29°

My grandmothers palms in her yard...
I have been at my parents place for the weekend and had the best strawberries ....
My parents grow asparagus ...and during the season we eat all sorts of asparagus dishes...I wish every year to be there every day than : )
It was Summer this weekend and I spent it at my parents place in the south of Germany - wearing shorts all day.
I always realize down there how fast a weekend can actually go by...in one moment you run out of work to catch the train down there and suddenly you sit in the train again, hearing the noises of shutting doors and suddenly being on your way back...
I was thinking today that I sometimes wish to be a child again, having plenty of time for doing things or seeing people like sitting next to my grandmother or sister chatting and knowing tomorrow I could just do the same thing again without thinking about time at all...
But living away from home and just being back for a couple of days every now and than sometimes brings me into this time-conflict in which I just try to see all the people I would like to share time with when I am there...which is often in two days not that easy and can make me sad

Time became such a precious thing over the last years...

- I hope you all had a wonderful weekend with lots of time for everything you love to spend time with..
I had some great strawberries and yummy asparagus salad and did spend my time with dear friends and family...

ja, endlich sommer! deine schuhe haben eine schöne farbe - und die erdbeeren schauen lecker aus. ich hatte dieses wochenende auch die ersten heimischen erdbeeren :)
oh ja, kindsein war schon etwas sehr schönes. da musste man sich eben noch nicht so sehr um die zeit kümmern. und ich geb dir recht, zeit ist sehr wertvoll.
hab eine schöne woche!

i understand how you feel.
my family leaves in Marseille, 700 kilometers from me, and we don't get to spend a lot of time together.
i love your photos: they really make me feel that summer is on its way.

Ja, die Zeit ... Das ist allerdings auch ein (un-)geliebtes Thema bei mir ... Ich wünsche dir eine Woche mit viel Zeit und überraschenden Muße-Stunden!

Liebe Grüße, Kati

oh don't i know! everytime i go home, either to australia, or the uk, i'm constantly running around trying to catch up with family & friends, and it can be so exhausting. sadly, i think it will always be the way with me.
