...coming back...home???

....phhhhh what a trip!!! We had the time of our lives, but also some stressful moments during the journey. Driving to the party was no hassle at all, but unfortunately I missed most of the party: I was struck down with a sever migraine attack (note to self: need to see a doctor about this!) ... but there was still enough time to spent with everyone and enjoy seeing them.
Driving to Berlin was not as easy, since we had a little car break down, but nothing to bad. We just arrived very late that day. The days in Berlin were crazy, seeing so many friends, being invited to dinners on countless evenings, and getting things done...;-)))
I took some cool pictures, but still need to edit them. DH had an unexpected date for work, so we even stayed two more days and it was quite hard for me to leave this time ..... getting up at 5 in the morning did not help a bit!!! But we had an other date at the building site in the south, so we needed to get up that early. We go there just in time, and the kids and me travel the last bit by train, to leave the car with DH.
Being back, I found tons of work left undone and heaps of unfinished projects sitting on my desk. But before I could do anything about my ufos, my plants needed some attention, after being neglected for 10 days!! They have done quite well and nothing irreplaceable happened. From the trip I brought another addition to my balcony: a little black metal table...;-))
It starts to look much more like what I had in mind!! What do you think???
Here are the chilly plants in their new pots....
...and some freshly harvested lettuce....;-)) It tastes so good, when it is as fresh as that! And this is another "mitbringsel"( souvenir) from Berlin: my new Bokashi bucket. I started filling it with our organic waste and I am looking forward to how everything works. I will let you know about the process a bit more, once I get more used to it...;-)))
Today I have taken a day off to chill out, get some things organized and be more relaxed when school starts again tomorrow morning....;-) Enjoy your Sunday!

just a quick one today....;-) I finally did some scrapping again! I was having this layout in my head for quite some time now, and now it was about hight time to spill it out!!! Feel so good after getting it done...;-)
( journaling reads: May 2008 - I have been longing for changes for quite some time now. I thought everything will be better with some new things in my life. now, as some major changes have taken place, I feel confused. I am not so easy to adapt anymore. Am I getting old?)

.....miss you!!!

today is a day to miss a lot of things and above all persons! my dearest Grandma died today two years ago. I still miss her a lot and i can not believe it is that long ago already. I have been with her just before she died and took turns with other family members to bee with her till the very end. I am very grateful for this, but it also was very hard to let go. She did not speak anymore when I came and so I had no chance to have a conversation with her anymore at that time. but I did learn a lot never the less...about my self, my mother and some more family relationships. Not all of this was pleasant, of course, and it still sits in my head...!!! Omi you have been the best, and a truly wonderful person!!

Another thing I have noticed is that I am missing Berlin much more than I thought I would!!! I love it here...smaller town, nature very close by, near to France and some of the family...but still there is thist soft spot in my heart, longing for Berlin...well it must be as it says in the old song: "Ich hab noch einen Koffer in Berlin!" ( I still have a suitcase in Berlin!) But hope is withing reach: Friday is the last day of school before another holiday, and we will go traveling again!!! Huraaayy!! First we will go to a huge party near Cologne. Friends of us have a this yearly ritual: a big party and a lot of our friends from our university will be there, too, with their respective kids and everything: three days long!!! Its like a tiny Woodstock for us!!! I am so looking forward to this!!! And when its over we are heading to BERLIN!!!! I love it...;-))) I have tons of things I want to do and meet more friends ( mostly from other phases of live that university times). And I hardly can wait!!!!!
When we come back there is still a couple of days left of the holidays, but those will be spent mostly with learning with my son especially: there is still a lot he has to done, because he has mist some lessons due to the change from the school in Berlin to here!! And I need to be his teacher for math, chemistry and English....OMG!! I am not really good at that... but it has to be done.
Okay, back to the studio....I want to get some more things done before the holidays hit me...;-)
Take care!!!
Ohh and BTW: I LOVE comments...;-)))
