On Monday we decided to go out. We needed fresh fruits and vegetable and after that we wanted to take a walk in the park. Trixilie was hiding in my jacket pocket all the time. It was only when we were in the park that she left my jacket pocket and flew around cheerfully. As soon as another person came along, she hid again.
That surprised me, because on the blog you can see her on some pictures. So why was she hiding in public? When I told her she could show herself in public, she shook her head very fast, so that her plaits danced around her. Her answer was: “Fairies don´t present themselves to every human – just specific humans and we pick them out ourselves. Pictures are different. There are so many books with pictures of fairies, that it is okay.” With these words she took off and flew into a hedge around which some butterflies flew.
Fairies seem to be a bit idiosyncratic. Well, pictures are allowed, but I must not (yet?) make videos of her and she doesn´t like to present herself in public. Okay…
On Tuesday Trixilie had a lot of raspberries once again for lunch. When I asked her, what she enjoys to eat, she took my pen and tried to draw it.
Number 1 are raspberries (of cause 😉 ), which are followed by rainbows, broccoli, carrots, grapes and blueberries.
Ahaaaaa… the meaning of eating rainbows is to eat colourful, to eat fruits and vegetables from every colour (violet, red, orange, yellow, green and white). Yes, this sounds delicious 🙂
On Wednesday Trixilie and I were shopping, once again. Yes, the raspberries were all gone 😉 In the store we saw a Mummy with her daughter. They put a lot of pink things with “happy birthday” prints in the shopping trolley. At home Trixilie asked me what all these pink things were. I guessed that the mommy had organised a birthday party for her daughter and told Trixilie how humans in my surrounding celebrate their birthday and how I had celebrated my birthday two weeks ago.
Trixilie started to smile and told me very excited how fairies celebrate their birthdays in Berrytholdy: They ALWAYS celebrate birthdays, it doesn’t matter how old the fairy becomes. The birthday is a great day. The family, friends and fairies come together at a place, which consists of a lot of different mushrooms. Little note: Trixilie whished that I draw this place for her book
Every guest gives the fairy a letter, in which all good characteristics the guests sees in the birthday fairy are mentioned. The birthday fairy reads every letter out load, so all the fairies can enjoy the lovely words. After that (and often already at the same time) the fairies nibble of or eat the mushrooms. Trixilie thinks this way of celebrating a birthday is big fun. I think such letters sound like a wonderful idea. In the future I will write and send such letters to people who are important to me, regardless if it is their Birthday.
After Trixilie saw that I posted photos and comments on facebook, twitter and instagram, she wanted to do the same. Because she wants to tell you her brand-new news. That is why I set up some accounts for her and now I am also allowed to share my smartphone with Trixilie 😉
I get the impression Trixilie posts even more than I 🙂 It seems that she enjoys to communicate with short messages and photos to the outer world. Trixilie asked me to tell you, that she would be delighted if you follow and write her directly. You can follow her on
and facebook (she will use my ArtVego Account to post on facebook)
Did I mention that fairies are idiosyncratic? It seems especially this little one: she doesn´t like to present herself personally in public, but I am allowed to take and publish pictures of her and she posts like crazy… really cute 😉
On Friday we had spaghetti with tomato-sauce for lunch. We cooked the sauce with fresh tomatoes, orange juice, onions and cinnamon. It was really delicious. Here is the recipe: orange-cinnamon-tomato-sauce
As we cut tomatoes and onions, she sat down on the board from time to time and “tasted” if the tomatoes are good enough. And yes, the tomatoes were good enough every time 😉
Because Trixilie is a bit too little for my dishes, she sits on the plate every time. That is why she always cleans herself from head to foot. While I wash my hands, she jumps into the sink and goes completely under the jet of water, dries herself off with a fluffy towel and flies directly onto the plate. So that is what she also did with the spaghetti and tomato-sauce. This time she sat on the edge of the bowl, took spaghetti by spaghetti and nibbled them.
Of cause Trixilie was over and over blotted with tomato-sauce, which she thought was really funny 😉
At night from Friday to Saturday I heard some kind of drumming again and again. It sounded very close but it was really quiet… Because this sound made me a bit nervous, I turned on the lights and I saw only Trixilie sleeping in her bed. Isn´t she sweet 🙂
The sound was gone. But I had hardly switched off the light and lay down in my bed, I heard the sound again. I turned on the lights again and saw and heard nothing which could make this sound. This time I took my smartphone into my bed and waited. As I heard the sound I took a photo in the direction where the beat came from and couldn’t believe what I saw…
Yes, there was Trixilie rope skipping with a leftover spaghetti. Oh boy… Don´t invited a little fairy in your home, when you like to sleep at night 😉
On Saturday I met some friends and came home late at night. Trixilie stayed at home this time. On Sunday I slept late… I mean, I slept later than usual. That means, that I didn´t get up at 7 o´clock in the morning 😉
About 8am Trixilie sat down besides my ear and sang “happy birthday”. That was soooooo cute my eyes got teary. I have never been woken in such a sweet manner 🙂 But it wasn´t my birthday.
As I walked with her into the kitchen (because she desperately wanted to show me something), I saw a birthday-fruit-gateau. I was really happy about it. A gateau completely made of fruits, vegetable and nuts. Fantastic!
In the morning as I slept, Trixilie sneaked into the kitchen and prepared this birthday-fruit-gateau very quietly.
I asked Trixilie why she had prepared this birthday-fruit-gateau, because my birthday was two weeks ago. She smiled all over her face and said, that she just felt like it.
Fairies are so cute 😉
The gateau was so beautiful it almost felt wrong to cut it into pieces, but as both of us were very hungry we finally did and enjoyed the delicious fresh taste. It was fantastic.
With the gateau I also got a letter which was written by herself. Really sweet.
Translation of the letter:
I like at you:
– the colourful ties
– the glitter dust
– the sparkling jewellery
– your laugh
– your happiness
– you cook delicious food
– your warmth
– your kindness
– you draw my book
And since we were celebrating a fairy birthday the mushrooms should of course not be missing. On Saturday we bought these on the market, because Trixilie desperately wanted to eat mushrooms. Fairies are very clever 😉
With these mushrooms we made a whole grain penne pasta with a mushroom-sauce which consisted of brown mushrooms, onions, almond cream and basil. Veeeeery delicious 🙂
The whole Saturday Trixilie and I enjoyed the unbirthday, ate fruit-gateau, had a walk in the park and lay in a meadow (oder lay on the lawn), where Trixilie flew around with some butterflies again.
So the last week ended very relaxing 🙂
Trixilie and I wish you a great week.
We wish you a lot of fun.
P.S. from Trixilie: eat rainbows 🙂
