My Dailylife

My daily routine is presently influenced by different obsessions: surviving my last year at university, keeping this blog updated, pursuing my eco-terrorsit career and being a recycling freak, refraining my geek habits and tutti quanti!

*I added ‘part 1’ because I know for sure that there will lots of article about Christmas time :3*

Today, it’s the 1st of December and yesterday, I bought *at the last minute* an Advent Calendar.
(didn’t had the time to make one myself this year)

This means the beginning of a magical season with lots of yummy things to tastes!
From Saint-Nicolas to my first cougnous, the Christmas markets all over the places and family dinners…
(yep, that’s not a time for diet, I can tell you…><)

Incredible Edible Itterbeek Park September 2015

It’s such a great feeling to visit the park next door and to pick up tomatoes, beans, herbs and nuts! What am I gonna do with those, hu?

 

Autumn is approaching!In a few weeks, fall will be here! A season (my favorite actually!) full of riches, especially for all the tastes it offers! I have already collected in the Itterbeek park hazelnuts, apples, pears … and now my father came to me with a huge pumpkin from his garden and green apples from my aunt’s! Nice kick-off!

The last time I went to do my shopping in Tongeren Färm, I came across this little chick who was squealing very loudly right next to the entrance. I watched it for a while, it was very small and did not move when I approached. I even wondered if he was able to fly. I saw some other birds of the same species flying around and landing next to him. I entered the store to make my grocery, and when I came out, he was gone. I looked for it behind the fence (it might have fallen), but I didn’t find it. No doubt he was trying to fly for the first time and tired, he was stuck on the fence and had to rest.

So today is my aging day…fortunately, it’s also a day of celebration! To begin, a small bouquet from my sweetheart!

I present the cat of Itterbeek park! It has no name (just call out ‘kitty, kitty’ and here it comes). This feline is somehow the mascot of the youth center (where the compost is located and where neighborhood committee meetings are held). When weather is nice, it’s tanning in the middle of the lawn, between the swings and slides. And when it rains, he walks, nonchalantly, in the building (it also jumps from knees to knees during neighborhood committee to get pet).

And in the picture below, you can admire our very first 2015 radishes! This time we took a mix of seeds and therefore there are white and pink! There should also be breakfast type radishes, but they aren’t showing up yet.

I've launched this blog project (after many others) at the beginning of my university studies in 2009. The goal was to share my bento pictures and recipes with all the friends that were asking for. The time passing by, my posts have changed, they got more diverse. Now that my last year in university has come (soon I'll be a graduate in communication, animation and events organisation), I've decided to pursue this projet a bit more seriously. So here I am ! From now, I'll make you discover my tiny life day to day ! I'm quite a short girl (150cm tall!) and I guess that my low angle vision of the world might be a bit different from the other people. You'll quickly understand that the little things of everyday life make me happy !

Eccentric, you say?

Not at all ... it's much worse than you can imagine!
