well, i know this is not an english Expression, but i like the metaphor - so i just translated it literally...
we had some "soul-dangling" at the Weekend when we visited friends from munich, who rented an apartment in the alpine upland, very Close to the schliersee.
we walked down to the lake...
it was not overcrowded - it was warm, but rain forecasted.
the graveyard around the church showes quite some of the wrought-iron crosses, which are typical for the Region.
i love tombstones that are telling stories.
i photographed this one to investigate back home about the Facts of the writing on the Stone: "after accomplished world record flight"
the buried man here (Horst Pulkowski) had taken a flight in dec 1938 in a two-seated airplane Arado Ar 79 and has beaten a former record (with a plus of about 2000 km), flying 6303 km non-stop from libya to india.
on the flight back in Madras (india) a collision with a bird of pray caused a Crash in which he died.
now, is this tragedy or what?
(his companion survived).
in the afternoon the clouds were concentrating to bring rain...
so we looked for shelter in a café
in my greed i had eaten half of the huge cake (covered with Marzipan and lots of cream... about two Billion calories, enough for the whole day) before it came to my mind i could photograph it with the Cappuccino for t/tuesday
now, quite some time at These weeks is occupied with the european Soccer Championship.
(in the two-years rhythm of world- or european games i mutate into a fan. most of the time in between i decide to ignore this Sport, as i think the income and Transfer fees are unethic in their dimensions meanwhile. but then i can´t escape the maelstrom of this competition anyway.)
this time when i watched the first game i always thought: what is that small patch on the arms of their Shirts...
Looks like the grateful dead logo "steal your face"...
then i learned it was the official logo of the competition.
they look similar if you only see them in a very small size...
a good omen?
i´m afraid: not. the missing german Players for the next game are too many...
but i enjoyed (well, the result of) the Penalty Thriller on saturday.
and of course the Team of iceland. great sympathy from everywhere for this Little Country.
for weeks now the weather changes almost daily...
i won´t complain about lacking heat (as i actually can´t stand it so well), but it is raining very often. hard to make plans for outdoor activities.
so i went through some bookmarked links and came across this one:
making t-shirt yarn by alma stoller and decided to give it a go.
i have a few old T-Shirts of son#1 laying around, which are damaged and no longer good for anything but Recycling.
the process in the video is very easy to understand...
... but in the end i obviously made a wrong cut, so i have a mother and child ball.
doesn´t matter. the big one is about 3,5 Inch in Diameter.
i think i will use this yarn for couching on quilts. my vague plan at the Moment.
