Hi, yes, I am still here. Happy New Year everyone!
I have been quite a busy bee lately, and have neglected posting on the blog….I have had a few technical difficulties, but I am slowly ironing everything out!
Here are some great things that have happened in the end of November:
-I held a the most successful Thanksgiving party to date
-my year-long attempts at starting my own American bakery here in Germany are slowly coming to fruition (once things are up and running I will share more information with you guys)
-my baby (now toddler!) has learned to walk
-I am back doing organized sports – and loving it
-I got a new kitchen cabinet to store my daily-use dishes and glasses
-I got a lovely book case from France that’s about 100 years old
-I finally decided what colors to paint in the hallway and did it
-we had family over for the holidays – as well as a surprise visit from a friend we hadn’t seen in 8 years!
-my older son grew 2 shoe sizes in a week!!
-I was offered a part-time job – out of the blue!
-I learned how to knit!
-I got a sewing machine!
-I got an AWESOME new EIZO monitor for my computer
-we finally hooked up my computer for the first time in a year since we moved from our old home! Yes, I have been working on a borrowed laptop for that long! And I LOOOOVE my computer so much more now.
-and I was able to finalize plans to be on a relaxing vacation visiting family back home in the US for 6 1/2 weeks
And, here are the not so great things that have happened since last November:
-I injured myself climbing in the kitchen and have been walking around in crutches for a few weeks now..with no pain, but swelling…which has to go away before I sit in an airplane with 2 children for 12 hours! This really annoying injury has also caused me to stop doing my weekly routine of sports (about 5 to 7 hours a week) and has caused those pounds that I worked so hard to shed to come back.
Not too bad if you think of it…only 1 thing going wrong in 3 months and it’s wasn’t anything catastrophic! Heck, my new – and lovely – computer has been causing me more trouble! I haven’t been able to upload any new photos onto my Flickr account to blog for you guys – something screwy on my end. I will have to get my tech guy on it right away!
So, I hope you all bare with me for the time being. Blogging will resume as soon as my technical issues have been ironed out!
Oh, and you can find my biscuit recipe here!
