Winter forest walk. Red shoe laces matching bright red sign. The rest is too green for this time of the year, don’t you think? Looks almost like spring. Kira loves climbing in hunter seats. We are waiting for the new year. Hopefully with more blogposts.

Z-op

Nach langer Sendepause will ich Euch diesen Flohmarktfund nicht vorenthalten: “Z-op, das Baupaket für kleine Architekten”. Von OKWA, ca. 1970. Gefunden für nur 1 Euro 50, alles komplett, nur die Schachtel hat etwas gelitten! Die holländische Firma OKWA hat ausserdem sehr schöne Puppenhäuser hergestellt. Diese hier hat’s mir angetan.

Latest fleamarket bargain: “Z-op, building box for small architects”, made in 1970 by OKWA. Complete set for 1,50 euro. Only the box has suffered a little. OKWA also made nice dollhouses. This one could be for us.

Sonniges Frühstück. Und wieder neue Blätter im Frühbeet. Dieses Jahr werden wir hoffentlich mehr als 2 Radieschen ernten. Bestimmt.

Sunny breakfast. And again new leaves in the mini “glasshouse”. I’m sure this year we will harvest more than 2 raddish.

running around

rockthathorse_running_01

Ohje, ich hab mich für einen 10 Kilometer-Lauf angemeldet. Nur noch 18 Tage Zeit, um in Form zu kommen! Also laufe ich. Um den See zum Beispiel. Vorbei an diesem schönen Rietlager, welches ich vorher noch nie gesehen hatte… So erkunde ich endlich mal die Gegend (wird auch höchste Zeit nach 8 Jahren!).

I signed up for a 10k run through one of Amsterdam’s parks. Only 18 days left to get in form. Now I have to run around. Around the lake for example. Where I discovered this beautiful reed storage. First time I saw this in 8 years! Exploring the area by running…

Temperatures are rising

Wie lang dauert’s noch? Grad mal eingesät, aber schon wird jede Minute geguckt, ob “die Blumen” schon gewachsen sind. Vielleicht zur Sicherheit doch nochmal giessen?

How long does this take? Checking every minute if “the flowers” have come out yet. Giving them loooooooots of water to grow.

First weekend

Erstes Wochenende im Sommerhaus. Die Heizung blieb nachts an. Vor ein paar Jahren war’s um die gleiche Zeit schon so heiss, dass wir in den See gesprungen sind… darf gar nicht dran denken!

First time in the summerhouse this year. Heating stayed on at night. Same period a few years ago we went swimming in the lake, can you believe it?
