Indian Summer

A 3-week vacation started at the beginning of September – during which, for various reasons, we didn’t go anywhere unfortunately – just ended and we both started working again and we both got swamped with stuff which backed up during our leave. I guess now we could use a real vacation where we could get away and relax for a bit ;-) Well, maybe in the Christmas vacation or next year.

After a period of colder weather, it got surprisingly nice outside and we have now what they call Indian Summer. It’s very nice outside, no clouds, blue sky and temperatures above 23 degrees. A bit of mini summer at the end of autumn. Bit foggy and chilly in the mornings but after that quite nice. It’s supposed to last until at least end of next week or so. So today we got out and we went to two Flee markets, one in Esslingen and one in Stuttgart.

Freya is a big fan of flee markets. I was slightly skeptic at first (didn’t really go to flee markets before I met her) but I have to admit that among the impressive  quantity of junk she did manage to find quite a lot of nice things. Or things she restored and made them look a lot better than simply nice. Like the table below, for example. For the table itself we drove all the way to Frankfurt but the 4 chairs we got cheap from one of the local flee markets:

After putting quite a lot of work in it, now it looks like this and it replaced our living room table:

It’s actually a heavy wood old english table and the whole set, nicely fixed as it is now, would sell for quite a bit should we want to. Which is not gonna happen, we like it and it’s gonna stay in the living room.

Unfortunately we didn’t find anything at the flee market in Esslingen and not much at the one in Stuttgart. But at least it was really nice outside and afterwards we lamed around a little bit in Stuttgart. Made pictures too:
