Happy Easter 2013

One year has past.
Easter has come again.
The Easter decoration in my village looks like last year too.
Happy Easter was the post last year.
Only change is that Easter is earlier - and that it is much, much colder this year too.

In some places they say this Easter is more like the Christmas we wanted to have in December.
In respect to all the cold and snow.
And for some even in the amount of presents they get.
Not so much in chocolate eggs and bunnies; not so healthy.
Now many place non-food things in the Easter baskets.

Well, I'm not. ;-)
But I will give you presents too.

Photo presents.

Sunrise at 7:25 on Saturday from my kitchen window.

Frozen Motion; an impression of the cold times this Spring.
A hot fire to warm you up again.
My maxi chocolate egg -

and the surprise it contained: an artist sheep.

=)) Perfect present to me. Thank you Easter Bunny.
Now all I need is just some free time and good light (and warmth) and I'll be back to creating some more paintings.
In the meantime, I'm working on these little candle holders.


too all; if you celebrate it or not, or some other festive on this weekend.
Have a good time, enjoy yourself, enjoy life.

Mr Rabbit and Reulek - the lost adventure

While Mr. Rabbit was here for his visit,
he had an adventure of the different kind.

He was hunted down by a Reulek.
Mr. Rabbit was inspecting a rock with small cave like openings.
He did not notice a Reulek following him.
Sneaking up from behind a tree, ready for ambush.
"Help, help. Don't shoot. Let's be friends!"
And so they became friends for a while.

 Mr. Rabbit
and the Reulek take a train ride together.
"Look, humans at the train station."
"Kill, kill!" shouts the Reulek.
And jumps out to ambush them.
When finally reaching the village Mr Rabbit was visiting, he had to realize his friendship with the Reulek was only short.

The village was being invaded by a multitude of Reuleks.
 And this is the place they all had come from:

Guess, the snow and cold was too much for them to stay in hiding there all winter.

Mr. Rabbit's Big Adventure - in Germany(18)

Hello, Mr. Rabbit here one more time.

This is my last day in Germany.
I'm getting ready to travel to my next location.
We had another sunny day.
I got to play with the shadows on the wall.

Incidentally, I'm too big to fit through the slit of this mail sending box.
So, Micha will have to find another way for me from where I can start my travel.
Maybe I fit in one of these boxes? Which one will it be?

And, yes, I can take my green bag along too. And the ear warmers and jacket, of course.
I might need them where I go next.

Bye, bye, Micha. We had a good time and lots of fun. Thank you.

Mr. Rabbit's Big Adventure - in Germany(17)

Hello, Mr. Rabbit here.

My visit is coming to an end.
Soon I will move on.
To may greatest surprise I had some visitors myself on Sunday.
Well, OK, they came to visit Micha and her family to belatedly celebrate a birthday.
For me, it was a "good-bye" day cake.

The baker is +Miriam Höltschl and she wrote how she made that special  Rainbow cake .

Coming closer to inspect the cake. It smells a bit yummy.
Cake is being cut and distributed. See the rainbow?
And those flowers in the pot next to me brings in Spring feelings; together with a lovely sunshine now.
I wonder what the garden would look like in  Spring?
Right now it's all white with snow.
And there are such fancy things in the garden!
And the cat walks through it too. I found the tracks, the cat stays away from me though. =)

Mr. Rabbit's Big Adventure - in Germany(16)

Hello, Mr. Rabbbit here.

Today, I bring you some comrades I met while visiting. They are to be found all over the place.
And I think there are even more, but I didn't find them.

The guardians at the entrance; enjoying the warming sun rays.
This early in the day it was still a bit cold for me though.
 I went back inside to visit the Lion, and the reclining Lady. She was not liking my visit that much.

Can you see the snake and the lizard hiding in the palm tree pot?
This gecko had me cornered!
So the two huskies came to protect me.

My best friends were these two bears though.
Guarding Micha at night.
 My visit will soon be over. Will I miss them? Who knows what other new adventures I will have. =)

Mr. Rabbit's Big Adventure - in Germany(15)

Hello, Mr. Rabbit here again.

Today was the first day it was sunny all day.
So, after the cleaning at home, Micha and I went for a tour through the village.
Doing some "tourist" like sightseeing.
Well, not all places were tourist places. ;-)

The creek has an (artificial) waterfall!
Looks like Spring, but it's still cold enough to wear my ear-warmers.
And here is a big stack of firewood. In private possession though.
The mayor's office and the free firefighters garage underneath the ex-gym.
A small fountain at the biggest crossing in the village, where 4 streets meet.
Please, do not drink the water.
(It's frozen right now anyway.)
And finally the entry to the "Kloster" church. It's not a monastery anymore.
The village though was founded around it  about 1000 years back.
And I was quite surprised by the many people walking around. Didn't see that many on the cloud covered days during the week. Seems, the sun has made them all come out at the same time. =)

Mr. Rabbit's Big Adventure - in Germany(14)

Hello, Mr. Rabbit here again.

After that long snow walk I was really hungry.
So Micha and I cooked up some vegetable with spices and rice for a hearty meal.

The basics: carrots, celery and leech.
All cleaned, and cut up into bite sized pieces and boiled.
Adding some fresh tomatoes and green curry paste.
Finally, cooked some rice, placed it on a plate and put the vegetable stir over it.

The simplest things can be so good.
