Working in the greenhouse

Goodmorning Sunday, Yesterday after having fun we went to the manor, to do grass trimming and deal with greenhouse. Deal – because my eggplants and paprika can’t wait much longer! They need beds! Janis went trimming grass and I looked around for a solution to make beds inside the greenhouse for my plants. We ordered a pre-made bed for the […]

Saturday fun!

Is Saturday for work or for fun!? We had fun before work. Finally, after I don’t know how many months… I think almost 2 years we visited our neighbour and actually Nelles classmate! They hadn’t seen each other since March 16! We celebrated the end of the school year and since we didn’t go to schools Lāsma took Nelles school […]

Fully packed Friday

Can’t believe my Friday was so intense! I manage to deal with a lot of house chores and also spend time with girls while Janis was helping to build a playground for Helmī kindergarten group. This isn’t the first time he is helping and I’m proud of having such a nice hearted man in my life! So… about my Friday! […]

Old Chestnut tree and its manor!

It all started five years ago when we were living in Ozolkalns (small village near Gulbene, Latvia) for a year. We couldn’t decide to stay here or buy our property somewhere else. We even thought about moving to Germany, that sounded real with two small kids :). But we are Latvians and wanted to stay in our country even sometimes […]

Nelles Birthday

After that, I and Linna did a photoshoot for the family :). That means Linna took picture of us, and then  I took of Linna and others but the […]

I grow from seeds and working on Greenhouse. Also, don’t know the English term of what father-in-law did in our garden yesterday. But it […]

Nelle is turning 8!

We all know what is Covid19 and also we all know what to do #stayhome! We had an interesting talk with all three girls this January (2020) about what they want for birthdays. We never gave a big present if we made a party. So we talked and we voted, that this year none of the girls will have a […]

Project for fun!

I’m not a video maker, but I wanted to help and also to try something new. *SMU is a learning company set up and run by students with an educational nature. SMU performs the functions of a real company for teaching purposes and operates in a real environment – students produce […]

Veggie garden

We have a veggie garden, that is 40 meters long and 15 meters wide field. 19 rows in total. Don’t know if the word “row” is the right one, but check the picture below. If there is another word how to call this – let me now in the comments below! Why in rows!? Simply Latvians don’t know another way […]
