a walk in the park

mrB had the day off today so we took the little ones to the park where they can run free. It was very hot and we were almost alone, Sissy had the fun of her life running around like crazy and sniffing everything in her way.Fanni on the other hand took small walks and stayed away from the sun resting under the trees...its not easy for her with that big belly...

Afterwards we took them back home and the two of us went for lunch in a tavern nearby but instead of ordering food we ended up drinking tsipouro (a Greek drink like ouzo) and got back home almost drunk.
It really was a lovely day .... : )

expecting puppies !!!!

I'm so worried....
Our little Fani is expecting puppies for the first time. We were not sure until a couple of days ago when her belly began to grow bigger. My poor baby is very quiet...always hungry and thirsty ... not in the mood for games and constantly looking for cool spots around the house. I try to satisfy all her needs and im very worried about the whole situation. I just hope nothing will go wrong...
We don't know how many puppies shes going to have yet, we just hope not over 3. I already have found friends to adopt 2 of them and im thinking of keeping one although it wont be easy...
The birth will take place in about 30 days from now, we'll make her a cosy "bed" in our spare room to keep her calm and away from Sissy who is starting to act a little weird - nervous but not aggressive (probably sensing somethings about to happen).

our guests left a couple of days ago and the house feels a little empty but they will come back again in a month or so :)
i did my "summer cleaning", well half of it... i took out my summer clothes and packed all the winter ones...and i decided i need to go on a diet as soon as possible (or buy new clothes :P). i still have to wash and pack mrB's clothes though but i'll leave it for the weekend....

octopus ! !

i love it ! i just love it !!!
with no pattern -typical me- i made this lovely little octopus. it was very quick and easy and i think he looks pretty funny. i also decided to crochet a whole series of sea creatures and have a small sea world corner in the house.

a small trip to METEORA

METEORA is one of the most famous places in Greece just  a half hour drive from TrikalaCity.
 The sight is absolutely breathtaking with the huge rocks and the monasteries reaching up to the sky. there's so much history and so many things to say about this place that i think its best to let the pictures speak for themselves.

hungry puppy

hungryy puppy funny sketch coloured pencils drawing

a little disaster

we have guests over the last few days and its wonderful !!
the only draw back is that i don't have time to do my crafts. the only thing i managed to do is crochet a few flowers for miss snakes. i think she looks much better now.

sadly we had a little accident. mrB is pretty clumsy some times and this time he had me crying like a baby over    the broken pieces of my favorite little geisha statue. it belonged to my grandma and i loved it since i was a kid. i did glue the pieces back together but you can see small holes here and there...i just hope this is mrBs  last victim... : p

nameday teddy

crochet teddy plush toy funny

 It was one of my best friends nameday the other day (you know who you are)... i havent seen her for a long time and i really miss her (we first met back in school when we were just 12 and we love each other - we're like family now).
I want to give her something special and unique so i decided to make her a little crochet teddy bear....
with no pattern i started crocheting the body first and then the head and little arms...tiny ears and tail...and finally a scarf and flower...i dont know if she'll like it (she better) or if she'll throw it away...but i put all my love to it....
