Here and there and nowhere

I almost forgot about my vacation! Bf and I are leaving tomorrow to explore the Lava Beds in the north-eastern corner of California, circle Crater Lake in Oregon, confuse stalactites and stalagmites at Oregon Caves, and shiver in foggy Redwood National Park. I can't wait to get out of the city and be surrounded by silence so my synapses can fire again. I've been so fragmented lately. I'm using the wrong words all the time, except when I'm not able to spit out any words at all, in either language. I feel, I think, it just gets lost somewhere on the way out.
When I get back in ten days, I might have a finished oject for you (and no, it won't be Buttercup, that one is staying home!) and some free fabric to give away.
Auf Wiedersehen!

Have fun! Nothing like getting out in the wilds to really get a person back together.

Wait until you see Crater Lake! It's the most beautiful blue you've ever seen! Enjoy my beautiful state of Oregon! If you have a chance to get to our beaches, do it! We recently spent the weekend in a rental home (in our own beach town) and the ocean really re-centered me!

Ich wünsch dir einen wunderschönen Urlaub, erholsame und friedliche Tage um wieder aufzutanken, viele neue Eindrücke um sie als Ideen zu speichern, kurz gesagt, glückliche Tage! Hab viel Spaß und Freude, viel Lachen und schöne Gedanken, viel Liebe und Zeit für dich/euch selbst.
Ich freu mich, wenn du dann wieder da bist,
alle lieben Grüße,

Einen schönen Urlaub und beste Erholung wünsche ich dir! Der Stadt zu entfliehen ist manchmal Balsam für die Seele, und ich bin gespannt, womit du zurückkehrst.

Das "rosa" Knäuel, das du bei mir nicht erkannt hast, ist Holiday von Rowan in Pumice, einem hellen Beige. Es gibt es auch in richtigem Rosa, aber man kann wohl nichts daraus stricken, ohne sich finanziell zu ruinieren. Unverständlich bei einem Viscosegarn, finde ich auch.

Liebe Grüße
Dana

Carola said...

Schöne Ferien! Good luck with the 'defragmentation'. I'm looking forward to having you back with beautiful landscape pictures.

I always used to get them mixed up too, until I read the Famous Five. (Great reference, eh?). When I say 'used to', I read the book nearly two decades ago, but it stuck in my head! :) 'Stalactites hold tight to the ceiling; stalagmites might reach the ceiling'.

Hope you had a wonderful trip!
