Yarn Along

I finished my blanket!!!
Joining the squares was a lot of work, but I
 loved this crochet project and am already
 thinking about another one
 (I especially love the color-picking part).

I finished reading "Paris Letters" and am not quite
 sure about which book to choose next. 
There are several books waiting to be read on my
book shelf and  Lawrence Hill's
"Someone knows my name" is
one of them.

Linking up with Yarn Along today.

Doctor Finlay

I watched the last episode yesterday evening.

I enjoyed this series immensely. 

Dr. Finlay, Dr. Cameron, Dr. Niel, Janet...I loved them all.
A step back in time, when life was gentler.

Yarn Along

This week I finished joining the squares, 
crocheted a nice white border around the blanket
 and started weaving in loose ends. 
Hope to be able to show you the final result next week.

I'm currently reading Paris Letters by Janice MacLeod. She quit her job, left everything behind and went to Paris.

A good deal

We like a mango in our daily smoothie.

So when I saw them for half-price in
 the supermarket, I bought 24!

I peeled them, mixed them in the food
 processor and then put them in the freezer
(in jam jars).

And voil√†, 24€ saved!

Yarn Along

Working on square 76!

And reading on my Kindle: 
"The Secret Keeper" by Kate Morton.
I always download one book at a time, 
a book that is just for fun and an easy 
read during all those waiting hours in my car.

We're so happy we took two kittens instead of one!

Our first cat was really aggressive towards other
 cats around the house and in the garden. 
But these two were born in the same litter
 and they really seem to love each other.
