31. me. again

Once again Greta asks me to make gingerbread cookies. But I really want them to be special for Christmas, so we bake something else. Last time it was the cinnamon buns, this time it is kardamom buns. I used this very popular Norwegian recipe. Recommend it! Pretty easy and fast to make, and look delicious.
PS. Now I use my blogging time at the same time when I do oil pulling, so you now know what I am doing. Gross, right?

The experiment

I am starting an experiment. Have you heard of oil pulling? So I used the pure extra virgin coconut oil and managed around 15 minutes. Not bad for the first time. I thought I would not be able to do itfor more than a few minutes. So I will continue every day (don't promise, though, to do it in he morning, since it is difficult not to talk for 20 minutes o anybody in the morning here), and I will see if there is something changing in a couple of weeks. I am not quite sure about some of the benefits people are talking about, but I understand clearly that the dental area should improve. Hope for cleaner and whiter teeth, at least.

{this moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember

In the end of April we are going to Spain. We have a very good friends getting married in Madrid, and we are very excited to attend their wedding. But before that, we will have 5 days for a short road trip from Barcelona. My dream is to visit Andorra in spring and witness the cherry blossom. There are some other places I have heard about where I would like to stop. Do you have any other advice where to go around that area? And what to buy in Andorra (I have heard that it is like a huge supermarket, but much cheaper than everwhere else)
BCN - Besalú, Girona - Castellfollit de la Roca, Girona - Cadaqués, Girona - Andorra - BCN
Do you want to help me plan this little trip. Acomodation, sightseing, food?

The latest paintings

Greta continues painting, meanwhile. She explains to me some of the pictures, so I know what she means. So look for yourself:
1. This one is a mouse eatinh something, sitting on the grass. The sun shines on the blue sky with some clouds. Yes, she told me all that.
2. These are the snowmen
3. Yellow bird, violet mouse, light-blue person, pink snake. The green, I don't remember.
4. The blue bird.

All of them at age 2.9.

Sunday in pictures

Our day was nice and slow. We played a lot, read many books, made pearls, Santiago went skiing and to take pictures to the river. Greta got a plate of snow from the terrace and ate it :-) She made wonderful clay craft :-) Had a nice lunch and dinner including half a box (the big one) of yoghourt. Painted a couple of nice pictures, too.
