This and that

I have not sleep enough because I have to finish some bolsters for yoga, I should have done it earlier, but this is the kind of work I don't enjoy much, to repeat and repeat like a sushi robot.

Anyway, I didn't have much on the house to make lunch today. Mu mom gave me her juice extractor so I had some carrot pulp and I wanted to use it. So I mix it with eggs little potatoes, zuchini, grated cheese, rosemary, oregano and salt in a oven glass container.
In a pan I cook a little some chopped onion, garlic and peppers on olive oil and add that too.


And the the I cook it in the oven for 20-30 minutes, it end up very well.

And, since I already had the oven hot I made some brownies with almond pulp left form the other day's milk.


It was delicious.

It's been very hot and sunny around here these days, so I look like I went to the beach.

I continue to work also on the Art Wall on which all the order of my living room depends, but it's a long project.
What about you?, what have you been doing?


Painful conversations

-Mom, I was thinking that when we will go to Mexico, we could go visit my dad and ask him to be my father, to really really try? Don't you think it's a great idea?

-Yes, sweet love, it is.


Collecting seeds from what you eat

The other I was ask on my technique to collect the seed of what we eat to grow them later.

Recolección de semillas

It's almost embarrassing to share it, because it's quite simple, I just wash them and let them to dry in a plate.


I collect almos everything, I thing that we may find a use for them even when we were not able to grow them.

And sometimes I just plant the fresh pulp and it works.

Place to go :: Librería Intenacional de Tibás

I found this place the other day.

Cafetería Librería Internacional Tibás

The Librería Internacional de Tibás, from outside it does not look particulary interesting. But inside it has a coffe shop and a pretty garden, so I thought it would be a good place for mamas with infants to hang.

They also have beautiful puzzles, such as this one.

A new place

Yesterday I was able to get a new bookshelf, which help a lot to organize the books that were all piled in the other two. The living room looks much better although there is still books on boxes.

I trade this beautiful Indian recycled plastic rug, and I'm so happy.

Nuevo espacio

We are slowly moving to get a pretty and peaceful home, for now Itzcóatl nejoy to see his books, read them to himself (by memory) or imagine with them. I hope to find balance in the whole house soon, to be comfortable.

He even found a moment to write on his new place.



Gifts and sewing

Bolso de regalo

Sometimes I see a fabric and I think, this is so perfect for..., and this is what happened with this great Acrobats fabric.
Bolsa de regalo

It's just a simple messenger bag for an ex-teacher from high school who end up being the parthner of one of my closest friends.

 Títere de regalo

The other day we were going to a birthday party for a 5 year old to be girl, friend of Itzcóatl. I always try to give soething handmade but this time I wanted to include my son, so I asked what he would like to do, and after decide we were making a puppet he choose a Jaguar, so I cut the fabric and we made the dots painting on it whit our fingers, then I sew it, made a little purse, write a postcard (from boygirlparty) and we were done. She liked, but her baby sister liked even better, and she kept it on her hand even while nursing, it was really cute.
