Today R. and I bought annual tickets for the zoo Schönbrunn. Very practical, 'cause it's not far from where we live. Again it was a wonderful warm and sunny day. I was really taken by the ant bears and their lovely face with the small mouth and little ears. The one in the picture was actually sleeping but he was blinking at me when I came close. Too cute!
My father-in-law-to-be sent me these catkins which are normally used for easter bouquets, but eastern is quite late this year, so I'm not sure if I will get some more at that time. Anyway, it's nice to have them already! Wish you a wonderful Friday!
Here is a new softie I have sewed. For the little extra I crocheted him a vest (with a blue snail button) and a little sock. It was really fun to make its clothes. (Will add it to my shop soon!)
And finally I have seen some primroses on my walk in the forest today.
Today I took care of the herb kit I got from my friend Susanna as a birthday gift. I also got this tin whereof a peanut plant should grow. I am very curious about that and wonder if it really works. We will see :)
Oh, and the little yellow duck in the background is also from her. It's actually a rubber, but I think it's too good to use it.
I finished my big doily earlier than expected, because it undulates even though I had the pattern from a book. When I looked at the doily in the book again, I saw that it is the same there, but still I am a bit unhappy. Maybe I'll try to flatten it with starch. Anyway, at the moment it is raining night and day and to look at it, makes my day a bit brighter.
It's not that I don't love to eat, but I often have problems to feed myself regularly. Especially when it comes to breakfast, I have to force myself to have one. Most of the time it happens that I am concentrated on other things and suddenly notice late in the afternoon that I had only a coffee or tea. I know that it is not good for the body to skip meals, especially the breakfast, but it happens again and again. Once again I intend to have more breakfasts and this is a good start I think. Don't you think that oranges always look delicious on pictures?
