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 🙂

cumpleanos!

… 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:

spring in hamburg

coming back to hamburg the city is greeting us with wonderful weather. springlike temperature, sunny & warm. i found stinging nettles, dandelion, goutweed and leafs of the lime tree in our and our neighbours’ garden & next to our house! & what a beautiful sight out of our kitchen window: the cherry tree is blowing 🙂

raw birthday party

today we were visiting a friend to celebrate her birthday. she made a marvellous chocolate-cream-cake:

yummy!

yummy!


it doesn’t look raw at all, does it? i guess even non-raw-foodists would like it …

have a look at the whole fancy cake, and the other tarts:

happy new year!

… to all of you out there … may all your wishes become true! follow your heart, whereever it leads you!

i am still feeling the joy of a wonderful evening – celebrating new year’s eve with some dear friends & my daughter. this has been the first new year for 13 years without my son … he decided to celebrate with his father. i was missing him … and two very dear friends who could not be with us … anyhow we have had lots of fun, playing, dancing, talking, eating …

party-days

two days ago we were celebrating my son’s birthday. this is his birthday-cake … i wanted to give him a cake he would like (as a matter of course) but we all could eat …

yes – it is raw. and yes – he tried it and liked it! happy me 🙂

we had a great day together – building his new lego star destroyer, playing carrera race (we haven’t done this for years, but it was really fun!)

another party … the way our kitchen looks like these days. i have found cherimoyas and kakis at the central market & lots of greens in the nature reserve. we have got a wonderful package from orkos. & i prepared some tasty dishes for the birthday party … so we have bowls & plates full of fruit everywhere & a brimful fridge:
