gratitude monday

starting the week with gratitude. I'm grateful for
  • this yoga video by sadie nardini (it was exactly what I needed this saturday)
  • the xx on rdio
  • the opportunity to take a long relaxing bath (thank you family)

  • our public library (something I do appreciate about urban life, almost as important as parks)

  • golden lentil dal (this recipe)
  • autumn
  • my job (yes. I love you, too) 


on sewing: laptop sleeve


found a lovely tutorial for a laptop sleeve.
sewing one was on my list for ages – and I'm quite happy with the result...
more pics here.

late summer reading


there wasn't this much reading this summer. but there was

- the sound of the sea
- newborn turtles
- 3 new bikinis
- no new sandals (couldn't find any)
- the scent of chai tea, served in small glasses
- almond ice cream
- lot's of sun
- my old but fav scratchy sunglasses
- a simple black neckholder dress on heavy rotation
- turtles, again, and everywhere

now back home with two new books (and huge bowls of coffee)
hello september. xx


hello on wednesday

forgotten shirts, new shorts. summer rain. tarte au framboises. the universe. in a bottle.
counting the days. hello on wednesday.
