Ponytail

Standard

It’s week-end time,

It’s ponytail time,

The time of a tale.
No particular tale.

Just my humble tale.
The tale of a rebel kid

With friends who  would outbid

The life’s temblors with ease.

An ease, which keeps inspiring

The love of life and beauty

With all its Tutti Frutti 🙂

Little Richard “Tutti Frutti” – all fruits, in Italian. Enjoy!

 

Thank you, Denmark,

Standard

for Billund.

Thank you, Billund, for Lego. Or is it the other way around? Billund is considered a company town. It was established and developed around Lego.

Construction site of the new Lego House, Billund, Denmark.


Thank you, Legoland, for transforming me into a ninja, indian canoe rider, Indiana Jones and Egyptian temple discoverer, pirate water canon shooter, dragon rider, firefighter, Atlantis discoverer & gold miner, all in one day. It was soooooo much fun! If you are looking for this kind of fun, Legoland in Billund is a destination to consider. By the way, there seemed to be more adults than kids there. I wonder why ? 🙂
Thank you, Denmark, for reminding us that nature is the best playground.
And that the best setting for sculptures is the nature. Green makes a perfect moving frame. Ants and butterflies also want to admire art.

Balancing Act, by Jens Galschiot, Sculptures Park, Billund, Denmark.


So far, Denmark is my nr 1 child friendly destination: kids authoring sculptures, kids menus for half the price, child friendly hotel facilities, taxi drivers opening the door to kids first, and many many more only as first impressions. If interested, there are 100 destinations for vacations with children (not that i would imagine it any other way).

We admired Billund’s community center open for all big and small, locals and tourists.

Denmark also gets my nr. 1 for universally polite service. And the place where you can have Napoleon’s Hat with your coffee, without offending anyone’s feelings ( 😉 to my French friends).  It was also in Denmark that i learned that microns do not belong to cosmic science. They also tell you important things about chocolate.   This brief visit  made us want to be returning for more sweet memories to collect.

Par-ent: enter by

Par-ent: enter by

– Thank  you, mom, for the things you bought me today!

– with pleasure, sweetheart. I would like us to be grateful also for today’s experiences we lived together.

– Thank you, for giving birth to me.

– You brought yourself forth, sweetheart.

By my experience, it is the child who decides when and how she will (be) born. I also believe we choose our parents for an experience or lesson we need. Parents are only a door into the physical universe. Nothing more. Nothing less. The word “Par-ent” sounds to me as meaning entering the world par/throug…  .
As a baby, whenever a new sound, smell, thing, person would enter her life she would seek my eyes and look into them to see if it’s safe. To see whether the door shall be opened or closed. The expression on my face would give her clues to understand.

I thank my child for choosing me to be her mom and ask her to help me to be a mother she needs. My motherhood needs are irrelevant. This is her life. Her experience. I hope and try just not to spoil it too much.

Happy par-enting to all!

My vegan pancakes

Standard

I am a certified baker. By my kid. 

I love to improvise. Food ingredients have no escape. I would certify myself as an impro-baker. 


A dear friend of mine, looking at my recent pics, inspired this post. Et Voila, Nadiusa! 

So here are my improvised vegan pancakes:

2 Ts flax with 5-6 Ts water. Leave it  to combine for 10-15 min. It will be the “egg” in this recipe. 

Add 100 ml almond milk and mix well. Add 100 ml apple sauce, 2 Ts oil of choice, 1 Ts agave syrup (or a sweetener of your choice).   Mix well. Add 1 -1,5 cup flour you prefer. I usually do a combination between almond, rice, oatmeal. A bit of baking powder and salt.

Add a lot of love.   

A heated pan will do the rest. 

Bon app/enjoy!
