this simple recipe by Tessa Kiros to begin with. It is low sugar and low fat. When you leave out the berries, you can add other ingredients you like or happen to have in your cupboard. We love this fresh cake, but not all visitors appreciate it, because it's less sweet than you would expect from a cake. You'll have to try to know.
before. Although sewing them is pretty boring, it feels very good to do so. First, it's sustainable, we don't need to buy new pillow cases for a while. Two, they look pretty good on our bed. And three, who doesn't like to sleep on a pillow case with lovely memories?
guided search, which was nice, because we got several tips on what to look for. Here our best find: very, very old fossilised coral (earlier than dinosaurs, to put it in perspective). But this was nothing compared to the huge mammoth tooth one boy found! You can see it here.

Oseberg ship (834 AD) in the Viking ship museum in Oslo was used to burry two women. Important women, because they were buried with a lot of grave gifts. Inter alia a set of bone tablets to weave traditional bands. Even with a band in progress. I was inspired to try this ancient technique myself. Found a secondhand set of cardboard weaving cards, dito book with instructions and above you'll find my very first try. As you can see I'm not a experienced weaver at all, because the work is uneven in all directions. But the result can be a high quality thick band. It's possible to make pretty complex patterns, threading and turning the cards in different directions. I'll just have to practise a bit more.
Natuurmonumenten, we couldn't foresee that we would be able to do this walk short sleeved and with the sun in our face. What a wonderful day we've got yesterday! We kept a list of the different mushrooms we came across. 26 types! And the season has not even started fully yet (not enough rain). It was a fun and instructive day with grandma and granddad (thanks for the pictures L.).
the Folk Museum in Oslo. I just love the sober colours and the detailed decorations. If I just had less stuff, no kids and a quieter mind, I would want my house to look like this.
