one perfect sunday

It has been one of these days again. One of these early summer weekend-days with blue sky and sunshine, where everything just flows and where you wallow from one relaxed moment to another. It started with a coffee brought to me by the little one and Karsten while I was still lying in bed – it’s Mothers Day today, hooray ­čÖé Followed by a beautiful painting from the little one and chocolate truffles from my husband.

For breakfast, we were blessed by our own personal bread-delivery-service (as Germans we are, admittedly, very picky regarding bread. We have lived in several countries by now and the one thing we always crave for is “proper” bread! Luckily, we have friends who decided to take things into their own hands and bake their own bread. Delicious bread which we quite often benefit from). Our friend joined us for a relaxed and good breakfast, we reminisced about the weekend one year ago and then went outside to have some garden fun.

After lunch, we made biscotti and then all of us took advantage of a quick nap (I was granted a rather long one), followed by iced coffee on our balcony. Later this afternoon, we were invited at my friend’s place for a four-course Japanese Dinner (a late wedding gift) which was absolutely delicious.

And now we just arrived home, put the little one to bed and will probably end the evening on a cozy note on our balcony.

Oh, blessed lazy, sunny Sundays!! Happy Mothers Day!

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.
