Just behind the big lake with the party there are some smaller lakes. These lakes are great for swimming. Today I went swimming in the Dreiecksteich. It is beautiful there. I found a spot with some stones to get into the lake and I could see big dragonflies mating above and smaller ones just flying by while I swam.

These days

Summer is here. And in summer Hannover celebrates a lakeside party. For three weeks there is a lot of beer, music and food to be consumed near our artificial city lake. I decided to go there yesterday in the evening. And well, it was crowded. I decided to go to the part where they sell Guiness and Kilkenny and had a glass of Kilkenny. Short holiday in the city with a beautiful sunset above the lake.

Allready one week gone by. Some days ago I sent my first selfmade jersey t-shirt to my sister. It came out great for a first one, hope she likes it. I used some fabric from lillestoff. Lillestoff is located near to my hometown and produces beautiful colourful jersey. 

Today we have sunshine and it is still nice cool outside so I did allready some gardening in the morning. 

Now I will run to the postoffice to send away a birthday card. I painted the envelope yesterday.

Today I had lunch with an old friend of mine. She is really old and has had allready some small strokes, but does not want to move out of her flat.

How long do you travel to work?

I have had everything from a ten minutes bike ride to a 1 1/2 hours underground, train and busride. When it was over 1 1/2 hours I stayed during the week and went home over the weekend.

Now I am happy I just have to drive 40 minutes to work (one way) or more when the traffic is bad. I can use three different trains to get to work and that takes 20 minutes to 50 minutes and some walking. So I am on my way about two hours each day alltogether.

Today I drove to work. I decided to drive one day per week to work so that it feels normal to drive. I had my licence for years, but did not drive. When I started again I was really scared, I do not want to be so scared again.
