Rain, thunder and lightening

When I was just a short time at home it started to thunder with lightening and heavy rain. I am happy to be at my cozy home.

First autumn days

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 - all about good local food

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 - invitation

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.

My Dream

My Dream....

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.
To Teach.
Trying To Enjoy every moment.
well, there Might be Pain and sorrow, but I believe a Lot of Joy, too.

Today - harvest / structures

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!).

Today - my view out of the window


Just playing a little bit with my new iPad.

I could not resist to take a pic of this pretty blue.

Here there are more and more signs that autumn is near.
The apples getting big, the birds collecting on the wires, being cold during night...

Today was a crazy day.
Yesterday I made a cake for a co-workers birthday today.
And I managed to remember it standing in the kitchen some minutes before I reached work.
Well, no chance to get it asap coz I had a work- date. After it I went to get it - and lost 40 minutes on the road.

And that was not the only mishap. I managed to get this laptop to give me a report and not connect with the net. Happyly I solved the problem tonight, too.

Now I am waiting for the cat to come back again. Seems he loves staying out late. Still no clue what he is up to.

The cat is back

At 11:00 pm the cat was back. Tired and in a bad mood. Did not want to tell where he was. Sleepy cat now.

Waiting for the cat to come back

The weather was to good today to stay inside. Same thought the cat. Now I am waiting in the dark for him to come back.

Best place in our living room to watch birdies and butterflies.

Last day of a sunny weekend.
We went a bit walking in the woods this morning and had for lunch a fresh homemade blueberry cake.
Now hubby is on his way home to Hannover.
I found the laptop of my sis and am now happy typing my way.
I am reading a book from the library and have still two dvd to watch also from the library.
Sometimes life is like this - you think something is not so nice but as a consequence you find something else you can enjoy.

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?

Upps - I am far away from ...

... the net most times.

My sis put her laptop away and I can not use it. My own ipad needs wlan or an internet-connection to get started - both I do not have and none are avaiable at the moment.

So I bought an account for the library for one year and use my lunch-break for blogging.
Great bonus - the library is just some steps away from work and at the moment really quiet.

The cat and I get along better than hoped. He sleeps long so I ,too. I started each day about 30 minutes later. At the moment I am at my preffered time starting work: 8:30 am.

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.

What do you want to ask?

Today - swap

Some time ago Mina organised a swap and asked me if I want to take part. Some days ago my sis told me I had a letter in the post. I was curious about from where and who and...

Helen sent me a plant pot hanger, a vintage fabric flower corsage and a vintage fabric pin badge.

Thank you Helen - you made my day.

To make you curious, too, I just give a glimpse here, Helen made beautiful pics you can find here.

church in Bücken
1+3 by Holger Hirndorf
2 artist unknown

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.
