This is my week so far!

Time  really goes  fast. In a few days, I am going to spend a three week vacation in the Philippines. And I am really looking forward for it. But before I leave, I invited my mother-in-law to a dinner.  We were only three, me, my youngest daughter and mother-in-law, since my hubby was still ombord. He is coming home the day before I leave to say hello and goodbye to me. So I am both happy and sad.
Anyway, table for three.


I served salad together with...


...lasagne. My daughter's request.


Dinner table


For the dessert we had gele  and I baked Pavlova cake. This is the bunn.


My daughter made toppings of vanilie and whipped cream and decorated with assorted fruits. This cake tastes heaven! Our favorite.


Sign of Easter.  Small tree decorated with colorful feathers


And guess what? This flower lady captured some flowers shots too:) 

Beautiful orchids where I work.





A touch of green.


Well,  Gospel choir came to visit the elderly to entertain them at the activity center where I work. They sang beautifully. So I enjoyed my evening with them.


Before I end this post, I want you to say hello to Sara Giraffe. My project this week.

This picture is from the hobby book 


And this is my  crotheted giraffe


Solbjøg liked it very much. She bought it for her grandson.


I went also to the cinema  with a friend and watched  Anna Karenina. 

Anna Karenina (DVD)

So that is for now.

Since I am going on vacation, I don't know if I will find time to blog, but who knows:)

See you Philippines on Saturday!
