dear summer

there are still so much things to do as long as summer lasts. summer is way too short here in vienna. and almost everything i love has something to do with summer... that's why i always get into panic around this time of the year. the start of august tells me, that summer will be over too soon (you never forget the long years of two months summerbreak as a kid, where the start of august was telling that school is starting sooner or later). in august days are getting longer, the sun starts to get a different light than around midsummer, august smells like the ending of something and not like a start... i always prefer the start of something to an ending.
but i've learned a lesson this summer: i do not need and do not want to feel bad about packing as much freedom, time outside and time off from work into these short months... because this is the only time i really feel free and always good about everything. i could jump through the whole summer - jump of joy and high spirits. i want to feel and live all this happiness to save it for days that are not so bright and shiny...

here's my plan for those last weeks of summer in this year.

to do.

. go for a swim in the evening.
. go for a swim in the morning.
. make lime granita.
. hold feet into the sea or a lake.
. go hiking.
. swim in a lake.
. learn to walk on a slackline.
. listen to hundreds of songs of the awesome lucksmiths.
. start to write a diary.
. learn to be quiet.
. take tons of pictures.


. high heels.
. my new vintage dress.
. a bow around my neck.
. straight hair.
. sandals.
. way too short skirts.
. self made pieces.
. a new bag.
. grey chucks, which i've got to buy first.

eat and drink.

. lime juice.
. lime tarte.
. watermelons.
. mojito made by my little big brother.
. vegan burgers.
. homemade granita.

  1. These sound like beautiful plans. I wonder if I'll miss Summer once it's gone. I've only been in Vienna for 2 weeks now and it's so hot compared to my former home, San Francisco. I suppose when I have my 1st snowy winter ever, I'll wish I had enjoyed Summer more. Thanks for finding me on Twitter.
