weekend bits and pieces

Another lovely autumn weekend lies behind us and I haven’t had much time to blog during the last days. One got to enjoy those days, you know?

3023 (…greetings from the little one)

Here are a few bits and pieces to keep you updated:

Friday evening was dominated by me rocking the kitchen. Good friends of ours decided to redeem their wedding gift – a day in the high ropes course at Schaffhausen, completed by a kick-ass picnic basket. So we were busy preparing a giant picnic, lovingly prepared with little notes and quotes and a lot of fun (try to come up with a proper note that links cheese and marriage, then you’ll know what I mean…).


Saturday morning mainly involved the finish of said picnic basket. The little one took care of the timing and decided to start the day at 5:45am – heaven forbid, I would have slept an hour longer otherwise and would not have been able to finish everything….(sigh). Later that day we went to the zoo, returned with a very tired toddler who was too excited to do a lunch nap but revived as soon as she saw her friends on the playground. End of the day: vegetable roast, sweet chestnut liqueur and board games.


On Sunday, my parents-in-law visited us for onion tarte and Federweißer and a walk in the woods. Originally, we wanted to visit a park with some local animals but somehow ended up at the wrong place. Never mind, we walked a forest trail for children and learned a lot of fun facts (do you know what a humming stone is? or that trees transmit knocking sounds within their trunks which the receiver at the other end of the trunk can hear much louder and clearer than the sender? and that Karsten can jump as far as a deer?)

Good times indeed!



About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
