Egg Humor ... :)

Letter to my Immune System

Pollens... (aren't they pretty?) 
(photo via here)


Dear Immune System,

Would you please stop attacking harmless and utterly useful pollens of trees, hazel bushes and grasses that happen to pass my sinuses!

Contrary to your believe, these are not enemies. They are neither poisonous nor threatening my body in any way. So, I‘d really appreciate it if you stopped sending an army of antibodies to get rid of the intruders and thus creating an allergic reaction which results in me walking around with a constantly running nose, clogged up airways and watery eyes.

I do not want or need this!

Hay fever is a „disease“ created by your epic failure to realize that a single flower pollen or grass pollen or tree pollen will not kill me.

You didn‘t care about them for over 25 years, so why you suddenly decided to change your mind and make me a member of the club of „Hay Fever Plagued Individuals“ I will never understand.

For the record: I herewith cancel my membership in this club!

Now please be reasonable again and stop this insane behavior as of now! (otherwise I will have to relocate to the seaside. And what will you do then?)

Many thanks.

Sincerly,


(The owner of the body you so wrongly think you‘re protecting from this supposed hazards)

kitchen project - First setback...



(available here)

Okay, sadly enough, I doubt it my fav set of stools will end up in our kitchen... Just found out that the company is located only in America (California to be precise) and as for the price it says "call us to find out"... uhm... somehow I doubt it that this means it is even remotely in the price range Frank and I had in mind ;)

Well... no need to get depressed, right? I'll just keep looking :)

(It's a shame though, because I really fell in love with the ACRYL version of the chair *sigh*)

on a positive note... I "tried out" the orange wall in a PS manip.... I'm convinced now... this wall is going to be ORANGE! :)

Kitchen Project....

Hubby and I decided to "pimp" our kitchen :)

It really needs a paint job and while we're at it... I've been playing with the idea of one bright orange wall. As in really bright orange :)

And since our kitchen counter chairs aren't the most comfortable anyway - and a bit on the boring side - they'll be replaced as well. 

Here's what I have in mind :)



Guess that's my favorite so far :)


Stay tuned for more ideas :)

Early Spring - by Rainer Maria Rilke

Early Spring
Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows' wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,

hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees.

(by Rainer Maria Rilke)
