Happiness is an attitude. Or what do you believe?

Beautiful monday. Crazy monday.
I miss my hubby. I am allready thinking about a lower position at work as long as I can get home daily. Another job-interview in the middle of November for a lower position in Hannover.

Today - quite recovery

Feeling not so good today - trying to recover quiet today.

Today - alarm-clock ringing at 4:00 am

So my night was really short. Getting up to a hot tea was nice - thank you hubby! Getting to the central station by subway was o.k. Seeing the announcement that the train I want to take is 60 minutes late was not so nice. It was cold, most shops were still closed and I would reach Hamburg late for my course.
A bag man was hanging around the hot places in the station, too. He was a bit scarry. Well, not as much scarry as the crack-user I saw in Hamburg-central later. I reached my course just some minutes late and during the course I saw the first snow-flakes of this winter. I recognized during the trainride to Hamburg that it got colder there. Beautiful landscapes in white frost. Well, I was not expecting snow-flakes in Hamburg today.

How is it in your part of the world? Cold or hot? Humid or dry? Snow, rain or sunshine?

Impressions of Hamburg - last Saturday

Yesterday's dinner in pics

Yes, I missed to take a pic of the dessert, but that was the one I made, so please bear with me.

This is post 1111


Time for a give-away again? What do you think?
I think a real secret give-away this time.
This time the give-away will be for someone else.
How will this work?
You can tell me in the comment section to whom you would like me to send a gift and why.
I will choose one lucky winner and will choose something special to send.

Comments open until next friday 9:00 am.

Today - on cooking

Today I went to a cooking event. We cooked a five course dinner.
Now I am full in a good way.

Today is a mixed day

Today I was not in the best shape. I felt old, confused and did not much done. I will not get the job I had the interview for.  On the good side: I went shopping for sweets and drove to the outlet. I still have a lovely husband. ...and nature is just beautiful.....

Today I am not sure if  my life is what it should be.
It is for sure not what I dreamed of.
And it is for sure not what my parents want from me.
There is nothing to complain.
I am able to earn the money I need.
And there is still a lot I could be proud of.

An der Reeperbahn...

Today we are in Hamburg again. Strolling through the City took its toll. I am tired, but  had a great day. How was your day?

Freitag, 19. Oktober 2012

Everything went well...

... now all I can do is to wait.

The test went o.k. - a small excel-thingy, some multiple choice and some questions from the boss.
And a short demonstration that I can explain the benefits of knowing how much something costs (planned and real) - I decided to explain it with one of my shoes as subject how the knowledge is useful. And I got some nice laughters when I used the shoe. Although I do not know if I will get the job I can tell you that is a nice place to work. Everyone was friendly and encouraging.

And afterwards I had some sushi, yummi.

Now I will go into the city to do a bit of work for my "real" job again.

Wish you a happy Friday!

On my way...

... to the next job-interview. This time 30 minutes away from Hannover and I know I have to write a test. Otherwise I will learn in the middle of November where I will work next year. I wish my work to be with numbers and in a nice atmosphere. We will see what time will bring. Enjoy your day!


Just during my lunch break yesterday I saw these varieties of mushrooms. And it was a short walk so I was surprised to see so much different ones.

It is me..

 ... When you see someone struggle with the winebottle. Today I managed to open the bottle After 15 minutes and had one knife and a finger damaged during the procedure. The salad went fine. Not so the cheese. I did not like it and when I read the description I know why, it said not to eat the crust coz it is made out of plastic - and you know what I had just eaten? Yes, the crust.

Just in our backyard

Soup, warm soup!

Just throw some veggies in a pot and cook. Served with fresh roasted garlic bread it is a delicious lunch.
I am not such a big fan of soups, but an easy veggie soup is great when it is cold outside. Do you love soups?

Why do you think I do have nothing to do after work?
Do I not need to take care for myself?
Do I not need to buy something to eat?
Do I not need to get everything managed?
Yes, my husband does a lot.
Well, that does not mean I do not need to do anything.
I am working full time - away from home during the week.
Staying only for a short time at one place it is not easy.
It needs a lot of energy to adept.
Yes, I can understand that you want to see me, Mum.
It is just I am away during the week and I really love to have my weekend just for my husband and me (and for washing, cleaning, cooking...).
And that is seldom enough coz at the moment I am a lot in Hamburg at the weekend, too.
Not for fun - for work.
Yes, it is fun in a way to see so much.
Well, please do not forget Mum, it is hard work, too.

It is my life.

During my week I live in a beautiful landscape

During the week most of my life is about work. Since I moved I got to see some really beautiful landscape each moring and night driving. I enjoy it very much - well, driving and taking pics is not possible so I just share a shot I took during a short after-work-walk in the village the flat is.

Back home for the weekend

How nice to look forward for a weekend without much scheldued time.

Sometimes Mother Theresa is not asked...

I wanted to help an old friend of mine. Well, I hope I did not manage it to become worse. Sometimes I should close my ears to the wisper of the mother theresa inside me telling me to help and just lend an ear without helping.

Today - Autumn colours my day

Just a short lunch break - so much colour!

I just got home and recognized that I sended some birds with not enough postage on the way - I am sorry!

Hope they arrive in good shape nonetheless.


I was on my way for lunch break when I saw this little one on the sidewalk.
Think it is a bit late in time for becoming a butterfly, my friend.

Sure, it is me...

... Or why was everything dark when I reached the flat? And why did not work electricity when I was in the house? Seems that somehow the electricity went out. Landlord being on holiday. So I decided to stay at my sis at 15 degrees Celsius for the night. Coz cold but light. Landlord told me how to find the electricity cubboard, but it is dark, I am tired, no flaslight in the car...
On my Todo-List now: buying a flashlight.

At the moment I am ...

... not in the mood to blog much.

Not that there is nothing happening and I am not creative.

My word for this month: connect

That is a heavy one. Connecting is not easy for me.
We will see what this month brings.

Free to...

... clean some windows, do some laundry, cook and sew.

So much good stories...

... just look around you.

Yesterday I saw a splendid old white car. A real old one - an oldtimer. Behind the steering wheel a lovely old lady. An old lady in a red teddy-jacket in a white open car enjoying the last sunbeams of this summer.

I am back in Hannover coz tomorrow is a holiday in Germany - a day off and I am home.
