Porezen

Vremenska napoved za danes je bila megla, sploh v hribih. Pozimi pač lahko pričakujemo meglo in mraz. Kljub slabi napovedi jaz vseeno nisem mogla ostati doma. Ideja je bila, da greva na Porezen. Po poti sva videla komaj par metrov pred sabo, na vrhu pa skoraj nič. Presenetila pa naju je odprta planinska koča, kjer sva se lahko pogrela. Imeli so tudi joto in ocvirkovco. Kaj bi hoteli več!

Fotka z vrha bi bila brez veze, saj se ni nič videlo. Spodnje so s poti do vrha. Zima v hribih ima svoj čar. V dolini pa se že začenja pomlad. Pred našo hišo že cvetijo prvi zvončki.

Weather forecast for today was fog especially in the mountains. In winter fog is expected. Despite the weather I couldn't stay at home. We went to Porezen. There was really poor visibility and we could see only a few metres in front of us. On the top of the mountain we couldn't see practically anything. We were surprised because mountain cottage was opened and nice warm and they also had some food available.

I didn't make any photos on the top. It didn't have any meaning. But I made some on our way to the top. Winter in the mountains is magic. Down in the valley it is almost a spring. There are some snowdrops in front of our house.

krokodil / a crocodile toy

Kakšne igrače so všeč desetletnim fantom? Ljubke, majhne, puhaste... Seveda ne. Odpade. V poštev pridejo pridevniki kot je strašno,...Ja, no, krokodil, dinozaver, zmaj ali nekaj vmes. 

Tale krokodil je zadnje dni nastajal pod mojim šivalnim strojem. Naredila sva ga skupaj z mojim desetletnikom. On je krokodila narisal, proučil zobovje, določil barve, pa pogled mora biti strašen... Imeti mora rumene oči, pa velika usta, ki jih na široko odpre, da kar čutiš kako bi te lahko požrl.

Oba sva se potrudila, nastal pa je tale prijazen krokodil. Ime zanj še iščeva. Krokodil pa se skupaj z mačkom že valja po kavču.

What kind of a toy would a ten year old boy like? Lovely, small, soft... I'm afraid, but such a toy wouldn't be the best choice. The toy should be described as scary, like dinosaur, crocodile or maybe a dragon. 

I sewed this crocodile lately. My ten year old son drew it. He picked up colours, defined the yellow eyes and sharp teeth. 

We both did our job and at the end we made this friendly crocodile. It still hasn't got a name yet. It has become a friend with our old cat and they are together on our sofa.

nad meglo / above the fog

Dolino je pokrivala megla, približno tisoč metrov višje pa je bil sonček in čudovito modro nebo. Le zakaj se je treba vrniti nazaj domov?

There was really foggy down in our valley. Just about a thousand metres higher there was clear sky and sunshine. Why do we have to go home?

zvezdice / little stars

Letos smo se potrudili z novoletnimi okraski. V dnevni sobi smo postavili novoletno jelko in jaslice. Moja hči je nora na lučke. V hodniku pa smo postavili vejo z zvezdicami. Majhne zvezdice sem skvačkala in jim dodala perlico. Spekli smo tudi piškote, večinoma zvezdice.

Danes je oblačno in se tistih pravih zvezdic ne vidi. Kljub temu jim lahko zaupamo naše želje. Vesel Božič! 

We decorated a New Year tree and set up a Christmas crib. My daughter adores small lights on New Year tree. We also put a small tree branch in our hallway and decorated it with little crocheted stars. Children baked some biscuits in the shape of a star. 

It is cloudy today and we can't see stars in the sky. Anyway we can trust them our wishes. Marry Christmas to all!

Božičkova kapa / Santa Claus hat

December je čas pričakovanja, čas za lepe želje in darila. Moj gimnazijka si je želela Božičkovo kapo. Tako je nastala rdeča kapa z velikim cofom in perlicami. In december je zanjo še malo bolj pravljičen.

December is time of expectations, nice wishes and time for the presents. My teenage daughter wanted the Santa Claus hat. So I knitted a red one. December is a little bit more like fairy tale for her now.

sneg, Matajur, adventni venček / Snow, Matajur and Advent wreath

Spet je minil teden, nekje med službo in družino. Nekje med majhnimi uspehi in nezgodami, ki so bile ta teden kar pogoste. Res je smola, ko se je po nesreči raztrgala nova bunda. Pa smo jo zakrpali. Mogoče ne bo opaziti.
Naredili smo adventni venček. V glavnem smo uporabili lanske rožice, dodali pa tudi nekaj novih. Upam, da se te hitro opazi.

I spent last week in my working place and with my family. Last week bad luck was pretty common. For example: a new winter jacket was torn. We found a solution and patched it up. Maybe, nobody will notice.
We also made an advent wreath. We used old flowers mostly, but we also added some new. We hope that new ones will be noticed soon.
Pri nas ni snega, zato smo šli pogledat, kako je v hribih. Matajur je bel in čudovit. Pot na vrh je nekoliko bolj naporna, zato pa je spust zabavnejši. A tedna še ni konec. Še ena majhna nezgoda. Na vrhu Matajurja, se je na mojem fotiču napisalo, da je baterija prazna. Problem smo rešili z mobijem.  Upam, da boste takoj opazili mraz, sneg, veter in to, da je bilo danes na Matajurju čudovito.

We went on Matajur, because there is a lot of snow there. Matajur is white and simply wonderful. It's quite a hard work to reach the top of the mountain, but the descent is very funny. Another bad luck happeded to me on the top. I read a sign on my camera: battery exhausted. So I took some pictures with my mobile phone. I hope you could see the snow, cold, wind and the beauty of the nature.
