Snow, ice and muffins

Beautiful white snow, sometimes ice outside. In my oven in my kitchen muffins are baking to be eaten soon. Have a beautiful weekend!

Driving north sunday was wise. Sunday night it snowed and snowed. Tuesday (yesterday) the snow was so much they declared a shool-holiday for the area. Well, not for us working folk. I still drive the short ways. Good for me I could use the train for longer distance yesterday and will use it today.

To vote or not to vote

Today I had the possibility to vote. Lower Saxony had voting day for the goverment. I believe it is better to vote than not to vote and so I went to vote.

Later today I will have to drive back north.
Snow means that it will take possible longer than usual. Well, the landscape is beautiful in white. It is such a calm feeling when everything is white outside.

How much such little things can give you a hard time to get to sleep. Well, today morning I had nearly forgotten everything about the pain. Could not resist to pull the plaster off. The stitches look good.

Was sleepy today. Just managed to get us some rolls, make lunch and bake some muffins and cookies.
Finished the book I was reading today. Not an easy, but a good one: The sense of an ending by Julian Barnes (well, to tell the truth I read the German translation "Vom Ende einer Geschichte" of the book). And I reread  pieces of a book written by Henning Mankell I had read years ago.

Today I slept long, had a nice cup of tea and started to wait. I had ordered a big freezer to come between 8:00 am and 1:00 pm. Well, it finally came around 11:30 am. Enough time for me to get some sushi on my way to my doc appointment. Delicious sushi - not so nice doc appointment. My doc told me I needed three moles cut out and it would hurt. And it did hurt to get the anastetic in. The cutting was o.k.. On my way home I bought some fabric. One of my loved shops is just some meters away. And I was just near it - hey how could I not look if I find something?


Yesterday I drove to Gifhorn. It took me over 1 1/2 hours to drive there. Getting most of the delay during the last meters. I had a job-interview there so I wanted to be in time. No way - five minutes late coz I went to the wrong building first (there I asked to phone the room and tell them I am a bit late, but the person I asked told me that would not be necessary). In the second building the staff was more helpful and told me that I will have mastered the first step when I have found the room - right, staircase, right, small staircase, left. It took some time. I did the interview. It was o.k., but I believe I will not fit in there.

I enjoyed the beautiful scenery and walked a bit around and took pics afterwards. It was so nice to stroll around during daylight. Most days I work during the daylight hours in these dark months.

First day

Today is the first day I feel human again. I had some virus that managed to get me down. Have you ever slept 23 hours for several days around the clock? No thought about food? Just sleep, sleep, sleep...
When I looked in the mirror I saw an ugly ghost - red eyes, winkled like an old sock,...could not be me?

After a long nap I feel much better today. Hubby cooked lunch and woke me for it. Later I did some painting. Not everything went as planned, but I am happy with some results. How was your day?

Today was not such a good one. Tired, first day of menstruation, a headache, you name it... When I got home after a 1 1/2 hour drive all I wanted was to get into my bed. Taking the post in with me I saw I got a big letter - my exams from December. They were due to arrive mid January. How was my score? Enough? Curious I decided to open the letter before going to bed.

Yeah, I got 87 points from 100! I finished it.

Now I can start the next big step - when everything goes like planned - in March.
