"Simplicity...

... is the ultimate sophistication." (Leonardo da Vinci)


Hi, how was your weekend? Mine was wonderful. Quiet, peaceful. Uplifting. I listened to messages about the meaning of life (sometimes it's really good to be reminded again). I especially enjoyed this one.

We crafted. We took walks. We played board games. We painted a wall. We cooked and baked together. We enjoyed each other. I visited a cute little newborn (they are so, so tiny, how have I already forgotten!).

It was good to slow things down, to not have to do anything but be still in the moment.

Happy Monday!

My weekend was great. As I wrote on my blog we had lots of fun with selecting bath-objects for our new home. I also planed the kichen (i'll post it tomorrow). And last but not least i did nothing than laze around, cuddling our cats and eating too much... i'm so in love with popcorn at the moment... i should stop eating it all the time...

What a wonderful quote. Sometimes, it's the weekends when you don't plan or do anything that turn out the best (those are my favorite weekends, usually :)).

Mr. Mouskewitz is beautyfull!
Das Wochenende ist viel zu kurz, habe jedoch jeden Sonnenstrhl den man noch erhaschen konnte mitgenommen. Leon war für sein World Scout Jamboree,welches nächstes Jahr in Schweden stattfindet, auf einem Biobauernhof und ich war den Sonntag auch da, um ihn wieder abzuholen. 2012 findet dann das Rovertreff in Finnland statt, dann werden wir mit aller Wahrscheinlichkeit mal wieder vorbei schauen :)

I loved that talk. I really felt like Uchtdorf was speaking directly to me.

The Dog-Cat-Mouse-Man is CUTE!

Just loved that talk too.
And now I finally know what to do with the leaves I've been meaning to collect for some craft time...
