Of Embroidering, Knitting, Crocheting… and Working


I really like my job. Some years ago I made a choice, and I really chose my job. I am a teacher. Before this, I had worked in two factories, in the export sales offices. Maybe I could have had the chance to climb the ladder, or not because I am always a woman and, all around the world, women seem to always have to make a choice: family or a really good paid job. Anyway, I don’t want to talk about it now.

The fact is: I would like to push the ‘pause’ button. Unfortunately, I have so many hobbies and I miss them. I like embroidering, knitting, crocheting, reading books… Maybe I was born in a different era and then I was ‘time moved’ to 2018. When I was in the High school, I was considered a little bit strange, due to the fact that I so much loved those (so considered) feminine/ladies’ pastimes. wool-480550_1920

To be honest, I used to so envy those women that could keep on knitting or everything else. And this because of their wealthy conditions, mainly. They don’t need to go to work, they have the possibility to stay home and knit and read as much as they want.

But now, I wouldn’t really give up my job or my personal independence, even if I don’t earn a huge salary. Only, I am so tired, that I would like a year off, where I could devote my time to my hobbies. It would be so nice to wake up in the morning and knit. The next morning create a new curtain. And so on. But with the certainty that after book-1760998_1280one year of rest I would go back to my beloved working world.

I am only a bit tired.



Fossili dietro casa

Sharing is caring. And moreover is giving the possibility to discover new wonderful blogs. This one is all in Italian, so interesting! Written by a great teacher for her students and not only. Everytime I learn something new. I wish I had had such a Science teacher… unfortunately for me Science was only books, books, reading thousand of pages, so I really hated it. I am starting to appreciate it only now, after my 40.
So enjoy! Mainly if you are Italian.


I fenomeni esogeni, ovvero gli agenti atmosferici quali vento, precipitazioni, acque torrenziali, vento ma anche sbalzi di temperatura, modellano la parte esterna della crosta terrestre modificando nel tempo il paesaggio che ci circonda. Essi erodono le formazioni rocciose sgretolandole pian piano, generando detriti che vengono lentamente trasportati verso valle da ghiacciai e fiumi. Ciottoli e ghiaie, ovvero i detriti più grandi, possono originare zone alluvionali, mentre limo e argille raggiungono i cosiddetti bacini di sedimentazione, depositandosi sul fondo dei mari o dei laghi. L’accumulo di detriti può comprimere gli strati inferiori, espellere acqua dagli interstizi presenti tra granelli di sabbia solida e cementare i sedimenti; così masse di roccia che milioni di anni prima costituivano montagne, si sono trasformate in enormi cumuli di detriti che, in questo processo chiamato diagenesi, si sono trasformati in nuova roccia, la roccia sedimentaria.

In questo processo è possibile che la carcassa di un…

A vintage tray

When I found this tray among many other garage long forgotten and stored in a corner things, I thought to throw it away. But then (let’s think about our poor Planet!) I had a great idea. What do you think about this result? Well, maybe the fact that it is quite usual here to have a glass of red wine at lunch maybe has helped me a lot. However, I could have done it with… White stones from Tagliamento River?
