Dear friends! This Summer will be as 'strange' as the Spring was. I hope the sweet memories of the Super Summer 2007 will help us to stay in a good mood!

Guten Tag zur Mittagszeit!

Mervi, danke - ja, ich bin wieder schmerzfrei, gottseidank!

Schoen, mal wieder etwas von Giovanna und Quintana zu sehen, auch wenn sie offensichtlich trotz der Zusammenfuehrung nicht mehr miteinander spielen. Den Rueckwaertssalto von Quintana meine ich auch oftmals bei Giovanna gesehen zu haben. Jedenfalls spielt sie nach wie vor sehr kreativ.

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Britta-Gudrun - I hope you're feeling better today and can breath without pain.

Patricia - Please, forward my wishes of speedy recovery to Karine.

Ludmila - Mimmi and Nalle are mostly napping when it's very warm. Mimmi has such a thick fur so I can understand she's looking for cool spots in the flat.

Chris - The photo of the albino baby totally melted my heart. What a cutie pie!

It's been a long time since Anita's reports from Hellabrunn but today you can meet GIOVANNA AND QUINTANA in KWM again!

I wish everybody a most pleasant Tuesday! Please, wear a mask and keep the distance!

Good evening Dear All,
Yesterday was tradition day, starting with ironing. That was Part 1 and today I did Part 2 with some other cleaning jobs and a tiny little bit of gardening.
Yeo, thank you for your report about Zoo Berlin. I am glad to read that you finally could see more than only a few cute panda ears. It was a good idea to come early. But please take good care and do not overdo yourself.
Britta-Gudrun, here in Everbeek, the heat is also completely gone and today, we had a chilly wind all day. Compared to last Friday, the temperature dropped with about 10°C. Result: Karine got a serious cold. And I hope and pray that the Covid is staying calm and not comes back.
And now, I need a warm relaxing bed.

Guten Abend, obwohl der Tag schon fast vorbei ist!

Mervi, gut, dass du Dumbas Kommentar erwaehnt hast, sonst haette ich im KWM nicht mehr nachgeschaut. Tja, Dumba, wer zu spaet kommt, den ...na du weisst schon.

Mich quaelt ein verklemmter Brustwirbel mal wieder, der mir beim Atmen wehtut. Gottlob kenne ich mich mittlerweile damit aus, sonst koennte er als Brustschmerz bei ernsthaften Herzproblemen missdeutet werden.

Ich hoffe, es hat bei euch genug abgekuehlt. Ich habe heute Morgen gefroren!

Ich wuensche einen guten Start in die neue Woche, mit der auch der Sommer-Sonnenmonat Juli schon seinen Einzug haelt.

Good day! Guten Tag! Again the morning passed by so quickly. Before I noticed it's already noon!

Ludmila - Thank you for the second report from Pairi Daiza! This park sure has everything a park needs .... and more .... :D

Chris - I had hoped more rain here but the sun is shining again. I prefer to watch the 'quarter of the moon' in the night sky. :D

Dumba - Your comment in KWM made Sisu and me very glad. :D

I wish everybody a most pleasant and cool week!

I wish everybody a pleasant start to the new week.
Bei uns kuendigt sich gerade ein kleines Gewitter
an, welches der Garten gut gebrauchen kann.
Gestern war ja einiges los hier. :)

We got a bit of rain today. It is no more hot outside.
You are always busy.
Super, dass du die Pandas gesehen hast.
Ich freue mich, dass du wieder da bist. Ich nehme an es geht dir besser.
We need an evening drink

Britta-Gudrun - Of course, it's bad luck to be robbed but at least the robbers couldn't get your valuables!

Dave - I hope you can get yourself tested so you can visit your mother. It's understandable that there are great precautions for everybody's safety. - You've been very busy lately so I hope you have some Knutsteiners in the fridge! :D

Patricia - Oh bear, what good times we had at Joe's! Now Joe's is gone just like the whole neighbourhood. - You are a real cosmopolitan - British, Canadian and Belgian! :D

Yeo - Thank you for the report from the zoo! What luck you could meet Meng Meng and her kids.

Leti - I hope you're coping fine with the heat. Is the zoo in Thessaloniki still closed - or has it been closed at all?

Hello dear Knuipians!

Heute war ich wieder mal im Zoo. Mein Mann wollte heute wieder seine Mutter besuchen. Leider darf bisher immer nur eine Person zu Besuch kommen. Ich habe das furchtbar bedauert. :) Um meinen Kummer zu �¼berwinden, habe ich mir vor einigen Tagen ein Zeitfenster ab 9.00 Uhr gebucht.

Ich hatte riesiges Gl�¼ck. Zum ersten Mal konnte ich die kleinen Pandas richtig sehen. Sie sind ja so niedlich! Richtige knuffige Pakete, die man auf den Arm nehmen und wegtragen m�¶chte.

Paule lag oben auf dem Kletterger�¼st und schlief. Pit wollte ihn wecken, kletterte hinauf und wurde mit einer Backpfeife begr�¼�?t. Dann doch lieber gemeinsam mit der Mama baden. Leider ist das Badebecken so klein, da�? MengMeng es mit ihrem Popo ausf�¼llt.

Ich sah ihnen lange zu. Schlie�?lich ging ich weiter zu Katjuscha, die in ihrer H�¶hle schlief. Nat�¼rlich wurde unterwegs jede zweite Bank von mir belagert.

Als ich wieder zu den Pandas zur�¼ck kam, waren sie in ihrer Stube. Am Eingang standen die Besucher Schlange und zwei Ordner lie�?en sie nur etappenweise ein. Ich war so froh, die Pandab�¤rchen bereits gesehen zu haben.

Das mit dem Zeitfenster klappt ganz gut und Vormittags sind auch nicht so viele Leute da. Trotzdem war ich nach zwei Stunden v�¶llig kaputt. Ich bin eben doch nicht fit.

Ich w�¼nsche euch allen einen sch�¶nen Nachmittag!

Good afternoon Dear All, we have nice temperatures here and a gentle (sometimes harder) breeze. At least and finally, it is again OK inside and even Fleur is more comfortable with this situation.
Annemarie, I definitely go for the Kalbsleber (one of my favorites). OH MY, it reminded me of the good old times at Joe's in Berlin.
Dave, your energy is endless!!! even with the heat and the humidity. I hope that your friend can come home safe and sound and without trouble. And also that your test allows you to finally visit your mother. Maybe you will remember that my father was a Canadian and my sister Miriam planned to go to Canada in June for the celebration of the 50th wedding anniversary of our eldest cousin. Of course, due to the Covid,all had to be cancelled.
Funny detail, a few weeks ago, I was cleaning up old papers and there I discovered my children passport. Unbelievable but true, when I was born, I was having the British nationality.

Good Morning.

Belated Birthday greetings to Dumba. It sounds like you had a good day.

It is hot and humid here in Waterloo. We have been getting August weather in June. Usually June is hot and dry with humidity starting in mid July to most of August. The air conditioning is working hard these days.

I was in Muskoka since Thursday to finish opening my friend's cottage and lay in the rest of their supplies for 14 day quarantine. They left California on Friday morning and are now in Iowa. Tomorrow they will reach the Can/USA border between Michigan and Ontario. They should be able to cross the border, but it really depends on the border agent. Canadian agents are usually more forgiving when it comes to families.

The regional health unit is allowing visits to my mom's retirement home, but strict conditions apply. I have to get a negative Covid test and must visit within 14 days of the test results. The visiting area is in a tent set up outside. Masks must be worn and distancing must be followed. No touching or gifts. I will try to get tested today.

Then a motorcycle ride, a walk and when the shade hits the garage maybe a coat of paint on the garage door. I have to start getting my tools together as tomorrow I start building my cousin's pool deck. It will probably take 3 days since I am working alone.

Have a nice peaceful Sunday.

Oh ja, Icecream war auch so ein "Ohrwurm" wie Petite Fleur und macht direkt gute Laune. Ich scheine die einzige zu sein, die sich ueber die Hitze nicht zu beklagen braucht, denn unertraeglich heiss war es hier an keinem der letzten Tage.
Deshalb kann ich bei dem ueppigen Menu von dir, liebe Annemarie, auch mit vollem Genuss das Wiener Schnitzel mit Petersilienkartoffeln und Babyspinat-Salat geniessen!
Im Knugarden war wieder jede Menge los und Ludwig hat dich auf Trab gehalten beim Torwandschiessen. Das Surfen ueberlassen wir sowieos den juengeren Jahrgaengen, nicht wahr?
Den einzigen Monat mit 28 Tagen vergesse ich nie, denn an diesem Tag wurde mir vor Jahren meine Handtasche mit allen Papieren gestohlen - nur das Handy, der Fotoapparat und alle Schluessel waren in meiner Manteltasche, also hatte doch noch etwas Glueck im Unglueck

Ansonsten ist hier ein ruhiger Sonntag mit Nichtstun angesagt, das kann ich sowieso am allerbesten!
Allen Hitzegeplagten wuensche ich die ersehnte Abkuehlung.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! I'm still hoping for rain and thunder. I hope I don't have to wait too long ....

Annemarie - Oh bear, what a wonderful morning you had with our white, fluffy beach boys! I can imagine how happily they were surfing and Ludwig must be very pleased with himself after so many goals! :D - How kind of you to send a photo of the merry gang to Herr Graf. - My dinner choice today is the Wiener Schnitzel but I'll have my dinner after the sunset! I found the code a bit tricky ... :D - Thank you so much for the sporty Sunday bulletine!

Dumba - I wish you a 'cool day' and hope your legs will soon be as good as new! The heat is awful so I'm truly grateful I don't have to do anything special. Only sitting makes me sweat like Niagara Falls! :D - Icy ice cream is certainly needed!!

In KWM you can meet TONJA AND HERTHA again in Gudrun's report. I wish everybody a cosy, lazy Sunday!
