How was your weekend? Mine was both adventurous and calm, lemme tell you:
yesterday some of the frisbee players, including me, met up to arrange an “Ultimate Frisbee with Refugees” game. In small groups we went to 3 different refugee camps and collected the ones who were interested… this took us a while since we had to wait like 40 min until everyone was ready 😀 But never mind, in the meantime we threw some discs with the kids who were already there 🙂
Together with the kids and teenagers the other groups came with, we were a huge group of over 20 people of every age and 3-4 different languages! It was my first experience with refugees like eye-to-eye and it really made me so happy. This was one of those things I would normally skip just because its unknown to me, BUT since I want to work on my openness towards new experiences this was totally the right thing to do. So I was happy to see how much fun they had, how well we got along and how much we trusted each other! I felt like a child care worker (from a kindergarten) who made an excursion with a play school group 😀 And once again I realized how we are all the same, that there is no difference and that I love giving those kids something that maybe makes their new home a bit more pleasant and homely. So all of this happened in a 3 hours session with direct sunlight and 30 + degrees celsius. I was sooooo done afterwards! Actually my sister and I wanted to do something nice that evening but all I could do was to lay in bed with eyes closed and not doing anything because I had such a bad headache!
So the rest of the weekend I spent in bed and in the kitchen, watching movies with my sister and making pancake-coated pineapples slices 😀 Now I want to prepare some blog posts as I am off to Berlin on Wednesday and to Poland on Sunday. First trip this summer haha! But big travels are yet to come 😉
So excited to cuddle with my favorite Mrs. Bean after 3 weeks that feel like 2 months.
Gosh, how I miss this alien. Living in England with you. Weird, but it was such an intense time (remember Broomhill).
just came home from my Ultimate training – so exhausting yet soo satisfying! 😀 and my parents made a ton of gluten free pasta with coconut sauce and another ton of veggies swimming in there (the photos are from Portugal tho 😛 GF pasta with vegan pasta sauce and falafel) ! Ah carbs are just the best! (Have to get another spoonful after writing this post haha! And yes it is 11 pm and I am proud of eating #carbsafterdark 😀 )
Today I did some cleaning, drawing and then went to the forest to meditate. It went well but at some point I got aware of the mosquitos… they were so quiet but still there! So I left my spot in the midst of sand, moss and trees and found myself a nice lonely bench 🙂
Also I cycled to the sports field and back, which is quite far, but I experienced once again that being out to walk or cycle without time pressure ist just so liberating! Pure joy and abundance 🙂 Looking forward to the weekend! Packed with friends and love! xx Jule
As I am working from home it really feels the same, whether it is a official holiday or not, but I am using the long weekend to get some things done with other people. That’s why I’m heading to Berlin tomorrow to meet up with Anna and another friend, gosh, we see each other so rarely atm, but we are still deeply connected which makes it easier 🙂
Yesterday evening I went to Ultimate Frisbee the second time, alone, mixed with 20 or so students that I didn’t know. Well, it went super well! Believe me when I say that I haven’t done anything nearly as exhausting as this for a very long time… but our game was wrong haha and I even scored a few times 😀 Besides, the team spirit is really special… really good! Unlike when climbing or canoeing or cycling, you really are part of a team and have to “Work” close together! Bought a frisbee now and am ready to challenge Lotte next week haha ❤
1 banana, handful pineapple chunks, handful frozen berries, hot water (to defrost) topped with cacao, orange, pineapple, walnuts,coconut and berries!
This was my breakfast, smoothie bowls (and any kind of bowls) are just so photogenic! Apropos photos… there may or may not be new ethical clothing outfit pictures up here shortly! ❤
