Something nice on a not so nice day


Today I want to share this pic taken last sunday in the Hunsrück.
Taken on a sunny day with nice people around.

My day today was not so much fun.

I had to visit the dentist and well, I am not finished yet, although I sat on the chair for more than 3 1/2 hours. Poor me!

Sunday driving



Today we went from Moers to the Hunsrück.
We attended a first Kommunion of a relative of my
boyfriend, saw a lot of relatives and had a good time.

Back on the road halfway back home our car decided he has had enough.
We went to the side and called the yellow angels, the ADAC.
And after a long time waiting one came and got our car going again.
That was great but we had to go by low speed to be sure to get home.
Now it is allready Monday morning.
I need to get some sleep.

On the road again


On the road 25.04.2009


Today we were on the road again.

It was a fast run down here.


During the trip I was several times tempted to take a pic.

Great landscapes, great buildings seen through the

sidewindow, but most times I was not fast enough

and I missed the pic. The car was running fast.

Saturday morning



Saturday morning.
Day with enough time for a proper breakfast and the newspaper.
Day without hurrying for work.
Day with time for myself.
Freedom.

A quick look in my box of treasures



I love to buy things with nice colours and decors.
I have a little box filled with a lot of lovely things 
mostly from Bänderei Kafka and Farbenmix.

Today I finished a project...


... that laid a long long time in my basket with unfinished projects.
I love the fabric from Westfalenstoffe with the angel 
and the blue white red fabric from Tilda.

Lilac


Pic taken yesterday in the Berggarten, Hannover.

Colours, colours, colours everywhere.
And warm sunshine blessing the skin.
Everything still fresh, still new.
Born from the muddy earth again,
awaken by the first warm beams of the sun.

Berggarten Hannover



Today I took my camera with me to the Berggarten.
It is a lovely place in Hannover, part of a great garden system.
And it is just some minutes away from my home.

I took some pics of the flowers there I will share the next days.

Have you ever seen such a sound-project?


Yes, under this odd grey thing is a cd-player and music is playing.
It can be found near the central station in Hannover, Germany.
Best time to hear music is early morning. During the day there are so much other noises...

Love?



What is love about?

With whom are you in love?

What do you do for your love?

When do you really know it is love?

I got to know love these days.



Easter Monday

Easter Sunday

Today I am away from home. After a three hour trainride I arrived together with my boyfriend at his parents home. We visited his Mum in hospital and soon we will enjoy a selfmade pizza.
I love to make pizza. Just now it was bit difficult to get the dought done coz I had no fresh yeast at hand and the dried yeast i found in the cupboard was old. Well, I hope it will work o.k.
And I allready found fresh garlic, onions and cheese. It will become yummi. And I have a great beer waiting, too. Here in this part "Altbier" is very common. It is a dark beer but not the children version of dark.

Here my recipe for an easy pizza dough:

per person use:

125 g plain flour
1/4 piece of fresh yeast
a bit of salt (optional)
and water

Put the flour in a large mixing bowl and make a little hole in the middle to put the crumbled yeast in. Add some water. Mix well.

It is a bit tricky to get the right amount of water. I start with a bit and add more and more until i get a smooth dough. The dough has to have a "good" feeling. It should easily go off your hands and not crumble. This is the tricky part. I needed several tries until I got the feeling for the dough. But it is worth trying.

Now you can wait 15 minutes and add some salt.
Or just leave the salt out - your dough will get another structure but I like it this way, too.
Wait until the dough doubled and use it as the body for your pizza.

Preheat the oven to 220° C.

Put something like cheese, veggies or whatever you fancy on it and put it in the oven.
It smells great when it is finished. And the taste is great, too.

Cakes


Today I did some baking again.

I love to bake.

When I was younger I often used prepared baking packs.
These stuff you had only to add eggs, milk and butter.
Nowadays I prefer to use the old familar recipes.
I love the ones you can change depending on what is in your cupboard.

Today

It is just this short moment between yesterday and tomorrow.
It is not more and all we have.
Do not look back or forth.
Stay focused at the moment.
Do what is needed to be done.
Do not worry and everything will be fine for you 
today.

Just be

There is no need to be perfect.
There is no need to be loved by everyone.
There is no need to get everything done.

Just be - and everything is perfect - you will see.
