a life handcrafted


It happens to me very often that I start to do something, but than something more interesting creeps up. So it was that day, while I was weeding the flower garden.

I cleaned off the garden from bindweeds. Suddenly Mia began to use them for masquerading herself as a fairy. That looked so beautiful, that I sprinted upstairs and catched my camera. We took many pictures, that was really funny. Unfortunately it was to late for weeding…..what a pity 😉

The last days of the summer holidays are here. The days are shorter and the evenings are colder, best time to make a camp fire. Roasting marshmellows and leavened dough above the fire….with good friends.

I can’t belive it, but 13 years are flown away and now our oldest daughter Naomi has her great day. It’s the graduation day!

I remember, when she was three years old she showed first interest in letters, and after she learnt the alphabet, she aducced herself reading, this was after her fourth birthday.

She was about 12 – 13 when she started writting, and till this time she couldn’t stop with it. With 16 she wrote her first novel, and I really hope she will be able to support themselve by writting. I think that’s her dearest wish.
