Thursday 31.12.2009 Day 365

Champagne and children bubbly

Raclette

The last day of the year was very rainy!

I was awakened by the a neighbour´s shutter at 6:30 am.

So I got up and went buying sauces for our raclette in the evening. As I got home my three guys had the first quarrel of the day.

Later the boys played a little bit with their Wii,were watching tv and playing Uno with me.

In the late afternoon we started our raclette. Especially the boys had much fun with it - it was their first raclette. But I think it isn´t the right thing for them because they haven´t the right calmness for such a little longer meal.

They had to go to bed to their normal time and we woke them up at 11:30 pm.



Wednesday 30.12.2009 Day 343


I brought the children to their grandparents in the morning - Know that my younger son will made Maultaschen (pasta squares/swabian pockets) together with his grandfather. Handmade!!!!

So today was my day of holiday - yeah!!

Drinking a cup of café latte and enjoying breakfast calmly!

Used the day for tidying up my sleeping room and sorting documents. It was a cold, wet and rainy day.

We made lunch in our favorite Italian restaurant and I had mussels in wine sauce.

Swan

I took no picture today so I´ll share one from our walk on Saturday.

In a way it was a really sad day for me. Whilst we did our last grocery shoppings for New Year´s eve ... I met a colleague of mine who is having bowel cancer. We all know that his prognosis is really bad and that he´s beyond all treatments. I´m fond of him and it was always a pleasure for me to work with him together.

To see him now, sick, cachectic, with grey hair and a thin voice, buying lucky charms for New Year´s eve... it bring tears to my eyes.




Tuesday 29.12.2009 Day 363

Christmas mail from KayJay

I totally forgot to post one of the first christmas mails I got. I´m so awfully sorry Kerri and hope you may forgive me. As I found it in my letter box I was so thrilled. Thanks a lot for this beautiful card. Think we both had funny times chatting together the last months. You are dear to my heart and it was wonderful to met you and your sweet boys personally. Hope we can continue and keep up our friendship.

The day started with rain.

Today we bought a "new" and bigger car. So we were busy with visiting the car dealership and the insurance. We can collect it at the 4th of January.

Whilst I was in the insurance my husband went to the hairdresser with our younger son. During that it began to snow.

I also was in the office and had a talk with my boss. Starting in January I´ll no longer work only two days a week but working again from Monday to Friday.

So I´ll have a lot less time for blogging, scrapping, CT´s, chatting and drinking café latte. But I´ll get more money and with that more independence. I´ll hope that was a good decision.





Monday 28.12.2009 Day 362

Shop

One of my younger son´s favorite "games" during the christmas time.

School is out until the 6th of January. But thanks God the holidays of Christmas are over and the grocery stores are open again.

After our grocery shopping we enjoyed hot chocolate and café latte in a small cafe.

Today was a rainy day again.






Sunday 27.12.2009 Day 361

Playing together

We played a lot during the christmas holidays. Monopoly, Uno and Wii. Most of the time we had fun together as long as one of my three special boys went wild.

KayJay hat gesagt…

hihi, mich und Familie hier zu sehen war eine schöne Überraschung! Auch ich finde es toll, daß wir uns kennengelernt haben, und freue mich auf weitere tolle Chats, besuche, etc. im Neuen Jahr. Ich mache heute übrigens absichtlich Goober nicht an, denn wir kriegen ja heute abend zum Raclette besuch, und ich hab noch nichts fertig (sprich Bügelwäsche, Aufräumerei, und Deko...)oops, aber ich wollte hier noch wenigstens ein Frohes Neues wünschen, und siehe da! Du hast gebloggt!
Ich wünsche euch für heute abend e einen guten Appetit und Rutscht gut rein!
Bis 2010!
Hugs
Kerri

Oh selbstgemachte Maultaschen. Lecker... die würd ich auch gerne essen.

tolle Bilder hast du in den letzen Tagen eingestellt.

Super, dass du solange durchgehalten hast.

Nun warte ich noch auf das letzte Bild.

Ich wünsche dir und deiner Familie für 2010 alles Gute, Glück und Gesundheit.

sara hat gesagt…

sounds like a good holiday!

I hope we will see a picture of the Maultaschen!!!

btw, I love mussels too!!!

My kids start back to school on Jan 4, my youngest son's birthday.

Praying for you as you go back to work full time, that is a big adjustment.

Happy New Year, my friend!!!

Sandra hat gesagt…

hmmm, legga... selbstgemachte maultaschen! mein Respekt!

Bin eigentlich hier um Dir einen guten Rutsch in ein hoffentlich tolles neues Jahr zu wünschen!

Sujomi hat gesagt…

I really enjoy reading about your daily "adventures" - I like reading and seeing your day to day activities. You always make them very interesting to read about.

I hope you continue in 2010, even with your expanded work week! Best of everything to you and your family in 2010!

Kerstin hat gesagt…

Hallo liebes Flöckchen,

die Diagnose von deinem Kollegen ist ja furchtbar - ich weiß genau, wovon ich spreche. Es muß ein sehr schwerer Gang für dich gewesen sein.

Bezgl. deiner Arbeitszeiten hast Du sicher die richtige Entscheidung für Dich getroffen. Ein wenig mehr Geld in der Tasche können wir denke ich alle gebrauchen und es schafft dir auch ein wenig mehr Selbständigkeit. Ich wünsche Dir auf alle Fälle einen guten Start in 2010.

Und jetzt komm gut rüber mit deiner Familie ins neue Jahr und ich wünsche dir für`s neue Jahrzehnt nur das allerbeste.

Fühle dich mal ganz lieb gedrückt und viele liebe Grüße,

Kerstin

Mari hat gesagt…

The swan shot is lovely! I think the kitchen play area looks like fun.
Good for you for getting more hours. Having the extra income will be nice, but it does make you busy. I work full time so I know how it it.
See you when you have time!
Happy New Year!

Tracy hat gesagt…

Happy New Year My Friend!! I wish that 2010 holds everything your heart dreams of. I am so sorry to hear about your friend, cancer is such and angry disease, I have lost both my parents to forms of it. I will pray for your friend. The Swan photo is beautiful so tranquil. What a fabulous Christmas Card from Kerri, great photo! My daughter would love your sons shop, it is wonderful! We also play a lot of board and card games with our children, my husband plays on the Playstation with them but it isn't my cup of tea :)

The shot of the swan is beautiful. I have really enjoyed visiting your 365 project. Your shots are very inspiring.

Happy New Year!

kirstiegai hat gesagt…

Angelika,
It's been wonderful seeing your photos throughout the year. I love the shop you have set up for your kids and our family also loves board games.

I wish you good luck with returning to work full time.

kirstiegai hat gesagt…

Happy New Year to you :)

Susan hat gesagt…

Happy New Year. It has been a joy to read about you and your family this year and see all of your photos. Thank you for sharing. I am so sorry to hear about your friend with cancer. Such a devastating disease. I wish you the best with your expanded hours. I will continue in 2010 and hope to see more of your family.

Fabella hat gesagt…

Das mit Deinem Kollegen tut mir wirklich leid, ich kann gut verstehen, wie hart das sein muß - für ihn und für Dich :(

Oh ich denke, Deine Job-Entscheidung war der erste richtige Schritt! Klasse find ich das!

Sicher wirst Du weniger Zeit haben, aber glaub mir, es geht auch so, dann muss man halt ein wenig zurückstecken. Ich bin sicher, Du schaffst das!

Willst Du das 365er denn fortführen? Oder ist es für Dich jetzt beendet?

Laß Dich lieb Knuddeln, ich wünsche Dir ein "HAPPY NEW YEAR"!

Jennifer (Jennilyn) hat gesagt…

So sorry to hear about your friend! :( That's awesome you got a Christmas card from Kerri!

Oceanphoenix hat gesagt…

Liebe Angelika,

fürs Neue Jahr wünsch ich dir und deinen Lieben alles erdenklich Gute!

Ja ..manche Dinge sind einfach unfaßbar und unglaublich traurig .. Alles Gute und viel Kraft für deinen Kollegen.

Da wird es uns wohl ähnlich gehen - auch ich werde deutlich weniger Zeit nebenher haben dieses Jahr, durch die anstehende Mehrarbeit. Schauen wir mal ..und dass wir den Kontakt dennoch nicht verlieren ;)

ich werd's einfach "kürzer machen" ..weiter bloggen, aber kürzer.

Maultaschen ..hmmm ..gibts auch vegetarisch ;)

Ganz liebe Grüsse an dich,
Ocean

Sheri hat gesagt…

Congrats on finishing Project 365 for 2009!!

I can't thank you enough for visiting my blog over this past year and leaving such wonderful comments. I know I haven't been as gracious with leaving as many comments.

I wish you all the best for 2010.

I see you're taking on the project again. I think I will take a break and do it again another time. But I still plan to take lots of pictures and blog about it and of course scrapbook them! I hope you'll visit again soon!

Take care, Sheri
