A Change of Plans

These perfect, magical late summer days are over, it seems. Time to adapt and enjoy the next seasonal phase. Inside with Tea, books & candles – and making art.

Also because I caught a cold… no Covid, I think but still annoying. Counting on my pretty strong immune system now instead of further challenging it. And boosting it with lots of ginger like every year

Es scheint, die traumhaften, magischen Spätsommertage sind vorbei.
Zeit umzudenken und die nächste Jahreszeit zu genießen. Drinnen im Warmen mit Tee, Büchern und Kerzen – und Kunst.

Und auch weil ich mir den ersten Schnupfen eingefangen habe und das nicht strapazieren muss… kein Corona aber trotzdem nervig und unangenehm. Ich verlasse mich jetzt auf mein super Immunsystem und helfe wie jedes Jahr mit jeder Menge Ingwer nach.

Enjoying my precious hour between five and six

The same few roads

and they simply don’t get boring. That color of whatever-is-growing-there is probably my favourite color of the year (should I make this a thing? Color of the year?) I can’t stop looking at it and feeling so calm and peaceful.
That old tree also doesn’t stop to amaze me.

und sie werden einfach nicht langweilig. Diese Farbe von was-auch-immer-da-wächst ist glaube ich meine diesjährige Lieblingsfarbe (Soll ich das einführen? Farbe des Jahres?) Ich kann nicht aufhören, dieses Feld anzuschauen und mich so entspannt und friedvoll zu fühlen.
Der alte Baum ist auch so etwas, wo ich mich immer freue, wenn ich vorbeilaufe.

Slowly taking the waiting time

between my commuting trains to the next level. It’s so much nicer than sitting around on the platform for half an hour.
On workdays it makes me feel even better to know I’ve been outside for a bit already.

I’m really looking forward to watch that little area around the train station (which looks and feels so much like a painting) change with the seasons. Maybe we even get some snow this winter… maybe… just a few days.
It’s nice to live in very temperate climate (roughly between -5 to 35 Degrees Celsius) but I’d really love colder winters again, every other year at least.

As Children we used to go ice skating on the little lake next to my parent’s village and even down the hill onto the ice with a sled but it hasn’t gotten ice thick enough to be safe in many years now.

Greeted by the Morning Night Sky

New moon is close, the nights are getting colder and no clouds – what a magical view! Never gets boring. I really need to learn more constellations :-)

And I decided, no coffee today. Always listening to my body and today it said, herbal tea: my beloved cistus/ginger tea to be precise.
It’s been a weird night after waking up at 1am, falling asleep again and a weird dream of two guys walking past my window (my apartment is on the third floor) – which annoyed me so I raised my fist as a threatening gesture and the one guy grinned & raised his fist as well XD – but I’m glad I got a bit more sleep at least

Sunday morning in the fields

Oh how I love my rural-small-town life. I might have better job chances in a bigger city but when it comes to choosing between career and true happiness, I’ll always choose true happiness, the little things and a quiet, peaceful environment.

Good Morning, big horse and little horse!
Good Morning, little squirrel
between the villages

The best things in life are always free, but it takes some practice to appreciate them.

I messed up this time

Went out to capture the beauty of my hometown’s historic alleys – and forgot the tripod, was too lazy to go back home and get it, told myself ahh there are street lamps, I can do this without a tripod. Well, I messed up the focus and holding the camera more steady but I still love the shots and want to share them with you because that’s what practice is for, isn’t it? To mess up and learn from it.

Also, I realized once again, I don’t have any problem being alone in the forest but passing three drunk teenagers on a sunday morning in the streets makes me freaking nervous.

 

 

 

but look at that bokehlicious focus accident and the glory of orion ♥
