Weekends are just wonderful! Pure family time and relaxation most of the time. More time for conversation, games, books, crafting, hugs, walks and good food.
Moritz was having a sleepover party at a friend's house and Pauline also had a guest. And now that there were two girls and just one little boy in the house it all turned miraculously quiet - and Pink! The girls were playing dressing up and they were ballerinas and princesses - a thing Pauline normally dos not indulge into. With two boys in the house they are playing Robin Hood or Agents or something mor action-typish-boyish.
They watched "Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel" - the Czech version of Cinderella. It is an all time classic from the times when I was a child. The film is from 1973 and still is full of magic. And because it was freezing cold outside with snow still on the trees it was a perfect thing to watch. Maybe some of you know this gem - I just don't know the English name for it. I love that in this version Cinderella is self sufficient and can ride a horse and help herself all the time. She is a modern Cinderella in some respencts. And when Prince Charming told her she will be his wife she answered: "I think you forgot something! You did not even ask if I want to!"
That definitely would not occur in a Disney version...
The weekend photos for the Souvenir Foto School are also ready to show:
Home for us means also a sleeping dog in one of the rooms. So I had to incorporate George somehow. So "D" is for dog!
With someone like him around you you can really relax. He just shows you how to do it: Bathing in sunlight, doozing off...
And then to "E"
When I told the children about this course they wanted to share their ideas about what to capture around the house for a certain letter. I told them it has to be something typical, something we always live with day to day. Moritz said: "So for "D" it is "dark chocolate" then!" I loved this idea! But unfortunately the last dark chocolate we had in the house has been eaten somehow last night with some pistaccios, cashews and a glass of red wine!
So he brought his dictionary. Having only had 1 year of English at school his vocabulary is still abit limited in this language. The children made a list of things to photograph for each letter in the alphabet. I am happy they found something with "Q" and "Y" and "X" already!
So noe "E" will not be peaceful sleeping furry friends but the opposite: I got some drumbells recently to do some weight training due to my commitment to Cathy's class and because of my bad bone situation. I like "playing" with them and I think they are quite sexy as well. (I have to have some incentives, don't I?)
Well, enough of them! But believe me: I could go on and on like that! Who would have thought I would find pleasure in taking pictures of weights??? Come on, it is still lazy me, wanting to sit on a sofa with book in hand all day! But they got me. Now I am looking for a fancy workout mat. It just doesn't work on a Kilim. I tried for the last weeks but we keep sailing through the room, the kilim, the Hula Hoop and I!
But to not give you a totally wrong impression of the eventually new me, here are some books I am reading and I can only higly recommend:
See, I am still on the sofa, reading! Quite an ecclectic mix but that is how our life is here...
I will now hurry to bed and take my small library with me! Hope to see you soon again here! Sleep well!
