Alpaca, walks and Leek sprouts

We've been going on more walks lately. The weather is sunnier and the doctor told me that walking helps with headaches. Which I've been having a lot unfortunately. But the good thing is that we can go to the park and can see the Alpaca's....

Simple potatoecakes

Our weekend has been a hectic and emotional one. My dad got ill and had to go to hospital. We are now back together again at PaleRose Cottage, but still don't know what it was exactly. Feeling anything but secure that this will not happen again or worse. I kept daily chores and  mealtines simple...

Oats and Eggs

Here at Pale Rose we've tried a "new" thing, well new to us. We made overnight oats, with berries from the freezer. In some empty jamjars, looking lovely I think...

Decorating for Spring

Pale Rose cottage has been a hive of activity, well sort of. The sun has (occasionally) shone through our windows and Spring has arrived last week oh joy. Mom has been busy knitting and look at this, three beautiful ducks have been added to our nature table...

Bagels and Carrot juice

Baking is one of my favorite things to do & so I put on my apron and grabbed my (relatively) new bagel cookbook this week. Time to bake some bagels here in Pale Rose's kitchen...

Warm Spot

I bought some new clothes and when you're going to wear something new, you want to look your best. So out came the ironingboard & everything new became wrinklefree. I put away the iron and turned my back to the board...

Chutney and Tea

We have been busy in the kitchen of Pale Rose cottage. Cooking "ordinairy" meals & also trying out a few new recipes. Something we all love!! Mom had found a recipe to make your own Pear Chutney & we tried it out this week....

Teddies and thyme

When my Dad came home after a lovely day at the stamp collectors club, he had some cold shivvers down his back and a headache. It became a brief illness spel for him & he had to spend some time in bed...

Bulb children on our nature table

Oranges & a Favorite shot

We had lots of rain, and wind this week. Secretly I hoped that it would mean that the carnaval parade might not come by our home this weekend. Our cat is always so afraid of the loud music and strange people in costumes. But it probably will go ahead as usual this time of year. My foot got wrapped up once more, for another week. So I find myself knitting and sitting a lot ...

Valentine, my Foot

It's been a couple of days since Valentinesday, which is never a favorite of mine. Lend the oppertunity to send my sister a card though. She liked the card she saud :D This one above, don't you just love old movies?! I do....

Rootchildren and Raspberry pudding

Today we had a slow morning. Thinking back to the visit from my sister and her boyfriend, to celebrate dad's birthday. He got some lovely food items & a new Hercule Poirot inspired book to read. A card and Bosche Bollen to have with our tea. There was so much news to share and mom had made a lovely pudding...

Carrot cakes and More

Mom and me had a rough couple of days in which headaches where almost constant. But despite being unwell we also had some lovely moments together at Pale Rose cottage. We baked a new cake, a carrot cake with no sugar in it, just a little honey to sweeten it...

Waldorf corner & Mug cakes


A small corner of our wooden cabinet has been transformed. With a brown cotton material, a piece of wood and a vase with cherryblossom. Cheerfully occupied with some Waldorf bulb children. They make our cottage almost ready for the upcoming Spring...

Savoury cake & Sheep

We've been baking a lot the last few days. I had collected so many tasty sounding recipes & we indulged in making a few. Like this savoury Goatscheese Cake, with walnuts and thyme....

Polenta pancakes & Cold feet

Another new recipe we tried this week, a lovely plate of Polenta Pancakes with Bramble sauce. We made them for lunch and all enjoyed them immensly. A bit tricky to flip them over but in the end we got the hang of it. Don't they look lovely and homey. No two where the same and I rather liked there rustic shapes :) It felt lovely getting something new and warm to eat. When we woke up today the world around our cottage had turned white, snow beautiful...

Pizza's and Paintreatment

Lots happened since my last post. No, I didn't set myself on fire that was hopefully a one off ;)
I also had a lot of headaches for which I go to the pain clinic at the hospital. The bad days prefented me from writing anything new.

Anything but Uneventfull

Our Charlotte had a blast this week, playing with a large cardboard box. She hopped in and out again, hiding from us and clearly wanting to play :) Are cats wonderful or what?!!! She wasn't the only one having fun with it. With so much zen time at Pale Rose you'd never guessed what also happened...
