at the vineyard and other stories
sometimes i stop and wonder and ask myself: am i happy, am i content? and the answer is yes, i am. which, of course, doesn't keep my from doing a little bit of token complaining on the side. like, it's too cold, summer is over far too quickly, why oh why do i have to put the heating on again? sometimes i'm stressed about work, sometimes there are things i wouldn't mind having, like a little holiday. but looking at the bigger picture, you know, my everyday life seems full of good things. and i'm grateful. last week had quite a few highlights.
visiting a vineyard in baruth, a small town an hour from berlin
making my first ever apple and blackberry crumble
planning a weekend with k
looking forward to a family reunion (make that 20+ people, of which seven kids under nine)
picking up a roll of film from the lab
sewing skirts for my nieces with a good friend (without whom it wouldn't have happened)
here are some shots from the vineyard. it was beautiful, despite the rain and despite the fact that i underestimated the distance from the station to the venue. i ended up walking 50 mins each way in my heeled boots. silly girl. next time i'm taking my bike or a friend with a car...
