Congratulations to my boyfriend...
...and all his friends!
This afternoon, with three more games still left to play in the season, Bayern-München became German national champions.
I'm so proud of my guys!
Cooler than the other side of the pillow.
...and all his friends!
Well let me just close any loose ends to finish off the week.
1. Deutchland - Die Prinzen
Today my MIL went to the Wobau with the written complaint signed by us and Frau 4th Floor. I had to stay home to wait for the DVD player we bought her for Mother's Day to be delivered (God love Amazon.de - if they would only deliver groceries!) and to wait for my new flooring for the kitchen to be delivered. Actually she'd have gone anyway, regardless of my delivery schedule. I make her do all my dirty work like that - talking to the Wobau, taking paperwork to the health insurance company, etc. I hope she stays able bodied and alive forever because I don't even know where some of these offices are located.
I dread even getting into this but since it seems to be the next biggest thing (somehow that grammar looks shakey) in my life right now next to the kitchen renovation and putting off its telling will only make it longer I may as well get started.
Couldn't resist this one...not if it's about books!
Can't seem to go more than a few days without a meme but that's okay. I find them amusing.
I guess getting my ass into gear begins tomorrow - because as we all know, a good procrastinator would never get her ass in gear today.
Remember that moss stitch scarf I was working on a few weeks ago? Kept looking at it and thinking that while the moss stitch looks fabu, it still lacked something.
...then we must be shufflin'!
I'm exhausted today. Stayed up too late last night and had to get up early this morning to get to a gynocologist appointment. My gyn can't be happy unless she's poking and prodding me twice a year.
...'cause I know y'all just can't wait to learn more useless trivia about The Peach.
Cheerfully ripped off from my buddy, Zoe's, blog. Couldn't have been better timing because I have had such a quiet, uneventful day that I was gonna have to skip a day here.
Aside from the freak eye, today has been pretty good. I was able to get tickets to a Blackmore'sNight show.
We'll just start off the weeks with the bits and pieces of things going on around here.
Pretty good day 'round these parts.
I've decided to move my Sunday Shuffle to Fridays and be in line with the rest of the blogging world. Not because I couldn't stand to be out of synch with the rest of y'all but rather it's because I'm trying to do more offline weekends. I was a-skeered that y'all would be trembling and fainting if you didn't have my shuffle to dig on so I'm going to make the sacrifice and make the big switch.
I've had a few folks ask me in the last couple days what a moss stitch is and how to do it. It's also called a seed stitch by some but it's the same thing.
So in our last episode I filled y'all in on how I'm a master procrastinator (sounds slightly lewd, doesn't it?) and how indulging my talent was going to cost me this morning as I would end up running around clearing things for Window Washer Dude.
Procrastination is rearing its ugly head around here today. I know I shouldn't do it. I know that tomorrow when I try to tackle the tasks I've put off until then I'll be sorry but I can't help it. I must procrastinate. It's my talent. It's my gift. It's my calling in life. Why do today what I can push off until tomorrow?
So as it ended up Bayern won 3 to 2. Yay. They won. Note my lack of enthusiasm.
Swiped from http://www.welfarequeen.org - a blog most worthy of checking out. Ranks quite high on the cool and groovy scale.
It's Tuesday and the return Bayern-München vs. Chelsea game is on TV. I am trying to remain calm and serene while this game is on and so to distract myself from turning into a edge-of-my-seat nail biter I'll just occupy my mind with the little random thoughts that flit in and out of my head.
I think I'm going to need an intervention. It seems that I've become a computer game playing nerd. I'm afraid that if something isn't done soon that my apartment will never be clean again and we'll be reduced to a diet of Doritos and Chinese delivery.
Time for the Sunday Shuffle. Yeah, yeah - I know the rest of the blogging world shuffles on Friday but, while I am normally a color-within-the-lines sort of gal, I'm also a I'll-do-it-when-I-damn-well-want-to sort of gal.
I don't have a thing to say. My mind feels so empty and numb and nothing that flits across my mind is enough to assemble into a coherent thought.
A woman who has taught me volumes about dignity, integrity, faith, strength, courage and hope has passed on. I take comfort that she now rests in the arms of her Lord. And my heart is broken for those of us she leaves behind, especially her children.
Lottie, my sock monkey, is on her way to the U.S. To the grand mid-west, actually.
I can breathe now.
Will my heart be able to take it? Can I get through the second half of the Chelsea-Bayern München match without seizing up and expiring?

Just when I think that people are getting over the idea that Mississippians are boneheads I read an article like this.
I just ate an entire bag of baby carrots. Bet there were twenty-five baby carrots in the bag.
A couple months ago I was discussing with friends the phenomena of seeing an item you don't want over and over and then when you want that item, you can't find one anywhere. I was considering this little quirk of fate when I was trying to find an apple slicer. You know those circular cutting devices that looks like a wagon wheel and when you shove it down over an apple it slices and cores it at the same time? I'd seen them hundreds and hundreds of time and had no interest in them because I am not really much of an apple eater. Then when I began to eat apples on a daily basis in an effort to get more fruit into my diet and wanted an apple slicer I couldn't find one of those SOBs if my life depended on it.
Thank God and all his blessed angels. I must be holding my mouth right because we've had actual sunny, clear, bluest-sky-I've-ever-seen weather for the past couple days. We hit April and hit the weather jackpot. Sure it's still a bit nippy outside - we're in Germany, after all, and so our springs tend to spring quite late but in the sunshine it's glorious. Can walk around with an unbuttoned jacket sort of glorious. This could not arrive at a better time. I was so sick to death of cloudy, cold, windy, miserable weather that I could have just buried myself under the blankets and never peeked out again.
Since I seem this week to be into stealing fun stuff from other folks' blogs, I'll lift this next little gem from my buddy, Poppy . I credit Poppy with my stealing...I mean I'm inspired to emulate lots of things from her such as keeping up with my blog, knitting and this new feature, the Sunday Shuffle - 'cept she does her's on Friday. I think Poppy would think it's okay that I'm stealing...ahem...becoming inspired from her. She and I look somewhat alike, like identical cousins but not quite up to Patty Duke standards. Go check out her blog too. She's most groovy and witty.
Oh I was the picture of industry today. Up and dressed and off grocery shopping before breakfast. Kitchen scrubbed. Floors vacuumed and mopped. Laundry done. Dusting finished. By golly I'm just June Cleaver today. Nice feeling of accomplishment though.
Winding up the work week here. Funny how I still think of weekdays as being a work week for me even though I do the same sorts of things regardless of the day of the week.
