Halloween Nails

At Monday it's Halloween, so I've made Halloween nails:

I gave myself Opi's Halloween set with a glow-in-the-dark light green polish, Zom-body to Love (I love Opi's polish names) and a black crack polish. I really like the idea of a glow-in-the-dark polish, but at daytime it is just a snot green colour. You can see it glow-in-the-dark at this link.

I wanted Konad's Halloween disc, I have the Christmas disc (and no, it does not play neither Last Christmas nor Rocking Around the Christmas Tree) and it is so nice, but the Halloween disc (M13) is disappointing, so I had to invest in M28 on which there is a nice spider.

At my thumb and little finger I have the glow-in-the-dark with the black crack polish over, at my ring finger are drops of blood from M13, at my middle finger I have a pumpkin from M13 and at my index finger I have spiders from M28.

Happy Halloween to all of you. :)

Baking Recipes

I love to bake, but I don’t do it very often. Either I haven’t time, nor energy or both at the same time. Usually we also agree that it is not good for us, since we always have to drop a few kilos, sigh. But although I decorated for Halloween last Sunday, I already look so much forward to Christmas. In December it is legal to decorate all over the house, eat lovely dinners and surround you with family and good friends – but it is also BAKING TIME! And I have just invested approx. 3 dollars in this great recipe book (unfortunately only in Danish):
Yes, only 3 dollars, for a nice hardback book, filled with lovely photos and classic as well as new recipes. And what can you get for 3 dollars – almost nothing. Here are some references:
I have the complete series of baking books, it was a colleague who recommended them to me and gave me my first. What I especially like is the concept “one dough – 7 cookies” or “one dough – 3 breads, buns and Danish”, you get the picture. Genius!

I know it’s not fair recommending a Danish baking book, and I do hope you have something like it abroad.

Squirrel Restaurant

I love recycling! I love finding a treasure in the second-hand shops, at the flea markets ... and in the bi-weekly refuse heaps. A couple of weeks ago I walked my five kilometres and looked at the heaps and what did I see? A squirrel restaurant:
I have wanted one for long, because I have many squirrels in my garden, and they are so cosy. But a squirrel restaurant is quite expensive, so having walked my tour I had to go back and get it. And it is perfect, I just have to fill it with goodies and hang it up in a tree. It is incredible what people discards!

The Lunch Pack That Grew!

Son has got an apprenticeship – life is wonderful! He is not the academic type, but he doesn’t have technical flair like his father either. He has now got an apprenticeship as a landscape gardener and he LOVES it! At the beginning he didn’t bring any lunch with him, like when he went to school. He has always hated making a lunch pack. Well, being a landscape gardener is hard physical work, so not before long son realized it was a good idea to bring some lunch with him. And the lunch pack grew and grew and grew:
A happy mouse and his lunch pack

What’s in the bag, you ask:
  • 5-6 sandwiches made of coarse bread
  • approx. a pound of carrots
  • two bananas
  • a handful of snack peppers
  • 1 can of tuna
  • 1 corn-bar (healthy candy for desert)
  • 2 mini juice cartons (those that comes with a straw)
And he eats it all – plus breakfast and a tremendous plateful of dinner. Perhaps it is time to make him pay for his keep!? :)
