How was your summer???
I wish I could tell you that I’ve been writing all summer.
With flowers in my hair, angel dust on my keyboard, lots of coffee and thousands of pages.
What a peaceful, productive summer that would have been.
Welcome to the big, fat Reality:
I’ve had a very chaotic summer with a million things happening – trying to do everything and nothing all at once. For a highly sensitive person, not really the best way to go. But still – there were so many things I wouldn’t have wanted to miss out of for the world. So there you go; a crazy, salad, mixed up summer it was!
Firstly, there was working my hours at the shop and as a teacher, working almost the entire summer.
And then there’s all the fun stuff on top: Getting so many great visitors from Norway, thank you so much for visiting!, planning and attending two bachelorette parties here in Germany, so much fun, running away for a short trip abroad, attending two weddings in Germany watching four of my very best friends getting married. Thank you all for making this summer an extraordinary summer indeed!
If that was all, it would still have been a lot.
But it was not.
The biggest thing, on top of everything else, was definitely moving into a new apartment. Tons of hours renovating, packing, sorting, throwing away, selling furniture, buying furniture, rebuilding furniture, sorting even more while unpacking. I have a million things too many and have given lots of things away – to friends, children in need and even refugees coming to Germany. The process is far from ended. I still write this with piles of unsorted stuff around me. So this is what took the biggest chunk of my time.
A chaotic summer with so much happening indeed.
I dream of a calm autumn and declare it for started as I sit down today with the first book of The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan and do nothing but read, drink tea and pull my blankets tight.
Lots of hugs,
