playing at the beach

3rd day of birthday celebration. we had a party together with a friend, alex, who lives in scharbeutz, at the baltic sea. dear friends, lots of talks & fun, yummy treats. in her garden i picked red, black and white currants … & plenty of wild edibles (found something new: borage … so delicious, i could not stop eating it! later that day someone told me borage is known to be good to calm & strengthen when feeling stressed. maybe this is why i like it so much?!? anyway, my body seems to need it. ).

although it was a bit chilly & windy we went to the beach … to cold for most of us to take a bath (not for all of us: m. actually had fun in the water!) we enjoyed being creative & playing in the sand 🙂



… second day of celebration 🙂

yesterday – my birthday – i simply enjoyed life: every minute of the day, the congratulations, letters, emails, sms, calls, presents … so many wonderful things happened.

today we were celebrating with some of my family. my mom brought beautiful roses to me:


nice afternoon, but somehow … strange. hm. maybe i’ll write about this later…

wanna see what we had to eat?

12 kg strawberries

yes it’s true – we picked 12 kg strawberries at gut wulksfelde last saturday! i just couldn’t stop … so yummy! but thanks to the rain last week they also were very ripe & soft so we had to eat (or process) them soon. i had strawberries for breakfast, for lunch, for dinner & in between. mixed several glasses with strawberry sauce. made a wonderful strawberry cake for a picnic on sunday:


and strawberry wafers (with buckwheat):


now they’re all gone … & i’m looking forward to picking strawberries again next week 🙂
