roulades

A German surprise package traditionally filled with pieces of dill pickle, mustard and thinly sliced bacon.

So instead of throwing myself into the planned spring detox and sports  in the (supposed) sunshine I’m spending my days lazily on the sofa, recovering, drinking hot English tea and trying to motivate myself to breathe the snowy air outside my warm cocoon not only for shovelling snow. Snowboots and ski pants on, camera hidden under the parka I bravely headed  into the forest. […]

The kitchen in progress is constantly on my mind: walls down- done, new window – done, walls – painted. The next step on the list is the wooden floor.
