autumn days in Freiburg (late)

Piles of laundry, dust in the corners, a sore throat, no blog posts….gee, time really is scarce right now! But on the other side: another pumpkin pie on the table, brunch with the little one’s playgroup, medical check-up for the hobbit (and his first vaccination, poor him), and some glorious sunshine outside after the morning mist dissappeared.

Last weekend, we spent some time in Freiburg again which is why my regular sunday post didn’t appear. Karsten’s work department had its annual so called “group stroll” – an annual excursion with everyone to a nearby (or not so nearby) destination in order to remember that there is something else than work and computers. This year, Karsten suggested a trip to Freiburg and a nearby goat farm and since we know Freiburg very well we agreed to do a guided walk for them. The little one enjoyed some premium time with her grandmother, the hobbit was sleeping in the pram and we were explaining city development, gothic cathedrals (I love them, really!) and Freiburger Bächle.

And since we stayed for the weekend, there was enough time to meet up with friends, to do some shopping and strolling ourselves, to go to the swimming pool (Karsten and the little one) and to enjoy some beautiful autumn days. The vinyards were literally glowing in the evening sun, the entrance to the playground looked like a yellow cave and the forest was simply astonishing (less astonishing was a very grumpy hobbit who started to cry loud and long as soon as I reached my favorite spot at the edge of the forest).

Back in Switzerland the trees are almost barren now and I am preparing myself for some long and misty winter months. But until then let’s enjoy these colours just a little longer 🙂

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.
