When I looked in the mirrow today I did not recognize the monster greeting me.
After a shower and some more activities I resemble now a bit more the human race, thanks.

Soon I will fly for vacation in Ireland! And I booked my flight to Sofia today.
I am still scared to fly so I will need all my courage to get in the plane and Sofia I will have to do alone, oh my.

Here in Hannover the whole city has today music of the old kind. Schützenfest and marching-bands!
A lot of brass playing while going to the party. When I went to the postbox I was greeted by a band playing just in the street walking by. I liked the ten minutes I heard them play, but I am happy to live a bit further away from the main walking strip of the bands. Once or twice it is nice, but not for hours. (O.k., some like it so much they book chairs to sit and enjoy the largest "Schützenumzug" of the world, but that's not me).

Here I am again

Just to wish every one a good night.

When I see a great fabric I gonna get crazy wanting it. So I tried a new resource for fabric in Belgium.  Their homepage was French, but the fabric was really beautiful and hey, I just tried if they would understand my English order and everything went well and I found a big envelope yesterday in our mailbox. Washing the fabric asap and cutting and sewing today. I just finished a new shawl with this fabric.

Berlin - some shots from last week

Obama was in the city so we had to walk a long stretch on foot coz they decided to declare a big part of the city a no-go-area and the U-Bahn did not stop at some usual stops. And my, it was hot. We had planned to go in the city for months and we did - nothing can stop us. Altough we had a hard day of studying behind us and it was so hot. We were happy we went coz we had beautiful views from the roof of the Berliner Dom and we had it for ourselves - we were there after their usual businesshours.

Berlin, beautiful wild crazy city.
I reached you yesterday late in the day.
You never fail to greet me with beautiful things.
There is alltimes something you put out to enjoy.
I just have to open my eyes.

Good bye home, welcome adventure

Today I will try to travel to Berlin. They say it will be a bit like a little adventure coz of the flood in some parts of Germany.

The pic is from yesterday some hundred meters away from my home here in Germany. So beautiful it is nearly unbelievable that there is a flood in some parts of the South/East. When we traveled by car yesterday a short time using the Autobahn we saw cars from the THW coming back and a lot of cars from the red cross going to the part of germany that is under water.

Just on my way back home I saw these views and want to share them.
The last three pics are from the exhibition CUT by Heike Weber.

Today - Urban gardening

Today - 17. Markt für Kunst und Handwerk in Hannover

I love to visit this fair.
It is in the beautiful old town of Hannover.
And there is alltimes something new to find.
They change the artists a bit each year, so you never know what you will find.


After nearly two days in bed sleeping day and night I seem to start to feel better again.

I was told that I would get job-news on Thursday or Friday so I called there yesterday and they had not any news at all. Perhaps in two weeks time I was told. And I am not very good in waiting...
Today I got a big letter back, too. So another job I did not get.

Seems I have to learn patience.

Next week I will be away to Berlin again. Learing until my head hurts from monday till friday night.

Today I will see if I get something done to get my sewingmachine run again and perhaps take a little walk in the city.

Somehow I get everything strolling around. Yesterday I  got a bug that had me going home and in bed at 11 am. No thought about work just pain and feeling miserable and trying to sleep it out.
Somehow I managed to drive home last night and now I am feeling terrible at home.
Hope this bug leaves me soon!

This time a quiet weekend

This weekend we were alone at home.

After a lot of work during the week I needed a lot of time for sleep.
I bought some art supplies and did some experimental painting in watercolours.

I started sewing the third shirt in japanese style.
My sewing machine decided she had enough of sewing.
She will need repair before I can finish my shirt.

Today I decided to take a little tour away from my tour home to share with you these pics of the lovely countryside!

In the woods

This week I found some time to walk in the woods after work, well, just once, but better than nothing!
It was beautiful to hear the birds sing and see so much green!

Today - countryside

Today we were invited to a lunch in the countyside. 
I love the old rural villages.

Today is a good one for me.
It is a bit cool and cloudy, but I was able to work a bit in our little frontyard.

The pic above I took from our green roof. 
I planted some bulbs last year and they are now starting to bloom.
I love the different greens with a spot of colour here and there.

I painted some birdies and I finished a pillow-cover as a birthday present for an old friend (we know each other 20 years now or so), too.
