First day of Spring

March 24, 2019

This week has been a bit strange, my energy levels have been quite low. Had two really bad nights of sleep, right when it was full moon and I wonder if it’s true or not that it affects our sleep (google didn’t help me get wiser). That croissant and coffee took up the energy again, so delicious. These pictures are from the day after Johan’s birthday. They are a bit too many to edit right now, I will do it next week, if you want to see what we were up to?

No doubt, Spring is here now. Looking forward to spending it on my balcony, need to get myself a comfy place to put my ass when reading in the evenings. That’s what I plan to do a lot of as soon as the evenings get warmer.

How was your weekend?

Did you read anything good lately to recommend? I have about 70 unread books and right now it feels like I have nothing to read (sounds like that classic wardrobe problem), much because I finished a book by a former Swedish SS soldier during WW2, which was so brutal that it’s hard to dig into another book.

Enjoy the rest of your Sundays, see you next week!

    Oh dear, feeling groggy isn’t nice…. Hope it’s better today?
    Mixed weekend here, lots of reading, too.
    Your last book sounds like it would keep me awake! Important reading though.
    Have a colourful week.
    By the way. You have inspired me to bring more colour into my life by the way, not sure where to start yet?!

      Much better now, phew! Thanks for asking.
      And yes, very important reading, it’s so hard to imagine what has been going on in this city, the book made some things very vivid and touched me so much.
      Yay to the colour lust!

    I know many many people, myself included, who can’t sleep at the full moon.
    We’re still working on piles of slush and Ice on Lake Superior, here in northern Wisconsin. You make Berlin look so exciting!

      Hope it melts away soon!
      Same here, so many friends have problems sleeping at the full moon. Would be interesting to know more.
