Old habits and a cup of milk

Last weekend I did something I haven’t done for years…I started drawing again. And here is my Lennard for my sista to make her smile: And here is a picture of my Hannibal drinking milk:

Eat, sweat, love

I know I haven’t posted much this week so let’s look up what I have to tell you. Hannibal had his birthday party! Officially I chose 24.7 as his birthday (it’s Punic Hannibal’s Birth year 247.) but due to his bad condition we decided to make him a birthday week… And here is a nice…

Nice weekend, little Carthaginian!

My brave little Hannibal has pulled himself together and – considering the fact that last Friday we really had to take it into account putting him to sleep – we had a perfect weekend together.

The Story of a Cat, Snakes and the Devil

Yes, you are right I just took a little walk for you and came back with lots of pictures and stories. This time our destination was Natternberg, a small hill not far from us. What is special about Natternberg? You must know that it lies in a very flat area, very very flat, just this…

Of Syracuse, Cotton fields and an unpopular journey

Welcome to La Trattoria di Leonardo, our little Italian restaurant, open just the week of my Mother’s birthday! This Monday was my Mother’s birthday and we decided to make an Italian Birthday party for her with ciabatta, tonno alla siracusiana, breadsticks, cantuccini and Italian salad, bottles of wine, prosecco… My sister and I had to…

Hail to the cook and may the fork be with you!

Today’s post’s just about cooking as I promised…. Our Pentecost dinner was a mixture of Greek, Turkish and Northern African food: The decoration was opulent with gold but at the same time not overdone. In the evening I served home-made simit (Turkish sesame yeast rings), I made them rather small, not as they are usually…

Little Lionheart

Just a few pictures of my little Hannibal, who has been diagnosed chronic renal insufficiency (yeah I know after losing Mimmi this March)…he has become so thin, but this guy has been fighting his whole life after his accident, he won’t give up…I hope he still has some power left…

The curious incident of the bunny in the Easter-time

I know I’m not really blogging a lot the last weeks…maybe I get more time and a clearer head in the future…. But here’s a short review on our Easter weekend, starting with Good Friday and our Meatless dinner: I made a Pasta with mussels and squid 1 glass fish stock 200 ml white wine…

The tragic fate of Humpty Dumpty and the Fish-Footman

It’s Friday again 🙂 and a really warm and sunny one here in Germany, much too warm for this part of the year, more May or June than March…but it was a great day for cleaning our balcony. Our tomatoes last year had been a disaster, so we decided to plant only bell peppers and…

The cat formerly known as Paula Pummel

I’ve already told you about my Mum’s new cat Paula Pummel, but I have to rectify some facts: there is no Paula Pummel anymore, because now welcome Molly Moppel!! Mum decided to rename the sad and anxious cat, so she could leave her past behind and I think she starts enjoying her new life. First…

New Season: bring out the bunny!

After St. Patrick’s Day we decided that it’s time to search for our Easter decoration: Look at these two guys! Aren’t they just great..  

We need to talk about Lennard

Before we have to discuss serious events concerning our cat Lennard, I want to start with pictures of our ‘One day ahead-St. Patrick’s Day Dinner’ We started to day with delicious Oatmeal Bread (made by me) – yes, no Soda Bread, I never managed to make a proper one so I gave it up. The…
