Right now (as I write this) must be my favourite time of the whole week.
It is Friday early evening, I just came home from work after a long week. Will is on his way home too and soon I will hear the keys at the front door and he will come in, also happy that the weekend just started. We will sit on the couch and chat about the day and week before we are going to make some dinner and later maybe read on the couch.
It is this time of the end of the week which feels like a mini new years eve to me. Like something is behind me and there are a few days off before something new will start.
It rained a little on my way home and its a bit cloudy outside. I have not many plans for the weekend which feels so good. Maybe just watch a movie, get the sewing machine out again and have some good chats with friends and that will make me happy.
I wish you all a good one.

Oh Sydney Summer you are the best. Long blue-sky-days and warm nights with open windows, watermelon fingers, salty skin, drying beach towels, sandy floorboards and bathrooms, freckles on my nose, cooling ocean swims, long shades on the streets and houses, mango for breakfast lunch and dinner, happy faces, bay swims, reading in the shade, dripping ice creams......and so much more

I love watching movies and lately I had the pleasure to watch some good movies in the cinema. Thanks to the time before the Oscars there are some particularly good ones out there. We watched the new Coen's brother movie 'Inside Llewyn Davis' which was beautiful cinematography and music, today I saw 'Dallas Buyers Club' which was amazing (sad) and the performance of the both main actors really incredible. I also really enjoyed the new Spike Jonez movie 'Her'. The atmosphere and colours of the movie are amazing and the soundtrack with Karen O and Arcade Fire just beautiful. I could listen to this youtube compilation of some of the movies' tracks for hours. Do you have any movie recommendations, let me know?

When I got the photos back from the lab and had a look at the bush walk we did on Bruny Island I felt instantly transported back to Tasmania. The colours of the bush landscape are so beautiful, the air so fresh. I adore the wild bushes and flowers and we even saw an echidna on our walk. I was so excited I completely forgot to take a photo it.

After half a day in Hobart we took the ferry to Bruny island. The sun was shining and we got more and more excited while waiting in line to get onto the ferry which seemed particularly busy before the public holiday. Setting slowly over we could feel how our little holidays were about to beging and how we left the busy city times behind us. On Bruny island we got welcomed by wide meadows, cottages here and there, cherry signs, lots of sheep and more water and sun. After reaching our cottage, which was overlooking the sea and was placed up on a hill, we very quickly unpacked the wine and cheese we bought and enjoyed the amazing view before we got back in starting to make dinner and started the board game adventures.
I am still getting used to my new camera and while being on a bush walk trying to rewind a full film I opened it too early even though I was sure that I had completely rewinded back. Well, I guess also some light leaks have their charme....

Hobart, I will always come back to you! It has become a tradition for us to go down to Tasmania over the long Australia Day weekend for a little holiday. It was our third time, this year with three friends staying in a cottage on Bruny island. The day we landed we spent a few hours in Hobart, had a great breakfast, went of course to the amazing MONA museum, which again was mind-blowing and filled up our car with food for four days. I think I could easily spend a whole day just walking around the cute streets of Hobart, such a wonderful place.
