Misc

Hello to all,

Thanks for visiting my blog, it always make my week!
It has been a rather quiet week as far as textile is concerned. I'm a bit overloaded with work and a bit lazy when I come home. Besides, I decided this week was a "me" week, with an appointment for a manicure, another with the hair dresser. And since I was getting obsessed with my work, I have decided to go and see a movie once a week, whatever they are playing, just to change my mind.
This week, I went to see Holy Rollers. In French "Jewish Connection" (yes, the French title is in English), certainly in relation with "French Connection" :-). Amazing to see that a loving and caring family, a good education are not enough to keep a young man in the right path.
Yesterday, the weather was nice, blue sky and mild temperatures, ideal to go on with gardening. I'm still into cleaning, it is a bit boring and tiring, but I know I'll be glad to have done it. And it starts to show. I even found a small almond tree I did not plant, that was developing under the wicked rose. It is blooming right now, as if it was happy I have freed him from the wicked rose. And look at the dwarf jonquils.

Sunday is the day when I do most of the cooking for the week. I'm a weight watcher and love my food. So I try to make it fun and keep it light. My dessert for today will be a pineapple tatin, made from fresh pineapple, dropped in sugar/butter caramel, and filo dough. They look good, don't they? Let's hope they taste the same.

I wish you all a good week take care!

It sounds like you have your life and your garden (almost) under control. The little jonquils are sweet. That dessert looks absolutely delightful.

The desserts look really good! I love desserts but I've to watch my diet too. When I make my desserts, I usually cut down the sugar, LOL!
