last days of 2009

our cat


zucchini apple carrot cake

breakfast drinks

spinach strudel
We got a cat (inspired by Oly)!
I baked a Zucchini Apple and Carrot Cake and made the first smoothie with the new blender.

In 2009, Stephan and I moved into a new flat. I graduated from university. I quit two jobs and decided to become a teacher. I've been to Stockholm, Umeå, New York, Munich, Cologne and The Netherlands. I spent a few silent days in the countryside. I took lots of pictures and read some good books. Michael and Marlene moved to Canada, Veronika moved to Vienna and my brother came back after studying in Germany for five years. Birgit and Richard came by in April. I made new friends and met people I haven't seen for a long time. I participated in a big running event. I got my own piano and my first hiking shoes. I was sick too often and moaned a little bit too much. I went to great restaurants, cooked and baked delicious food and enjoyed good coffee, tea and wine. I did lots of crossword puzzles, listened to good music and bought some beautiful art work.

I wish you all the best for 2010. Thank you so much for coming by and your wonderful comments!

Oh das klingt nach einem wunderbaren Jahr viele Orte hast du besucht...Dein Zucchini-Apfel-Karotten-Kuchen schaut so lecker aus...ich werde mich morgen an einem Rote-Bete-Schokoladenkuchen wagen. Gemüse im Kuchen ist einfach so lecker und macht es so schön saftig : )
Einen guten Start in das neue Jahr wünsche ich dir
