Blossom

Spring in Vienna apperently is early this year but I don´t mind a bit. I simply love this season when everything is in blossom and the sun is out and summer is just a few more steps away...Enjoy your Saturday wherever you are!

Egg Delivery



The issue of “greener life-style” or “environmentally friendlier” living has been dominating quite many discussions in my circle of friends in the past few years. I am not a person who is changing everything radically, but with little decisions you can make a real difference. With all these little every day decisions I am hoping to make a statement against this neo-liberalistic consumer society that is being dominated by the different forms of capitalism. Every three weeks I get my eggs delivered fresh from a farmer. I can pay him directly for his products and there is no waste because I return his boxes from the time before. And the real kicker: The taste of these eggs you cannot even compare to the taste of mass-productions eggs from the supermarket. Happy Sunday!

Saturday Mornings

There is something about Saturday mornings that I love. Saturdays are about staying in bed a bit longer, not having to rush anywhere and making pancakes.



My favourite pancake recipe:
(feeds usually around 5 hungry kids and 2-3 adults)
  • 6 dl flour
  • 5 table spoons sugar
  • 2 table spoons baking powder
  • 1/2 tea spoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
  • 4 table spoons sunflower oil
  • 3 table spoons melted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 5 dl milk
Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl and all the liquids in another. Mix both together and start frying them on medium heat in butter on the pan. Serve with whatever you feel like having.

Vienna from a different angle

A borrowed lens on the camera can do some magic to pictures. Here some shots from Vienna last week...

A Sunday Hike in Vienna

 Spring is in the air. And a perfect way to spend the Sunday afternoon was to meet up with friends at a hilltop restaurant for lunch and then walk through the woods of Vienna. I am so blessed to have people around me with whom I can just be myself and share bits and pieces of my life. I have to admit the more time I spend in Vienna, the more I love this city. I mean, look at the pictures below. That is all accessible by public transport...

A Saturday Afternoon


The winter-sun is shining right into my face while I am writing you these lines. I have been too busy last month to update anything on the blog but this afternoon I have an unexpected free afternoon with nothing on my urgent ”to-do-list” and I decided to make myself a pot of hot tea (got some Kushmi Tea as a Christmas Present which is one of the best tea´s I have ever tasted) and to degust a few Swiss Pralines which I got from my lovely relatives. In the postbox I found a Valentine´s card of an adorable friend that I have known since I can think, music is playing in the background (Erykah Badu), I have a pair of old woolly socks on and I am enjoying life as it is. The best thing though is that our house is full of life again. We have friends visiting from far away and I have once again come to the conclusion that it doesn´t matter how far apart you live to sustain a friendship. With some people you just catch up on where you stopped last time and I am so blessed to have friends like that in my life.
