29, dreamer, LARPer, occasional writer, occasional artist, procrastinatrix par excellence. Slowly getting used to all this "growing up" stuff. Learning more about renovating old farm-houses than I ever thought possible or desirable. Got a Master's Degree in English Philology (with Japanese Studies and Cultural Anthropology on the side, for what it's worth). Always have too many projects going on at the same time. Would need a 36-hour day in order to have a chance of getting at least a /few/ things done. Particularly now that I have an adorable toddler to look after...

Still on that walk through the snowy woods. There were so many beautiful and magical views, but this is probably my favourite.

Through the Wintry Wood
When the meteorologists announced a couple of weeks ago that there would be no snow (again!) this winter, the entire winter, I was pretty much immediately convinced that we'd get at least one week of proper snow. If they hadn't said a thing, I would just have hoped for it, but after that announcement, I just knew there would be snow. (I guess that's some very deeply ingrained mistrust of meteorology, huh? Or just of long-term predictions.)

Sure enough, as soon as the primary Christmas holidays were over... we woke up to a minor snowstorm. The storm stopped towards afternoon; the snow stayed. Then yesterday was beautifully, brightly sunny, so we went for a walk in the woods. I loved this almost-tunnel through the low-hanging branches, although the picture doesn't really do it justice -- I don't know how to adapt the pic in order to add depth, I guess. Oh well! Still pretty, I hope.

Ich mag Ihre Kunst uberhaupt gern!
Ich mochte einen Kunstler werden, aber ich kann nicht zeichnen :(
Es tut mir leid, meine Deutsch ist schlecht. Ich muss deutsch ubungen.
Amazing art, and pardon my German.

Vielen Dank!
Es gibt ja zum Glück verschiedene Wege, Künstler zu werden - auch wenn man nicht zeichnen kann. Kopf hoch und nicht aufgeben!
Ihr/ dein Deutsch ist doch gar nicht schlecht! Die Grammatik stimmt vielleicht nicht immer, aber es war alles gut verständlich. Übung ist natürlich immer eine gute Idee :)
Thank you again for your kind comment and for the faves!

Happy Birthday!

I notice you’re from Germany. Ton of history there! I visited the Rhine Valley

and Black Forest years ago and thought it was gorgeous!

I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t know much about their own

country, much less anyone else's.  :(

I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness
about what's going on in the rest of the world. Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from another country, if I've done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)


This update is about your home! Consider it a birthday present.…


GOD bless you now and always.

You're welcome. :)
