Sommergruß (3) / summer greetings (3)

(English version follows below)

Aus den Heckenrosenblüten vom Juni sind inzwischen viele, tiefrote Hagebutten geworden. Das Wetter verhielt sich tatsächlich der Jahreszeit (nämlich Sommer!) entsprechend. Der Himmel war blau, der Wind pustete schöne weiße Ostsee-Wolken über uns hinweg, die Krebse krabbelten vergnügt über den Meeresboden (was für einen leichten Gruselfaktor beim Baden sorgte) und es gab reichlich Kuchen, Melone, Sonne, Wasserplanscherei und Familie. Abends dann lange Gespräche mit Blick auf Sonnenuntergänge, Kaminfeuer und Hugo – das Ganze übrigens mit einer meiner liebsten Freundinnen und zweien meiner Patenkinder, während Karsten arbeiten musste.

(Zu diesem Anlass bin ich auch das erste Mal seit über vier Jahren wieder Autobahn gefahren und musste auch nur ab und an mal mein Handgelenk ausschütteln, damit ich vor Verkrampfung keine Sehnenentzündung kriege).

The dog rose flowers from June have turned into many, many deep red hips. The weather was finally behaving accordingly to the time of the year (which is summer!). The sky was blue, the wind was blowing beautiful white Baltic-Sea clouds across the sea, the crabs were crawling happily from here to there (and added a slight fear factor to  the swimming) and there was plenty of cake, melon, sunshine, water fun and family. Complemented by long talks, sunsets, open fires and Hugo in the evening – everything with one of my dearest friends and two of my godchildren, while Karsten had to work.

(And it was for this special occasion that I was driving on the highway again for the first time since more than four years and I just had to shake my hand a little bit every now and then so it wouldn’t get inflamed due to the tensity).

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.
