New Year’s Resolution

I made one. Actually there were two, but #1 is to eat healthier which is something I am trying to do constantly – except around Christmas – so it doesn’t really count. So my one and only New Year’s Resolution is to take at least one photo a day and upload them to flickr. To […]

Our garden

I have already spent a lot of time in our little garden. It is really small with about 60m² and less if you substract the terrace. Still I have managed to plant a lot of plants. If all goes well we’ll not only have a lot of fresh herbs and a few beautiful flowers but […]

Fall Fotos

I went out to get some ‘seasonal’ pictures for this year’s calendar. I even got up early and did some sunrise pictures. Check out the whole set. I also ‘rediscovered’ the flickr toys to play with 🙂

Best’est’ apple dessert ever

I can’t believe I have only made this dessert once before: the Tarte Tatin. All you need are a few delicious apples, butter, sugar and – for the quick-hack version – some frozen puff pastry. You don’t even need a recipe (the one in my first try was kind of weird anyway). Still here’s what […]

Also wir sind jetzt Experten – für Duschkabinen. Wir waren gestern in 2 Baumärkten und haben uns dann im 2. (Bahr) auch beraten lassen. Der nette Verkäufer hat uns bestimmt 40 Minuten die Vorzüge und Nachteile verschiedener Typen von Duschkabinen erklärt … und man muss sagen, er war nicht schlecht, er hat es sogar geschafft […]
