and when I finished filling .. put it on a plate..and presented as her new pincushion..she enjoyed so much.. and asked me for another one.. now I am doing a rectangle one.. with a pistache refill and a cream coloured topping.. maybe some glass beads as decorations.. my daughter asked one for herself .. whole chocolate colour..with a red berry on the top..she says she will use as a decoration for her room so maybe I can fill it with some pot-porri ??.. inspirations..the cupcakes are this automn's success around here.. thank you bloggers..
so in the morning I woke up early.. everybody else being asleep.. I prepared my coffee.. took the photo of the two..then went on the balcony..
here is the view..
It remainds me some renaissance paintings.. of Tuscan countyside.. the geography of the area with sloping hills.. trees and fiels.. It was so windy..that the sound of the wind passing through the fiels was like a stormy sea's sound.. surprising..I never heard it..
I may like coffee.. but the rest of the family are 'tea persons'.. so as was up before them I started the preparations of the breakfast.. as tea making is different in here.. it takes time..the boiled water is poured in the small teapot..over the tea leaves .. the small teapot placed over the big one.. again on the oven..and we keep sizzling the water.. 20 min at least so that tea has all his taste and flavor and colour in the water..
and we serve them in special tea glasses.. how is the colour..??
after breakfast.. which became nearly a brunch.. we had a walk.. up to the hills.. the one who is waving hands on the rocks is my son.. Monsieur LaFontaine..
he is a speedy one.. or I was very slow.. well I had my reasons.. there is such a beatiful view .. and such interesting rocks.. and flowers.. and mosses.. I had to stop frequently to take photos..
these are for tomorrow.. maybe with another cake.. and coffee..
