domestic pleasures

all together: preparing the welcoming of our very long missed friends E and S back for a visit from southafrica , good autumn food with more friends, roasted pork with apples, sage, parsnips, red onions, pimento, pumpkin and potatoes with rosemary.

a very sunny autumn morning, reading the 1971 version of the best german-english-french dictionary by richard scarry, a book me and my sisters owned too as children, this version rediscovered at a fleemarket by my sister J.

riding the bicycle with Lou on our way home on a completely trafficfree 17. Juni, a marginal street between Siegessäule and Brandenburgertor in the early evening, still closed for cars after the big marathon today.
Discovering the surprising beauty of our city made both of us really excited and happy.
