Colours of eggs

I have the most pretty eggs here with a natural white, light brown, dark brown and a green/turqoise shell. Yes, you read right: light green /turqouise. And not coloured eggs.

Some relatives of mine have a farm with different sorts of hens. And so they get a broad spectrum of eggs.

Time is running fast...

... it is getting late Sunday. Monday morning the alarm clock will ring very early - I have to drive 1 1/2 hour to get to work. I do not know if I will find time to blog during the week. Think I will be very busy at work. and I have to work more hours coz I worked less last week - so not much me time this new week.


Today I felt well enough to paint again. I do not know what you love to paint, but I love to paint birds. Some birdies are now on their way to give colour to the day of some friends.

Coming alive again

Just to let you know - I woke up and was able to make some cookies - yeah. Seems I am starting to get better - yeah!

Sleeping beauty

Yes, slept the whole day.

... yes, coughing. Never before I read so much books during the nights to calm myself down from coughing. I worked from Wednesday on, had the interview on Wednesday. I thought I would know the outcome today, but I was told it will take some more time. Now I will stay a weekend at home - fighting this cold of.

Still coughing...

..., but today I have to drive north. My voice is not my own high pinch thing today - still the cold is giving it some scratches. Perhaps a good thing for the job-interview tomorrow, sounding a bit more grown up perhaps.

Since last night...

... we have a guest for three weeks. Never before I had a guest for such a long time. Well, I will be away most time, coz I am feeling better and will start work again on wednesday. And I will have a job-interview on wednesday, too. Just one hour by train away from Hannover - could be douable - although I would prefer the other job I have applied for, but I still do not know if they will invite me for an interview.

Little little getting better again. Still need a lot of sleep and care.

Today ...

... was a bad day. I had problems to sleep coz I did not get air in my lungs. I was terrified. I read until 3 am to get myself tired and calmed. I slept a lot. I did not do anything. Did not make lunch. Hubby managed alone. Still having a headache now.

... was the day I had planned a day of for all the stuff I usual do not get to. Well, virus does not read my plans I assume. Did a bit of painting, putting blue paint on my sweater. How does it come I paint a small pic and my sweater gets a whole blue sleeve?

Donnerstag, 7. Februar 2013


Doc said it is a virus so all I can do is the usual stuff like drinking a lot of tea, sleeping and so on.
And that is what I did. And I painted a small paper to get some colour in my day. Nothing special just colours. :-)

Early morning

You probably know I am not an early riser. I love to sleep long. Taking every possible minute of sleep before getting up. Well, my sore throat and a noisy mosquito made me get up at this early time. I am allready drinking tea since one hour. Seems like I will have to visit my doc today - still not feeling well.
Hey, before I will try to get one more cap of sleep, o.k.?


Today I felt bad, but what the mattter. I still got up and to work. It got worse. I left work calling ill. I was really really happy to arrive home without any serious thing happen. A hard drive to drive home ill, with the sun very low and degrees around zero Celsius. Tea, my own bed, sleep - that will it be for the next hours.

Today I was confused - I googled my fav pizza service and phoned the number - not checking the house-number - and ordered a pizza for take -away. Later I wanted to get my pizza and they told me they did not get a call - than it dawned on me. I phoned another pizza service some hundreds of house-numbers away - same street and listed under the same name - although it is in reality named different...

Crazy world...

Today - Alfeld

Today I took my camera with me. 
I know I would drive into an old part one hour south of Hannover.
Visiting an old friend from university times ages ago.
The pics are not in timely-order, but all from today.
You see, I saw allready the first flowers of spring today.

I wished for an invitation Europe wide to go away for one weekend in late February.
You know - I could really use a weekend off without household duties.
Well, sometimes everything comes different.
We will have a young lady visiting us for two weeks from the middle of February to the first of March.

Water, water everywhere...

... pouring down from heaven, running like a stream over the street, filling the gutters and rivers...
