Nekaj drobtinic / Few moments

Ne bom se spraševala, kam je šel januar. Prepričana sem, da je skrit nekje med klobčiči volne in plenicami, morda pod kupom risbic ali kupom knjig. Tiho opazuje svoje delo, ki ga je opravil.
Domače naloge v zvezkih gospodične G, risbice gospodične N, vse bolj radovedne očke Malega B, pecivo na mizi, skoraj končano kvačkano odejico... in ponoči bo na krilih ledenega vetra odjadral od nas.
Zamenjal ga bo veseli februar.  
Zakaj veseli? 
Zaradi festivala Bobri (za uro in pol stanja v vrsti sem dobila vstopnice, ki sem jih želela - jupi!). 
Zaradi pusta (letos bomo rdeče pikčasti, če mi bo mali B dovolil kakšno urico v šivalnici). 
Ne smem pozabiti kulturnega dne in valentinovega.
In zimskih počitnic.
Morda bo celo zapadel sneg.
Ja, mislim, da je 'veseli' kar prava beseda.



I'm not going to ask where has January went. I'm sure it's hiding somewhere - among yarn, books, drawings or diapers. It's watching  his work - it sure was a busy month. A lot of drawing, homeworks, walking, playing, reading and crocheting.
I'm sure it's tired. It's time for happy February to take it's place.
Why happy?
This is a month of 
- kids festival in Ljubljana (and I managed to get some tickets, yay!)
- school holidays
- mardi gras
- Valentine's day
- and they say it is going to snow!
Yes, 'happy' is a right word.

Pssst


Stopajte čisto tiho...

Be very quiet...

... dojenček spi...
... baby sleeps...


...in zelo plašne dolgorepke so prišle na malico.
... and very shy long-tailed tits come to feast.



A ni to najbolj srčkan pogled kadarkoli?
Isn't this the cutest face ever?


Rada imam svojo dopoldansko urico 'mojega' časa.
Urico branja, kvačkanja, risanja in mrmranja pesmice Malemu B.

I love my morning 'me' hour.
Hour of reading, crocheting, sketching or singing to Little B.

Jutro na vrtu / Morning in the garden


Mali B obožuje svežino na svojem nosku. Zato tudi najraje spi zunaj. Zavit v toplo volneno odejo leži na ovčji koži v vozičku in spi. Sončni žarki u poljubljajo lica in mali spi, spi, spi. 
Kadar mi ni do sprehoda, ostaneva na vrtu. Sedim poleg njega in kvačkam :o)
Little B loves fresh air. Tucked up in warm blanket naps in his trolley. Sun is kissing his cheeks and he smiles in his sleep.
Sometimes we go for a walk, but sometimes we stay in the garden.
I'm sitting beside him with a crochet hook in my hand.

Likovni pouk / Art Class


Petkov trenutek potrebuje še nekaj besed in medtem, ko sta Mali B in Gospodična N na sprehodu, imam čas, da jih napišem. 

Gospodična G, kot prava mala šolarka, piše vsak dan domače naloge.  Če jih ne dobi v šoli,ji dam nalogo jaz (ali pa babi ali nona). Kot je rekla Gospodična G. Ni lahko biti učenec, če imaš doma tri učiteljice.
Po nalogi pa sledi likovni pouk. Kajti likovni pouk je tista iskrica, ki pomaga, da je naloga hitreje in tudi bolj z veseljem narejena.
*
Friday's moment needs some words. You see, Miss G is a good pupil and she is writing homework in the afternoon. Homework is not always fun, but art class is fun. And art class follows homework. Happy girl, happy mama. 
Fun.



Pa naj bosta ti dve sliki tudi najin prispevek k petkovi ilustraciji. 
Kajti sloni v cirkusu se najbolj bojijo, da bi se jim žoga odvrtela izpod nog.


And those two drawing are also our contribution to Illustration Friday.
'Cause elephants are most afraid that a ball would twirl away under their feet.

Ta trenutek / This moment

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Skrivnosti / Secrets


Gospodična G se je danes odpravila na sprehod brez najmanjše besedice upiranja. 
Imela je načrt. 
Imela je željo.
Po nekaj korakih me je prijela za roko in rekla, da hoče, da greva sedaj sami naprej, ostali pa naj gredo posebej, v drugo smer. 
Želela se je pogovarjati. 
Deliti skrivnosti.
Biti sama z menoj.
Poslušati o tem, kako je bilo, ko sem bila toliko stara kot je sedaj ona.

Bilo je čudovito.


*

Miss G went out for a walk without a protest. Usually she prefers to stay inside and it is always a challenge to get her out. But not today.
Because today she had a plan.
She wanted to talk to me.
In private.
Just her and me.
She wanted to know how it was when I was her age.
She wanted to tell me her secrets.
And she wanted to hear my secrets.

It was magical.

Okrogla preproga / Doily rug


Pozdravljeni!
Hvala vsem za prelepe misli na mojo prejšnjo objavo. Tako dorbo denejo, sploh ker se mi zdi, da mi gre zadnje čase vse narobe. Toliko neprijetnosti na kupu, da bom začela verjeti v moč petka trinajstega. Ampak ne, to je dober datum in trinajstica je fina številka. 



Hello my friends!
It's a new week and I hope that the spell of Friday the 13th will disappeare soon. I'm not superstitious, but there were just so many inconveniences this weekend that I had some second thoughts. 
But no, 13 is a good number. It always was in our home.


 Zmagovalka in dobitnica paketka presenečenja je Barbi. Čestitke!


Kar pa vidite na fotkah je nekaj s čimer sem se igrala v teh dneh.  Hotela sem narediti večjo, pa sem se (po pravici povedano) naveličala. Tako imam dovolj niti, da lahko naredim še eno :o)

What you see on photos is something I was playing with these days. I wanted to make bigger, but I (to tell you the truth) got a little weary. Now I have enough yarn to make another one :o)

Jutro / Morning


Dobro jutro, dober dan!
 Cel teden že lovim jutranje trenutke v objektiv. V kopalnici, v gorah, na mizi... To so trenutki, ko dekleti že sedita za mizicama v šoli in vrtcu. Trenutki, ko Mali B spi. Trenutki tišine.

*

Good morning, good day!

I have been collecting moments of my mornings for a week. These are moments of stillness.


 * * * * * *

  In kmalu bo napočil tudi trenutek, ko bo tale paketek odpotoval k eni izmed vas. Pustite komentar na to objavo in se pustite presenetiti.


And soon there will be a moment for one of you. I have a little gift for you. Leave a comments on this post and wait till Monday :o)

To in ono / This and that


Bolj ko razmišljam, manj besed najdem s katerimi bi začela prvo objavo v novem letu. Novo leto... novo... vse novo... nov koledar, nov začetek, nove obljube, zaobljube... pa vendar sem bila vesela, ko so se po praznikih dnevi vrnili v stare utečene, predvidljive tire. 


Prvega januarja sem razmišljala o novoletnih zaobljubah. Čeprav jih imam rada in se mi zdi simpatično dati nek okvir novemu letu, sem si za letos izbrala moto. Ničesar si ne bom obljubljala, ničesar zapovedovala, rada bi le, da bi se mi v možgane vtisnilo naslednje:

KEEP CALM 
AND 
CARRY ON

z vsemi variacijami na temo seveda

KEEP CALM AND CROCHET ON
KEEP CALM AND SMILE ON
KEEP CALM AND CARRY YARN
KEEP CALM AND EAT CHOCOLATE
 ...



More I try to think of a smart words to start this first post of the year, emptier my head is. New Year... new start... new calendar... new resolutions... new... everything is new... I like those new beginnings... but I also like when days - after week of celebrations returns to their old predictable ways. Early morning starts of the day, school, morning with my Little B, afternoons with all my kids... but the freshness of New Year is here!

I'm not going to write my New Year resolutions this year... I'm not making them... I have chosen a motto for myself this year and all the others that will follow. 

KEEP CALM 
AND 
CARRY ON

with all variations

KEEP CALM AND CROCHET ON
KEEP CALM AND SMILE ON
KEEP CALM AND CARRY YARN
KEEP CALM AND EAT CHOCOLATE
 ...

 Kvačkanje napreduje... vrstica za vrstico, pa je jopica pripravljena, da jo sešijem skupaj. V delu imam že mali brezrokavniček. Zaenkrat kvačkam brez vzorcev, ampak letos bi se rada posvetila tudi njim. Nekaj poskusnih kvadratkov sem že naredila.


When I have time, I crochet. Row after row and lovely simple cardigan is almost ready to put on.

 * * * * *



In to, drage moje, je naš posvojenec. Kar izgubljeni smo bili brez Arota in tišina, ki je ostala za njim, je bila grozljiva. 
Groma smo vsi takoj sprejeli in tudi on je med nami, kot bi bil že od nekdaj tu (kot je rekla gospodična N).


And this is our adopted giant. The silence that has settled around our home after Aro died was  scary, horrifying. So my parents went to the dog shelter and Grom (Thunder in English) was there. Now he is ours and we are his.

Še nekaj. 
Drobtinice praznujejo rojstni dan.
V naslednji objavi vas čaka presenečenje.
Do takrat...


At the end...
My little blog Drobtinice had a birthday few days ago.
I'm planning a little giveaway in my next post.
Until then...
