|At the graveyard|
|My parents garden|
The weather I was hoping for in my last post already came this weekend, hooray! I enjoyed it sooo much.
On saturday morning my mother and I went to the cemetery to put some roses on my grandmas grave. There are many beautiful trees there and the atmosphere is so peaceful.
Saturday afternoon and most of sunday I spent in my parents garden reading, sunbathing, drinking coffee and having poppyseed bundt cake.
I hope you also had a wonderful weekend.

I took this picture before I went to work this morning and felt a little bit sad. Today is the last day of summer and I don't think of it as a good summer. It was often thundery and too hot or raining, well as far as I remember and I can count on one hand how many times I sat on my balcony.
But then I realized how nice those red leaves are.
The color is a promise for a nice Indian summer, don't you think? And this made my smile.

The graphic novel adaptation of "Der Himmel ist blau, die Erde ist weiß" by Hiromi Kawakami really touched my heart. And I love the drawings by Jiro Taniguchi.
You can see that he has put much thought into each of his characters. At the end of volume 2 is an interview with him and Kawazami, where Taniguchi explains how he imagined Tsukiko, one of the main characters. For him she had to be a little bit chubby and when she is for example irritated she draws a face like a child might. And Hiromi Kawakami said she liked the decisions he made.
The words for the speech ballons were taken directly from Kawakamis novel.
I liked her style and read subsequently "Herr Nakano und die Frauen" her second novel translated into german and can also recommend it.
What book have you enjoyed lately?
