Sunshine the best medicine for us

Hi all,
How are you?

I'm getting better, last weekend I got a bad bad stumach flue. Ow my, what was I sick..
Lost a lot of weight again, slowly getting back on track, and the lovely sunshine is helping a lot.

* * * 

Last week the kids had vacation, we had lovely weather so could do a lot of fun things.
I made a little collage for you 
As you can see all the sunshine we had..
There where also day's with rain, but we found enough activities to do, like painting, crafting, cooking. Not far from here one morning was organished that the kids could play, in a gymschool, what a fun they had.
For the cooking pieces!
 our favorite.... Carrot cake
and look-pie.. but I almost the only one with Kira who likes it.. hihi

* * * 

As it was such great weather, it was really time to clean out the mess in the garden front and back.
And plant some Spring flowers
We also went gardenstore and bought some new plants.. 
See both kiddos lying on the hammock, and what about the big fish??
See the succulent plant in the middle? so funny the colors on it
Kids both wanted to buy something too.
Noah choose a blue Hydrangea, Kira's plant is inside ( on the next collage to see).
I also put Noah greenhouse in his place, he got it for his birthday last year, as you can see we planted some seeds, it what he likes so much.
They are in our back window, already getting out of there seeds.
next time I will take a picture, every day new seeds come out.. so fun to watch.

But also inside we put it all in Spring style
Kira's plant.. a pink one.. lol.. 
she wanted it on her kitchen in the living, so there it is.
2 days later, two of those pic;s looked like this
isn't this giving you a smile??
I need to craft something for on that bench, but it will get there!

* * *

I also still have the pictures off the orchid plant in my living

These are already dead,. I was just in time with my picture.
I'm still so in love with these.. hope next years it will give me more flowers, I will talk to it every day

* * * 

I totally forgot to take a pic of my Soda stitch, that's for the next post.
But I do crochet a big big Lalylala..
And big means BIG
After to finished above piece, I needed to order new yarn, Ordered 5 more yarn.
Still not enough, but it's a doll.
It needs to be a bunny, the free MOD  Rita the Rabbit from the lalylala serie, you can find on her site
In a while when I order yarn, I will order 2 more for this bunny... but first I have so many other projects.. and I like her how she is already.

Talking about my next project.. 

a sneak peak..

Kira is helping me stuffing it, she always helps me with that

I see it's almost midnight.. =)))
Time to go to bed..

Have  a great week.. hope you all will have lovely sun..
Just heard some big big hailstones drop.. ow my what a noise

fijn dat je wat beter voelt. Drukke vakantie hebben jullie gehad. Mooie foto's. Het eten ziet er ook lekker uit. Leuk al die stekjes, echt een beetje lente al. Layla is ook goed gelukt. Ben benieuwd waar je nu mee bezig bent.

Good to know that you are feeling better. You were so busy. Nice to see the activities with your kids and your garden is going to be very colorful :) Here summers have started, the plants will slowly burnout by the time temperature goes beyond 40C from March end.
Your crochet rabbit is very cute :)

Stomach flu is no fun at all. I'm glad you are feeling better now.

I really envy all that good weather and pretty flowers. Still cold here and may snow tomorrow. Your photos are giving me hope that spring can really come!

So sorry to hear you've been ill, Annette! And you've lost a lot of weight??? No--you are already thin enough!! You'll have to make lots of cookies and fatten yourself up again :)

The garden center photos are so nice--looks like the kids had such fun! I love the plantsNoah and Kira chose and I hope they both grow well... Enjoy your warmer weather and sunshine (we are at -7° (-22C) tomorrow and still have a lot of snow :(

Happy end of February--hope March is a good month for you :)
