• Each day

    Happy New Month Dear Readers!

    Each morning I make it my goal to have a glass of hot water with lemon and ginger on my small balcony. I love the freshness of a German summer morning when the air is crisp and cool and a light jacket is a necessity this early. The theater of life is stages on the street below where each morning the neighborhood is buzzing with childrenโ€™s voices, adults are rushing to work and the elderly line up at the supermarket. Sipping on my hot water, I whip into shape the plans for the day and continue with life.

    For the first time M. and I experimented with indoor photography where the light doesnโ€™t usually play in your favor. The beauty of poor light photography lies in the shadows; when the employment of the imagination is imperative. Naturally my favorite photo is the one below.

    Much love,

      I typically make a cup of green tea in the morning and check my email. This is how my usual day starts. I find having a routine is so beneficial to starting your day right.

      A good 15 minutes run everyday just lifts up my spirit. A cup of tea and a warm shower afterwards makes my morning complete.

      You do write in a lovely way, Tatyana. Always a joy to read.
      Well, my day begins at 7am, sitting here at the kitchen table, looking through into the conservatory, and further on into the garden.
      At this time of year I breakfast on Greek Yoghurt and blueberries; followed by organic cornflakes and goat’s milk: followed by various breads and more tea than is good for me, probably. In the winter the cornflakes are replaced by porage, cinnamon and honey.
      Then, after arguing with the newsreader on the radio; turn off and carry on with my day.

          Believe it or not, I do not use sugar (unless I’m making cakes). But natural sugars are hard to avoid.
          Fortunately, I have a waistline still
          Love that Karen Millen dress on you. It fits perfectly. x
