I love wool: A plunge into my closet in cold (and warm) weather.

Yesterday I decided to go out for an adventure in Berlin.

With temperatures the coldest all year – around -12° – and plans for a long walk around Berlin, I bundled up. Out came the long underwear (wool, even!), winter jacket, hat, gloves, and warm shoes. I went all out – my scarf trailing behind […]

A Satisfactory Saturday

After spending the Tag der Deutschen Einheit, a day off, getting stuff done—I’m happy to report that I’ve also spent my Saturday getting stuff done.

In addition to a bit of freelancing, Wednesday included mundane chores like changing the filter on my bathroom fan. Honestly, this is not a complicated chore, but it does require […]

18:00 CET: Changing laundry loads

In retrospect, today’s photo was bound to happen, sometime – I just hadn’t quite expected it to be today.

The towels are about to come out and the dirty clothes to go in.

Basically I do clothing laundry roughly twice a week, usually right after every other trip to the gym, when […]

One year, 5 days ago…

Was my first meeting with my personal trainer at the gym.

Tonight I tried on a pair of blue jeans I haven’t been able to wear in years.

The jeans fit.

A Mismash of Many Things!

I can only think of two “negative” things: First, I banged my leg into a table Tuesday evening –pretty hard—it took me 2 minutes of cursing before I could move again—and it hurt enough to noticeably bother me through Friday. It’s still […]

T-Shirt I wore yesterday…

If it’s understood by locals, it’s because they know English really well. I wouldn’t wear it out in the States.

My Random List of Thoughts

This has been a busy 7 days and I’m beat.

I’ve managed to get three projects completed in the last few days, including one major project that is, for the moment, off my table, although I have no doubts that it will come back to me at some future date, but hopefully not in a […]

LederHOTTT!

Living in Thüringen, one is not exposed to either Lederhosen or Dirndl, the image of clothing that the world has of Germany.

Emo-Lederhosen

It’s hard to tell from afar, but there are distinct cultural differences within Germany. Thüringen is famous for its bratwurst and potato dumplings; Bavaria is home to Oktoberfest and fancy dress […]

Munich Impressions

Locals ride the waves in Munich.

Difficult to find.
