Some life thoughts welcoming 2013



Hi Guys

Its me 

The One and Only

ArtandPlejWoman

 Its time for saying goodbye 2012 
and soon time 
for opening up the champagne

 celebrating  


The brand new

One and only 

2013

Can you feel it? 
Can you breath it? 
Can you already enjoy it?  


First some minutes 
of greatfulness 


Baggböle, Calvados

Yes you managed 2012

Some things were hard and 
some things where the best in your life so far. 

Life is a beautiful magical mystery tour and it will continue until last breath, and if you are reading this
I guess you are entering

2013 

Still a virgin
a 
posibility being part of  
day by day
minute by minute 
until last breath



Dont overdo it
find your balance 
listen to your inner voice 
the whisper 
of your beautiful 
Soul 




Join me in my favorite and traditionally played music for New Year




I wish you All 

 a
Happy New Year!

My Christmas Kitchen, part 5 Marzipan-roll:)


 I love Marzipan and make some special Marzipan candy every Christmas:)

This year I have made a marzipan-roll possible to cut delicous slices from. 

Yam yam:)






Marzipan, nougat, almonds, hazelnuts, dried fruit: apricot, dates, figs,rum, chocolate


I used Havana club Anejo Reserva dark rum from Cuba, reminding me of a fantastic travel to Cuba many years ago


The fruit cut in pieces together with rum 
for one hour



Almonds and hazelnuts heated up in a 
hot dry pan a few minutes. 
The taste developes like magic doing this!


Ready for the next step



Cut in pieces



I prepared the nougat before 
spreading it out on the marzipan


Nice and easy to spreat out on the marzipan 
already made thin



Put on the fruit and the hazelnuts and alomonds



Start making the roll




It will look like this inside, 
The fruit will show up more and more 
after some slices:)



Covered with chocolate and decorated with 
hazelnuts and almonds


It was very easy to do this marzipan-roll and if you like marzipan I wish you good luck making one yourself


Enjoy!

Mrs Bumble Bees Friday Speech






Hi Guys 

its me again

Mrs Bumble Bee:))






Guess what??

The world is still here!!!
 
Some of you might have heard about the Mayan calender and the date of the 21th of december. Some people said the world would collapse this date, and some said

 ... it will be the startdate of a new better era.

Lets celebrate the better times coming:)
 
The ArtandPlejwomans christmas holiday starts this afternoon. 
I have arranged a flowerpowersurprise for her:)





 I found an old flower in a very bad shape 
in one of the windows.
I thought it might cheer up some in this christmas mixed beauty and return to health:)




I used some christmas decorations and put it  together with the flowers




A small Santa resting in the FlowerPowerJungle
