Countryside near Ottbergen/OWL

Yesterday was another beautiful day, and we used the opportunity for a longer walk. What saddened me, however, was the fact that there is almost no nice view here, which is not covered with wind turbines. On my sketches I simply left them out. How does Pippi Longstocking sings so nicely: “Make your world as you like it”. That’s what I’ve done in my sketchbook.

Gestern war wieder so ein schöner Tag, den wir dann auch für einen längeren Spaziergang genutzt haben. Traurig gestimmt hat mich allerdings die Tatsache, dass es hier bei uns fast keine schöne Aussicht mehr gibt, welche nicht mit Windanlagen zugebaut ist. Auf meinen Skizzen habe ich sie einfach weggelassen. Wie singt Pippi Langstrumpf so nett: “Mach dir deine Welt, wie sie dir gefällt”. Das habe ich in meinem Skizzenbuch umgesetzt.

cat riding on a vacuum robot
@Micha Klann

One of my acquaintances bought herself a vacuum robot. This robot was supposed do its job during the night, when all residents of the house were asleep. But that was not the case. While the human inhabitants lay in their beds on the upper floor, there was no sleep to be thought of among the animal housemates down stairs. The cat had declared the new device to be its mobile coaster. The old dog walked through the rooms, annoyed and grumbling. And the mice finally had a clear path now, because the cat had no more time for her actual job. In the meantime, my acquaintance has intervened and changed the chronology: The robot now runs in the morning when the cat is asleep and the dog is outside. And the mice invasion has disappeared again quickly.
