sunny weekend in Mötzow

While I'm typing this and looking at all those great sunny pics I'm wondering where I catched the stupid cold.
Since yesterday I have a sore throat and a little bit fever.
I went to the drugstore and picked up some homeopathic stuff and I'm taking it since yesterday every 30 minutes (when I'm not sleeping).

Due to some very important meetings today I have to work the half day untill I'm able to go home to rest.
I'm really pissed that I'm having a cold again. I had a big fat cold last month and had to stay at home for 1 1/2 week.
I'm hoping that this cold won't last that long.

It seems that my body has difficultys to fight against flu virus since I had my chemo 2009. I never had a flu or anything else before chemo. Even if all the people around me had a flu it never caught me.
But the time changes and it seems that I have to be extra carefull and pack myself in warm clothes !!

But back to my weekend.
I spent 3 awesome days with my dad and my sis in Mötzow again. We went there last year already and I totally loved it.
Our vacation started with a stop in Brandenburg. It's a lovely  town and perfect for a little shopping.

My sis, my dad and I bought some clothing and my dad got himself sunglasses.
He choose the sunglasses himself because they looking like blues brothers glasses.

We stayed there for a few hours untill we rushed to the small holiday village near Mötzow.
We had some yummy bread roll with fish and rested for a few minutes near the Havel canal.

The holiday village was awesome as always. This year we stayed in the old bungalows. The bungalows are not  new but I adore the GDR charm.
Last year we stayed in the new built houses which are pretty nice.

(the house we had last year)
 Each of these new built houses comes in a different colours . There are 5 finished houses right now and they are still working on some new ones.

On friday evening a few more people from stutterer self help group arrived. My dad is a member of this self help group and he and another guy organised this weeked for stutterer and their families.

Gladly we new already a few of them from last year and it was fantastic to see them again.
We chatted a little bit but my sis and I were so tired so went to bed very early.

The saturday was mostly for relaxing. While the members of the self help group had some kind of workshop about burn out my sis and I relaxed in the sun.
In the afternoon while most of the members went to visit some famous places near Mötzow my sis and I rented a boat (like last year).


(row, row your boat)

(perfect marine look)
We rowed for 3 hours untill our hands started to bleed. Hahahahaha...not really. My sis was in a rowing club when she was younger and while she was a student. She is very proffessional (not like me) and she has super power in her arms.

(houseboat...I would love to rent one next year. But it's pretty expensive !)

When I wasn't rowing our boat I did some craft work. Yes I did some craft work in the boat.
I prepared some hexagons before I left on thursday and I finished them all last weekend.
I made the decission to cut hexagons from nearly all the fabrics I own. It's the perfect project for traveling because you only need some yarn, fabrics and some paper hexagons.

(very concentrated)
(Done !!)
I made only yellow ones last weekend but I already prepared hexagons from my purple, orange and red stash.

(perfect craft for traveling...even on a boat)
In the evening we met with the other familys and members for a barbecue. We had some awesome conversations and we stayed up till 2 am. I'm not sure when I caught the cold but I'm pretty sure it was that night when I was sitting outside for hours with only a longsleeve, a denim shirt and some shorts with leggins.
Not much for a still cold spring evening ?!

On sunday my sis and I just relaxed and "worked" on our tan.

(there was a kind of regatta )
I had really hard time to say good bye to that awesome place. But gladly I only need to wait 1 year. My dad and the self help group rented the place again for next year in june.
It means next year I will be able to go swimming too because the weather is much nicer.
