It's one of those mornings..

There are mornings where everything just trots along in a reasonable speed - and there are mornings following nights where the youngest in hour household decided to wake up about five times per hour. Those mornings require large coffees, double shots. And the leftover brownies that hubby asked me to bring to work really seem fit. Today will be a day of caffeine and chocolate. 

Large latte with two shots of coffee.. 
I think (seeing as I don't really remember..) the last time I checked the clock last night, I had about four hours left to sleep until my alarm rang. And by then I hadn't even managed to sleep yet. Which means that it was somewhere around 1:30.. I don't know what was bothering A last night. It could be the vaccines from last week (they can get a reaction up to 7-10 days later) or teeth, but I do hope she'll sleep better tonight.


Hubby and I are watching the new season of House of Cards, we're on episode 6 or 7 now, I think. And last night we were discussing how, a few season back, we both agreed that Frank Underwood - the main character - probably was the worst/scariest politician ever. Well, last night we talked about how we both realised that the real life, in fact, is much scarier. I'm not one to comment much about politics, but I'm worried about what's happening - and I sincerely hope there's a better candidate than that big, scary, angry, provocative man who's taking over everything (or so it seems).

Crafty update

My hands may be knitting, but my mind is quilting.

Flowers of February

I ment to publish this post a few weeks ago, but time has not quite been on my side lately. Starting to work again means early mornings (too early?) and late nights, not much time to get anything done. I miss being home with A, and I hate to miss all the things she's learning and doing and experiencing on this level of her development. She started walking the week before I returned to work, 10 1/2 months old. Now she's basically running (or trotting off in a remarkable speed for her age).

There has been literally no sewing of lately either. If I'm not falling asleep on the couch or going to bed early, I'm knitting on a jacket for myself. It's speeding along quite nicely, considering the lack of time and energy I've had to get anything done lately. 

Anyway, I ment to post these pictures of an abundance of flowers which decorated our house in the beignning of February. 

Hubby and A had met some ladies selling fastelavensris, for decoration, and bought these feathery twigs (which have small green leaves now).

Contained in some tiki mugs hubby ordered from a bar in Las Vegas (Frankie's Tiki Place?).

A vase my grandmother painted some years ago. I love the little goldfish swimming between the water lillies. 

A grand bouquet of roses and such from the company I work through, to express their joy of me coming back to work. Lovely flowers, I really like those purple roses. 

P had decorated some fastelavensris in his kindergarden too, but it seems I forgot to take a picture. Will get one taken soon (they're still around, also with tiny green leaves)!

It's like Christmas allover again!

This morning I showelled snow before going to work. 

I bet the kids in the kindergarden will have a wonderful day today! (I'll be innthe office, dreaming of Christmas..)
