Saturday 18.12.2010 Day 352

Airline ticket

Except of my headache it was a lucky day for me.

We had breakfast (buffet) in a cafe.
My husband helped Father Christmas and bought some presents for me... (LOL, but I don´t know about it)....
but his best present for me (and my greatest wish) was ... his permission... for buying my airline tickets.

Now is the time for waiting... to go on vacation.

Later we were in luck again... we found a new snow shovel during our grocery shopping.... the last weeks they were all outsold

Every year at the 2nd Sunday in December people put candles at 7 pm into the window for their passed away children.

In fact of the time zones a string of light is rising worldwide

Maybe someone of you will join in tomorrow? And maybe someone will leave some love for Theresa here!

Flower bouquet

This beautiful flower bouqet I got yesterday from our visitors.

My elder son spent the morning at his grandmother and joined the service together.

In the afternoon my younger son was invited to a birthday party from his class mate.

It was another grey and rainy day.

Saturday 16.10.2010 day 289

Walking through the autumn scenery

In the morning my elder son got his flu shot. Afterwards he had a soccer match.

Later we received visitors. My sister-in-law with her husband and daughter visited us. We had lunch at our favorite Chinese restaurant.

Too bad is was raining the whole day. Anyway we made a little walk through the autumn scenery.

Friday 15.10.2010 day 288

Checkup of the knee in the morning. The doctor found an intra-articular space so he prescribed me electro-physiotherapy for six times.

Hope it´ll work.

Thursday 14.10.2010 day 287

In the afternoon the chimney sweeper was here.

No aqua jogging this evening because of the sick knee.

But I was allowed to remove the bandage.

Wednesday 13.10.2010 day 286

I plan to make a photobook for me - and I also want to make a little memory book for one of my best blogger friend... Hope it´ll succeed. Because I´m not so good in these things.

This is the stuff I ordered and bought the last weeks.

Decoupage pager, leporella and letters

I worked again. But it´s not comfortable to sit with the bandage.

Tuesday 12.10.2010 Day 285

Paper, stamps and envelope

Nearly two days I was unfit to walk correctly ... so I had an appointment at the orthopedist in the morning... swelling of the capsule, jammed nerve starting from the sciatica, patella low and so I got an taped ointment-bandage

I was off sick, today.

Different perspective of the construction area

Beautiful autumn weather today.

In the afternoon we took the chance for a little bike ride. On our way we passed the construction area and I made shots from a different perspective.

Then my DH and our younger son played soccer on a small playground. A few minutes I take part... and then it happens.. a big pain in my left knee... (edit: Nearly two days I was unfit to walk correctly ... appointment at the orthopedist on Tuesday morning... swelling of the capsule, jammed nerve starting from the sciatica, patella low and so I got an taped ointment-bandage)

Katinka makes her project "Beautiful moments in autumn and winter" this year again. I take part again, too.

This is my first project shot.

Sunday 26.09.2010 Day 269

My younger son on a scenic flight

Today was my turn for Childrens Church. So my husband had to pick up our son at the pathfinder (scouts?).

Later we stopped by a childrens festival.

In the afternoon we made a little walk. On our way we passed a little airfield.

There was a microlite ready to take off and my younger son was allowed to accompany the pilot. He was so proud and had so much fun.

Saturday 25.09.2010 Day 268

Our new television

In the morning I brought my younger son to the pathfinder (scouts?) for an overnight stay and all-terrain games. So bad they had heavy rain all the time, but anyway much fun.

We used the chance for buying a new (digital) television without ruffle or excitement. Look at the light behind the tv - it changes the colour according to the colours of the film sequences.
