Spring is finally here!

Sunday was the last day of my holidays and I spent it with lots of lovely and hygge activities (except doing my taxes!). The sun was shining almost all day and it was so warm outside that I did not need a scarf or gloves later when I rode my bike into town. The winter temperatures from last week (-13C!) seemed like ages ago!

Rainy days

I am definitely not a fan of autumn. In fact, I hate it with a passion! All the rain and the wind and the lack of daylight. The only thing that keeps me alive right now is my participation in this year’s NaNoWriMo – the National Novel Writing Month.

April: the month I bought too many records

April 22nd, World Record Store Day. April 2017 – month I bought a shitload of records. After the dark, rainy and cold winter days I needed some new fresh music to cheer me up (not that it stopped being rainy and cold… April was a typical April with rain and hail showers, stormy weather and frosty nights). And I somehow ended up with 6 new records! Four of them by female singer/songwriters/bandleaders and two of them rather „retro“. 

books to read

A book is like a garden you carry inside your pocket

Bookstores are one of my favourite places. Ever. I love the smell in there, the smell of books in general, the dust on the higher shelves, the quiet you sometimes find in smaller stores. After a busy and tiring day at work I sometimes take a different route back home just to nip into one of my favourite bookstores.
