On the 10th of August we welcomed a new member to our family: a little black domestic cat lady. After almost going with Lana’s suggestion and naming her Evelina we eventually named her Alma. I’ve always liked the name and it means “soul” or “spirit” in Spanish, which I think is nice.
After having dreamt of a garden for years I still quite can’t believe we have one now. And that we have a garden with enough space to grow pretty much whatever we want! So lucky. I want to document our first gardening season, so I took some photos of our accomplishments (with my new camera of course.)
When I was younger I didn’t care much what fabric my clothes and other textiles were, and I never checked what fabric a piece of clothing was before I bought it. Now it’s usually the first thing I check and if the material of a garment or textile doesn’t feel nice I simply won’t buy it. I also want to favour more sustainable and natural fabrics, both because I like them better and because it’s better for the environment.
Christmas 2019 is done and dusted, and as usual it makes me feel a bit blue. You look forward to and prepare for something for so long and then suddenly it’s over in just one day. But I can comfort myself with that it was a good one; the first Christmas in our new house – with Matthew’s parents here too.
