I don;t know what it is, perhaps the starting of the change of season, the weather changes or whatever, but designing is very low at the moment. I try every day but after a few pieces done, somehow real inspiration has gone, and I hate that! I think, I just have to let that happen for a bit more time and suddenly it will be there again, it always does, normally LOL
I did kick myself in the butt yesterday, but to my shame I have to admitt, that it didn't help very much! So result is, I've done very little in and/or around the house. But also a bit because Jan had something strange.! When he woke up yesterday morning he showed me he had a lot of blood on his face and even body, you know, those little streams of blood! First I was startled, but after quick inspection I was at ease, it wasn't something to be afraid of. During his sleep he probably had something itching on his ear, scratched it severely and he had a tiny little wound there. But you cannot imagine how much blood can come out ot that!!!!! Gosh, it just kept dripping and dripping, finally after a minute or 15 it stopped, so I took the kitchen paper off and I could put a plaster on it .
I went into the bedroom to check on the sheets of the bed, but that wasn't so bad. Only his pillow had suffered, and just a few drops on the undersheet. Well, I cleaned the pillow and changed all the sheets etc.
I hope he didn't do the same this night, once is enough LOL.!
Such a small thing happening can change your whole dayrythm, stupid but true.
But I tried out a new recipe for dinner. I bought some fennel and found a nice recipe for it. And I must say it tasted not bad at all. The fenneltubers weren't that big so I prepared the recipe for the two of us, but it also could do for four.
Take two fennel tubers
some salt and pepper
2 pieces of garlic, pressed,
4 soup spoons of parsil
2-3 tomatoes, skinned, take out the seeds and chopp into little squares
1 teaspoon of thyme
about 5 teaspoons of grated cheese
5 soupspoons of bread cumps
Heat the oven at 225 C. Take of the fennel the outer 4 leaves and cook them in water till they are almost ready to eat. The rest of the fennel you chopp up in very small swuares, fry them together with the garlic in a pan with a bit of oil. Also put in two spoons of parsil and the chopped tomatoes and season it with a bit of salt and pepper(I also put in some chopped mushrooms , just a few, they were left overs from the other day). Then you fill the leaves with the mix and lay them in an ovendish.(if they don;t stand nicely, cut a little bit of the leaves)
Then mix the rest of the parsil with the thyme, grated cheese ann breadcrums, season also with a bit of pepper and salt. This mix you put over the filled leaves, add a few drops of oil and put the dish with the leaves into the oven for about 20 minutes.
Well, something to try out for you, perhaps?
Okay, now today there are really a few things to do, all not taking too much time but necessary. If I do it all, I can be at ease tomorrow and perhaps weather will be nice enough to take a walk. At least they predicted a bit more sunshine and almost no, or even not at all rain.
Do I still have a freebie for you? Yes, I have, all in a green colourscheme, named: Summer Leaves.
Now another coffee and then I get moving!
Have a great day and also a wonderful weekend!
