After a most talkative session of German with my aged and most eager students went to town. I have now officially started preparations for the holiday trip to Britain: went to photographer's to have a passport photo taken, then to the police station to make the application for a passport. I know I have one - the lady behind the desk there checked and told me I'd still have a passport valid until 2011, but what's the use - I just don't know where it is. Or rather, I have a vague idea of its whereabouts. It's somewhere in the black hole of the old house. So I had to report it missing and pondered quite a while just how I would tell about it getting lost. Ended up telling about the move and assuring there is no reason to suspect anybody else might have the said passport. I'm going to get a new one in about three weeks.

Now to teach some more German. After that I'll fetch [ profile] quatorze home and then we'll do some serious business with certain show results.

of stones, thunder and singing

The stones arrived last night while [ profile] quatorze was away. I have to confess to being slightly taken aback when I saw the amount.

Here's the pile... )

Well, it's going to take quite a few times of pushing the wheelbarrow to get all that around the house. Luckily it doesn't have to be ready in a day or two.

Had to unplug everything again today because of some thunder. It rolled around for quite a while, and there have been showers every now and then and clouds surrounding us all around. But while unplugged, did some preparation for next week's course - have a sort of a script for most things in my mind, still there's a lot to do there, but I don't enjoy planning the lessons before I get to meet the people. I also noticed I have been most shamefully neglecting singing. The fact that I don't have singing lessons or ensemble rehearsals shouldn't mean I do nothing about it! So I did. But heavens how I miss the ensemble singing! Not hearing any other voices than your own feels just so - incomplete.
