International Pumpkin Day

Finally, I’m back!

Yesterday was the International Pumpkin Day. Few days ago our friend bring us more then 2 big pumpkins! I was surprised how tender and tasty they are. I though they will be hard as a rock, but they wasn’t.

You should know that my hubby isn’t pumpkin lover🙂 or.. actually he is – he is saving pumpkin from being eaten….

But only I know what’s inside those – “Just a regular soft autumn cookies with dark chocolate on top” cookies. All the family loves them! What a surprise :)… no really …cause I made them out of pumpkin puree! Pumpkin!

Carrot and pumpkin juice isn’t that bad for “pumpkins savers” too.

And after that even pumpkin soup is something you don’t have to be afraid!

Hide and Seek

Busy day
When you woke up in the morning and feel “busy”, don’t be! Go out and play hide and seek with birds!
Busy day

It helps me clear my head, prioritise my to-do list and makes me calm for the rest of the busy day!
Busy day

Try it!
