I'M LIKE NANA

Sorry if this post feels a bit random today, my mind
is a little messed up, I've been out in the sun all day
so that might be why. :))

Anyway, we're having a new studio built in our back
yard so everything is a complete mess right now and
I can't stand mess so just after the snail mail arrived
and the two chocolate banana cakes came out of the
oven me and my man escaped to Mill Hill to hang out
with our dear friend Jeff.
He lives with his old parents who he takes care of and
their home is like a museum, time stopped in the 60's
more or less.
Their little back garden is so cozy, everything is perfect,
flowers, trees, old pots with multicolored tulips and not
a single grass straw is longer than the other.
We sat in the sun for hours, just talking a lot of bull and
planning future projects.
After all this old people cuteness I started to think about
my maternal grandma, Greta, who I miss daily since she
left this earth back in 1996.
I realized that I becoming more and more like her and
I love it. I can't find a better role model even if I tried.


These 1950's sunglasses arrived today. £7.50 from eBay UK.


Is that Latkes? :D
The sweetest person I have ever known, my grandma Greta, 1974.

I love you and miss you dearly.
Aleha HaShalom.



I buy the same kind of flower pots she used to have...


...and I've got green fingers just like her.


I even make my creamed macaroni exactly like she used to make
them.
Creamy, peppery and sweet.
(The meatballs are meat free.)
