weekend-ing

Thank you to everyone who complimented my fine "making skills" on Friday. I'm pleased to say that the making continued through the weekend, but, with a little encouragement, I did also manage to venture out and see the world.  

On Saturday night we ventured down to Wannsee for what should have been a balmy mid-summer nights Summer Party. Unfortunately the weather man didn't agree. It was very chilly and with rain threatening no one stayed very long. We stayed just long enough for me to become mesmorised by the clouds before scampering back to central Berlin and watching Biutiful. Well, Matthias watched it and I fell asleep on the couch, but there's nothing new in that.

Other than that expedition there was a trip to Schloss Charlottenburg and the consumption of about 3 kilos of stone fruit - cherries, peaches, mangoes, apricots. I'm eating fruit with everything and anything - breakfast, lunch and dinner and quite often multiple times in between too. Everything is in peak season and I can't get enough!

Beautiful sky catch....the beams just draw you in. Weather reporters are not tops in my book. Do you think the babe likes all that fruit?

What a beautiful photograph this is Clare! Although the weather did not cooperate for you, that sky is amazing. It sounds like you had a relaxing weekend, and that is good, because very soon, you are going to be very busy! Truly so exciting!
Have a wonderful day my friend!

Your weekend sounds very cozy. A trip to the Wannsee is certainly very beautiful. Unfortunately we had no more time for Berlin's lakes.

the only part of summer i love is that everything is in season and so fresh - it almost makes up for the ghastly heat and humidity :)
