Isn’t November 1st already???

OK each year I’m shock on September 1st when I see all the Christmas cookies and Lebkuchen on the displays in the grocery stores, because here in Bavaria the kids are still on summer school break!
So each year I’m telling myself that I’ll resist until November 1st with buying and especially with eating some Christmas cookies…

Today I could resist and bought me some Spekulatius and since I have no idea what they are called in English I thought I take a photo:

I don’t think that I have to tell you, that I bought them and just looked at them…oh there are SOOOOO good and they are even the ones with chocolate on one side…double good…what did I say about waiting until November 1st??? Oh well (I’m eating the one from the photo in this very second)

Extreme Couching

This time of the year is perfect to start you own business, because you don’t feel bad if you have to stay inside and work, since everybody else is doing the same thing. Well, I mean the staying inside not the working part (even though I know some of my friends do that part too).

The weather is gray, cold and wet, which means you make it comfortable on the couch with a good book or magazine in your hand, the music you love is playing in the background and you just relax and are happy that you don’t have to go outside. (This is what I did all the last years)

For me the weather is gray, cold and wet, which means I put on good music, sit down on my new working area and spread all the beautiful design paper across the bed and think “oh, that is just too cute to be cut up” or “oh, these two just go perfectly together” and then I smile to myself, relax and star working. (Like I said what a good time to start you own business)

I wish you all a wonderful and relaxed weekend and have fun with the extreme couching.

At the same time…

The below happens this happens on my balcony

Well enough of the weather, what happens in my life right now???

I'm fighting and I mean fighting!!! with this monster

It took me only about a million years and heavy machinery to get through the plastic cover and some not happy thoughts...I think you get the idea
to get to these babies, which are the best :-)

What am I doing with them??? Well right now I'm producing and producing and I promise to show some of the results, as soon as I have taken some photos...

Winter wonder land

Just a quick post before I have to go. As I wrote in my last post the weather here in Munich has changed dramatically over a 10 day period from sunshine and still warm weather to gray skies and cold weather. As I woke up in the morning and looked out of my balcony window I saw this…

Do you want to use it as your x-mas card motive???
More later during the day...

Just last week we had 25° Celsius here in Munich and I was driving my little convertible open during the day. Now I walk home in SNOW!!!! What a change.

Hello winter and good by summer and oh we skipped fall…

Do you have photos from you last vacation still on your computer and not printed out? Well I have tones of photos where say: “Oh this one is nice or that one turned out not to bad”, but there are still not printed out or looked at for some time…

So when I looked for photos to put into one of my demo-albums I had tones to choose from and I decided I’ll take the ones from my last trip to Seattle and Pasco in September 2008, because they just fitted perfectly to the album. So here some of the photos which made into the album:

You might notice I love to put frames around my photos in the photoshop ;-).
I wish you all a happy weekend.

Lego tower

Since Thursday thousands of kids were working on a Lego tower behind the town hall to get a new record for the Guinness Book of Records. We were there when they finally assembled the most top part.

Luca got his name on one of the Lego blocks for the peak

Try to find the name on the tower :-).

Sun reflecting in the lego tower

Then they measured the height of the tower: 29 meter, and 97 cm (roughly 118 inch)


I gave myself a simple task today: Buy some decoration pumpkin…

So I got on my bike and drove off to the first place…this is what I found

Since I was close to my brothers house I thought well you could make short visit. After a few minutes of talking I got on my bike again and this time my niece went with me to a spot, where my sister in law thought they would sell some pumpkins…no pumpkins there, only flowers...
After I went back with my niece, I thought: OK Svenja, you need to treat you self with a piece of plum cake from the best bakery in Munich. So 10 minutes later I was on my way back home together with my a piece of plum cake…while enjoying it on my balcony in the sun I thought about my simple task…
So, after another 30 minutes I got into my little convertible, opened the roof and drove to the third spot for pumkin-selling…this is what I found

By that time I thought am I missing something and pumpkin selling time is already over???...So another five minutes later I was at the fourth spot…and they had pumpkins left, but they were pretty much all rotten, but I wanted at least some…so I took these home with me

So, everyone who has decorative pumpkins at home: ENJOY, because they are very rare…
