On the Big Screen...



That one was my fav book of Cecilia Ahern. It constantly made me laugh and cry. I loved it. Let's see if the movie can capture that magic I found in between the lines back then... Time for a re-read, I guess...

Feeling of the Day...


I thank you God for this most amazing day, 
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, 
and for the blue dream of sky 
and for everything which is natural, 
which is infinite, 
which is yes. 
- E. E. Cummings

The autumn wind is a pirate. 
Blustering in from sea with a rollicking song 
he sweeps along swaggering boisterously. 
His face is weather beaten,
 he wears a hooded sash with a silver hat about his head... 
The autumn wind is a Raider, pillaging just for fun.

When ideas float in our mind 
without any reflection or regard of the understanding, 
it is that which the French call revery, 
our language has scarce a name for it.

Fall has always been my favorite season. 
The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, 
as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.

Begin Again... Perfect soundtrack for a relaxed Sunday. I really love this song but the whole album is fantastic as well. And the movie is great, too. I left the cinema feeling so happy and musical...^^

Feeling of the Day...




Daylight, full of small dancing particles and the one great turning, 
our souls are dancing with you, without feet, they dance. 
Can you see them when I whisper in your ear? 
- Rumi, as interpreted by Coleman Barks

Feeling of the Day...


Ideals are like stars;
 you will not succeed in touching them with your hands. 
But like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, 
you choose them as your guides, 
and following them you will reach your destiny. 
- Carl Schurz, 1859

Good morning! Something to sing and dance along... as I (almost) did on the tram on my way to work... I might not be a fan of Monday mornings but this really lifted my mood!

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. 
Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. 
Smell the rain, and feel the wind. 
Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

Renovation Update...

For those of you who didn't know yet (because I haven't invited you in to lend me a helping hand - yet!), I am currently renovating my future apartment. Same adress, just one floor above. Hopefully I'll be able to move in by the end of the year... We've been re-constructing ever since the beginning of the year because we had to revolutionize pretty much everything. Now we're getting to part where floors/walls etc. are being done and interieur questions come up...


I've spend the last week with painting all rooms. Still one more to go...On Saturday my IKEA kitchen was delivered (I choose this one but with different elements and a black work disk)!

So here are some highlights of my weekend:
  • I'm allergic to the paint (obviously) I used for colouring the walls (only when on my skin... and I had it sprayed all over myself LOL) which resulted in some nasty skin irritation on arms and face including a swollen eye ;-)
  • Whenever I move, something hurts. Especially my arms and shoulders are sore... 
  • Developed 3 blisters on my right hand. I ignored the slight pain and take it as a sign of hard work^^
  • Yes, you can put together an IKEA kitchen all by yourself, but only if your sister and her bf are craftsmen geniuses! Had our private Tool Time session (without any incidents apart from me losing some screws on various occasions or falling over something on the floor...
  • No, going to IKEA on a bad-weather Saturday afternoon (because you need one thing to put the kitchen together) is the worst idea ever. All it did was to cost me a great deal of time and some nerves... 
  • Chocolate is essentiell for being successful! :-)
  • You know who your real friends are: they spend days with you painting and dragging stuff around, endure your various complaints (believe me, there were many!) and bring food and beer in the eveningto cheer you up and admire your achievements (and tools)! :-)
  • Yes, I did have fun!

CONCLUSION:
No, I will NEVER EVER move again anywhere else. As much fun as the whole renovation thingie is, I won't do it again! EVER!

Because this is the perfect soundtrack for painting the walls in my apartment...

On the Big Screen...


Quite some years ago I've read Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time and The Universe in a Nutshell simply because my grandmother had bought them and everyone was already saying how incredibly good they are. Even as a complete layperson when it comes to Physics (and I admit I was never too interested in that matter) it was so well-written in a way to easily unterstand the complex matter! I really really enjoyed the read.

Some time later I caught BBC's film on TV by chance... Okay, so I'm a huge Benedict Cumberbatch now fan but back then I had no idea about him and still was impressed with both the storyline and the actor.





So right now it's Eddie Redmayne's turn to portray Hawking. Really really curious and excited about the new film... Movie date, I'd say!

That old September feeling... of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air.... 
Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee 
in that annual autumnal beginning, 
as if last year’s mistakes and failures 
had been wiped clean by summer. 
-Wallace Stegner

It is what you read when you don’t have to 
that determines 
what you will be when you can’t help it.
