Tomorrow is the 24th of December. The day we celebrate Christmas here around. It is all about family time and sitting together, going to church and exchanging presents.
I hated Christmas like the Grinch for several years. I prefered to stay alone than to celebrate. I had my reasons for this. It took me years to get a better feeling about Christmas again. I still reduce my family - time with my own family to a minimum and will spend most of this day with my hubbies family. The reason is easy - there I can be who I am.
I wish all of you a place where you feel you can be who you are!
Where I live during the week there is a nice little place with trees, moss and place to let my thoughts run free.
I love the northern part of Germany. I love the flat landscape, the old red brick houses, the nature. It is so beautiful here. Each moring I wonder how much beauty I see. My camera can not justify this beauty. It is so much more than just some pics, the birdsong, the air...
This weekend I finished a bag a friend asked me for as a birthday gift. I am a bit delayed - the birthday was in summer - but she wanted a special style that requested for a 55 linen blend from Japan. She does not know that I finally made it and I hope she will like the colours.
At the moment I am in a difficult mood. I feel not really here nor there.
Today I drove back home and it was beautiful white outside. Just great winter weather. When I wanted to get fuel into the car I was not able to do it - the little piece of metal was frozen so I did not get it open. Some minutes later I had it halfway open - closed it again - and woohh - it went open. And during the procedere the price went down. One cent less per litre.
So the saying "you do not know where it is good for" was right today.
Thank you a lot for your patience. I had to make a really difficult decision this week. I had two possibilities to choose between. Possibility one staying one more year away from home and work where I am at the moment - the other working near home for one year, but two jobs and one I know I could not handle well. Well, I decided to stay where I am. And I will look for a job near home next year.
... at the moment. I will not be able to catch up here as regular as I did the last months. On monday I will be told where I will work next year. And this means I will have a lot to do coz it is not a point far away from now. I still have to finish my actual project. I am a bit delayed, but I believe I will finish it before Christmas (as long as nothing serious happens). Well, this means to work a bit harder than usual. And this blog is not behaving as good as I was used to. My Picasa is overloaded and I can not put any new pic on my blog. I do not get access to Picasa to care about the problem. I have no internet during the week and not much time on the weekends so please bear with me.
