School holidays have started today (hooray for the company at home!). And today we had to go downtown to fetch our Christmas cards. Yeah, I know, it’s a bit too late for Christmas cards, but it’s me and my time-feel and my organisation skills. And it’s better late than never, isn’t it?

Have you already decorated your home? I haven’t, aside of the Christmas lights on our kitchen table, that actually were left there pretty much accidentally a few days ago, but fitted so well, so I decided to leave them there. The coldness and greyness of outside just have to be counterbalanced with winter-holiday-inspired decorated rooms and a sweet vanilla smell of a home-made baking. By the way, speaking of baking, I would suggest you to visit this treasure page with a pile of specially selected recipes of home baked cookies.
Yesterday after a few weeks of sitting at home we finally were able to make it outside. I hadn’t been outside so long, that I was actually starting to forget what it looks like there.
There were some green leaves in the beginning of November.
I was hunting for an autumn signs today. “Autumn signs” is a Veronika’s phrase that she brought from her kindergarten last year. The truth is, I always hated cold seasons. And an autumn itself, particularly the part of it after fall and before winter always made me feel a depression with it’s gloominess of grey days, trees, grass, birds and actually grey everything. But something has changed this year. I don’t know, maybe it’s all because of the kids, but I truly love dimmed colours I see around me now, and the sun, soft and diffused by clouds. I like even those grey crows sitting on tall completely naked black trees. I remembered the autumn smell of fallen leaves from my childhood and was able to feel it again. I have a weird feeling like I’ve entered an illustration to a fairy tale about nature and creatures that live in woods. This inspires me a lot, if I only had some more time to create!
Марго исполнилось 7 месяцев!
Marge turned 7 months old last week. Just some quick facts about her.
We call her a bun at home.
Fall is already on it`s halfway here in Latvia. Thanks to a few sunny days kids had a time of their lives playing with leaves.
Настенька и кружка горячего чая
The next day after this we had an opportunity to visit the playground again. I kept in mind that the last time we were there I had a strong desire to have some hot tea, so I took with me a thermos.
Нашей малыше пол годика!
Guess who’s here six-months old? Hooray for our little baby-girl Marge!
Raverly и воркшоп по фотографии
Last friday was the Raverly day for me. As I found there a nice pattern to knit a cardigan for Marge, I decided that it’s time to acknowledge and get accustomed to this huge resource. I spent a few hours organising my stash there, adding my newly bought skeins and starting a new project. And it really finally kicked me in! I was absolutely delighted by the yarn database that knows even the yarns I bought in a local shop here in Riga. Moreover, I got a nice side effect from this — my knowledge base about yarns grew a lot as a result. Now I know what does ply number mean and how to measure wpi (wraps per inch). Also I’ve become a bit more competent in yarn weights and it’s all in one day! It’s a really cool place for knitters, crocheters and other yarn crafts lovers.
