Moscow farmers market - Danislovsky market

Loren who loves nice, fresh and natural groceries has done some great research about Moscow's supermarkets and farmers markets since we moved here. Danislovsky market is one of Moscow's oldest and biggest indoor markets and the best thing is that we only live 15 minutes away. Located on Mytnaya ul 74 with nearest metro station Tulskaya. Last Sunday Team Nikolovski did our premier exploration to this fresh products paradise. An explosion of colors from all the fruits and vegetables met us and the atmosphere was great. For me coming from Sweden this is very exotic as we don't have this kind of markets but also for Loren who has been living away from Macedonia for a long time. You can find more or less everything here not only fruit and veggies but also eggs, meat, fresh cheese and bread. Also babushkas selling homemade marmalade, jam, pickled vegetables and many other for me unknown products.

An Colombian restaurant and a couple of interesting café´s with fresh products and coffee smelling divine was located at the back of the market hall. We bought some nice stuff for dinner and we will for sure be back soon. The market is open every day until 21.00 so we can even come here instead of our normal weekly supermarket shopping. The prices are high as it is Moscow we live in and with the currency crisis food prices has increased a lot in very short time, however the market prices stands up pretty well compared to the supermarkets. Some products are cheaper and some are more expensive.  Loren has asked colleagues about controls of the products and they claim that it is very heavily controlled the origin and hygiene standard etc ( so this is what we want to believe )  A lot of the vegetables & fruits comes from Azerbaijan but also Turkey.

Påsken 2021

Vi flög till Stockholm och hängde några dagar hos mamma i deras nya lägenhet inne i stan. Barnen testade leka i Vasaparken rakt över gatan. Första vårsolen värmde äntligen lite. Det kändes härligt och konstigt att folk satt på uteserveringar och att restauranger och caféer var öppna. Prinsesstårta, semla och påskbakelse på en uteservering. Jag passade på att klippa mig eftersom frisörerna varit stängda sedan december och min man vuxit sig lång. Jag följde med Sofie ut till stallet och red hennes fina häst medan barnen hade movie night med mormor.  Nere i Vingåker fick vi äntligen träffa Bozze och morfar. Leka med bästis och grilla med farbror Christer. Min morfar var färdig vaccinerad och bjöd oss på våfflor. Barnen gick till frisören och blev kanonsnygga i håret. Lekt mycket med grannbarnen och njutit av att kunna spring och ut hur och när man vill.  En morgon vaknade vi till snö. Aprilväder. Filip och jag gick en före-frukost promenad i skogen för att njuta av snön. Eftersom det ändå

More honesty to the world, please...

I was looking for quotes about honesty and found: " Honesty has come to mean  the provilege of insulting you to your face without expecting redress."                                                          /Judith Martin "People who are brutally honest get more satisfaction out of the brutality then out of the honesty"                                                    /R J Needham What is wrong with people?? Is this really the view about honesty??  I am seriously chocked!! My new hairdresser ís very honest... Last time I was there she told me my hair has a dull cardboard box tone...  I understood directly that it can't be a good thing to compare my haircolor with a greyish box... Thanks to honesty my hair is now shiny in a brown/redish color... My hair is looking good and I am a happy and satisfied customer If you ask me Honesty & Honest people rules!!!

Weekly Update 24/52 Making leaving gifts and wine ladies

During week 24 I have been working on preparing thank you gifts for kids teachers and friends. I like to give something symbolic which also can be useful. This year I decided to buy water bottles for the teachers and to make them personalized writing their name and some flowers on them. I bought plain smaller bottles at IKEA. With my Cricut i designed and cut it out of permanent vinyl. With adding vinyl on the bottles, they can only be hand-washed otherwise the vinyl will come off.  After five years in Germany I have gotten so use to saying Frau Janssen rather then using her first name. So I decided that I will use the last name because that is the only name the kids use. Funny how you get use to something that I from the beginning thought was so stupid and old fashion.  When I was playing around with my Cricut I also figured out how to transfer my wine ladies into svg file which is needed so the machine can cut out my illustrations. I did a test with iron on transfer vinyl. I made the
