We haven’t had that blue a sky in weeks ! Can’t stop staring.
This monday, some of my favourites from MAV and SCB’s Sundays…
Yesterday at work I was watching the window-washer wash the window, and I felt like I was in a carwash, and for a very little while I couldn’t see the outside for it was all covered in white soap. It was awesome. In the ten seconds when I was cut our from the world, I thought of a cookie recipe I have that would be good with cherries, orange zest and cardamom. I do put cardamom in...
A ray of light !! Oh wait it’s gone. Nope… it’s back !!!!! And gone again. Running around my apartment trying to catch any sign of actual light. Other than that, it’s cloudy and I’m working, and trying not to think about how desperatly I need to wash my hands ever since I realized the water is off in the building for a little while today.
Fresh spring food is all over the internet… Spring pasta salad at The Jewels of New York Tortilla with prosciutto and pesto at Sweet Paul Spring polenta at My New Roots Rhubarb mojito at Not Without Salt
Love getting nice mail.
It rained almost constantly today, the heat is back on, I ate my dinner wrapped in a blanket. Makes me wanna eat crepes and drink cider by the sea until spring finds its way back. These pictures agree. Salted caramel at A Merry Mishap The pacific coast by Christine Spring light by Jenna
It was a really good weekend. And unexpectedly sunny. Paris is all cloudy with rain planned everyday for the week. What is this, Vancouver ?? Oh well. Here are some pictures of pretty cool places by photographer Petra Bindel (via here)
I don’t have a toaster so I toast my bread in the oven. Most times I’m reminded of it by the burning smell. Leaving to the country for the weekend tonight ! I took my saturday off to celebrate two close friends who conveniently happen to share the same birthday, and well, almost the same last name. I’m talking about these two. It’s sort of cold and rainy here...

Sunday brunch is always good. + I love these last three pictures, taken by Camille I think… Why do I even bother getting things in focus ??
I bought two of these breakfast sets a few years ago, but honestly I rarely ever use them. This morning was their time.
With the new season, new kinds of flowers.
Pentax shots from a few weeks ago. The sun showed up again this morning… finally !!
New stuff on my website. I hadn’t drawn or painted anything I liked in a long time, so lately I’ve been working on that a little.
I hadn’t opened my Coxcodex 1 book by Paul Cox in a while. It’s genius. It’s so rich and beautiful and inspiring. Still sick, but I baked myself a batch of salty lemon and almond cookies (yes yes, they work as well as tiger’s balm) and did a little painting.
Daniel, by Elton John. Oh, Elton !
So far, spent my long weekend sick at home. Grilled cheese (at Sprouted Kitchen) is what I want !
Love these pictures of my brother with our cousin’s daughter Simone
I got so inspired by these people naturally dyeing eggs all over the internet, like Jenna and Stephanie and Jen ! I just had to make mine today…. They weren’t all successful and I was in a bit of a hurry so I couldn’t let them soak overnight, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and I will definitely experiment more next year ! You can check out my...
