours of this afternoon to drawing and colouring today’s prompt, kitchen.
Translated: I drew and coloured with a considerable amount of concentration…and dedication, so, put love and energy into something which means a lot to me, which makes me happy and grateful: the coffee with chocomel, a Cup of verbena-lemongrass tea at night, candle light, fairy lights and so much more…
The result? Feeling accomplished and grateful, even more as I like the outcome but it wasn’t even the most important Thing. The process, the positive thoughts while being engaged, this is just so good, so nourishing that I want to practice it as often as possible.
Thanks heavens there 25 days of october left, and then: repeat 🙂

Good morning everyone.
I know that I am most likely to be in a big crowd posting about plans for the new year.
-Yes, I do have a word (well, 3 of them, really) for this year.
-No, I didn’t make the classic resolutions, instead scheduled myself for 2 things by already getting the material ready to start it:
With a look on this photo I’d say the idea pretty much explains itself, doesn’t it?

The other activity set for my year – and having happy memories of Susannah Conway’s August Break – is to take part in the
“365 grateful Project”
Again – this explains itself.
Expect me to keep you posted.
Have a good second day of this fresh and new year!

Ready for having friends over.
First of all: happy friday, dear you, who is reading this blog post. I hope you are happy to start the Weekend (soon, especially depending on which time Zone you’re in 🙂 ) Here’s a Piece of cake for you – and I am baking a sweet whitebread with a Brown-sugar crust and Brown sugar crumples in it (and will share this virtually with you guys, too, soonish)Yesterday, in my contentment of early finishing desk work and soaking up the autumn-ish atmosphere of my surroundings, I did a very spontaneous, really heartfelt post, I just wanted to find an Expression of the mood I am in… The comments by Sherry, Sherry and Michelle really warmed my heart! Thank you, dear ones! I did intend to offer some atmosphere-ish scent by writing… but I wasn’t sure whether not this would be perceived the way I wanted it. Your comments really showed me that it worked, I felt connected to you guys! Like almost with one foot in Ontario with Sherry and Sherry even 🙂 (No, I don’t have particularly long legs hahaha)
Now let’s talk about artmaking (always!). Tara Leaver, whose Website I recommend anyway to anyone interested in starting to pursue a creative take on …life…posted a blog entry about making art which got your own Fingerprint on it, means, which actually looks like you yourself created it. This is the very Stadium which I find very interesting. Because I have a pile of paintings and other things which might just start to learn Walking by themselves..but they still have “collaged copies” of my “Gurus” in them 🙂 Which isn’t a bad Thing. I love Tara’s take on this Topic and if this got you intetested – go and see yourself.
