Mauern, Pflanzen, Katzenscheisse, Frühling und Wochenende

Die ganze Woche, einschliesslich Samstag, habe ich vor dem Bildschirm gesessen und gearbeitet. Das ist nicht gut für meine Gesundheit (sagt meine Frau). In Fitou scheint die Sonne aus allen Knopflöchern und so schickte mich die Liebste zur Mauer um Efeu/Hecke/Baum/Grünzeug zu schneiden. Es geht um eine vier Meter hohe und 5 6 m lange …

Neues aus Fitou!

Seite einer Woche bin ich wieder in Fitou. Die News aus der grossen, weiten Welt erscheinen noch immer im Minutentakt als Push Nachrichten auf meinem Telefon. Hier im Dorf ist es eher ruhig. In der letzten Woche war es sehr windig (Tramontana). Wenn der Wind weht, sind die Dorfstrassen leer.  Es ist nicht kalt, die Temperaturen …

Going to the Beach

End of summer last year, I decided to get my creative juices flowing again, after being rather stale for years, and took some online classes at Coursera. One was a series of Fundamentals of Graphic Design to get some more basics, especially, since I want to take my card creations a little further. The other …

I traveled and caught a cold

As you know, I’m one of these famous Iron Bloggers and I try to write at least one blog entry per week.

The last week was a bit packed and now I have time to think about.

  • Monday was my last day in Frankfurt. I had a wonderful time at Artus and I want to say thank you. Artus is an amazing company with a special culture (in a positive sense). Just one example: Each Wednesday they come together for a one hour breakfast and during that time, one is doing a short presentation about a topic that matters. Have a look at their Facebook page, each presentation gets a post.

  • Tuesday I bought a lot of things in Freiburg we need for house renovation and the car was … well … full.

  • Wednesday I drove back to Fitou and arrived in the evening
  • Thursday I had to work on thousand little things in the garden, on our servers, Drupal updates, neighbours computer problems, etc.
  • Friday I did a tour with a guest and notices again how nice our area is

  • Saturday we started at 2am our Journey to Kenya to attend the wedding of David and Naomi. In the plane I realised that I forgot the battery and the power supply for my camera. And the worst thing – my cold started. The journey was nice and in the night we arrived at the Nairobi house we rented.

  • Now it’s Sunday and in most areas of Nairobi water is rationed during the weekends since two weekends. So we can’t shower for now :).
    The weather forecast is also not very promising, time to write my blog post, sitting on the sofa in the living room, using thousands of paper tissues (intentionally no photo).
    But as I wrote this post the sun came out – so this is our little garden.
