Best wishes for 2011


Fireworks Hannover 01.01.2011

Today - firework of bloom


I do not know how each of you celebrate the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011.
Here we celebrate it with a great meal and we watch the fireworks above the city.
The fire works started some time ago but very sparingly and it will get to a big
final just after midnight.

Quiet time between the years

It is quiet here. Snow is on the ground. The degrees are below zero °C.
Time to be quiet, too.
Sleeping, resting...

Rain on snow

Yesterday I decided to take today off from work.
I did not feel well (headache) and thought the best way to solve that
would be to stay at home today, sleep long and take everything easy...
Well, I really slept in - until 1pm!
And I did everything very slowly.
And the best is - i am feeling much better now.
I wraped the last Christmas parcel.
And did a bit of washing
and bought some things for the dessert
I will have to make tomorrow.
Family Christmas in the Hunsrück.
Great meals, fun, family, there is nothing better...

Today - waiting for warmer days

A snowy day (in bed)


Happily me - I went to the exhibitions yesterday.

Today I am ill - staying a big part of the day in bed.

Hope it will get better when I have had the operation.
It is scheldued on the end of January.

Today - winter solitude in the city







Hey, it is short before Christmas.
We have snow. And I stay in the city?

Yes, I do.

As you might have read before: I wanted to
attend three craft exhibitions in town today.
And I did a lot of walking through Hannover.
I miss walking actually, when I do not do it.
I started some months ago to walk five days
a week 40 minutes/day regulary.
Nothing special but I got used to it.
And you can find great spots in Hannover in
winter, too.

Today - the craft exhibitions



Yes, you read right. Today I visited three craft exhibitions.

One was designachten. They charged 3,-- € for entrance.

It is near the main train station. They had great music and a lot

of different stuff aviable.


The next was at the Faust in Linden Nord.

They charged nothing for entrance and had

nice stuff, too. And they offered me an expresso for free!

The third was a must.

I love the pics made by Sam Flowers, so I had to visit the

exhibition at Orike Muth.

It is a bit tricky to find. First time I had a bit trouble searching for the entrance.

This year I knew what I was looking for.

And I was not disappointed.

They have really great stuff.

Today - Bremer Weihnachtsmarkt









Bremen is a short train journey away from Hannover.
And they have a lovely Weihnachtsmarkt.
Bremen is very special at every season.
You find a lot of pretty old buildings.

Now imagine this old buildings,
christmas carols live performed,
hot wine or Feuerzangenbowle,
meeting good friends or family
having a good time.

Reflections




Hey, it seems I find no time for the net at the moment.


And you want to know the reason?

I am not proudly presenting: I am just lazy.
