Today - city walk

Today I went in the city.
Sushi and shopping waiting for me.
I bought the new book by Jorge Bucay.
I liked the two books I allready read written by him.
So now a new book is started.
The last weeks I have had nearly a marathon in reading.
I read more books than ever.
Not all were as great as i thought
- some were replaced onto the bookshelf after turning some pages.
Other were so great I could not stop reading.

How do you decide which book to buy?
I usual take a stroll through our local bookstore and look around on the display.
Or I look on the bookshelfes of other blogger for getting ideas...

I miss the energy...
Well, still holidays, but still I want to realize some projects.
And it takes time. I am so soon tired.

Romantic roadsides near the River Rhine.


Today my boyfriend came to Moers and we took a walk
near the river Rhine.
Here near Duisburg you have some nice beaches,
but the industry is near, too.

Life - ramblings

Our life - a place we can built.
Some times life seems hard. It seems not to fulfill our wishes.
I am on holiday - staying at the home of my friends parents.
People could call me crazy coz I did not fly in the sun.
When I started this holiday I was depressed.
My job seems not to get the flow I needed.
I was in sorrow what I will get in my job in future.
Well, staying here is really refreshing.
I get quiet time for myself. Not the to do this and do'nt that.
It is o.k. when I do my share of cooking and helping.
Nobody wants me to fill a frame. I can be how I am.
Here I feel like I can really built my life.

Time how fast are you moving...

It is really crazy coz I still feel like the beginning of autumn -
in the shops the Christmas cookies are allready on display.
Soon winter will come - but let us enjoy autumn before!

Today - Moers

Today I took the train to Moers.
It is a three-hours-ride by train from Hannover to Moers.

I got a seat and was able to use the time to finish a piece of cross-stiching.

The whole trip is to help a bit the parents of my boyfriend to cook etc.
I love to cook and it is a pleasure to cook for other people.

Today I had a passion with noodles.

For tomorrow I bought some lentils. I found an Asian food store in the city and could not resist to buy lentils and spices.

The day is grey until the sun starts to shine

Today I was in a bad mood. I stayed in bed very long. Felt unfocused. Had some hard time.
Went meandering through the blog world. And found some great pieces to sheer me up again.
You make the sun shine for me today - Thank you.

Today - holiday

A day off work.
Nothing to do than the things I wanted to do.
I missed some colours in yarn for projects I wanted to finish.
So I went in the city.

And I took lunch in the city.
There is a good and cheap turkish restaurant on my way home.
It was so warm today I decided to eat my Lamacun outside.

Atumn, how much I enjoy this time of the year.
I love to cook - and there is plenty of everything.
The market gives us lovely veggies, great meat...
So today was a feast of cooking and baking.
I started with muffins. A short time later a pumpkin soup
was cooking. And a chicken breat was marinated, waiting
for the oven to roast. Pumpkin soup with chicken Indian style, delicious.
Some time later a rich chocolate cake came hot out of the oven.
Oh, heaven how good are these treats...

At the moment

At the moment...

... it is nearly allready dark when I come back.
... autumn seems to start.
... I love the chill of the autumn weather.
... I could do without the rain showers.
... I am happy coz I had a good meal.
... I am tired coz I have had a long day at work.

Today - yellow

On the way to the artfair "Nadel und Faden" in Osnabrück.
Yellow was the colour in the city.

Nadel und Faden - I was never at this fair before.
A lot of shops for buying things for needlework.
I was a bit overwhelmed by the masses of people there.
It was sometimes not easy to get near to get some looks.

I do not like masses of people around me.
So it was a bit hard for me being there.

I did not buy as much as I thought i would buy.
Well, I found some nice handdyed silk for cross-stiching.
And I bought some woodcarved stamps for Christmas.
And I could not resist some gorgeous cross-stich designs.
I would love to start the first project tonight.

Saturday - nearly one week without blogging.

I did not feel well these last days.

And I was not in the mood for blogging.

What do you do when you do not feel well?

I have a special place I go to.

Here in the flat it is a place with my bed, my books and my fabrics.
A place that feels secure.

It really felt hard to leave this place each morning for work.

Me and a bunch of roses

Today I am alone at home.
Me and a bunch of roses.
Nothing spectacular. I am not Kevin alone at home.
Still it feels unfamilar.
Most times my boyfriend and I share our weekends.
He left yesterday after our breakfast to visit his parents.
His mother is in hospital and his father needs help.

I seem to get a cold.
Stress at work is something that gets
me sometimes hard and makes a cold.

It is hard to relax sometimes.
To stop worrying.

Today is saturday. Saturday means we eat rolls for breakfast.
The bakery we love is some streets away. 
Today it rained. Heavy downpour.
Well, it is saturday - so, yes - time for rolls.
And now the love story:
My boyfriend took his bicycle and got us rolls.
Hey, was he wet afterward.
But a saturday without rolls?
That would be no saturday.
