Happy Easter 2013

 At this part of the country and living in the middle of nowhere I payed over $10 dollars for just 5 tulips. I left at the coffee table and this morning I found all the flowers in the floor. We have cats and I imagined what happened. I saved the poor flowers and gave them a place in the middle of kitchen table. When I left the house I thought about a bouquet of tulips but the florist told me that he sells them individually and given the price it's a good thing. Perhaps where you live flowers are in good price but it is expensive here. I understand it though since we are far from every thing. I made an orange cake in honor of Easter, Spring and sunshine. It is easy and it's done mostly in the blender. The cake is nice and light, fluffy and delicious with a herbal tea. Wishing a happy Easter to everyone!!
Encontrei minhas tulipas no chao hoje de manha. Os tres gatos trabalharam nisso. Aqui onde vivemos no meio do nada pra comprar flores e um pouco caro. Sai de casa pensando em comprar um bouquet de Tulipas mas com o precinho alto comprei so 5 , o florista min falou que esta vendendo cada uma individualmente. Salvei as tulipas e coloquei em cima da mesa dessa vez.
A receita pra o bolo esta aqui
The recipe is in Portuguese, if you would like it send me a note so I may send it to you via e-mail.

Sharing

Great Spring ahead! That is what I am hoping for. This last 20th was officially Spring but we have had snow in the last two days and plenty of snow.  Let's hope it melts fast. I know this is not a DIY blog but I want to share a few things I made and also about what I am reading. Share what you have been reading. It will be fun to hear from you.  The bunny I made for my daughter about 18 years ago. It is old and dirty. I thought about redoing the mouth and see what else I can do for this poor bunny.
Primavera a frente! Bem, isso e o que eu estava esperando. O ultimo dia 20 foi o dia em que estamos oficialmente na Primavera mas tem nevado nos ultimos dois dias e muita neve. Esperamos que se derreta bem rapidinho. Sei que esse blog nao e  pra mostrar ideas "fazer por voce mesma" especificamente mas gosto de compartilhar algumas coisas que fiz e ate sobre algum livro que estou lendo. Se quiser diga-nos of que esta lendo, sera bom saber o que voce anda lendo. O coelhinho fiz pra minha filha mais our menos 18 anos atras. E bastante velho e penso que devo refazer a boca e ver o que mais posso fazer pra esse pobre coelhinho. Talvez acabe nao fazendo nada, vamos ver.

Around here in March



 First there was rain then it changed to snow. Yesterday the trees had this marvelous crystal look to them and when the light of the sun shined on the branches every tine ice formation was filled with light and how I love when when that happens.  Estas arvores estao em frente da nossa casa. Ontem elas se pareciam crystal com a luz do sol brilhando no gelo que estava nos galhos.
 A bit more intimate look at that snow on our pine tree in front of the house.  Uma olhada mas de perto pra ver o gelo nos galhos. E abaixo neve no pinheiro.

I made some sugar cookies for church! I like to make them in such light pastel colors. They bring thoughts of Spring! It was actually not too bad with some coffee.   
Have a great day!!
Fiz algumas bolachinhas pra levar pra igreja. Gosto muito da Primavera porque se usa cores pastel como essas. Ficaram bem com uma xicara de cafe.
Tenha um lindo dia!!
