Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
I’m so inspired over Natasja and her husband’s cozy and charming cafe Casa Barella in La Cala/ Mijas that I wanted to have my own tiny little private in my backyard 😊.
I can, of course, visit Casa Barella, and when I have the possibility to visit Casa Barella I do that too. But I haven’t any car at the moment so it’s a bit more difficult to just drop by the cafe now and then 😊. I need to take the train and then the bus, and when I’m working closely every day it’s, unfortunately, takes a bit of time this travel from Caravajal to La Cala.
I need to admit that Casa Barella it’s much more cozy and with an other atmosphere then in my “private” cafe,- but something is better then nothing 😊. And now I have “created” “something”, a cozy private cafe in my backyard 🥰.
The first month here I haven’t done anything in the front of the house, where my private little cafe is now. It’s just the last days I have had energy to “create” an welcoming atmosphere here. But Rome was not built on one day either, so good things takes time to create 😊.
It felt a bit better and also more welcoming now when the entrance to the home is created on a cozy and welcoming way, as well as with an relaxing atmosphere around. And I like that my guests, my family and friends feel welcome to me and my home 🥰.
And I have already have some guests in my “cafe” too 😊. Of course all and everything I serving in “my cafe” is for free, but there’s not very much on “the menu” to choose between. You get what I make and serve 😊. Well,- in general it’s a bit more “freedom” to choose between what you want to drink then eat in “my backyard cafe” 😅. But when it comes to the food,- it is what it is,- and this week it has been homemade Norwegian waffles and homemade Norwegian apple cake muffins,- that’s it 🥞. But I can promise you, and also reccomend you, it’s so much more homemade food to choose between in Casa Barella. There is actually a perfect menu to pick between so many great and tasty food and dishes 😊.
What will be on “my” menu next week? I have actually no idea yet, but in general I think it will be something homemade from probably some of my Norwegian recipes 😊.
It’s actually quite nice to sit in “the backyard cafe” in the afternoon when the sun is shining and it’s a bit hot around the corners 🌞. It’s a bit more cooling air, and much of the reason is enough because the sun only comes to a few hours, and the surrounding brick walls are cooling and create a cooling atmosphere.
But in the evenings it can be a bit of mosquitos, to be honest. The solution is to find some lemon and claves, or use some lemon candles, or just lemons, but in general I actually “run up” to the roof terrace instead in the evenings 😊.
It’s really nice to sit there during the evenings,- I will show you a bit more from the roof terrace an other day 😊. We can’t take it all and everything at ones 😊.
I can’t understand how lucky I’m so have got this incredibly possibility to renting this nice and cozy holiday home with it’s own typical Spanish atmosphere and “touch”. And all the different possibilities it’s in and around the home as well as in the area 🥰.
And little by little I’m going to show you around in this home as well as in the area 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡
See you soon 😊
I like to create it nice and cozy around me,- and this week I have had the time to “create” the entrance to my home welcoming and cozy 🥰. I have in a way created a tiny area like a private little cafe in my backyard area as well 😊. And I have even had already guests in my “cafe” too 😊.
