J and I love to create words, especially when they represent a mix of German and English.”Mit-ness”  is one of those word… “mit” means “with, together with” in German and Jon coined the phrase “mitness” when my parents were here this summer. He sent me a text message one day saying ” mitness is very nötig [= necessary]”. I loved it :)

Now we use this phrase in our everyday language, along with some other phrases that we created over the years. It’s rather unique :) 

But what I wanted to say is, we’ll have a lot of “Mit-ness” this week :)

Our weekend was good. I came home Thursday night and was happy to be able to put my cold and wet feet under a warm blanket.
I was strangely mistaken that the summer would last a day or two longer in Southern California. Friday and Saturday morning it was pretty much pouring.
J didn’t mind, in fact, he loved it :)

We just ran our usual errands and then snuggled up on the couch, watched DVD and I baked Zucchini Bread on Friday night. My co-worker was so nice as to share the recipe with me after she had brought in a loaf last week for everyone in the office to enjoy. It was delicious, so I had to try it myself. You can find the recipe in the “Recipes” section.

Sunday we took a walk on the beach – because it was sunny again – before the Shuttle Bus picked me us up at 7 p.m.. Yes, you can believe your eyes… I said “us“, because J came up to Sacramento with me :) and you know what that means… we’ll go out for Sushi again this week!

  1. YES! One step closer to moving all the up again… ;-) You two have a great week together!! Love you

  2. haha those words are fun, aren’t they. michael and i have that,too. some words, for some reason he always says em in german.
