It smells like summer rain tonight in Berlin. The asphalt is hot from the last few weeks of sun, a few droplets fall, evaporate, a few more fall, a bit of lightning crosses the sky and nothing really happens. But it smells like rain. Warm and humid, like a big blanked that clothes the city for a few hours.
For an hour now I've been waiting for water to fall from the sky and spare me the trips to the kitchen and back to the balcony with my two big water bottles, which is how I water my tomatoes (I planted the whole package of seeds again, so there are a lot of tomatoes this year, but compared to the whole package of zucchini seeds I plated a couple of years ago, the tomatoes are a piece of cake to handle). Rain would relieve me of at least one of the tasks I still need to accomplish tonight.
Since the SouleMama sponsorship started two weeks ago, things have been really really busy for me. Everything seems to be happening at once all of a sudden. I have had so many orders that I need to reorganize my days, build in more time for printing and shipping. It makes me very happy, of course, but it had me reeling for the last two weeks. I hope things will get back to some kind of normalcy, in the flat and on this blog (this is today's way of asking you for forgiveness for abandoning you for such a long time). The flat, and especially the kitchen will be the more difficult part of it, I'm sure. Some things seem to have grown legs in there, innate objects suddenly come running into the hallway, asking for their mommy to pick them up...
I very much hope to share with you a bigger project I have been thinking about for a while now, maybe at the beginning of next week. If the image I absolutely want and need to produce for it would please put itself neatly on a piece of paper.
These are exciting times. But what about that rain and those tomatoes now?!
