Inside and Outside

“Don’t read blogs all day – write your own”, he said and here I am.
I hope to keep a diary here of what happens at home, in the garden and wherever else we might be.

This blog will be in English, so my non-German friends and families will be able to read it too.
For translation (and something to laugh about) you my use Google Translator. Did you know that cats are “kleine Verdrängungswettbewerb”? No? Well, that’s what Google Translator says.

Today was the usual mixture of reading, housekeeping and being a baby-carrier.
Also, we (that is, Tarini) made curd, sweet rice and rhubard apple crisp (I froze some rhubard in June).

How to make curd

You need:
Milk (ours was on sale)
A pot
A (cheese)cloth
Lemon juice or vinegar
Something to stir with

Place the cheesecloth with the curd under something heavy so that the rest of the whey is being squeezed out

What else happened?

I made some pretty things with natural materials. Very simple, very effective! Just collect some things, take needle and thread and be creative!
