A beautiful Sunday and a yarn disaster

Hello all!

Summer is here! It's still called spring but since I have sunburn it must be summer already... :-) Let us hope the beautiful weather stays and it won't get cold again this summer (and let us hope I buy sunscreen soon).

Today started with voting. As most of your probably know, the elections for the European Parliament are going on until this evening. Some countries already voted and today it's Germanys turn. I hope a lot of people vote but I have a bad feeling. So many people don't get the significance of elections - makes me cry! I never missed an election in all my life and I will try never to do so. 

After the whole voting thing we took a walk and had coffee at a nearby farmer's café. So good! The bees and bumblebees certainly liked the weather (and flowers too). It was hard to get them onto a photo because they just jump from flower to flower in a split second! I reckon they were a bit high on pollen.

My capsicum is growing! I am so excited!! :-) I wonder if it will become a red or a green one...

Rest of the day was spent blissfully on the balcony with  fresh bread and eggplant dip (see this post for the recipes). Oh and yarn of course. Lots of yarn. I am working on a corner to corner blanket for a friend who will have a baby this fall. 

Disaster struck very close to the end of the blanket. Only two rows to finish and... no more yarn! Oh no! This is some yarn I ordered online some month ago and one can buy it in 500 gram packs only. Well, I don't need 500 grams! I need about 10 grams. Sigh! I contacted the seller to see if they could sell me one 100 gram ball. Fingers crossed. 

How did you spend your sunday?

Take care


  1. Beautiful photos (EVEN THOUGH there are no Harry Potter books in them)...! :-P

  2. P.S. I should practice my spelling.

  3. I spent my Sunday having brunch on the balcony in the sun, napping and crocheting :) It was pretty good!

  4. I am so glad to read that you are passionate about elections, as am I! It is our chance to have our say - a privilege that so many people in the world do not have. I have my own quiet celebration every election day - my friends think I am weird. Tell me I am not.
