this morning I woke up feeling a little sad..
today it was the last day "my" Swedish group were here.
we've been together since friday, almost 10-12 hours a day.
aaaaaaaaaaah, I did feel sad when a winked them goodbay this afternoon.
it really made as feel good! :))
and all the group, 30 persons were so happy to finally SEE the lake,
(it has been raining for the past 2 days),
they jumped up on their bikes and made a biketour around the Rocca! :)
I met them there with the 3 persons that dind't want to bike, they rather made a walk.
look, what colour the lake had! incredibile.
my Suedes just stood there, looking down on the glittery water, feeling good.
I told them some things about the place, but not many listened ;)
even worse than the German pupils I usually take around :)))
paying no attention at all, just enjoying standing in the warm sun..feeling happy!
it was hard to leave the Rocca,
but our lunch was waiting and also their Italian time was running out.
after lunch, it was time to leave.
I must admit, I felt a little bite sorry, well, a lot sorry seeing them leave.
we had a great time together, and I do hope they will be back!
pickled bell pepper and onion
this recipe was given me by Alda,
we (Marta-blogger friend) and I
made a "homemade" preserving course in
we exchanged recipes, making ours, sharing with the other two
try one and others, and in the end divided our jars equally between us!
we had a lot of fun, in November we will meet again..doing marinades! :))

1 tsp of dill seeds (Anethum graveolens)

today, I didn't feel stying home. yes, I'm very very tired, but I felt a little sad...
so I needed to do some trekking.
together with Simoo and Laura we went Refuge Chierego
to have a cup of hot cinnamon tea and a piece of apple pie
(must give you the recipe ;) )
I'm very lucky having friends so available,
leaving everything and coming with me! :)
but, it was worth it..
the clouds, the sun, the mountain...made us feel good, all three of us!
