April Reflections and May Intentions

Grace 2021 time for those resolution green leavery

Maybe today isn’t the best day to write my April reflections and May intentions after having a crappy day yesterday. But then, what if it is the perfect day? What if, picking yourself up and starting out again is actually the biggest achievement we can do. Not only at the beginning of the month but daily.

As alway here is a quote that hit close to the heart in April.


Corona Diaries – Month 13

So here we are. Already four weeks into the second year of the pandemic. This is crazy. Back in March 2020 I knew it will not be over in a few weeks. And compared to others around me I knew that no vacation should be booked anytime soon. However I have to admit I thought we are handling things better by now. While I do not want to have the responsibility of any of our politicians and am usually supportive in their general role of running a country I am admitting I having some doubt as why we are not further along in certain things. As I have already concluded in my master thesis many moons ago – in times of crises too many opinions are not helpful. For documentation reason and because maybe in five or ten years times this is all funny or we feel heroic having survived the pandemic, let’s keep the corona diaries going. Here is to month 13.


Currently in April

Wednesday night and I have just finished dinner at a reasonable time (9pm) and there is no onset of fatigue knocking me out right away. I am still alert enough to type up a blogpost about the currently in April prompts that Anne has suggested.

New furniture. We decided to swap out the living room furniture with new one. It used to be a dark ikea wood and we are done looking at it. It all looks a bit dated and we are more into whites, more light and just an overall more friendly look. So when all this 20 packages arrived we took three nights to assemble. Mr. ♡ still has a lot of re-wiring to do for all the technical equipment, new speaker system set up and all but we are getting there and I can not remember why we ever had a black-brown lowbord to begin with.


March Reflections and April Intentions

Grace 2021 time for those resolution green leavery

Time flies when you are having fun. It also flies when you are busy with work and not much else happens. Spring is around the corner and sun rays are hitting the face. It looks like life is blooming again. Hope is emerging. But we are still in the deepest deep of a pandemic. At least here in Germany. But we are making the most of what’s possible and the March reflections and April intentions are a good way to keep focus. At least for me. And maybe you want to join in. Feel free.

But before I dive into a new list here is a quote that resonated with me this past month.


Happy Easter – Traditional Braided Easter Bread

Who would have thought last year that we are still in lockdown mode and that another Easter will be celebrated in the smallest circle possible – Mr. ♡ and I. Well it is what it is. So I will continue with my own little traditions. For many many years I have been making a braided easter bread for breakfast on Easter Sunday. Hot steaming fresh from the oven. It is one of the things I am looking forward to all year. Of course this braided yeast bread could be done any time but for me it is an Easter Bread.
