Art is the triumph over chaos.

Oh boy, such a long time without a blogpost again, consequence: this will get lengthy. ◦°˚\(´°౪°`)/˚°◦ Time is flying like crazy, only 6 more months until Christmas! Better start preparing presents right now, an eyeblink and it is here! (and I will be as unprepared as always!)

The last couple of weeks I did lots and lots of baking, I baked cookies, cakes, made various breakfasts, jams and and and…. All these calories show of course, I definitely need to cut down with all of the baking, here is no more home for calories, go away, run, GOOOOOOOO! Having said that…

  • Blueberry Chocolate Cake
  • Mmmmmmh, such a sin!
  • Mascarpone-Joghurt Cheesecake
  • More sins...
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Next batch, first one was gone in an eye blink.
  • Pankcakes with berry sauce
  • Rhubarb Strawberry Jam
  • Blueberry Jam

My application for Reha went into the mail about 2 weeks ago. I had to go to my GP and blablablubb, everything is getting so much more complicated! Havent heard back yet. I am a bit nervous if they will accept Israel, or rather send me to Styria again (please not!) or deny it after all. Argh. (ᗒᗨᗕ) Nerv wrecking. I need to get off the immunsuppressants. I am not supposed to go into the sun at all with them. Aehm hello? I am a mail carrier for goodness sake! Not a good combination these two.

Which brings me to the topic of my – what seems to be my regular – visits with the chef of the dermatology clinic and the pulmonologist. My skin has been really bothering me a lot. Since my GP wont give me anymore prescriptions for sleeping pills (!!! nightmare!!!), I am laying wide awake at night scratching away. Cant put too much ointement on, as skin is reacting so massivley pretty much right away. Well, chef said to be happy with how the skin is. WHAT?!?!?!?! I guess my genes are my gravestone. I am a Wildtype Atpoic Eczema case, very few of those around and there isnt too much that can stop it, to repeat what he said to the other doctor about me infront of me. So REHA cant come soon enough!!!! Pulmonologist last week was a bit better, I gained 1% of lung volume in both sides which catapults me out of the pathological 70%, YESYESYES! Of course I had hoped for more, but it could have gotten worse too, so better take what I can get.

Last week I had my much anticipated week off work. Anticipated because I bought tickets for the drei Fragezeichen live tour a year ago. Bummer that it was in Nürnberg (Germany), which meant 350 km one way, 700 both ways, lots and lots of driving. But it was so worth it! It was even better than I had hoped, unforgettable! I grew up with the tapes and books, all of my live, at all ages die drei Fragezeichen were with me in some form and then to suddenly see them live on stage was totally insane! Loved it so much! It compensated me for a lot of things! ٩(^ᴗ^)۶

  • The route to Nürnberg.
  • The tickets, most important!
  • Chiemsee, first stop.
  • Another break. Hot Chocolate to go.
  • Half way there.
  • Lala.
  • No mountains!!!!
  • Can you spot it?
  • Show announcement.
  • The stage.
  • The little car all the way in Nürnberg. 🙂
  • Tour bag
  • Tour cup
  • Tour shirt

Then of course it was the Eurovision Songcontest 2015 in Vienna! Austria did brilliantly with a whopping zero points in the end, WHAT A SHAME! Much better was this years Britains Got Talent! Absolutely fantastic!!! I am sorry for not posting any YouTubes this year, but you should most definitely check the videos in their YouTubeChannel! I especially liked Matisse the dog and the Welsh Choir was insane! So many brilliant acts this year. We ate caramalized popcorn watching both, soooo good! (and yes, so many more calories!)

Emma is doing fantastic! She is really beyond cute and bringing so much joy and dog-love. She got shaved this week, we are having the first heat-wave of the year, so this was very much needed!

I am doing lots of gardening this year. Especially concentrating on herbs. This is what I have so far and I am going to buy some more utensils to plant even more a bit later. (breakfast first ) I also got really loveley confetti-coloured-flowers for the windowsill, must take photo of it, looks really nice.

During my vacation I met up with Luise and Eugen to go to the zoo, loved it! Brilliant weather, Eugen is too cute and catching up with Luise is never bad eiter. I just love the nature into which they built the zoo, almost more than the animals itself!

  • Llama (obviously).
  • Zoo built a new ape house.
  • Love the meercats!
  • Flamingos.
  • So pretty.
  • Dinosaur relatives.
  • More (unseeable) apes.
  • More nosy Llamas.
  • Turtles.
  • Amadou with Mommy.
  • Baby Rhino
  • Zebry behinds.
  • Regular goats.
  • Piggies
  • Lovely spot it has got there.
  • *in love*
  • Pretty sure they are laughing about us.
  • Sun bath. Why not?
  • This ape seems to wander all year round.
  • Bored bears.
  • I felt really bad for them.
  • Best zoo shot ever!

Adjutement of delivery areas happed at work last week and areas are painfully bigger now, not all, but mine at least. Still doing lots and lots of swimming and am improving gradually. I am still the best woman in the USI Swimming course and at the very top all included, so good for my ego! And so very bad for my skin. The heat and my wrecked skin dont go all too well together, scratched a bit too much yesterday, it was itching beyond beastly and had to wrap my legs as a consequence… well you dont even want to know.

I am going inline skating again as well, not too hot about it, but being in the water all the time when the weather is that nice…

Always trying to stay positive and semi-happy at least. Brother is beyond anything! Oh well. I will leave you with a view down of my favourite spot in Salzburg at least one of my favourites – be well everyone, be happy and enjoy being alive! Lots of love!
