It somewhat a tradition to sit down on my birthday and take a snapshot and evaluating at the moment feelings, thoughts and all things in between. And it is also a great way to look back and see how I started into another year around the sun. So even though it’s late when this goes online I won’t skip.
Enjoy or feel free to skip.
… a migraine creeping up. Not ideal. But I will get a pill and ignore it today. Other then that I feel I am starting to calm down, finally having the feeling of getting a grip on life again.
… to the husband for my mood swings lately. He’s gotten the worst of me and my restlessness and discontentment and unhappiness. Not fair.
… the new terrace. It’s not overlooking the water but it’s right at the trees. Lots of birds. Actually I do like the new apartment – even the ugly kitchen is bearable.
.I don’t like:
… that the new apartment is so far from everything. I would have loved it a bit closer to the city, the shops, the doctors…
… I am blessed with people in my life that love me, care about me, think of me. My heart is full.
… my new neighborhood – sorry for not having a more interesting answer.
… new jeans. Just coming home I realized my butt pocket broke and my phone almost fell out. I hate buying jeans. The worst.
.I’m annoyed by:
… stupid questions. I know it comes across condescending but it is the truth.
… to be a nicer human.
… birds. Lawn mowers, distant ferries, hammering, wind rustling the tree leaves. Voices. But overall birds.
… art. Still working on my #100dayproject. Also want to make some home remedies such as a cough sirup and some xmas liquor that needs stewing two years.
… strawberry cake for breakfast. Other than that lots of blueberries.
… mainly water. But tonight I am mixing drinks. Moscow mule (love it) but also trying a new alcohol free drink with tonic water and some sort of vermouth. I may share the recipe. Edit: in the end we all had the non-alcoholic drink and loved it.
… thyme from the balcony. Quotes from books. Memories with my loved ones.
… the locust trees that are surrounding us. When I took my bike earlier this week the air was so heavy with its smell.
… my grandparents. I’ve been thinking about them a bit more lately.
… the fight I recently had in my family. Also the way I express myself at times.
… ed this day.
… the possibility to enjoy art and museums without and entry fee. Berlin has regular Sundays that are free and today was one. I should use it more often. So good.
… in the good, the magic, the husband.
… of loosing weight and feeling fitter.
… for common sense in world politics, more empathy and humility in mankind.
… find a great gift for the husbands birthday.
… books by Curtis Sittenfeld. Next book club meeting is not a book but and author and I have t read any of hers. So catching up. Two down two more to go until end of the month.
… poetry. Letters. Blog posts? To-do and shopping lists for the new apartment.
… life. Friendships. And sometimes myself.
… myself time to relaxe. Lately I have been getting back into napping and it’s great. I know they say if you have issues sleeping at night you shouldn’t nap. But I rather nap during the day instead of not sleeping at all.
… things too personal more often than I like.
… my bouquet of flowers and realizing the feverfew in it is dying already.
… to find connection in the new neighborhood by actively meeting people. It’s a tough thing to do but I am committed in trying.
… a dress today. Not happening often but felt my blue dress with white polka dots and red-orange nail polish is the perfect today.
… having to attach the book shelves for the third time within the past two years. It is a pain in the a** as in total I need to drill 48 wholes…
… for better sleep. It’s been hard lately, slowing getting better but nothing solid in longterm. So my wish better rest at night.
And just like that another year in the books. If you enjoyed this post you may also like a look in my previous birthday wrap ups 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022. I’ll read last year now.
Now let me know one thing you wish for, that annoys you or that you recently explored. Is any of my answer the same as yours? Do you sometimes sit down to take a snapshot of your moment in life?
