Turn On Your Brain

My current read (you know, a little fun summer reading!) is Pathways to the Common Core by Lucy Calkins.

I’m pretty sure my entire philosophy on education, and life in general, can be summed up by the following quote toward the very beginning of the book:

“You need to understand something, boy.  The world you see outside of you is a reflection of what you have inside of you.  If you are one of those people who only sees problems and darkness and despair, then that is all there is ever going to be for you.  But if you are one of those people who sees hope, opportunity, and love, then you can make a difference.” (Calkins, 2012)

If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you certainly know on which side of that token I tend to fall.

‘Nuff said.

So my sewing machine has to be fixed, because for some reason, it doesnt work properly.

Tomorrow I will give it to my aunt, she will fix it and hopefully I will be able to start sewing

again! Currently I am looking for Outfits that I want to duplicate. What do you think about this look:


I have always wanted to sew a pink high-waist skirt. I think I will look for a similar bright pink fabric (is that what you say to it? or do you use the word cloth for it? I am german so I dont know how you call the stuff that you sew clothes with 😀 ) . So this is my first idea. This next look is also really pretty:


A dress with an open back like that? I dont know what you would rather want to see…
Maybe I will do both looks…

Acorn in the Kitchen

I am seriously back into running and I am craving for sweets the whole day. So back into the cakes!

This cake comes from south Asia, common in Malaysia and Indonesia.The texture has something special, let’s say is spongy-jelly. A lovely toasty-caramel taste and the ant’s nest  look will do the rest. A lovely cake.

Enjoy it with a good coffee!

Music by Lhasa de Sela:  De Cara a la Pared, a beautiful song.
