A little bit of Brazil

I got so many ideas, but why can't the days have more hours - or why do I have to sleep so much? Next to spinning theres quite a lot going on. We have to move soon, and moving in this region, especially if you limit your future home to a couple of villages who have the right distance, location, price and connection to public transport is not an easy task. Of course there is my day time job. I spent yesterday's lunch break to pick cherries from the university's trees (with permission of course) and in the evening I went to a strawberry farm to collect some berries fresh from the patch which is actually the best thing to do. From tomorrow onthey will also offer raspberries and other good stuff. The next days I will be occupied with converting them to some jam and cake.

I have lots of fun with the soccer world cup, currently I am on the second place of the institute's prediction game. Germany is still in and will play against England on sunday! Today's match will decide if Switzerland will stay in the tournament. And the team is getting a lot of support in their home country:

I am busy with spinning more yarn, I finished Southern Africe. It is just a bit sad that the host country has already left the game. I got the right ingredients for Uruguay and Argentina and can spin Chile and USA. Soon more to come.
I also spun a small yarn of Brazil before I ran out of the yellow fiber (I got some more in the meantime). It has already found a new home: the little son of a knitting friend is a big fan of Brazil, and it is just enough to make a scarf in a good size for him.
