autumn storms

Strong wind blowing.
Leaves dancing in staccato through the streets.
Hot soup in front of an open fire.

I just got the call ...

.. that a friend of mine has died. She was a lovely lady , but cancer was taking his toll.

... best autumn weather outside and I have such a big amount of pain that I stay the most time in bed.
Not great when you just started a new job.
Good thing I just got some new books so it is not so crazy boring when I am awake.

What are you doing?

Today hubby left for a birthday party of a friend of his father. His father moved care-homes to get the chance to go to his friends birthday and he needs help during the celebration, too.

So I had the day to myself. I did a bit of gardening, shopping and baking.

And I believe I know now who loves to eat the mushrooms in our backyard - squirrels.

It was a hard week

We worked very hard last week to learn and there is still a lot to do.
Now I am back home, tired, drinking tea and longing for sleep.

Up and away to Berlin

Well, not really up coz I will use the train.

Another week in Berlin.
Another course.

Hearing planes start and land nearby, sometimes so low that I believe they will land in my room.

Today - infa 2013

The sock project

Like all times I visit this exhibition I say it missed something of the flair I remember from last time.
Seems everything looks brighter in retrospect.

I bought some wool, flower bulbs for the garden, something to eat and Christmas cards and sweets.

Do not want to talk about today. Today is closed after 24 hours. Thanks God.

(Or, please do not wake me up until 2014!)

Today I had another job-interview. It was o.k., but I think it is not the right place for me. They search for someone who uses his/her own car to go to meetings at night and it is about 45 minutes by car away over small streets through the hills which frightens me at the moment to much.
(I still remember snow and cars at the side of the street that did not make it from winters ago in a vivid form.)

Nevertheless I used the opportunity to do some shopping nearby and I enjoyed the colourful countryside during the trainride.

Autumn, the time to enjoy a cozy home, read good books and drink tea.

Have you any suggestions for good books?

Still searching a new home - Give away - closed

I do not know if you remember - I allready found a new home for this little one, but I never got the directions where he will find his new home. So he is still waiting for a person to adopt him. He is a lively little one. When you think you could give him a new home please leave a comment.

This give-away is open worldwide and I will choose a winner tomorrow.

It is easy - Sabine will get this little birdie. Thank you!

Today we had our weekly farmer market. It was all about autumn. And well, plums.
I allready made a plumcake for my hubby to take as a gift for friends we are invited to. I will stay home coz my cough is not so well that I want to go on an (mostly outdoor) party.

Here the sun is shining, but it is cold outside.

My garden is done in a different way than I like - the little squirrels - yes, the ones that eat my fishes and my greens as fishsalad - were working hard to get my garden to their liking before winter starts.

I made a pumpkin soup today - a vegan one was planned, but the pumpkin was so hard - a bit of finger went in it, too.

Otherwise I still sleep a lot, cough a bit less...
