just a minute in september

the second half of the year always seems to pass so much faster,
october is just around the corner, three more months and that will be it.

reading yama no oto, yasunari kawabata
watching moonrise kingdom
working a lot
writing letters
baking bread & scones
wishing i could live near the mountains and trees

hope you have a wonderful weekend

chocolate afternoons

august, 2012.
for some unkown reason
i find myself taking more & more vertical pictures.


chocolate & nutella mug cake, for two
original recipe here


4 tbsp self rising flour
3 tbsp cocoa powder
3 tbsp nutella
3 tbsp milk
1 tbsp sugar (i used vanilla sugar)
♥ 1tbsp oil (the original recipe calls for olive oil, but mine is sacred so i used canola instead)
1 egg

combine all the ingredients together in an big, big cup.
whisk together with a fork until combined and smooth.

if you have a microwave, microwave it for about a minute.
if you don't, like me, then bake for 15- 20 minutes in a regular oven.
let cool, sprinkle with some powder sugar & enjoy with someone you love.


un día en andalucía

"if you look the right way, 
you can see that the whole world is a garden."
frances hodgson burnett

august, 2012.
an afternoon with mel., spent playing and frolicking
with the bees and the orange trees, camellias & tiny blossoms.

the earth is waking just in time for spring.
you can hear it in the songs the birds sing,
you can see it on the leaves.
