Five Things Friday: just five things I’m thinking about or things that made my week, or things that I otherwise feel like sharing.
Hi friends, I am back from travel. I feel like I’ve said that a lot recently. This year has definitely started out with quite a busy schedule for me, hence the infrequent and slightly disorganized posting on this blog. I hope you settle back into a more regular routine from here on out, as I don’t have any more travel – personal or work-related – on my schedule in the foreseeable future. I feel like I’ve been constantly playing catch-up lately (which is not entirely untrue). If you see some batch commenting these coming days, just know it’s me trying to get up to speed with your lives.

I noticed issues with blog posts not showing up in Feedly all of a sudden (yes, I subscribe to my own blog!) and I wonder if it had to do with my recent move to a new hosting server. It’s a far fetch as I moved my blog a couple of months ago and the RSS feed issues started happening while I was in Germany (and I didn’t make any changes to my blog during that time), but who the heck knows? You might not have noticed any issues yet (as my posting has been sparse), but if you did, there might be a fix.
TL;DR: If you’re not seeing my post in Feedly (or other RSS readers), try to update the URL to https://theinbetweenismine.com/feed/ and hopefully that will fix it for you.

The weather in Germany was lovely. On the cool side, with a couple of days of wind and rain, but mostly sunny with blue skies. I quite enjoyed it. Needless to say, I wasn’t quite ready to come back to 80+F/25+C. There was a distinct weather change in CA while I was away. It’s supposed to cool off again a little bit, but summer will be here before we know it. How is it almost May?

Getting back to my normal exercise routine has been interesting. Taking a break for two weeks and choosing activities that were different from what I usually do, was a fun change of pace, but my HR was through the roof when I got back on the Peloton earlier this week. I am sure jetlag was partially to blame, although I feel like overall it hasn’t been too bad (I haven’t been awake at odd hours and mostly slept through the nights). Does jetlag affect you much?

One thing I really missed this week was getting up and having breakfast with my parents. As cliché as it might sound, my Dad goes to the bakery every morning to get fresh rolls for breakfast and he asked me every morning what kind of rolls I wanted. There are a gazillion different kinds and I switched it up every day to get the whole variety while I was there: wheat rolls, rye rolls, multigrain rolls, seeded rolls, poppy seed rolls, sesame rolls, pumpkin seed rolls, etc.
And one of my favorites: müsli rolls. My mom bought me one at the airport before I left and I savored it for breakfast Monday morning upon my return. (Now I have to learn how to bake those myself.)
What’s been going on in your world this week?
