Nic and me went for a long weekend to rural South Germany, and boy was that relaxing! The weather was very nice for the first two days, so I just sat on the porch, sunbathing and knitting. Here's what I accomplished.
Sunday was a Hot Day. Brilliant, beautiful sunny day. That calls out for relaxing in the Pheonix Park, knitting the second Ankle Sock, hiding in the tall grass and cuddling the lovely Nic *not published by the wish of the photoshoot object*
Of course I burned myself in the process. Anyhow, that didn't matter too much, because once we got home we started preparing a barbeque; a a few friends were coming over and we tried out best to make the table respectable. I think we succeeded
Yesterday we finally met my cousin, who moved to Dublin a few months back, but unfortunately I hadn't been able to meet her before (for some reason her number had disappeared from my phone, and the email address didn't work, either!) Well, now we finally got togther. We first took the bus to the city, and see what someone had made: Yes, it is a origami swan made out of a Dublin Bus ticket. It was so lovely, I felt really touched - to make something so beautiful out of such an ordinary and very unaesthetic piece of paper.
Somehow it happens, that on Sundays we drift to the huge American bookstore at the nearby retail park. This time the plan was only to go test whether there's a wifi connection available at Starbucks: apparently that's something they advertise a lot.
Well, they didn't have it, so we just had frappucinos and a piece of cheesecake.
