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.
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.
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.
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?
