Just tired today.

Nothing special - just the usual.

Today nobody could not stop me from looking at this beautiful sky.

There was nothing more important than to enjoy this

moment of beauty.

What was your moment of beauty today?

a guessing game - ein Rätsel

What is this?

Was ist das?

When you are the first one to leave the right answer in the comment section I will send you a little present.

Wer zuerst die richtige Antwort errät und als Kommentar hinterläßt, bekommt von mir eine kleine Überraschung zugesandt.

Beendet - A charmed Life lag fast richtig - und das lasse ich gelten.

Where are you my creative muse?

Where are you hiding?

Sometimes it is so easy to meet you -

we meet in the city or in the forest and play.

During other times I look for you and can not see you.

Everything seems so ordinary and dull without you.

How much I miss you during these times.

Today I was lazy. I slept long, made some lunch,
baked some cookies, ate them...

Nothing special, I just enjoyed being healthy again.

I am in my bed, typing on my laptop and hearing the poof pooong of the fireworks outside.
I know there is music, too. Well, it is to far away to hear the music, but the rhytmic poof and poong gets here. My hubby is doing ironing next door. A hot black tea and the internet.
I feel cozy here.

How fast news can travel when they are bad

Today I called my sister and she told me that my cousin is in hospital. I have not seen or heard from him for more than ten years, but this bad news came within days. He was the one I loved to talk during the long birthday celebrations of my childhood.
Somehow we lost contact during the years. He moved away. I moved away. We were not longer interested in coming to family birthdays. Last time I saw him was at the funeral of our Granny.
We had a lot of fun and laughter at the funeral, our Granny had died at an old age and was a funny crazy person who lived her life. But afterwards I saw a lot of my relatives not again.
You know - we are only meeting for funerals and marriages now. And nobody married (well, I did but without a party so there was no get together) , but I would prefer a marriage to a funeral to see my relatives again.

13. Hannoversche Pflanzentage

Yesterday I went to visit the Hannoversche Pflanzentage.

It was great - good weather, a lot of plants and my loved apple juice.

Like alltimes I could have bought so much. Such lovely plants.

Well, all I could do was to enjoy it there. (My garden is so little...)

But enjoying I did, and I saw an old neighbour from my childhood.

Hope to see you next year there, too.

1st day of May = day of work

The first day of May is celebrated as day of work here in Germany.
It is an offical holiday and there are speeches to be heard and so on.

My hubby is going on the 1st of May on a walk with his friends from university.
I joined him several times, but hey, they walk about 25 km and
I am not good in walking (or any sports) so today I decided to stay home.

My health is improving, I had some nose bleeding this night and
still some coughing but in general I feel much better than at the
beginning of the week.

For anyone staying in the Hannover area next weekend:

When you like plants visit the Hannoversche Pflanzentage.
They take a fee of 4 Euro/person and it is really worth the price.
I went there several times the last years and altough I never bought much-
we do not have a garden - I enjoyed it each time.

Another enjoyable thing is to watch the marathon.
Be sure to check before which streets are closed due to the event.
