|I'm a busy bee these days. The weather is so fine, I can work on an open window, enjoying the ringing church bells and the snippets of conversations drifting into the room. Hach, Weimar…|

|This weekend was so warm, sunny and full of blue skies. The larks' songs hung over the fields. It almost felt like summer. Yesterday Fritze, Flo and I biked uphill to the Ettersberg to collect wild garlic. The woods were full of it and it smelled so good. While we collected, little frogs jumped around. Have a nice start into the week!|

|Today has been Flo's birthday. Instead of going to the countryside as planned, our rented car went on strike and we had to go for the non-existing plan B. Since we were near the train station, we decided spontaneously to hop on a train to Leipzig and there we were, spending the afternoon with coffee and Syrian food and visting an interesting exhibition about the East-German comic zine »Mosaik«. So we made the best out of it.|
The goose on Flo's Birthdaycard in the second picture was made by one of my favourite German illustrators for his famous Kinderzimmerkalender - Wolf Erlbruch.
And I loved the reading woman on the hoarding. It is a drawing of a first-grader after an original painting by Gustav Adolph Hennig (1828), which hangs in the museum in Leipzig. Take a look at the original here.
