ze zahradky - from the garden

Vcera,kdyz po dlouhe dobe zase vykouklo slunicko,jsem honem utikala na zahradku otrhat fazole,nejen k okamzite spotrebe ale take na zavarovani.Je jich letos pozehnane a stale jeste kvetou. Pri te prilezitosti jsem take "obrala" kericky maty.Cokoladova a pomerancova jsou me letosni novinky.Cokoladova mata a levandulove kvitky mam vyzkousene,je to vyborna kombinace na caj. Take petrzelka dostala novy sestrih. Rozmixuji s troskou vody,dam do misticek na led,doleji vodou a nacham zmrazit.Potom jen vyklopim a v plastikovem mrazicim pytliku skladuji v mrazaku celou zimu. Na radu prisla take dobromysl obecná neboli oregano.Tu susim ale take z ni pripravuji olej,ktery je velmi lecivy.V kapkach pouzivam hlavne pri nachlazeni.
When the sun came out yesterday, after a along time I went to the garden to harvest beans not just for eating but for pickling too. They are very abundant this year and still flowering. I also cut some mint to dry. This year I tried a few new varieties-chocolate and pineapple. The chocolate one mixed with lavender flower is a nice tea blend. Also the parsley got a new "haircut". I put it in the blender and then use ice cube trays to freeze it. I keep the cubes in Ziploc bags in the freezer,that way I have it handy all winter. Last but not least I cut a bunch of oregano to dry and make a batch of oil of oregano. There are many recipes on the web.

Jantar - Amber

Vzdycky me pritahoval a fascinoval Jantar. Moc jsem si prala vlastnit nejaky jantarovy sperk. Neil me minuly tyden prekvapil a me prani se naplnilo. Dostala jsem tento nahrdelnik a par dalsich jantarovych kamenu z kterych budou nausnice a dalsi jantarovy privesek.Tmavy kousek je jantar ktery neni jeste opracovan,je na povrchu tmave zeleny ale kdyz se podivate proti svetlu krasne prosvita jeho klasicka zlatava barva,ktera se pod povrchem skryva.

I've always been drawn to and fascinated by Amber. I wished to have a piece of Amber jewelry. Neil surprised me last week and my wish was fulfill. I received this necklace and few other amber pieces that are going to be use for earnings and another necklace. The dark piece is raw amber,dark green on the surface but if you look against the light you can see the classic lovely golden color that is under the surface.

Amber
Usually thought of as a golden yellow colour but can also be found in shades of milky white, red-orange, grey, black and very rarely violet. Amber is found mainly in the baltic Sea, and is 40 to 55 million years old. Amber is superior in quality to any other resins. Nicknames the 'happy stone' because it is said that amber helps with depression, etc.
Asian cultures regard amber as the 'soul of the tiger'. Amber comes from trees and therefore it shares many spiritual qualities similar to that of a tree. For example; trees are beings whose roots bury deep into the earth, and whose tops reach to the sky. This is like a bridge between heaven and earth; the spiritual and the physical. Sap is the lifeblood of the tree, that carries and transmits its energy.
Thus: amber is seen to be the gemstone that can be used to ground spiritual energies into the physical body. This also works the opposite way round; if you are not feeling enough 'earth' energy (grounded) - amber can help you achieve this connection to the physical plane.

Quilt pro Makeefa - Quilt for Makeef

Verte, neverte ale i prez vsechen ten blazinec okolo domu se mi dnes podarilo vytahnout sici stroj and dodelat tenhle quilt. Dcera Tereza ho nastrihala a rucne vysila oci a zobacky. Od te doby byl u mne doma a nekolik mesicu cekal na dokonceni. Dost se u nas ochladilo a tak by ho rada mela hotovy aby ho mohla dat Makeefovi do postylky.Takze jsem ho dnes dokoncila - tedy skoro! Jeste z nej musim udelat povlak (rozstriham velkou perinu na velikost jakou potrebuji) a POTOM to bude hotove :)) Myslim, ze se ji moc povedl a jsem rada, ze ma kreativitu v krvi :)))




Believe it or not but today with all the craziness happening around the house I managed to pull out my sewing machine and finish this quilt. My daughter Tereza cut all the pieces  and hand stitched the eyes and beaks. And then it sat in my house for months waiting to be machine stitch.Well the weather is getting colder and she would like to use it for Maks crib. So today I finished it - almost! I still have to turn it into duvet cover ( I am going to cut down duvet to the size) and THEN it will be done :)) I think that it looks adorable.I am very happy that she has the creative "bug" in her blood :)))
