Analogue Sunday yesterday: no nothing on the computer.
This should become a habit.
Gestern waren wir beim Herr der Ringe Konzert in der Grazer Stadthalle. (Die Eintrittskarten waren Heidis Weihnachtsgeschenk für mich) Die Warschauer Sinfoniker spielten Howard Shores Soundtrack für die Filmtrilogie. Es gibt nur wenige Dinge, die besser und kraftvoller klingen als ein 200 Personen Orchester. Sehr schön.
Spent the weekend in Salzburg. First of all, to meet Lisl and Sameel with whom we had stayed in Brisbane. It was so nice to see them again. On Sunday we took the opportunity of fabulous sunny weather for a hike up the Nockstein near Salzburg with Heidi’s parents. We were rewarded with a beautiful panorama of the Northern Alps.This is one of the really nice things about Austria. Heidi and I renewed our vow to get out in the mountains more often.And we found mushrooms while walking. It has been a while since I found so many. That was a perfect dinner for five people.
We went to dinner at Midori. Pretty neat asian place beneath the Schlossberg. Miso soup, noodles. Very nice.Best thing though was the lamps above the corner tables. Lots of notes attached to the lamps. Many ideas, quotes, poems, maybe shopping lists in a multitude of different languages.
The total lack of warm water and the recent drop in temperature forced us to replace our warm water boiler. With the professional help of Herbert and Stephan. The DIY heart of mine jumps with joy and pride looking at our new archievement. However, the soup we retrieved from our old boiler was quite a view. To think that we washed ourselves with this and felt clean afterwards…
These are a couple of pictures from our Scotland trip.

Another highlight of summers in Graz: Film classics at Franziskanerplatz. This years seris started with „Some like it hot“. Still a hilarious comedy after all those years. Fun times.
Did I mention that the showings are free? Just take a seat. Wonderful warm evening. Photo is borrowed from Metroblogging Graz because the dog ate my camera.
