Trying to get as much as possible as good done as possible...

... and trying, trying very hard at it.

This time of the year is a very busy time. We have a lot of birthdays of friends and family.
A lot of preparations needed to be done. And Christmas is just behind the door.
Same at work, a lot is needed to be done in very short time.

I have to remember to take some breaks. Thinking what has priority and how can I do it. Taking tea breaks and short walks to find solutions. And I have to remind me that I should not miss the beauty around me.


Some beauty I saw in Hannover today.

The old town

Yesterday I took a stroll over the Christmas market in the old town.
Sunshine and unusual warm for a November day. Feeling a bit odd to buy Christmas presents. Knowing that it will be one of the last chances to do shopping before Christmas I tried to get all my shopping done.

What are your usual presents?
I bought mostly books.

Do you know these fairy tales?

I love these beautiful window decorations around Christmas time.

Light and darkness

Light and darkness - beautiful together.
Just darkness or just light would be dull.
Together they create our world.

Just coming from the birthday-party of a friend I found this light on the side of the street.
Giving me light and a feeling of warmth on my way home.
Hope you had such a light today,too.


On my way from work yesterday I got this view.

Everything was subtle.
No hard boarders - just a drifting into nowhere.

Today - water

Today I needed to take a quick walk in the autumn sun.
It was so splendid outside of my window - i just had to go.
First time since we moved I took the time to go to the Maschsee.
It is in an easy walking distance and it was really lovely.

Well, just a little much needed walk.
And it was really good!

What did you do today?

Today - pieces of red

Time running fast

Soon the next birthday will arrive.
Soon the Christmas market will open.
Soon Christmas will arrive.
Soon the next year will start.

Time is running by fast.

Do not forget to stop and take a break.
Look around you and enjoy your day.

Today - colours of my day

A colourful handmade bag from Claudia.

And some colours in the streets of Hannover.

Today - Before 6 am

It is still before 6am.
Everything is dark outside, the first cars are on the streets.
I will have to leave soon for work.
When I get back it will be dark again.

Today - my abc

Well, it was a bit shy.

Today - two in one

Today I got a lovely card from cococita. And she asked on her blog today what my fav writing supplies are. For every "normal" writing I love my triplus ball from Staedtler and for playing I like the black colour brush from Pentel.

Do you still write postcards and letters?

Sunday was the right word for today. Such a splendid cold but sunny autumn day. Just what I needed - a walk in the sun to feel better.

Today we had some sunshine...

... so I decided to take finally some pics from the treasures Claudia sent me.
Isn't the fabric cute? I think it will be hard to cut into it, so cute.
One letter made by Claudia is on the way to a friend allready.

Writing this I was interrupted by a sound. It was like a call for help but very unpronounced.
I went away from the notebook and looked what happened.

I found hubby with a lot of blood in the bathroom. I was scared. Well, he told me he has just a big problem with nosebleeding and needs some coldness for his neck and some papertowels for his nose. So the problem was solved in some minutes.

The bird story

Today I felt a bit better. Slept a lot and took my pills and drank some hot tea. So I decided to take a stroll to the boxes in my hubbies office.

I was ill when it was packing time - do you remember?

So my hubby did the most of the packing. And he packed my bank information. These informations I need to do my banking online. We did not know in which box they were and we will soon have to pay some bills. I thought I would have luck coz they were in his office at our old flat.

While I searched the boxes there was a sound. O.k. it was the heating system doing a bong bong sound when it got hotter. And then there was a little - - sounds like a bird trying to fly. This came from the wall with the former brick oven - now without the oven and a closed wall.
Could I have heard right - a bird in the wall? Yes, after some time the sound came again.
What to do?

I called the 112, our fire department. After some time two firemen came, but they could not reach the part where I heared the sound and no more sound could be heard.

So these story can have two endings.

The better one: The bird got out while I was in the kitchen brewing tea and I did not hear it getting out; or the worst one: in some days we will find it dead in our cellar where there is a little opening to our chimney.

Well, during these time I found my banking information, but I did not feel it as important than before to find it.

Today I am ill.
Something I could easily do without.
Not being able to do anything without a big amount of pain.

Some things that helped me through this day:

Lovely things from friends:
a calendar from Ana
and the lovely white duck from Claudia.
and heavy pills from my doc.

I am back

I am back in the net. Got the connection running again today, yeah.

No more searching for free net time outside.

Net at home, how much I missed it.

Piece by piece our home becomes more cozy.

Today I cooked the first lunch at home.

It got cold today, hot tea, trees loosing their last leaves...

Time to find a cozy space.
