1. It’s been a sweater summer so far. Although we’ve had some nice days, not a single day has passed this year where I didn’t have to wear a sweater. I got the light, striped sweater at a flea market for 2 euros and I’ve been wearing it non-stop 🙂
2. The cats have been pretty ‘home-y’ lately, spending most nights inside instead of adventuring around the neighborhood. We blame it on the awful lot of rain and thunderstorms we’ve had. Also, my basil is growing bigger and bigger and it’s about time for the first harvest – any good pesto recipe suggestions?
3. Lots of thrifting! I saw this couch a couple of weeks ago at our local thrift store. Of course I didn’t buy it but I’m sure it has found a good new home by now 🙂
4. Strawberry cake! The first one I made this summer. For some reason it’s pretty much impossible to find tasty and affordable strawberries around here 🙁
5. I’ve spent waaay too much time driving around this summer. I miss biking everywhere but pretty much every time I go to my new apartment I have to bring boxes, tools or bring trash to the recycling center.
6. My grandma is in rehab now and she’s finally better. It’s such a relief after visiting her in the hospital pretty much every day for 6 weeks to see that she’s able to get out of bed again and even walk a little bit on her own!
