Today we are trying a different bread recipe made with a fresh yeast starter. Evelina is helping with the baking today and getting her hands really dirty.
It is snowing! At around 5pm today the skies opened up and it started coming down like crazy. Huge wet snow flakes everywhere. Only Evelina was happy with this turn of events, we all just looked in disbelief! I am sure this snow is not going to stick around around for long, but we all […]
Perhaps one of the things that Boris and Evelina missed the most about Edmonton was their cousins. The greatest thing in their minds is the fact that our family lives close to us. On a beautiful fall day with the sun shining and leaves blowing in the wind they got on their bikes and went […]
If we are not eating, we are actively thinking about what to make and eat next. Seriously, that is what we do. Today is another lazy Thanksgiving weekend morning. On the go for breakfast are fresh, homemade Belgian waffles! Life is good.
It is finally time to make the landing post and say goodbye to Iceland. I have been home for a couple of weeks now buried in work. Not the business work but house work. There is a seemingly endless list of house chores that need doing, some due to what appears to be plain neglect, some […]
According to the flight tracker, the eagle has landed. Welcome to Edmonton?!
Boarding passes in hand, family is off through security scan. That is a lot of electronic fruit they need to pull out.
I think these smiles say it all, or they are just posing for the camera. In Frankfurt at the airport just waiting to get bows all wrapped up and set off.
Courtyard, or our back yard has two trees, both maples, one is 6 and the other one is about 7 stories high. They are just starting to turn yellow and drop their leaves.
After a great dinner we headed home for cakes, coffee and presents. This was a great birthday and while we could not have everyone we would like to have here it was still a happy day for Boris.
The drive is very slow. It seems everyone in Italy is sticking to using two lanes at the same time. Austria is all under construction so most of the drive through Austria was at 100 km/h – shame. We stopped for a quick dinner in Austria in Tyrol then set off on our way. Finally, […]
While these are not going to replace the sweet, sweet sound of my Focal, PrimaLuna and REL – this is a vast improvement over having to listen to the mono speaker on the Mac Mini while watching TV or listening to music.
There are no more boxes to assemble. There are no more boxes to take down. The home assembly I now completed. We are officially open for business and the dates are going fast. Our first guests were the Great Danes. Our first guests from Canada are arriving on the 25th of August and we are […]
So after almost 30 years I am back in the city I grew up in. While a lot has changed it here, not much really did. In the end it is really all a matter of perspective. What seemed bright, huge and wonderful as I remembered it, is now aged, dull and all plastered in […]
Today we are signing a rent deal on our new home. We can’t wait to have a place of our own – I think it will be spectacular, and we are all ecstatic.
