Sunny winter!

Hello friends and thank you for visiting my blog!
First of all, please dont hate me for my english! It takes a lot courage to write a blog in english being a Greek but I once made up my mind I am!..
Its  end of December , in fact its  the heart of winter, though we dont feel that cold  here in Nothern Greece. Days are sunny and hot and I think this is going to last  for a little bit more! Today I went out in the garden to shoot some fotos of my colorfull granny squares which once joined side by side are going to make a shawl.Igor was keeping me company waiting patiently.

I have to make 8-10 granny squares and then I will take a needle and join them.

Light colors make me feel really happy!

My basket always full of yarns follows me even in the garden where the physicall light helps me to get better fotos.

It felt so good in the garden that I took my breakfast outside, a boiled egg and  bread sprinkled with olive oil and oregano!

I made a video for these grannies on You Tube , come and join me there ,
 Merry Mary Stories, only a few videos for the moment but I intend to do more and more!

I usually have  my laptop on the kitchen table so I can cook and knit ...and write at the same time but kitchen is so crowded some times that I really want to use a vanishing spell.


Grannies are so pleasant to crochet, I choose my colours for seven rows and I start off!

Igor is watching my plate and waits for its walk. Due to tachycardias that happen to me from time to time  I gave up walking with him as loud barkings when he meets his friends make me really upset,a gift of my anxiety in combination with my age...

I could not resist thιs look  though so I told him the magic words....go fetch your leash! 

That sunny day I had to go for a walk to breath in some  fresh air and make Igor very  happy as  that was its second walk after the usual morning one.

In  the yard of the  deserted old stone house of our neighborhood  the walk is always an adventure for the dogs, they keep on smelling the ground , the tree trunk and choose where to leave their trace.

We are not alone in this walk, Kara and her daugter the two  adopted street dogs are keeping us company

Its lovely being outside this time of the year, it feels like spring is coming ! 
Happiness is made from every day moments , we must try to feel this deeply.
I thank you for keeping me company !
