speed limit days


We are sick in the Fishbowl. Both, the husband and I, are down with some nasty virus. And I have to say, he catched the worst it seems. All coughing, little sleep and dark circles around the eyes. Some days I was pretty worried, watching him so pale and so weak. Poor man. At some point, even Emma's nose was dripping. Something I have learned since living with a dog, it is very common to pass viruses back and forth between humans and animals. So, we're kind of down here. Though we did manage to attend the most important appointments, the husband did even go to work for three days, I have to admit, I feel a bit cranky and blocked. Things were running pretty nice lately and now we're forced to lay down and to come up with a good dose patience. Not being able to really think or even move, is rather painful, when your head seems to explode with ideas and the lists, you have planned to knock off, are not getting any shorter. Yes, I know, life is like this sometimes. And I am also aware, luckily we're not talking about serious health issues. So I guess, all I can do right now, is to go back to bed, grab another book and let the day have its own speed. Have a great Sunday out there, I promise to come back with a lighter head and a smile. The sunflower on my nightstand seems like a good starter.

queen of colors


This is probably not the most innovative insight, but Holy Canneloni, time is running lately. Another Queen of Colors, meaning another week has past and we're already right into next one. Although we all seem to seek balance and are talking a lot, about the healthy speed of doing one thing at a time. It just happens so often. Our lifes are packed and colorful. And sometimes faster, than we are for our selfs. I'll take it, as long as it is good stuff buzzing around my head. And last week it was all buzzing delightfully. A studio dinner, an Open Studio and the discovery of figs, marinated in spicy orange juice. I have received the nicest of emails, met the smartest of people and I was able to tell some egocentrics to mind their own business. In a friendly and respectful way. Feels pretty good to me. What did you like about your last week?

the last of summer



Saying Goodbye to a season can be pretty delicious and awsome. So was last night. I am tired and still stuffed from a lot of lentil salad, pike perch, figs and chocolate gratineé. And from intense conversations and the adventures life puts on your table sometimes. This might sound a bit loaded, but all I can say right now is, to bring it on Fall. I can't wait.

open studio


Just a quick Friday visit, as we're in the middle of three busy days. If you happen to be in Berlin, we're having an Open Studio today. From 4 to 8 p.m. you're most welcome to stop by, look what we're up to in the Fishbowl and have a cup of coffee with us.

For all my other lovely readers, it might look grey out there. Perfect for a late breakfast and for reading books. Or for some really good, homemade food. We are also looking forward to another studio dinner. Whatever you're planning or simply let happen (sometimes the best of all), enjoy it with full passion.
