sunny saturday

these photographs of vienna yesterday are deceptive as they don't show how crazily windy it was! but the sun was shining and we enjoyed a lovely afternoon.

yesterday we...
* got up late and ate €1 pizza from the local stand for brunch (oohps)
* walked to naschmarkt where we bought lots of fresh vegetables, herbs and salad... and some lovely tulips
* went to the italian delicatessen piccini (there is also a restaurant) where we bought freshly sliced besaola and salami (YUM)
* took a long walk home stopping for a beer at café rudigerhof and buying freshly baked bread on the way
* passed film casino (for where kev has a voucher to spend... a birthday gift from the lovely jenny & thomas). we must go there very soon!
* cooked pasta peperonata for dinner and ate it with a few glasses of white wine. was really really delicious and so simple.

i hope for more days like these.

    sherry: thanks! when you've imported a picture & highlight it in the draft post, a bar comes up at the bottom of the picture where you can choose the size (small, medium, large, extra large i think). i always select extra large! xx

    dorte: i can imagine things have been very busy! be lovely to hear from you soon. all is good thanks.

  5. Aw, Cafe Rudigerhof! my favourite :) These pics make me homesick for the 5th district!

  6. I have been reading some of your material... It’s great!

    My name is Patrick McCormick and I am developing an internet magazine to serve as a vehicle for the creative output of a variety of other artists. Your material would blend into this new site and help us enlarge its audience. Our magazine will combine news commentary, the literary arts, visual arts, music, podcasts and streaming video. Originality will be our trademark as we seek to find timely, unique and socially relevant subject matter. We are called “The e-Buffet”, please stop by and look at our prototype.

    We have not published our first issue, but are using the internet to recruit contributors. As a contributing artist, you will have your own page along with the right to link to your personal site. You will also receive a percentage of the revenue stream as it develops.

    I am seeking informative articles about life in general from various international locations. If you travel or simply wish to write from your home town, I am open to both. Pictures and artwork are more than welcome.

    Adding your creative “Force” to our collective force should develop a synergy that is unstoppable.

    Think about it...

    Thank you,

    Patrick McCormick
