Over hill and dale

A few days ago, I opened the secret box, filled with paper, tied together in rolls. I was really excited to read one of the first messages, that my friend gave me before leaving. Each time I will start to miss them, I should read one little message. I couldn’t wait any longer – and of course, I miss my friends a lot – so I read the first message: “Wir sind nicht perfekt.. Wir sind laut und kindisch, albern total viel rum und benehmen uns teilweise wie die Idioten. Aber wir machen es zusammen! Und das macht uns zu besten Freundinnen.” After I read this, I had to laugh, because it’s so like us! Thank you girls!      

The cotton plant

First sprouts of cotton

I really love to watch my cotton plant grow each day. I didn’t expected, that it comes to life so quickly. There is a little story behind that plant: I imported the cotton seeds from Germany as a “home-reminder” and my sister and a good friend of mine have the same. I gave the seeds to my sister, because she will move to the United States soon. I like to imagine her in her new homebase with the exact same plant growing like mine. Let’s see, which plant will blossom and will bear its first cotton.
