yesterday we where fullmoon trekking,
the full moon is tomorrow,
but the 4-5days before and also 2-3 after
the moon shines very bright.
it is, of course very important to choose a cloudy free night,
so you can se the moon and be illuminated by it's shinieness.
you can be surprised how easy it is to see in the "dark",
with the moon hanging above your head shining like a huge alogene lamp! :))
we used our headlight only in the woods,
where the trees stands thick together.
well, when we got out on the cliff above San Vigilio...
with Garda beneath our feet, we just where stunned.
here the view of San Vigilio from our place, the day before.
the moon was behind us,
so no glittery path was seen,
but anyway the black Gardalake water was moving,
shimmering in the dark.
all the lake side was illuminated and the lights mirror in the lake.
unfortunately I was without camera and
simoo had some difficulties to make photos with hers
..so..no photos can be shown.
it is a pity, beacuse it was all so spectacular!
but we have an appointment in June to go back up there,
and I will be much more organized!
Until last year the 29th of March was a very sad day for me.
today it is 9 years since my friend Silvia left us. there is a song that reminds me of her,
it is "don't explain" - Nina Simone singing.
it is diffcult to explain why that song, perhaps the words, the music or Nina's voice.
I don't know but I do love that song.
since last year,
since I know Ivy,
the 29th of March have a nicer, much nicer meaning for me.
Today it is her birthday!
soo, happy birthday dear Ivy!
these jellies are for you.
home made blackcurrant jellies for Ivy!
300ml of black currant syrup
200ml of water
10gr of agar agar
put syrup and water in a small pot, heat up.
when it is boiling add the agar agar and mix well.
let cook for 5-7min and then pour in a alluminium mould
(or in small individual moulds).
let cool over the night.
the next day,
toss out the jelly from the mould and cut in small squares or
use a biscuit cutter to make different shapes.
roll in sugar before serving.
conserve in a cool place
(put in a box i with a piece of baking papaer between every layer)
not in the fridge.
they are delicious :))
this is the sky this evening.
deep blue for you Ivy!
