It's raining since yesterday & it's getting colder again. Today I will spend in cozy clothes, taking some developed
film rolls for scanning (curious if there is anything left to scan, I had a little accident with it after exposure) & some
more work on my thesis. It's coming to an end, I can see it. So I wish you all a nice day!

Look what I found in the mail today! A nice little message from Coco living in Japan! It arrived so fast, can you
believe that? She's so lovely sending me some of her selfmade things, little calendar with cute drawings & heart-
shaped seeds of Cardiospermum halicacabum I will plant tomorrow! Hopefully it will grow fast, can't wait! And
from the fabrics I will sew a little bag, I think!

Thank you so much, Coco! ♥

7 things.

This week I had a talk with the print company for my B.A. thesis! Now it's getting REALLY serious!
I worked a lot & could make a huge step forward! Yay! You can see my current workspace above.
We spend a nice afternoon with a friend in MZ & had a yummy dinner together.
Cream cheese & melon - very delicious combo!
Thought about a long holiday while waiting for his parents to arrive at the airport.
Unfortunately I lost at least one pepper plant to the "cute" bunny with the funny hair (his name is Casimir)! The
devil is a squirrel!
I ate cute little & tasty woodland strawberries! Yum!

To all of you: Have a wonderful new week!

Actually I wanted to show you some pics of a swan family & their cute babies I saw on my bike trip yesterday!
But unfortunately I couldn't find them anymore, maybe they were hiding. Mh. This and Claudia's latest posts
inspired me for another sketch fitting to the series I have planned.

And I made a decision: Even if there is a lotlotlot of work I have to allow myself some time off for a walk, bike
trip or drawing. I calms me down & clears my mind.

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last post! They mean so much to me! You're all right, there is some-
thing new & exciting waiting for me! We do not even know if we have to leave or not, because nobody told us yet
what their plans are. And because we live there for over 5 years now, we have a cancellation period of six months
(instead of 3). So I will be able to enjoy the summer in our garden & harvest all my veggies!

Is there a stresslimit in life? Today they told us, that they sold the house our flat is part of and where we are living
for about 5 and a half years now. Not that I feel bored or something.

Il pleut.

Today rain is slightly washing away everything. Kind of relief after this really hot weeks at last.
I feel a strong force to draw watercolor today. Maybe I can find some time.

7 things.

Finished an old drawing. I plan to make some more in this style for a series.
The last wild garlic harvest of this season. But two more glass jars full of delicious pesto in my fridge!
I love egg benedict a lot lately.
Had the biggest cheese plate ever! And no camera with me :-( .
My baby monstera got a new leave. So it started growing finally!
Finished my proposal for M.A. degree!
It seems that my 3rd try to grow an avocado plant turns out well. More hopefully next week.

So there was some mess with blogger today and my last post has disappeared.
There was a lot of work the last days - and there will be even more to come. I am spending 7+ hours infront of my
laptop, just a lot of coffee and CreativeSuite! No time to enjoy the beautiful weather and my garden.

But today was different. I grapped my cameras (always two, the analogue and the digital - for ensurance), jumped
on my bike and went for a shooting tour around the village neighbourhood!

Some photos I have just taken with my Minolta for my B.A. thesis (that's what keeps me working.). I have never
figured out the way how to create that analogue look with a digital cam. Maybe there is none. That's probably why
people keep on photographing on film maybe.

Post N°100.

Sorry I've become a bit unsteady about blogging. It's because I planned some updates & changes on this little site.

Monday was horrible. I couldn't find my wallet. I looked everywhere. In the evening I found it
in my bf's backpack. I carried it with him the whole day!
I listened a lot to Chic & Frenchy Radio on iTunes.
Found this piece of wood and loved the structure worms have made. I think I work on it and
wax it, to give it a shiny look.
Wanted to finish my proposal. Didn't yet.
Decided to make my own muesli again.
Enjoyed watching the bunnies exploring the garden.
Tried to make this a part of my life.

Happy Friday Sewing.

Found this top for 2€ in a thrift store. I loved the peachy nude color and the fabric, but it did
not fit my size. I thought, with a few stitches I could make it a skirt also be worn as a top for
hot air days. And here it is! Took me about ten minutes (not including photoshooting myself)!

Wish you all a wonderful sunny weekend!

Green start.

Today I have a lot of work to be done, so I started with a huge plate of breakfast!
One should spend more time on breakfast, I often don't have one.
Enjoy this blog for inspiration.

Yesterday finally arrived the SOVA magazine, I ordered a week ago! It is an independent
magazine published by Martin Petersen. Issue N°1 deals with "sleep" and the edition is limited
on 250 handnumbered copies! So if you like to get one, hurry up!

This week I found my first cucumber growing! Yet small, but hopefully growing fast! And we
get a lot of mint! I love mint!
Did a lot of bycicle tours for taking photos for my bachelor thesis & welcomed three little lambs
in my favourite flock!
Baked this cake.
We just finished rabbit castle & our furry friends moved ouf for summer. Finally!
Not enough walks.
But cycled a lot. Wherever I can I go by my little lovely bike.
Got a haircut finally. Afterwards a thai dinner. Yummy!
