Cinnamon rolls always make me think of Astrid Lindgren books. Maybe it’s because they appear several times, and because IKEA sells them, too.
They were really good but a little less sweet than I’d expected, so no recipe this time, yet. I still want to find an ideal one (or make this one better!). Gladly, my mother and grandmother – I made these last weekend when I stayed in the Shire for some days – aren’t too fond of sweet sweets, so it was a real hit with them. ^^
It’s only a lake. But I’m happy with whatever swimming water I can get, and with last Thursday I also started Daring Deed No. 20.
This is the second half of 11th grade. It’s far less packed than the first one, I obviously learned from that, and it wasn’t as spontaneous as the first one, too.
I feel like I’ve written rather little here lately. Actually, I just checked and recognised that I’m still good with averagely one post every five days this month, but it feels less. In good times I write twice or three articles a week, so about one per week seems not so much to me.
But don’t worry, I won’t give up the blog! (Just in case you wondered. So many blogs I loved stopped updating or even shut down during the last few months, it’s like an epidemic.)
I also feel a little sorry for my projects list. It doesn’t seem to get any better with my stacking up the ideas and projects month after month and still not finishing them. Well, I’m just rather busy at the moment – I feel like I never had such an amount of homework during my university career before! I don’t say it is a lot, it just feels like it.
I’ll hopefully be back with livelier words after my presentation tomorrow which is the “what I do” from the title. I’m reading. A lot. About early bronze age axe depots. And I’m drinking coffee. As you can see above, together with my research copies.
I hope you’re having an awesome time meanwhile!
Back in 11th grade I started not to simply write my time tables, no. I drew them. This is the first one of three that I drew during my time in Frankfurt. I actually tried to continue this habit I’d come to love when I moved on to university, but something always got in my way to finish the pictures. This semester I’ll try again.
When you read this, I’m in Cologne and hopefully standing in line already for my ticket to the RPC (or Role Play Convention), Germany’s largest RPG con.
Nevertheless, I’m back again with a Sartorial Saturday and the hopes for more in the future. I found that there are several places on campus with good spots for the self-timer and enough light to take photos, so maybe I’ll be able to stick to it this time. ^^
- T-shirt: C&A
- trousers: Orsay
- shoes: Waschbär
It’s a rather simple look, but I love how much I can do with accessoires here. These linen trousers are a favourite pair of mine, by the way, and overall is this the kind of outfit you find me most often with lately. It’s not that I don’t like Lolita and Mori anymore, I just have to do something about my wardrobe. ^^
- bag: long time ago in a punk shop far, far away…
- rubber wristbands: Emilie Autumn merchandise
- black creole/ black and silver stud: Bijou Brigitte/ christmas marke stall, probably
- Union Jack badge: Accessorize
- coral necklace: heirloom, antique
- plastic bird needle: heirloom, vintage
- hair band (sadly not really visible, but blue tartan): selfmade from a strip of fabric
I love how the colours of these fabrics work together ♥
I’ve dragged a lot of the April Projects on to May. As mentioned before, the cosplay was about five projects alone. So I just copied the list, took one down and added four new projects at the end:
- - pink-white striped wrap top
- - harem pants
- - new ren fair outfit
- - garden skirt
- - painting for Teli
- - late birthday present for the Elfin One
- - time table
- - door curtain
- - summer pajama
- - flannel dress
I already think that I’ll drag the ren fair outfit on again, but I’ll at least certainly try!
