We’ve been having temperatures below -10°C for a week now and I’m a bit worried about the mints and strawberries and other plants on my balcony.
On the other hand, the weather has provided some stunning sunrises.

I get up early at the weekend as well (as in “way before sunrise”-early) to do some research and work (more on that very soon!) and I love to watch the sky and the room grow light and the colors changing.

My seeds have arrived this week and I can’t wait to get some started! I brought in some mint cuttings during christmas and surprisingly it’s thriving inside, having grown from bare root and two leaves to this:

Which means that I’ll have mint this year even if the outdoor plants don’t make it. This is a peppermint from the south of Italy, which a friend gave me and which smells heavenly in summer, so I would have hated to lose it.

      Thanks Ana! I feel quite guilty that I haven’t posted pictures of our apartment yet, but after the rush of moving the “finishing” touches are taking forever 😉

    This light is very soft..very nice!
    I thing that mint is very strong, if you want to have it stronger you should cut it quite a lot! It’s scary but it works!

    I’m studying for being a teacher for little kids (from 3 to 6 years old), I’ve studied psychology and now I work in a secondary school as an educational psychologist. I love my work, but maybe some day I will feel like changing the teenagers for the little ones 😉

    And yes now sewing time!!
    Have a nice week!

      Thanks for the mint tips, I’ll be sure to try that out in summer. I actually studied psychology too! I work in Human Resources (recruiting and marketing) though 🙂
      Have a great time sewing, you’ll love making the skirt!
