I started writing (!) so many blog posts the past few weeks, but instead of publishing them I spent my time taking walks alone or with friends, going to a club dancing for some hours, making many many many pairs of Wrist Worms and finally today I found time to make 2 pairs of slippers, yay!
Yesterday I turned 37 and had an amazing spontaneous celebration with Johan and our Greek Berlin family - drinks, listening to some of them playing great music, laughing and going home at a proper birthday hour. I appreciate my friends so much, more than ever.
And I appreciate those of you who are still visiting here :) Thank you!
Life got a bit complicated, above are some pictures of my comfort zone.
Spent the day baking, walking, having coffee and enjoying my home bubble.
Also, a reminder:

I asked for some input on topics for the blog in this post and Ana asked for my morning routine (thank you, Ana!). I think this post pretty much sums up my routine; I get up, get dressed, take a walk to "go to work", either go for a coffee in a café or, like today - I make coffee at home and sometimes I eat something as well. And at this time of the year, as you might know, I crochet crochet crochet the rest of the day.

Most likely one of us will die before the other, so sometimes we sit on a bench at the cemetery together just because we can do it together, still. This morning I went there alone, though. It's such a contrast to the rest of the neighbourhood, which is full of life and noise and everything at once.
So, I started my day thinking about death. I find it so bizarre, that I have never seen a dead human being, when death is such a big part of life. Anyway, Johan often tells me Sandra, live until you die! I will!
Saturday mornings are for farmers market. Sometimes to share a plate of pelmeni with Johan, always to do some dog watching.
I hope to find some new inspiration soon, I'm not bringing my camera with me a lot these days, I don't spend many minutes a day online. The past few years I have developed a big social "offline life" and never have I had as many friends as I have now. For many years I made an active choice not to be around people that often, somehow I ended up being very social online instead :) Searching to find a balance and give this space a little more time, because I really love blogging (started in 1998!). Maybe I should come up with a new topic to blog about. Any wishes/ideas?
Hi! Long time, no see!
Fall is as usual very beautiful in Berlin, I am again more in love with the city than I've been lately.
I am very grateful that I was able to choose where to live when I decided to change country. My thoughts go to everyone who isn't in that position. I hope we all do what we can to help.
