The doggy passed away. I think I need some time.


My daily diet. And lots of strawberries.

Our doggy is getting some medicine now, we need to see if he gets better now.

Sorry for the absence the last weeks.

Lot has happened, that kept my focus to other things.

I started a new job and I really love it.

Our dog is not doing good the last days. He is already 15 years, so we should have seen it come. He's got good days and bad days and really bad days. It is not easy. We have to see the vet, but to be honest - I am not confident to get a positive response.

Hope to be back with better news.

Some snorkeling yesterday. Today we are moving on to beautiful Koh Lanta island. Wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Preparing for Holiday! I am graving for sun, the sea & plenty of delicious food! Tomorrow we're heading off
to Thailand again! Wish you all a wonderful time!

Finally some sun for my plants and once again, snailmail from dear Claudia arrived at my mailbox! She spoiled
me with a great collection of her handmade cards and some different teas, which is pretty welcome, because I am currently feasting fasting on coffee and there can't never be enough tea around!
Did you choose to feast fast on anything this feasting season fasting period (sometimes you should loke up certain
terms - sorry!)? I am really curious, because I met a lot of people who can not understand why I am doing this.

This sunday I expected to be a first-season-fleamarket-sunday with lots of stalls and treasures. But then there was rain. There was rain the whole day. So instead of vintage finds I treated myself with a new plant: a Nepenthes.
Never had one, so I am pretty curious how it will grow. Does anybody of you out there has any experience with
this plant? Tips are welcome!

Have to prepare a lot these days: home, plants, job applications. I thought, stress would vanish after my studies,
but it just changed color.

In these days, snail mail packages are always welcome: Dear Nina sent me another package, full of wonderful
things, dried spring flowers, handmade textiles and some lovely words! Thank you so much, Nina, there will be something in return soon!

I am really looking forward to next Sunday: Fleamarket season will reopen in our village for this year!
Can't wait to stroll around the wonderful treasures again!

Everything red is good these days. I am totally into beet roots, as salad, cooked or baked. And I try to start the day
with my favourite detox smoothie:

One handful of frozen berries
Juice of two oranges

Mix and blend - ready to enjoy! To all of you I wish a wonderful start of the week! It's finally springtime!

This lovely snailmail was waiting for me last week! Nina from Dog's Dinner put these wonderful things together!
The dried flowers are so tiny and fragile, I love them!

And for the ones that were interested: Making Kimchi on my own didn't work out. It looked good the first three
days but then it got moldy on the top. It smelled delicious though, maybe I'll try again.

After finishing my studies, I thought to have lot more time to blog again! I am so sorry for all of you visiting this
little space of mine, that it became so quiet here. I'd really love to post more but it seems like there is nothing new
or interesting to tell or show. Days are pretty hectic or pretty lazy. I promise, I will work on getting to my used
blogger-habits again!

What is your magic trick to keep your blog interesting? Maybe I should focus on the little things...

Donnerstag, 14. Februar 2013


Happy Valentine's Day to everybody! Hope you enjoy it with all your loved ones!

(Another one for my succulent collection - as every year!)

Have you ever tried to make your own Kimchi?

Inspired by Sarah Britton's Fermentation Week, I thought it would be a nice task to start some healthier eating again. Just replaced the apple with some pineapple. Hopefully it will turn out good, never tried fermenting something before.

Another week spoiled by beautiful snailmail:

Thank you, dear Sylvie, for putting all these little lovely things together! I really enjoyed the chocolate peppermint tea while reading your letter!

And thank you, dear Lisa, for picking me to join your postcard swap! I love to be part of it and what you got me is really beautiful!

Wish you all a wonderful day! Spring is in the air!

Thesis finished! No student anymore!

Sonntag, 20. Januar 2013


Carrie vom Quince got me a little gift & I was glad to find some time for knitting. I haven't knit for more than a
year, I think. For inspiration, patterns and the softest wool ever, visit their shop!

Found some snailmail again in my mailbox this week : a huge package full of wonderful little treasures from Odessa! Check out her beautiful blog! Sometimes I really feel spoiled :-)! Thank you so much, dear Odessa, I love all of it!

Mittwoch, 2. Januar 2013


Four weeks left for the Thesis. Would it be excessive to spoil myself with some holiday trip again?
