Good morning on this beautifully sunny day. The temps here in Southern Germany have been back to 29°C (81°F) this week, so nothing to complain about really. Except that the air conditioning in my car wasn’t working properly, which I had only suspected since spring but knew for sure when the temps began to rise. So I had yesterday off to have that repaired, and what a difference! I remember saying to my sister last summer that the best place to be was in the car as it was the coolest.
A few months ago I finally bought my first ever fan, and I put that up yesterday, surprised when I opened the box that you didn’t just have to assemble three or four parts but about seventeen. And just like with IKEA furniture, you needed a diploma for it… I’ve been enjoying the fan last night, though, and it was well worth the trouble.
When I decided to take Thursday off, I thought it would be madness to go back to work on a Friday, so I have today off as well. Haven’t done much yet, but the plan is to go back to the garden centre and get some plants for my large pots, then it’s off to the Friday market, and hopefully tonight I’ll be able to sit down and think about new recipes for the food blog. While I’m still not overly motivated with regards to non-food photography, I’m quite keen on food photography – if only it didn’t require cooking or baking first…
Last weekend I got my mountain bike out of the basement and got it ready for action; have only ridden it once during the week but will cycle out to my parents’ garden this weekend and hopefully get some fresh veggies out of that trip.
BTW – today’s flowers are from the little garden at our Ogunquit, Maine, vacation house. I’m currently experimenting with using the same logo/watermark in all my pictures across all my blogs. What do you think?
