That’s How We Do … Green Asparagus

With ‘tatoes, fried tofu and almonds (& tahini & balsamic vinegar):

spargel

The woman above us is sending soap bubbles towards the red setting sun and never has our suburb looked so beautiful. Or playful.

Yesterday, it was even warm enough to sit outside and read Martin: last week, I had managed to repair our huge old blind and clean all the highway-dusted surfaces on the balcony.

It’s a bank holiday today in Germany, a good thing, too … well, HE, for example, has cleaned all the windows in the afternoon, which he likes to do, while German fathers have been carousing around with their Bollerwagen. And yes, even after ten years of marriage, I am happy when HE stays at home, even though I don’t expect him to do anything special, just BE. I might be what you’d call a hopeless case.

Studying? Yes, I am. I can.

So, tell me: do you feel as terrible as I do when reading about the 1000 dead people in Dhaka and knowing we were and are supporting slavery, abuse and death? I know I do.😦

    Yes, I do feel terrible and really consider changing what I CAN DO about it …😦

    Je pa lepo brati, da je po desetih letih še vedno … lepo🙂

    Šparglji, njam!😛 Tudi Finska je imela včeraj prost dan.🙂 Mhja, jaz tudi včasih kupujem v H&M, Cubusu in podobnih tekstilnih verigah…😦

      Kaneli, kakšno imate vreme pri vas? (dopust se približuje in pri nas je spet ful mrzlo …)
      V bistvu problem niso samo poceni verige, temveč čisto vse verige … ta dražje (Benetton!), take, ki ne zmorejo nadzirati vseh dobaviteljev, ker gre za preveliko količino podatkov (Ikea!), une, ki jih direktorji dobavnih podjetij v tretjem svetu pri nadzoru vlečejo za nos (vse) …

      In kakšne vrste pošasti za malce denarja raje riskirajo življenje 1000 ljudi? Masovni morilci, seveda.

    Vreme je trenutno res krasno – sončno in toplo (do 20 stopinj). Samo upam, da bo tako tudi ostalo. Končno sem si priskrbela kolo (rabljeno, a kupljeno na nekem servisu na Bulevardiju in lepo popravljeno) in res rada kolesarim.😀

    Mhja, jaz imam celo stanovanje IKEA, pa športna oprema tudi ne vem, kako je bila narejena (Nike in Reebook). Upam vsaj, da je Indiska bolj etična (pravijo tako, ampak kdo ve). Samo kaj naj, zgražam se že, ampak dokler finance ne dopuščajo več (npr. Marimekko, Globe Hope)… bo pač H&M in Cubus, made in Bangladesh. Mislim pa, da se je v današnjem svetu nasploh in žal težko izogniti izdelkom iz sweatshopov…😦

      Ja, seveda, tudi dragi izdelki so lahko iz Bangladeša … Pa z morilci sem mislila na lokalne podjetnike, ki tako grdo ravnajo z lastnim folkom …

      Hura, lepo vreme na Finskem! Pri nas niti ni …
