Still rainy


Today we have gallons and gallons of rain again.
I just took a short walk outside - I went to the artist shop -
needed some colours and other things.
I am a happy girl coz this lovely shop is nearby.
I like to go there and look at the great colours, pencils,
papers...
I could stay there for hours and sometimes I do just that.
This pic I took on my way home from the shop.
I like the colours and structure of this house.
It looks just great - I would love to live there.

One pic a day



Well, I try.

See the scary pic above?

I took the pic on my way home from the mall.

A short part of my way goes through a park, dark at night.
Hey, do not be scared. I am carefull and I use this path only when I know there are still some people going to University or going for a run.

Crazy

You can call me crazy, but yesterday I bought myself a French journal:
Marie Claire idees. You see - I can not get the name right coz I do not know how to type the accents. My French is terrible. I started with English as first foreign language, then Latin as second and French was only third ( I took it coz I wanted to stop learning Latin, that was the deal).

A lot of fun to sneak through it and get ideas for new projects or redecoration.

Do not let something like bad memories of school lessons stop you from seeking fun.

Today I will get a book in Swedish - do you know Tilda design?
And I do not know Swedish at all.

What are you doing just for fun today?

used her automatic flaslight.

Misty day


Today we have rain, everything soaking rain.
We wanted to go into the museum but it was so
crowded we decided against it and went back home.
I made some chicken legs today, roasted with onions, spices
and honey. A great dish to feel well during these times.
Now I drink some hot tea and eat chocolate while
surfing the net. Best time to stay indoors.

Sparkling apple moments



I got my first apple notebook today.
Hope to get it working soon.
Feels like Christmas and birthday together. :-)

apple and beer

Today I went to the apple store to look for a notebook. Well, next time I have to get there earlier - they close allready at 6.00 pm. But I took the challenge to buy myself a bottle of beer on my way home. I believe I can not finish the bottle today - it contains 2 litre of lovely dark beer from a little brewery.

Who are you and how many? An interview




Lily, you told us in your last post something about yourself.
How much of it is true?


I believe you never ever can say that something is true.
Truth is about believing and your view. It is alltimes subjective.
Reality is I moved out from my parents at the age of twenty into
a city I did not know one soul. I married when I was 22.
And I got divorced at the age of thirty.



What is your daytime-activity?

I am doing a fulltime job during the day. When I have some free moments I love to read, cook, eat or create something.

What would you love to do when you would have more free time?

I would love to travel and write a travel blog.

Have you written a diary before joining bloglandia?

I started to write a diary at the age of twelve. I stopped after some days coz my older sister read it and made a fun of it. Than I started again at the age of 30, but stopped after some weeks again. Writing my blog is much more fun and I try to write regulary. I would love to write on a daily basis but sometimes I am so tired I sleep before I manage to write a post.

You post pics on your blog, tell us a bit more about it.

I bought myself a canon digital ixus 55 some time ago. At the moment I am still a beginner, but I am proud that each pic on my blog is taken by myself. I try to find each day something nice with my canon and I can say that my life is much brighter since I look everywhere for nice pics.

Little presents



How sparkling is your day to day life?

Do you take time to dream?
Do you take time to look?
Do you take time to hear?

Or do you let yourself being pressed by time?

I want to tell you a story. A story of love, despair and crime.
Well, perhaps the story will develop in an other direction.

Imagine a young girl, fresh from school, lovely blonde hair, afraid beeing alone in a big city. First time moved out from home, no household skills, a new job, no friends. She soon got to know people but was not able to make friends. She tried to live her life in books, reading a lot, but otherwise she felt very lonely. She wanted to enjoy life but met the wrong people. She tried new things but was very soon tired and prefered soon to stay at home most of the time. Her life did not went well. All it consists of was work, books and loneliness. She met a boy, married but the loneliness stayed. She got divorced and still was lonely.

When you would met this girl today you would wonder - her life is colourful and nice.

It's me.

My day today


Today morning I seemed to be late, but I was really
very very late. I missed my train to the main station
and got some extra time to get the pic above but did
not have enough time at the main station for buying
myself some proper breakfast.
Well, not much to worry here, I could still loose some
pounds and will not be blown away by the next storm.
After a busy day at work (I still came in time, lucky me)
I was greeted by this nice pic at the train-stop.
I could not resist to get my camera out. Well, I got some
remarks about taking photos from clouds.

When I was on my way home I met this worried girl.
She seems not to like the change of the weather.
All pics taken today during my course through the day.

Snow melted by rain

Today in the morning everything was white outside
but rain melted the white soon.
Later it rained very heavy -
I believe it was the heaviest rain by the time I went home.
I was totally soaked with cold water.
I had to change clothes
(well, they were as wet as directly out of the washing-machine,
just did not smell so good).

Please pray


Today will be the first day of chemo.
Please pray for the mother of my boyfriend.
Thank you.

Leave your daily routine...


Painting on a house, Hannover/Linden by Ulysses 09/91

Today I went to the bakery on a new route.
And I was greeted by this lovely trumpet player.
It was a small side road nearby. I am often in the area,
but have never before seen this paiting.
It reminded me of a good film with great music:
Buena Vista Social Club by Wim Wenders.

My feelings today:




This fish describes my feelings very good.


I do not know the artist, but i had to smile, when I saw it


on my way to the market in a window.


Today was a grey and brown day.



Yesterday we got more news about the health of the mother
of my friend. It were sad news. The lung cancer is aggressive and
she will have to endure a very agressive sort of palliative chemo.

These eyelashes...


I want to cuddle and kiss this little being.
Please let us forget, that we will eat it
- next year.

Today was a heavy day...



Today was a heavy day in private life.

My boyfriends mother was diagnosed with uncurable cancer. The last months we were in sorrow coz his Dad was very ill. His mother seemed to be healthy and just tired from the sorrow and managing her life.

Embracing solitude

I have to admit...

... that I am an addict.

No, not drugs, sex and rock'n roll.

But I can not resist books fresh from the print.

Today I had to go to the bookstore - just getting some small pages.
And I came out with two big bags - heavy with books.

Do not fear...


I love the word for today:
Fürchte Dich nicht;
denn ich bin bei dir und will dich erretten,
spricht der HERR.
(Lukas 19,10)
Do not fear,
I am with you and will save you,
speaks the Lord.

Little things

Today we have snow again


When I woke up today everything outside was covered
in white again. For the moment winter is back.
