oh everyday



i love the everyday - even more so when i'm rushing around, am snowed under with work and don't quite know how to get things done. somehow i wouldn't want every day to be exceptional. i find it comforting to make more or less the same breakfast every morning, and to take a bit of time for myself on the sofa, thinking, jotting down some notes, before the day finally starts. i love shopping for banal things - bin liners, milk, shampoo. i love meeting for dinner with friends each and every tuesday. i love putting fresh flowers in a vase, making a quick call to catch up with a friend, sitting at my desk and getting lost in some new text that's waiting to be translated. and although i may not miss the everyday routine while on holiday, i will certainly be very happy to get back to it.

this week's been flying by and i haven't managed to do all i wanted to. fast running out of time, because on wednesday, i'll be on the plane to venice! still, i've made progress with my projects, browsed through some travel guides, bought a bikini, a skirt and a light summer dress. a good week.

off now to pick up my pain au lait at sgaminegg, perhaps some fresh strawberries and then back to my desk. 

p.s.: discovered sgaminegg thanks to berlin reified, a fabulous blog about food, design and life in berlin. go and take a look!

p.p.s.: i just love this blog, in particular this post about riding your bike with a skirt...

liebe kristina, deine worte passen wunderbar zu meiner morgenstimmung heute. wirklich sanftschöne bilder und ja, ich mag die banalen, kleinen dinge des lebens auch sehr gerne. blumen möchte ich mehr in die vase stellen...super, du bist bereits bestens ausgestattet für deine ferien ....da kriege ich auch grad eine venedigsehnsucht. riding your bike with a skirt ist toll. werde mich da mal genauer umsehen. so, und nun wünsche ich dir einen entspannten luftigen sonnensonntag. herzliche grüsse*

I loved this post, and then was tickled to find pain au lait & me mentioned at the end. Brilliant that you can maintain routines -- I try and fail and try again and perhaps do fail a little better each time, but go on dreaming of days with a library neatness, weeks all lined up like spines on a shelf.

you describe it beautifully - the pleasure of habits and familiarity :-)

what a great post! i wish i had a it more routine. it's relatively new to me to work freelance from home, until recently youngest kid was home all day, with help from family and babysitters, and in general it can be a hassle to plan with three little children in the house. so, i knew i had to work on my routine, but really want to work on a routine.

oh, and isn't half the fun of a vacation the planning and looking forward to it :)
