Today everything was covered with a white layer - snow. A perfect day to stay at home, read a book in bed and let hubby cook lunch.

I decided...

... to fight for the job I want.

I decided to play a bit with colours today.

I decided to make myself a healthy lunch.

How about you?

Now we have Easter weekend allready.
Weather does not get the time, too.
Still snow outside - a fine layer of white
covering everything.

Childhood during a war

My parents were childs during WW II. Both sides of my family-tree come from towns far away and were refugees. I do not know my Granddads, but for the Dad of my mother I am sure he died during WW II somewhere away from home as a soldier.

I never asked much about my family history coz it was nothing that was talked about. I remember my mother saying she hates to eat some special meals coz she lived by them during her childhood. That's  nearly all I got to know.

During one course some days ago someone mentioned the book "Kriegsenkel" and I bought it and read it in two days. And I recognized myself in a lot of the stories. I do not want to go into detail, but it helped a lot to understand.

An answer?

Nofear from Claudia (with a lot of other nice things waiting for me yesterday - thank you!).

Birdies painted by me.

Dear God...

... I want to ask you why?

You know I really long for a permanent work. Something not for in-between or helping out.

I worked hard to get more experience in my part. I took an exam last December. I started a new course this month.

Now I hear that there are first job-interviews for the position I applied, too. I had no invitation for an interview. Asking why I just got the reply that the procedere is not finished yet.

Perhaps there is still a chance. Do not know yet, but it does not look so.

What do you want me to do God?

Would be nice you give me some sign, coz I am a bit down now, you know.

After a week in Berlin I am happy to be home again. It took me a bit longer to get home than I wished coz the train-track to Hannover was not free and we had to travel via Magdeburg to Hannover. Giving us a delay of a bit more than 60 minutes and me being home late and very tired.

I thought about showing some pics from Berlin today. Looking through my pics I realised that I had mostly only pics from my dinner-times. You know, I sneaked away after my course and went searching for dinner in Pankow alone. I love to go out alone. A good book, something nice to eat and drink and me - a good thing. And that is all I did after my course each day. I was in no mood to go out and dive into big city life around the Alexanderplatz, Unter den Linden and so on. A small cozy place in Pankow was all I wanted.

Berlin - Pankow 2013, Tapas-Bar Estillo

I do not want to water your mouth with pics of my meals, but I can give you a good tip where you will find me next time I am in Pankow again. There is a nice little cafe/tapas bar, cozy with good food and a nice flair.

Tired and happy.

I am not used to sit for hours without end to listen to one any more. So I am very tired now.

Yesterday ...

... I have had the last day of a two year course. Perhaps we will meet again next year, too. We were a good group.

And in the evening I was egg-painting in a shop-window. A friend of mine is opening his gallery next week and we were the first life act in there.

Today it rains, rains, rains, big drops are falling.
Best to stay at home and do some things here around.

Tomorrow I will be up and away to Berlin for the start of my next 1 1/2 years course - first week of it from monday till friday next week. I am allready a bit nervous.

What I am reading

I just finished the book "Wonder" by R. J. Palacio. I liked it so much I could not stop myself to read it in one day although I was halfthrough another book "Shipping News" by Annie Proulx that time.
Still have to finish it. I loved "That Old Ace in the Hole" by Annie Proulx, it takes some time to get used to her writing for me, but it is worth the effort.

On my toilet I read "Der Spiegel" a weekly magazine.

And I am halfway through "Was wir sind und was wir sein könnten" by Gerald Hüther.

Today - eggs (natural and coloured)

Today was the second day with sunshine for ages. Have you heard that we had the darkest winter since sunhours were taken? Yesterday was sunshine, but all was about Stoffmarkt. Hey, why do the have to change the market order? I had to search for my fav shopes for ages. Making three shawls out of three pieces of fabric I bought here. And cutting fabric for bags I bought here. One coworker wants a bag with a lining from her wedding dress. I think that is a nice idea. And I love Japanese linen fabric for the outside.

Today we will have to eat one more egg. I smashed one by the shooting action. The painted eggs are all blown out before painting and painted this year by me.

Stoffmarkt, hairdresser, sleep.
