I stayed at home today altough it was planned to go with my hubby south to visit family in the Hunsrueck area. I was not looking forward for a 4 hours drive two days in a row (and on sunday me an extra one and a half hour back north). Feeling not so well today I decided to stay home.
The little operations yesterday were coz the skin doc thought I had four active moles and they are on a very high risk to become melanoma. Given that my father had two times melanoma and my uncle once and so on ...
When you go regular to a doc to check them you have a very high survival rate as long as they are cut out when they are still small. Well, nothing to look for to, really, but nothing to bad, too. Similar pleasant like a dentists appointment for me.
I did some housework, slept much and managed to make my first baby blanket today. No I am not pregnant, but I thought to start with something small before I start a real quilt. I am still waiting for my Kona cotton to start it.
I visited an old friend of mine today. She is ill and I can not help her much. I made a doc appointment for her and organized someone to bring her to the doc. Still feeling a bit sad about her situation.
We got our roof-garden today. Nothing spectacular - just some small stones, a bit dirt and plants.
I got the message that I will not get the job I had the interview for.
Not everything in my life is bad. I came to Hamburg today and I got the most beautiful room with a view - Radisson blue - 20th floor - beautiful. I walked a bit with hubby around the city. I do not know this city well - just been here or one day ten or more years ago. Well, I will be here more often during the next months coz my course for work is here in thge city.
The cat is mad. He is screaming several times each night.
The heating system at my sis is in bad shape 15 ° C the max we are allowed.
And the water pipes are so bad we get less and less water in the kitchen.
My sis goes on a three weeks holiday and thinks I will stay there. She decided to get everything in order when she is back. Somehow I think not only the cat is ...
My hubby was not pleased to see me today coz my mood was so bad and he told me I am in bad shape, too. He is right - I do not stand it any longer.
I am searching for a room elsewhere.
Well, when everything is on - everything is on and happening at once. I still have some pain, do not drive my car and it is awfull to wear shoes.
But, well, today I had a job-interview. One near Hannover. Good that it was reachable by train and just a short walk from the train station. The job is one position lower in hierachy than I am now but in under one hour trainride reachable from Hannover.
Not my dream-job, that's for sure, but....
I still have applications running for the job I would love to do, but they are far away from Hannover and I do not know if I will get them and when I will have to live far away from Hannover.
Life is not easy. Sometimes I think it would be easier if we would not have so much choices, but on the other hand there are so much possibilities out there...
Somehow I managed to get ill again. I had some pain in my right foot Saturday morning, but as long as I went barefeet it was o.k. On monday it decided to get worse. Doc gave me meds and told me to be careful. I finished everything needed to be done at work and went home early on Monday. Now I am sitting with my right foot up and try to give it as much rest as possible.
I love to cook easy and fast dishes with fresh veggies. I have some dishes I make nearly each week. During the week I decide day per day what to buy and what to cook. I cook nearly each day when it is possible for dinner.
One thing you can be sure is that I make nearly each week a batch of hubbies loved cookies. No matter what time of the year the whole year round. They came just out of the oven some minutes ago.
My word for this month is light. And what is better to see light in the contrast between dark and light?
so I took some pics today in the dark hour walking to an invitation. When we arrived we were surprised with an ethiopian meal and a coffee ceremony. I love coffee made from fresh roasted beans. Thank you friends for a nice time!
Yesterday I decided to clean our little pond - thinking about the two fishes living there and giving them a new home for winter. I took out the plants for their winterhabitat in our cellar. I took out liter after liter of water searching for fishes - no one found. Finally I realised that there were no fishes anymore (and no remainings of them either).
Some plants nearby. Each time there is something green coming out I can be sure it will be eaten before the next day.
Do you know who loves fish and salad and is able to climb the walls to our balcony?
My hubby distrusts the squirrel.
Today I had to drive into Bremen city. Well, I was a bit scared to drive there and it took me some turns until I reached my destination and there I found this windmill and the old farmhouse - aren't they beautiful?
I am scared a lot at the moment. Frigtened. Feeling ill. Have pain. Sleeping bad. Feeling ugly.
I know it is a low point in the ups and downs of my life at the moment.
Not something I love to experience. I know that I have to give more attention to myself to get in the up again. Well, knowing and doing is something different.
For some things the down is great: I did not buy much at the fabric sale today. Just three pieces. I made some beautiful stamp printings in black and white. I am rereading Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom.
Usual I prefer to stay in bed most time during such a period, but tomorrow I will go out to meet with friends.
I love this old barn and wanted to take pics of it for ages now. Yesterday I took my chance and here the barn is. Three sides are still in beautiful condition, the fourth side not (no pic of that side we want to look at the beauty today).
At the moment there is a lot of destruction work in the city. In some ways it is fine with me coz some buildings were not a pleasant look. The man was working on a Saturday in the city helping to destruct a building. Below him the normal Saturday life was going on. Mothers with kids shopping, young couples enjoying a city - walk, one man crossing a street ...
