The Luxury Of Free Time

FINALLY on my week off. And I am doing billion times better. My skin seems to be on a much needed break, too. You can count on one hand when it was this good in the last 15 years. 😀 So much for being untreatable and given up on. Without in or out steroids. Am enjoying laying around, reading, sleeping, knitting, having good breakfasts, baking, meeting up with friends, going for long walks with not-so-little anymore Emma. Tomorrow I need to start writing Uni papers, but the past three days, have been very lovely indeed.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, I met up with a friend and her little dog who came to visit. We went to an absolutely tiny but amazing indish Restaurant. We had some chitchat and just enjoyed the evening. The dogs got along really well, who would have thought that of wild Emma. People stopped to watch them play. 😀 Nice.

We also went to get some Easter decoration for the living room.

Thursday, I took Emma up one of the city mountains, the Moenchsberg and then up the Richterhoehe. It was her first time and I wasnt sure how she would take the going up. Everything went well, and she had an amazing time jumping through the kneehigh snow. You can look at all the photos in full size on my FlickR stream, as always. 🙂

In the afternoon, I met up with the creator of Hautinfo. A lovely woman who talks very much. I am thinking though, that I am being used for information purposes and I dont like it. I have “earned” the information that I have about topic eczema (treatments), the hardest way there is. By going through it for years myself, trying insane meds with life threatening side effects, being on a treatment now, on which barely anyone worldwide is on . I think I will stop the information flow and see if she will still want to go for a coffee then. Most likely not.

Friday I met up with Eva. We talked for hours and in the evening we went to the monthly meeting of the astronomers, as Walter had a presentation about the first stars and the beginning of the Universe. It was really interesting, but way too complicated at times for a complete laywoman like me to understand. After all had went home, he took the time and sat down with me to answer all of my questions. Incredible how it all started and yes, we ARE all made of star-dust. Lovely thought. 😳

I caught up on Vampire Diaries, watched the first season of Breaking Bad, finished my huge turtle pillow and am almost done with a pair of warm socks for the cold days.

Today, I want to start watching Downtown Abbey and start on sewing Bunnies.

I am also reading a book I came upon by total luck. But it is so good. It is called Fear by Dirk Kurbjuweit. It is totally intriguing. Definitely one of the best books I have ever read, writing style, how the story is told and the topic itself. That is how you find good books, by pure luck.

Have a good week everyone and stay warm! ➡

    Connie, free time is not a luxury, it is a necessity!!! :-O
    It’s all about the work to life balance which I hope you are realizing can be waaaay out of bounds with you. Sure you can be tough as nails and also proud to show that off, which is entirely fine really, but I’m happy that you are finally noticing the effects of physical and mental relaxation – awesome, and well deserved/about time! ❗
    Enjoy your remaining days to the fullest… lord, the amount of snow is terrible here for a few days now, got my car stuck and whatnot, but for those pleasant long walks I’m loving it.
    Give that furry lil’ prankster my cuddles. 😀

    @Peter: Hats bei euch auch soviel geschneit? Man liest ja nur über Oö, aber es hat schon ganz schön Schnee hergehaut. 👿 Ekelhaft. Schaut ja wirklich schön aus, aber zum Arbeiten ist der Schnee nix. Zum spazieren gehen schon toll. Auto lieber stehen lassen. Wenn viel Schnee ist, bin ich mit dem Rad schneller als mit dem Auto!

    Doch doch, ich weiß schon daß meine Tage zu voll sind, es wird auch immer schwerer zum Durchziehen und Durchhalten. An meinem letzten Referat haben wir zu dritt gearbeitet, weil ich nicht mehr konnte. 😯 Aber es hilft nichts, en Abschluß muß her.

    Meine Haut fährt nach ganz eigenen Gesetzen. Die reagiert auf gar nichts, auch nicht auf Ruhe. Heilt ab wann sie will. Hält eh nicht, habe heute wieder beinah Dauergekratzt. Die versteht wahrlich kein Mensch.

    Sehnst du dich nicht auch danach, dass dich wer fragt “was geht dir im Kopf rum” und du kannst antworten “gar nichts”?! Mein Kopf ist zum Bersten voll. Das kennst du ja. Also vielleicht doch Entspannungstechniken lernen.

    Aber die beinah “nichts tun müssen” Ruhe war wirklich genial. 😛 Jetzt wieder Unizeugs erledigen, aber irgendwann ist das auch vorbei.

    Ich wünsch dir eine gute Woche! Geht eh so schnell rum.
