Dear friends! Let's hope August will be the Summer month we can all enjoy! June and July have been far too hot. We've seen the red moon but now it's time to admire the traditional yellow August moon.

Zu uns kam auch keinen Regen.
It is too cool now to sit outside in the evening.
We planted today some new flowers and the bulbs for the Spring. We have many own tomatoes this year. We planted the potatoes too, but it is a bit too early to dig them out.
How are you and your cats doing?
Ich habe leider Kaffee und Eis verpasst

Teddybärenmutti - Let's enjoy coffee and ice cream on our terrace. Soon it will be too chilly outdoors but luckily we have a nice fire place indoors. :D

Chris - Sundays are ment to be lazy! :D

Knuti-Judi - Bying fruit and veggies directly from the farmers is always something special. And, of course, the food we buy is guaranteed fresh!

We have a cloudy sky, but no rain.
Only 21°C feels cool after the heat.

Today I will have a lazy day, maybe
a short tour in the evening.

I wish everybody a pleasant sunday!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - the sun is shining for a change but it's not hot but pleasently warm.

Yeo - I hope your day at work will not be too exhausting.

Britta-Gudrun - I've read Obama's speech. - Enjoy your garden!

Chris, Ludmila - Let's hope this Autumn will be worth the name. :D

I have now published the last part of Ralph's reports from Aalborg in KWM. Enjoy!

Dumba, Annemarie, Filomena, Ralph, Dave, Knuti-Judi, Patricia, Leti, Teddybärenmutti, Bärgit, Sarsam, Inge, Christine and everybody - Although many of you can't write here I hope you can at least read my best Sunday greetings to you all!

Einen schoenen Sonntagmorgen!
Yeo, du musst arbeiten gehen - ich pflege freiwillig ein bisschen im Garten die Blumenbeete, solange das Wetter noch mild und sonnig ist.

Ich melde mich gegen Abend wieder, wenn ich dann noch "piep" sagen kann.

Mervi, die Rede von Obama findest du unter: Obama speech McCain im Internet.

LUDMILA - we also had a nice day with sun and wind.
It was the ideal weather for biking. :)

MERVI - I hope for a colourful autumn and snow in the winter.

It would be nice to have the autumn with the nice colors. Sometimes it is this way :)
I do not like the short days in the late autumn and in the winter. On the other hand we have to take the seasons and the weather how they come. :)
We had a nice day with the sunshine
Danke für die Karte

Just listening to the former US Presidents speaking abou t the late John McCain. Their dignity reminds me that the United States is bigger than politics. The USA will endure.

Ralph - I wish you a pleasant weekend admiring polar bears in the net and making plans for your next polar bear expedition! I hope it won't be raining too much during your stay in Germany.

Britta-Gudrun - Teddybärenmutti and I had so much fun making the stories and we were very productive, too. There was a new story almost every week during the happy old days. I think it's good to remember the happy moments although we at the same time get reminded of what we've lost.

Chris - For me the four seasons are important but unfortunately I can't see such a big difference here like I could see in the north. I'm curious to see what the Winter will be like this time. Some gurus say it's going to be a 'Vargavinter' (a Swedish expression 'Wolf Winter meaning extremely cold weather), some gurus say it's going to be very mild. Hmm, as usual I will rely on Mimmi's and Nalle's weather forecast. :D

Speaking of old stories. I was wondering why there was such a 'hausse' in the number of visitors of KWM but now I found the explanation. There's on old article of Muschi and Mäuschen and somebody has put link to that article in an American website. It's great to notice even the 'oldies' get so much attention. :D

MERVI - ich hab nichts gegen den Herbst, wenn danach nicht der Winter käme.
Allerdings ist die Stimmung hier noch eher sommerlich. Der klassische Herbst-
monat ist für mich der Oktober. Und kalendarisch fängt der Herbst erst am 22.
an. Manche Bäume lassen allerdings schon jetzt ihre Blätter fallen, auf Grund
der Trockenheit. Hoffentlich bekommen wir dann keinen so kalten Winter...

I wish everybody al pleasant weekend ! :)

Teddybaerenmutti, die Geschichte von dir im KWM zu Knuts Vorbereitungen fuer Flockes Besuch ist einfach goettlich geschrieben. Du bist eine fabelhafte Erzaehlerin mit viel Humor!
Erst mal sich selbst fein machen (zum Friseur gehen), dann die Wohnung putzen und schließlich Essenseinkaeufe machen - ganz wie im menschlichen Leben, wenn Besuch kommt. Aber auf Knut bezogen mit den schoenen Collagen sind die Vorbereitungen um ein vielfaches witziger - vielen Dank, auch wenn die Story schon etwas aelter ist.

On Monday it will be the St Giles Fair for two days in Oxford. Autumn does bring shorter days and longer nights. In my case this means snuggling up in bed with the radio on and surfing the net on my knuphone.
The countdown to Berlin continues and the weather looks dry there but wet for my Monday and Tuesday in Gelsenkirchen on the way home.
KWM reminds me of the fun we had with Knut. I have posted a link in Knutitis Our Little Prince for the casual readers who visit but do not post.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - it's the 1st of September and my favourite seasons are soon here! Even the Back Room is dressed in 'Ruska colours'. :D

Chris - I hope people are thinking of the poor animals looking for food and helping them when/if it's possible.

Britta-Gudrun - You just reminded me that it's soon time to close the Knugarden and bring the duckies in! :D - I hope we can finally get rid of the Summer time!

Ludmila - I'm sure your gang is assisting and supervising you in the garden. :D

Yeo - I'm glad to hear you're an 'Autumn person', too. Sometimes I have a feeling people think I'm weird when I say I love Autumn. :D - Enjoy your free day!

We've seen a lot of nostalgie in KWM this year and the 'trend' continues .... today I published the first part of a story that contains five parts - 'FLOCKE VISITS KNUTI'. I will publish all parts in due course.

I wish everybody a pleasant Saturday and hope September will be a good month for us all!

Good morning dear all and Welcome September!

Now ist my favourite season beginning, the autumn.

@ Mervi

A statue for Juuso and Sulo is a good idea.
Ein Denkmal für TD und Knut wäre auch eine schöne Idee gewesen. ;)
Ich erinnere mich noch gut an das Hin und Her, bis es endlich die kleine Knut-Statue gab.

Here in Berlin is a very sunny Day. I have some to work in the Garden. I have one day vacation. One day! My Boss is very generous. :D

I wish you all a wonderful first September-Weekend!

Good morning! Guten Morgen!
The sun is shining, it is not hot. We have a lot to do in the house and in the garden.
