Winter Is Here, Hooray!

Long weekends are totally brilliant!

Considering the standard of excitement that I am used to, this week was rather exciting-less. We had another lovely afternoon at my cousins on Sunday, they showed me how to cook Leberknoedel and alike. They are convinced that I am going to find a good husband if I would just be cooking almost as good as they are. Impossible. They are excellent cooks! We also got Brataepfel, which were as good as they looked!

The week started with me trying to get back my Latin Books which I had forgotten the Friday before at Uni. Unfortunately, the Hausmeister didnt pick them up nor did someone bring them to Lost and Found. I will go there again possibly tomorrow to ask again if someone handed them in, but I doubt it. 60 Euros gone. So mad at myself!

The little Bunnies turned two weeks old last Saturday and three weeks yesterday. So big already!

Uni is stressful as hell with 2 presentations coming up. Skin is having multiple heydays, of course.

Emma is doing excellent and keeping us busy. I hate to have so little time for her though. I feel that if I had more time, she would be so much better trained and could do at least one or two tricks. Sigh. Two of my favourite shots from this week:

She is a puppy, what can I say. 🙂 There are lots and lots of new photos of her here.

I read another book of Barbara Wood this past week: Soul Flame. I love how well Wood researches. If you pick up a book by her, you can be certain that you always learn something new. Nice.

On Austrias National Day we went to the theater to watch the play Butterbrot. I think I prefer plays, where the actors and the play as in words carry the performance rather than having the most exciting costumes and set design. This play was carried by the actors in a most brilliant way. Loved it.

Yesterday, we changed the scenery a bit and went to the cinema to watch a 3d movie, after a book by Daniel Kehlmann: Measuring the World. Whereas the book was absolutely excellent, the movie was OK. But then, it is not easy living up to a great novel ever.

We got so much snow over night. Photos of that next week. This week I am leaving you with beautiful autumn, which I prefer to winter every single second! Be well!

    Hope you find your latin books (too bad Emma’s not a bloodhound)…I’m trapped in my house by hurricane winds…I could use a Brataepfel right now! ;-D
