The start of the knitting season

[su_dropcap style=”simple” size=”5″]W[/su_dropcap]hile I write this post, there is a thunderstorm outside, and Micro and I are curled up together on the bed with an slightly uneven division of work: I work, he sleeps and snores. A cosy day – would it not be for the construction noise next door. Although, I have to be fair, it’s so much better than Monday or Tuesday where we had sledge-hammering going on behind our heads (or what felt like behind our heads). Can’t wait for our little coffee shop to open again to get away from all this!

What else happened this week? G went to Zurich on her regular work trip – and, of course, brought back some chocolate. Oh, memories of going to the Sion Festival as a child – for the masterclasses (not for holidays, definitely not, unless your definition of holiday includes several hours of practising your instrument and sitting in masterclasses for almost the entire day) – and meeting all our friends driving down at the first stop on the motorway in Switzerland – to buy chocolate. The amount of string instruments that were, accidentally, left in the restaurant were staggering. Thankfully no-one ever noticed or knew how expensive they were!

With cooler weather the knitting season starts again! I hope this year I can finish my cardigan, which I started …. (mumble, mumble) years ago (Wool and pattern from Lana Grossa). To be fair, I did finish the stripy jumper before and I pledged not to buy any wool until I have at least finished the cardigan. Ah, coffee + cake + audio book + knitting + sleepy dog = sounds like a great weekend. Currently re-listening to the first book of Riyari Revelation (in German and love David Nathan reading it) and can’t decide which book to listen to next. Hm, I still have 2 weeks left before my subscription renews, maybe you have a suggestion?

What else? I started to work through a new ethics application, I went dog-walking with our dog-walking friend (OMG, you really know what you have done, if you go out with 6 dogs!), ate too many apricots (but not enough in general), and sung a lot of Mozart to counterbalance the building noise. And for this reason, I’d like to put this burger on the breakfast/brunch menu for the weekend. I’ve been waking up with headaches lately (from doing too much, I know), maybe this will help for that, too.

Not wanting to leave you without showing you this young-at-heard bridesmaid. How cool is this?! It makes me miss my grandmother. I think, she only made it to one wedding of her grand-children before he memory self-destructed too much to go places.

What are your plans for the weekend? Going for walks, doing something for your fitness, staying home and relaxing? What ever you do, have a great one!
