My parents and my little sister went to Italy, to visit my nonno, yesterday.
I decided to stay at home. My brother is here, too, but he works (shifts) and my boyfriend, who works, too, moved in with me for this week.
I made this decision because I wanted to know how it feels like, taking care of myself and becoming more indipendent.
I knew it wouldn`t be easy. We`re a big family, so there`s always someone around, which gives me a lot of security.
But I want to get that security from myself.
So far, it`s pretty good. Sure, sometimes it`s weird and I feel a bit lonely during the day, but I think I`m doing ok.
So I have a lot of time, and I`m trying to keep myself busy with household keeping, cooking, baking, knitting, playing the piano and stuff.
A few things I made, so far:
Crochet head band with bow.
I made it with this great tutorial
Knitted wrist warmers with crochet bows.
Seriously, I was very sceptic about this recipe, because it`s vegan, but this cake is amazingly delicious.
It was still warm, when I ate my first piece and it`s so light and fluffy and tasty..perfect!
400g grounded carrots
400g spelt or whole wheat flour
200g brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
juice and zest of 1 lemon
1 package baking powder
200ml sunflower/rapeseed oil
Preheat oven to 180 °C.
Just mix all ingridients together, and fill in a round cake tin.
Bake for 40 minutes and allow to cool on a rack before you eat the first (and best) piece!
My boyfriend and I made this pumpkin. Doesn`t it looks just like Jack Skellington from " Nightmare before Christmas".
We`re probably going to watch the movie tonight, like every year around this time.
So, that was about it.
I`m in a very productive mood.
Which is good, because I`m going to be a student, starting next week.
I got accepted at this special academy for creative writing.
It`s a special academy, where you can only make long-distance studying.
I am so happy and very excited!
