and so it begins

Prvni snih letosni zimy zacal padat vcera vecer a neprestal az do rana.  Neil sel pred spanim vyvencit  Tess a par vterin po tom , co k nemu pribehla zpatky spadla v miste kde predtim stala  (pod tihou snehu ) velika vetev. Tess se  snad zazrakem nic nestalo. Vetev pristala na mem a Neilove aute, me ma promackly blatnik a Neil ma nekolik "zhmozdenin" na kapote. Z toho radost nemame ale jsme oba moc radi, ze nase milovana cubicka Tess je v poradku.


First snow of this season started to fall last evening and didn't stop till this morning. Neil took Tess out before bed time,  and few seconds after she return to him a big branch fell on the ground where she was standing and landed on our cars.  Mine have two dents on the fender and his little dents all over his hood. We are not happy about that part but we are really grateful that our precious dog is ok.


vetev ( uz odtazena stranou ) ktera pristala mezi auty

this is the branch ( puled off the cars) that was right in the middle



a takhe vypada  muj blatnik

and this is my fender




Dnes uz zase krasne svitilo slunicko  a byl nadherny den.

Today the sun came out again and we had a gorgeous day.





Uz jste nekdy jedli "cipsy" z  Kaderavku? Jestli ne o hodne jste prisli a ja vam je vrele doporucuji  vyzkouset. 
Kaderavek umyjeme, osusime a natrhame na kousky. Nejlepe v mise pokapeme olivovym olejem a osolime hrubou soli.  Promichame, narovname na plech a peceme v troube vyhrate na 120 -150 celsia.. Jsou hotove kdyz prvni konecky zacinaji hnednout. Listy musi zustat zelene, hnede jsou spalene a maji horkou chut,  takze radeji  pecte pomaleji a casto kontrolujte. Napiste mi jak vam chutnali, u nas je v mziku cely plech pric, coz ale vubec nevadi, protoze na rozdil od klasickych chipsu,  tyhle kaderavkove,  jsou  zdrave.


Did you ever have Kale chips?  If not,  you have to try! It is really simple to make them. 

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 250- 300 degrees F . Line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper ( silicon pad ) .
  2. With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with rock salt.
  3. Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 20 minutes.

  I don't even take them off the baking sheet, my family flocks around me when I take them out of the oven and they are gone in no time.

in the making ......

Tvorim,tvorim,tvorim, tak by se daly definovat me dny, ktere  leti rychleji nez bych si prala. Dalsi obchudek me oslovil s navrhem, prodavat me nakrcniky a tak pletu o sto sest...... :)

I am making lots of neck warmers these past days. One local store with two branches is interested in selling them, so I knit and knit and knit...... :)




 Stale me take "vola" kulaty polstarek. Postup jeho  vyroby jsem vam pred nedavnem ukazala tady. Zatim jsem vybrala latky, ktere chci na jeho vyrobu pouzit.

I still want to make the round pillow that I blog about here. For now I selected the fabric I think I'll use to make it.



 Vanocni venecky, koupene v dollarovem kramku, ano vse tam koupite za dollar- tedy musim se opravit, protoze pred par mesici uz to neni $1.00 ale $1.25.  a pochybuji, ze zmeni nazev ochodu, prezto ze je najdete po cele severni americe. V potrebach pro kutilky za polotovar na zdobeni zaplatite kolem $7.00. Takze jsem pro zacatek z venecku otrhala vsechnu dekoraci a  omotala ho reznou latkou. Snad se k jejich dokonceni brzy dostanu.


Christmas wreaths from dollar store that I took apart and started redecorating. I payed $1.25 compere to $7.00 at the craft store.  I used linen fabric but have to put it aside for now till I have more time on hand.





A jak uz jiste vsechny vite, loucim se s vami vetsinou " spetkou  inspirace ".  Vim, ze jsou ted hodne v oblibe obhackovana raminka ale pro ty co hackovat neumi,  nebo nemaji tolik casu, ci trpelivosti,  snadno zvladnou tuto techniku. Co myslite, zkusite si  takove raminko udelat?

As you all probably now by now, I like to leave you with some inspiration. I've seen lots of crochet covered coat hangers, but for you, who don't crochet or have no time nor the patience, you can try this easy and fast project. Do you think you'll give it a try?

Bits and pieces- Stripky


 Dnes vam chci ukazat vanocni podlozku, kterou jsem konecne dodelala a vyfotila.  Vysivani normalne moc nedam ale na tomto jednoduchem zadnim stehu se neda opravdu nic zkazit :) 

Today, I want to show you my finished mug rug. I do not embroider very often but this stitch is simple enough even for me.


Muj novy oboustrany nakrcnik. Mam tuto techniku moc rada, protoze nitky netahneme po zadni strane. Tam vzor prouzkuje a proto muzeme nosit i naruby. Mnoho krasnych nakrcniku muzete videt  na Pinterest.

This is my new double sided cowl that I work on for several evenings. I love this technique, which is like Fair Isle but you don't have the messy string on the wrong side. Instead the pattern makes stripes and that way you can also wear it inside out. You can find more cowls to look at on Pinterest.




Dalsi prirustek do sbirky, tentokrat znacky White, kterym me Neil nedavno prekvapil a udelal velikou radost! Je plne funcni z celou vybavou rozdilnych patek a nastavcu.

Another addition to my collection, this time " White " . Very nice, thoughtful  and unexpected surprise from Neil. It's fully functioning with lots of different attachments.  





 A jeste jeden kousek. ktery pribyl vcera v jidelne, nalezeny v inzerci v kolonce ZDARMA!
Barvou sice uplne neladi spodnimu kusu ktery jsem pred vice nez deseti lety koupila na aukci starozitneho nabytku ale prozatim to musi vydrzet, nez sezenu vyhovujici spodni cast.


And one more piece, free buffet that we scored yesterday from Craigslist. It doesn't  exactly match the bottom piece that I purchased more then 10 years ago at some antique action but it will do for now.



Zitra je 11.11.11, u nas svatek Valecnych Veteranu. Hezky si ten "jednickovy" den uzijte.........

Tomorrow is 11.11.11.  and Remembrance Day as well so enjoy the special day....
