The new habits are coming along nicely. We had a row of 3 Sundays writing letters and postcards and spend some time during the week thinking of who to write to and what to send. Postage is low here so one can send some goodies along. And this country is full of cute things - especially when it comes to stationary and everything concerning paper...
And we also managed to try out new recipes. Well, not exactly recipes but also some new ways of presenting food. I tried out the roughly cut zucchini as a side dish from my Pinterest
And we also had the tiny bite size caprese in between:
The pictures are from my Pinterest pinboard of yummy treats again. I keep on adding to these!
And after a lovg period of rain which I did not witness because I was in germany at that time the sun came back again and we are now in the middle of a hot summer with over 30 degrees. And although we are living in one of the megacities of the world we try and find some spaces to have a green surrounding. And that is easy here in Seoul with a lot of parks, temple gardens and green spaces and all the beautiful mountains around the city.
Last week we were taken to Seoul Dream Forest. it is near where we live and easy to reach so we could theoretically go there on a daily basis. It is a wonderful plot of Green with a meandering little water stream floating through, a lake, waterfalls, deer , playgrounds, a huge forest and a piazza with water fountains where the children can have endless fun fighting with the water.
I am really tempted to take an extra set of clothes myself...
And yes, school started for the children and especially for Jakob who had his first day of school. I took a lot of pictures and we had a little party but I still have to sort some photos out and upload it later. I am already working on his school album because with the chird child I am more organized. I collected things during the last years for our other two children but just finished a few pages. And now I want to be more diligent from the beginning. So I prepared paper, ephemera and ordered divider sheets to complete/start the album - just wait and see...
My craftroom is full of stacks of precut paper -color coordinated of course and is waiting to be played with!
See you soon here in the middle of summer, at school or in my craftroom amongst the paper (painting walls in the house will be a pasttime for colder weather I think)
