CornerView – sunshine

Actually, I wanted to show you the splendid Amsterdam in the sunshine.
But I didn’t manage to create a blog entry in the last few days.
At least I have downloaded the images already on the PC.
And so I will tell you soon from the trip with Elsa to Amsterdam.

Previously a little Bavarian country air in the sunshine for you.

CornerView – somewhere else

So. This time I have a few pictures of Ratisbon for you.
We spent on a sunny Sunday afternoon there.
We strolled around the city,
we had an ice cream (delicious and super sharp: chocolate with chilli!),
enjoyed the sun,
watched the people,
looked in the showcase,
and at the end we had a great pizza.

CornerView – bright

Actually I wanted to show you some photos of Ratisbon,
and how it is there when it is bright.
The weekend was wonderfully warm and full of sunshine.
But today I was with Frieda on a walk in the evening light and
… see for yourself how wonderful it was.

CornerView – once upon a time

Once upon a time … a long, long time ago…

History is wonderful and maniacal.
I like to visit historical sites,
ancient castles,
gardens,
museums
and somehow sacred places.
Because here I can experience history.
I imagine how has been that life.

The Abbey Fontenay was built in the 11th century.
In the 13th century there lived hundreds of monks.

I don’t want to be a monk, I admit honestly.
But I wonder how many different fates are behind every man who has gone along this path before me.
What happened that he became a monk?
Was he a monk who was able to live with himself?
Or was he one of the terrible monks as from the book “The Name of the Rose” by Umberto Eco?
Were the monks sent by their parents because they were poor?
Or because too many children in one family could not go to school?
And how was life when he has to renounce everything, and maybe never wanted?
It never did voluntarily?
If he knew he has to give up the great love that he has something to eat?
Or he pondering over something never?
Took he his life as it came from? Without self-determination?

I can’t imagine to live such a life.
But it worked, I think.
It had to work.
Whether you liked it or not.

Once upon a time … a long, long time ago … and yet not so far away.

CornerView – hunger

The last few days I was sick with a flu,
lay in bed or alternatively on the couch …
and my hunger was zero.
So.
I ate a little soup.
And lost a little weight.

That’s my girl when she has to learn,
then she is hungry for sleep.
If she has to go to bed at night,
then she is not tired.

Quintessence: That’s life.

CornerView and Goodby to March

My dear friends,
in bloom and Goodbye March fit together perfectly, right?
The March says goodbye or I say goodbye to March,
the month that brings spring.
You know, here in Bavaria the spring reaches us at last.
While in the north, at the North Sea, in Berlin, Frankfurt and Hamburg
already spear the first buds and appear the first flowers.
Here, in Bavaria everything takes a little bit more time.

DSC_80061426412490672-tile

First I want to tell you about my month, one of the most boring in this year,
and then I will show you “in bloom”.
Or what is going to happen soon … here in Bavaria.
As I said, my March was an uneventful month.
He hadn’t much to offer, but he wasn’t bad.
Here is what was going on:

– a friend of mine and her girl came to visit me.
We gone to the playground with lovely warm weather,
after that we ate apple cake I had previously baked,
and here is the recipe for the delicious and crispy apple cake:

300 g spelled flour
1 ts baking powder
145 g sugar
180 g butter
1 pinch of salt
15 ml of water
1/2 lemon
750 g apples
1 ts cinnamon

– 180 g flour, 70 g sugar, 100 g butter, water and salt knead to a smooth dough
– do the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes
– peel, rub, squeeze the lemon
– Apples into quarters and sprinkle with lemon juice
– preheat oven to 180 degrees
– roll out the dough, line it in a form and prick it with a fork
–  prove the dough with apples, sprinkle it with grated lemon peel, with a little bit sugar and cinnamon
– process the remaining flour and sugar and margarine to crumble and spread over the apples
– bake the cake in the oven on the middle rack 50-55 minutes

– a friend of mine, my daughter and I visited the cinema in Regensburg,
we saw a German comedy
with the wonderful Palina Rojinski, a Russian-Jewish actress and presenter on MTV
and Elyas M’Barek, a German actor with Tunisian roots …
and I tell you, when the man laughs, then ♥ …
but enough 😉 the movie was funny and very romantic.

– Before the cinema we were in a bar and drank delicious cocktail.
It was not so late in the evening and Happy Hour.
Do you know Happy Hour? Food / drinks for half of the price?
Behind us sat a young woman who took a strong advantage of the happy hour,
minutes later she fell from the chair and could not walk
-> Conclusion: the ambulance had to come.

Friends came with their children and there was another apple cake
(because it was so good that I baked it all over again!)
We went for a cake-earn-walk.
So. First walk to deserve the cake, and then eat the cake.

– The best in this month, I now have a week off. I will not do much:
to learn english (I was already four times in the course and it’s great fun),
to read a lot,
to have dinner with my colleagues
and to celebrate Easter … but more about next month.

So. Here’s a summary of what I saw and read this month …
Movies:
Traumfrauen (the German comedy)
Blood Diamond (great played by Leonardo DiCaprio)
Series:
Better call Saul (with the very brilliant Bob Odenkirk)
Suits (with Gabriel Macht … and yes, the man is even pretty to look at)
Bloodline – a new series on Netflix. Until now, thrilling, so I want to look further.
Book:
Game of Thrones (reads quite easily in English)

Thank you for your patience and for reading.
Here is the CornerView with my “in bloom” or as spring comes into my kitchen.

CornerView – imagination

Imagination –
and I can only think of one word: spring.

With each passing day spring comes more and more,
with each passing day it becomes brighter in the morning,
with each passing day the birds chirping happier.
With each passing day I can feel the sun more on the face,
and with each passing day I can smell it more intense:
spring.

CornerView – looking up

I have already told you that I learn English.
English in Medicine.
English at home.
I read English books, just “Wild” and just “Game Of Thrones“.
I watch English movies and series, just  “Better Call Saul” and “Suits“.
I have the feeling, especially when I read, I understand a lot.
When the English teacher talks to us, then I understand quite well.
And when I watch series, then I understand a half of it (Thank God there are subtitles ;))
But if I am speak, then it’s all over.
Then I can’t think one word, then all records are gone, who were aware of before.
Weird right?

CornerView – warmth

Warmth
… what a beautiful word.
It fits perfectly to the winter, which is on its last legs.
Perfect, because spring is coming,
and at the morning  the first birds which come from the south chirping.
Perfect, because I went to work and for the first time today
it has become this time getting light.
Perfect, because I’ve seen the first tender buds on a bush,
and I’ve seen the sun sometimes more than a few minutes.
Perfect, because I’m anticipating the smell of spring already in the air,
and the snow is only sporadically in the fields.
Perfect, because this is a wonderful time of year.
