Today - a big thank you!

I will get a new work soon. I am happy about the chance. Well, like everything it has two sides - I will have to stay somewhere else during the week. More when I got the written contract.

Today - Playing

Sometimes it would be better I could play more, taking life not so serious.

Please send me good wishes and prayers - they are welcome.

(These days/weeks it will decide where my professional life take me...)

Today - me time

Hubby just left for work. Yes, it is sunday.
I am alone at home and can do everything I like.
I think about some sewing. And I have to do some searching for things I need and I can not remember where I have them...

Today - give away

Today we have beautiful spring weather. Warm and sunny, bees busy.

And I decided to have a give away to celebrate - well, I allready celebrated with lox - roll and champagne, but I want to share. So just add a comment. You can be sure it will not be sparkling wine and lox (edit: salmon), but something lovely, too.

(Give away is closed - Ana and Sabine you can wait for the postman)

Today - earth wonder

You may think I did not get the theme. Well, you are wrong. I took this pic through the window of my sewing studio. A big willow is standing outside and there is a lot of coming and going at the moment.

Sharing with wonderland.

Wish you all a nice day, too.

Today - nothing much part II

Yes, today nothing much happened, too.

Ok, long form:
Yesterday I slipped getting in the shower, aua.
Today I got nosebleeding without any reason. Just when I had to leave. I managed to get to work, but I left some bloodstream in the underground. People moved away from me when they saw me bleeding. Nosebleeding stopped on my way to the central station and I was left with just a mild headache during the day.

Nothing much happened.

Walking on my own feet

Today we had a strike of the public transportation of Hannover so I had to walk myself.
Took a bit longer than usual, but I enjoyed nice spring weather.

Today - Antonin Dvorak: Stabat mater

Stadtkirche Celle, Stabat mater. A beautiful place for a beautiful concert.

Just around the corner leaving through the side entrance we saw this .

And that can get out of a night photo when my hubby is driving - modern art.

Everything changes...

... and I do not know what comes next.

I am brave or crazy...

... it depends how you want to see it. I have written these weeks more job applications than the years before. I want to settle in a job. I am grown out of one year here and one year there although I learned a lot during the last ten years I want to close this chapter of my life. It is time to start a new adventure that will last longer. I am ready.

A present I got from Waldemar Mirek today. Isn't it beautiful?
This one I painted last week. After last years owls this year is all about christian symbols.

This weekend was great with photoshooting possibilities. Yesterdays sheep and birds, today we saw some deer and the lovely lonely landscape and we visited Maria Laach on our way home.

Now I am drinking apple-juice from ecological regional Hunsrück fruits. Calming down, recharging my batteries before Monday.

Today - every family has a black sheep

Upps, white and nice, right. sheep, no. sorry, wrong picture...

Hubby said the black one is called Lily.

It was nice to be with the sheep. A blääh here a bääää there. Noisy but beautiful.

Today - feathers and fur

Both pics taken today in the Hunsrück area, Germany.

I have nothing much to say today. I have to think about some options, whereas none is something I would choose deliberatly. Think I need some meditation this weekend.

Early bird got lovely rolls

The good thing about going on my own feet to the main train station was that I managed to buy rolls at my fav bakery. Mhhh, I love their produces. And I was early enough to get my regular train. Later I had the chance to visit Celle and I said yes. So a nice time in Celle enjoying the flair of old houses. And I had luck the showers of hail and rain were only when I was inside. A lot like April on the weatherside here.

Today - strike

Today I can not take the Underground to get to the main station, there is a strike today. So I had to get up early and soon will go on my own feet to the main station.

Today - owls

These owls were designed by Gretelies and are printed on cotton. All you have to do is cut them out and sew them together and stuff them. So easy peasy work. I still have to finish the last part (closing by handsewing), but I wanted to share them today.

I wish everyone a great sunday!

Mail from Claudia

Thank you Claudia, I hope that not only the weatherforecast will be this way. Next week I will have an appointment with the big boss and will talk with him about my future. I am allready a bit nervous, coz all I know yet is that I will have to change location/job this year.

But look - there was still more in the letter:

Claudia makes the most beautiful things. Look what I got.
Can you believe Claudia made the Easter - bunny herself?
Yes, she is very talented.

Today - flowers of spring in my front yard

Today - Holländischer Stoffmarkt and more

Der holländische Stoffmarkt. A great possibility to stock on all sort of fabrics and sewing supplies. Today I behaved myself and did not buy very (!) much. (When the market is not in town I use the internet or visit limetrees, a beautiful shop here in Hannover). Be early coz it is really really crowded. I was a bit late today and I had to fight my way to get near the booths.

Holländische Kakaostuben -this is the best point to stop in the city for a hot cup of chocolate. When you order "Wiener Schokolade" you will get a cup with cream and dark chocolate splits on it, mmmhhh. And they have a lot of nice cakes on display, so you can see them before ordering one or two pieces.

Further on we go down the Georgstraße. There is Weitz, a place where you will find a lot of china, glasses, kitchenaides... they have a beautiful display inside...
The Georgstrasse is plastered with beautiful expensive shops, a variete and the new theatre. And on the opposite side you have the opera, and some old buildings like this one:
The street leads from the main city square (Kröpcke) to the Aegi.

This can bee seen at the Aegi. I love it that we have a lot of art in the city.

For lunch I wanted something fast and cheap- so I made pasta with
fresh veggies at home.

Today - you want to eat well in Hannover?

Then come and join us.
Our prefered restaurant here in Hannover is the chimú.
As a starter they serve bread with garlic butter.
Than we had a double chicken consomee.
And then it goes:


...salmon with vegetables and rice.

No leftovers - sorry. We had to behave ourselfes not to
lick our plates after we finished - so good was the meal.

Some lights on our way to the subway.

Earth wonders - flower

This is a green Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) I ordered online
some time ago. I love it. I think it is really beautiful.
Do you like it?

Joining in wonderlands Earth wonders.

Today - happy day!

Today - birds

I was playing with my new watercolours.
It was fun.

Today - play

This months word: play.
Before I knew the word I allready bought myself some colour to play along.
So playing is what I am doing.
