Virtual Coffee {14} Randomness and pictures


Hello friends, and welcome to coffee. 
If we were really having coffee today I would tell you that I’m looking out at the first truly blue sky we’ve had for the past two weeks. It’s supposed rain again this afternoon but I’m grateful for this little bit of sunshine. And now that we got the weather out of the way…

I would tell you that there have been a lot of firsts this week.

I made my first crepes ever, nutella and banana and then ham and cheese the husband loved them, the kids weren’t all that interested. I have weird children, they would rather eat cheese (the girl) or pasta (the boy) than nutella, I’d wonder if they were mine if I hadn’t birthed them.
And here’s a picture of a crepe, another first (or practically since I post pictures so rarely!):

I also made chocolate peanut butter chip cookies. They were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. They’re actually all gone already, so don’t ask me how the diet’s going, cause it’s not. The picture doesn’t do them justice:

Since I’m always fighting with the kids about keeping the markers on the paper when they’re drawing and I had several large cartons from my new outdoor ikea chairs:
me, enjoying the new chairs, I love them, though the wood doesn't match the rest of our outdoor furniture

I decided to let them loose on the cartons so they could draw, for once, without being confined to a small area, this was so exciting the markers ended up getting a bit away from them. This is the result:
so happy

what? you NEVER said I couldn't draw on my face

Their Nonna talked us into letting her buy them a new toy house, she went a bit overboard too and this is the result of that:

So the kids have a new summer residence, I have new chairs (finally, this has been a thorn in my side for the past three years), and the diet’s gone to sh*t, but one can’t have everything, right?

So the conclusion to this post on randomness is well… life is good. There, I said it again, and the consequences be damned!

Have a lovely day, and visit our hostess Amy for coffee too!


  1. haha -- love the artful faces!! thanks for coffee -- always love your pics!

  2. Your crepes turned out FINE!!!! Good job!
    I've been on a chocolate peanut butter kick- eating natural peanut butter on a spoon, dotted with chocolate chips. A lot quicker than baking :)

  3. oh the markers on the face! Soooo funny! The crepes look yummy

  4. My son just saw those cookies and FREAKED OUT cause he wanted them so bad. Ha!

    The markers on the face so totally crack me up. That is so like kids...

    And that playhouse ROCKS!!! I think it's nicer than my house!

    Well, it sounds like you are enjoying life! Have a wonderful week and may the sunshine last a little longer.

    Thanks for coffee.

  5. .......non mi hai conservato neanche un biscotto?!?!?!?!?
    Shame on you!!!!!

  6. Mmmmm those cookies look like a nice dessert after that crepe. Thanks for having me over!!! And the markers on the face are a familiar sight...x

  7. Looks like the kids felt confined even if it was a large area, hehe...regarding the amazing looking cookies, how do you get them to stay puffy. Mine always get flat...I want the chewyness!!

  8. LOL how fun! Glad things are going well!

  9. First of all, I need the recipe for those cookies. I'm salivating at the sight of them. Second of all, never mind about the chairs - I want that garden house! Glad you've had a good week, any week that involves homemade cookies and crepes has to be a winner. x

  10. LOL how fun! Glad things are going well!
