It Is The Season

Christmas Season has officially started! 🙂 Pillows and alike are being sewn, we have three Christmas cookie doughs ready to go, house is being decorated and our beautiful Adventkranz is waiting to be lit.

I want to get everything done early this year, yeah right!!! because there is lots of Uni stuff that needs to be done as well. I can do it. After all what is a 40+ hours job, 15 hours at Uni when there is a life to be lived? Nothing! 😉 Christmas sewing of the week so far: 2 coasters and 2 pillows:

This all is being summed up by a complete Christmas Pillow Madness! 🙂 All of this while scratching myself stupid. This week was full with lots and lots of allergy pills, good thing we are checking kidneys and liver, lots of paper towels and tissues and God knows too many bodily fluids. Disgusting. 😡

It is also the Neopets Adventcalender Time again. Even though I have no time to play anymore, I love the Adventcalender and especially all the flash animations, brilliant! I spotted there are lots of new additions to the site. Thing I really like are the Habitarium and the Mysterious Negg Cave. 😀 Very nice.

Emma is being silly as always. Favourite shots of the week:

Work is not good. Despite my dreadful situation there, the post office is probably one of the most inhuman places in this country. They told two people on Friday that they will deliver mail at another distribution center starting Monday. 😮 I felt so sorry for them, I could have cried right along with them. One said he didnt want to, he was fired. It can be any of us next. More people being cut before the New Year is starting. The mood is bad. I am so glad I have so many other things going on, I think I would just break down along with all of the others otherwise. It is a real shame. Of course I can only wonder about the people who are still attending the annual Christmas Party. 🙄 Braindead.

I want to go the Christkindl Markt again this week. To pick up spirit and of course to get more turtles for our Christmas tree. If you cant tell, I am trying very hard to get my mind off of that dreadful emotional dependency, which a massive pain, still. Working on it. I have never accomplished so much though! Keeping myself horribly busy, gets lots and lots of things done. 🙂 It is also a very good way to shed of unusable weight.

Cookie baking going on:

As I am watching Harry Potter Movie 1, here is a quote that is always fitting for any situation, cant be quoted often enough:

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

Just spotted this quote in my random quote script at the bottom: oh yes, so true

Einen Anfang kann es oefter als einmal geben, und immer wieder anders. Man konnte sich auch nur einbilden, neu anzufangen, obwohl man denselben alten Stiefel weitermachte.

Take care of yourselves, always and all ways! ➡

    GREAT HP quote! I look fwd to Neopets Advent Calendar every year too! Started my Christmas shopping yesterday…so there’s no stopping me now…Every year I promise myself to finish early!

    Sorry about the P.O. How rotten?! And during the holidays to be so inhumane. 🙁

    Happy, happy, happy BAKING! (When will the Internet provide *smell-o-rama* so we can all enjoy!?)

    I deleted my NP accounts some weeks ago – I was nearly crying but I had to stop for good.

    I have 2 gifts (Mom and Sis) and need 2 more (for the boy – which hubby has to look for – it’s not even clear what it will be – and the one for beloved hubby which I am totally clueless of…)

    Oh and only to mention it:
    We buy the dough (Mailänderli) in the shop and eat it without baking *yummy*

    @Anu: Das hab ich gelesen dass du dein Account angeboten hast… SEHR TAPFER! *streichel* Ich freu mich sehr fuer dich, fuer all das was du dieses Jahr erreicht hast liebe Nuschi! SUPER! Auch das sollte mal gesagt werden. 🙂

    @Lucy: I think the book is a bit easier once you have seen the movie. There are 5 plolines in the book, and plotline 4 and 5 are way to futuristic. I think the book itself is awesome in structure. The author has put a lot of effort into making the book realistic, as in old speech – old orthography and so on. Especially how builds a bridge from one plotline to the other ven though they are so far apart time-wise. Having said that, I have an awful time following it. But most people enjoy it a lot! I would say, give it a go. 🙂

    @Connie: Thanks Connie…I think I will! I love to have my mind challenged like that. Movie had 6 stories to follow…so the book should help me figure out what I saw! ;-D
