To be quite honest, I am still dealing with the (mostly) emotional jetlag that comes with my visits with family. It’s never easy to go from 60mph to literally ZERO in a matter of hours. I always find the transition from being there and “all of a sudden” being here again difficult (yaddah, yaddah, I know there is a 11-hour transatlantic flight in between). And then, BAM, 10 days have gone by and it’s like I didn’t notice.
Needless to say, I am still re-adjusting to daily life, processing, sorting through photos, trying to wrap my head around what just happened and putting that in coherent blog posts. Patience, my friends.

Related: I have yet to get back into my work-out routine. Travel always throws me off and then I was sick for a few days upon my return and yeah, let’s just say my head is ready to get out there running again, my body hasn’t been. But today it’s happening! Mark my words.

My co-workers took me out to a fun belated birthday lunch this week. They were going to take me out during my birthday week at the beginning of March already, but German that I am, I told them that there is no way that they can take me out before my actual birthday (and I was already on annual leave that day) because that’s bad luck. So they had to wait… but it was a nice “welcome back”- gesture!

I baked those overnight spelt-rye rolls last weekend, because I was missing German breakfasts already. They turned out great and were so tasty.

This weekend, I am planning to go out and buy a few plants for my vegetable garden. I know, I am almost a little late in the game, but since I do finally have a backyard now, I want to take advantage about it and try my hand at a vegetable garden again. I am planning on getting some tomato, zucchini, cucumber and strawberry plants and maybe a few herbs. What have you been planting this season?
