Although it is not official autumn - the weather feels a lot like autumn today.
Rain, wind, although still a bit warm during the day.
I am very productive in my kitchen these days. Well, other things get a bit out of focus. I wanted to take pics, to create with fabric - well, my time is limited to 24 hours a day and some of them are needed for sleep.
Next week I will have the possibility to drive around a bit by car. Although I am still sometimes a bit scared to drive I love the beautiful landscapes around Bremen. I love the flat landcapes where you can see so far. The beautiful old farmhouses. The people speaking in the same way I love to speak. Seems in so many ways that I have come home. Well, I was born in a landscape with sloopy hills - living my first 19 years near a river and sorrounded by hills - although it was home it never felt how I thought home has to feel.
Today I was on the farmer market and a lot of my time in our little kitchen preparing food.
At the moment there is so much beautiful seasonal food aviable. For lunch I made a salad with smoked salmon, three different kinds of tomatoes and salad of course. And for dinner a homemade frittata is waiting. Hey, do not forget to mention a blueberry-cake for the times we may get hungry in between. And cookies are made for hubby to enjoy over the course of the next week.
Today I was invited to a chabat ceremony at chabat. I am not jewish, and I have never been to chabat before. So I was curious.
Well, my friend knows me and told me a date half an hour before it started so I reached it a bit early.
It is a very orthodox thing there. Men and women are sitting separated in divided areas and women do not see the torah, coz it is in front of the men. Oh my, tis time it was more than ten years since I last used Hebrew. I have nearly forgotten everything. well, some songs sounded familar and it was a very friendly atmosphere. And afterward we had all together (men and women in one room) a good dinner of kosher food. My fav was the salmon. Not to forget wine, bread and songs in Hebrew and Jiddish to celebrate.
Today I made a pumpkin dish for dinner after work. It is now baking in the oven to be enjoyed later. And now I will help my sis to clean her house from the things she has collected over the years. It will take some time, I guess.
To Big to go into just some letters on this side.
To Big to be described in words.
I do Not know Where it will lead me.
I just know that I want to Travel more.
To Try New Things - with the Risk of Doing Wrong.
Like my First steps on this iPad.
To work with numbers.
Trying To Enjoy every moment.
well, there Might be Pain and sorrow, but I believe a Lot of Joy, too.
Today it was said to be the hottest day of the year in Germany. We were enjoying the sunshine in the Hunsrück area together with our family. And the great thing was we had some kind wind blowing so we did not feel the high temperature so badly. And the area is really beautiful in high summer - all pics are from there today.
After a short 3 1/2 hours drive ( hubby driving a lot 230 km/hour were it was allowed) we reached our very hot hometown Hannover. Seems it was not to hot for me coz I made two batches of hubbies loved cookies ( no, not all for him . One batch will be my breakfast during the week!).
At the moment I see a lot of colour - the world around me bursts in beautiful colours. The weather is allready having an early scent of autumn. Being cold and rainy mostly. Once I thought I saw allready snowflakes outside.
I coloured my hair today. Being a bit crazy but I coloured it with a permanent colour. What colour do you think I tried?
The one who asks is the one who gives the direction.
My word for August is "ask".
I will try to ask more.
I started on Friday when I was told they offer me the job but to terms I do not want. I asked them if they have allready looked after one possibility I had in mind. I do not know if it will change the outcome. But I asked nonetheless. I will get the answer in some days time.
Hey, I am really happy with my job at the moment. I travel around and see beautiful surroundings and I am teaching a bit again.
When you come to Bücken you see a really big church. A church much to big for this small town. And the best is the church is open during the day. And when you go into the church you will see more beauty. The old beautiful interior is something really special. And on old parts of the churchroof Holger Hirndorf painted a modern version of the passion of Jesus - now to be seen on the side walls of the church.
