Today I took just a little walk around the corner

The weather today was great - a lot of sunshine, 
but I did not feel well. 
And all only coz of a little cold
not wanting to leave me. 
Holy shit, sometimes these little things 
can influence our life so much.

Spring walk

Today is sunday

And I decided to make muffins.
Pear muffins. 

It is quick and easy done and I had something nice for breakfast.

I am alone today.

My boyfriend left yesterday for his family.
I decided to stay here. I still or again have to fight with this bad cold/cough I got.

I wanted to do so much and now I do get only so little things done.

Structures - or what to do when you are facing changes

What can you do when you are facing changes?
New challenges you have to cope with?

A good help to cope with changes is when you
know what structures or rituals your life has. 

I myself love to eat regulary at 12.00 am a hot meal.
And I need regular short breaks for working fine.
And before going to bed I love to have some time for surfing the net or doing some needlework.
I love visiting local markets for buying my food like I did today.
I think you got it by now?

So when I have to adjust to a new situation I try to get as much as possible of these structures in my new life.

This really helps to feel safe in new situations. 

When had you to adjust to a new situation?
What did you do?

Life is short

On my way back by train I wanted to get some shoots from inside the train.
This is one of them.

It gives a good idea of time fleeing by.
A theme being discussed today.

What do you do when you remember your mortality?

Do you change something?
Do you believe you will die happy?

The weather gave a good overture for the ceremony

Later on my way through the bus windows again.
I felt more misserable than last time for the memorial service.
Today was the burial service for the ashes of my Granny.
We were less people and I felt much more emotion.

through a dirty bus window.

Violets with snow

Winter is back

When I woke up today I saw that winter is back.
It is snowing outside.

I am longing for spring.

Today I felt much better

I really slept in and through the day today.
When the sun beams came visiting me
I took a nice walk through my neighbourhood.
It was a day like in April: Sun, rain, snow, lightening, sun, ...
I have really problems to get something done.
So much reading, learning, projects... waiting.
And I sleep so much still.

Cold rainy and stormy weather

Best time to sit indoors with tea.
I have holidays and enjoy hot tea, reading and hope to get rid
of the cold that gives me troubles.

Of how much layers are you?
What are you for your family?
For your friends?
For your workmates?
For yourself?

Who is able to see the self behind the layers?

Who do you allow a look behind?

I feel like this today:

Taking antibiotics.
Hope to be better soon.

Did you have a chance to get to know your greatgrandparents?

I still remember my greatgrandma. She lived together with us until she died when I was twelve.
She had her special place in our family. Although she was very old when I was born I remember her teaching me how to clean potatoes when I was six years old. She was not afraid to teach me to use a sharp knife to get the peel of. She was the mother of four girls and one boy.
The boy died early but I had the change to get to know each of the daughters.

Old industry

Today was the memorial service for my Granny.
Afterwards was a getting together and over 50 people came.
Friends and relatives.
We had soup, bread and burial cake.
We went on the road soon after again.
And hurried here to the river Rhine.
We are visiting the parents of my boyfriend.
And when we went shoppimg for the next week we had this
nice relict of old industries on the other side of the street.
On this part here was a lot of industry in the old days.

Today I am in love...

Today I am in love with a new online store.
I love fabrics.
I love crazy funky unusual fabrics.
Today I found a new store.
And it had lovely new fabrics.
I had no chance to stop me.
I ordered some meters.
Well, I know I still have a lot of unfinished projects.
But the fabrics were so cute.

Death and spring

Sorry, I was so tired i did not get to blogging the last days.
I slept before I wrote something useful.

My Granny died on Wednesday. She was old.
She wanted to die. It was sad but o.k.
Last time I saw her she was depressed coz she was not
able to say what she thought. The words did not come.
And she knew that she did not find them.

And here spring starts.
The opposite to death.
Pure life.
Full energy.

Today the sun was shining again.
What a relief after so much rainy dark and dull days.
And it really seems to be the beginning of spring.
You can feel energy everywhere.
From the death brown ground the first green sprouts
are searching their way out to see the sun.
The trees bare from the winter take
the energy of the sun to get started again.
It is the time to start new.
It is the time to grow.


Yesterday was a rainy day. I did not like to watch out of the window.
Everything was dull, rainy, dark.
Everything? No, some meters away from my window is a tree.
And this one was not dark at all.
It was in flower - not thinking about the cold rainy dark day.

Rain, rain, rain

Ich bin müde. Müde von der Arbeit, dem schlechtem Wetter, der nassen Kälte.
Mir ist kalt und wird auch vor der Heizung nicht richtig warm.
Tee und warmer selbstgemachter Apfelkuchen haben nicht geholfen, das Einzige Ergebnis ist, dass ich jetzt auch noch Bauchschmerzen habe. Ich habe mal wieder viel zu viel gegessen. Warum muss selbstgemachter Apfelkuchen so lecker sein?

What do you love?

Today I write my first blog-post on my apple notebook.
It is working some days in the net but it took me some time to get used to it. 
I love being able to write in my bed like i do now. 

What do you love?
