The world outside my window…

- isn´t it amazing how the weather seems to fit perfectly to one´s heartstrings?
Or is that my emotions influenced by the weather?
Maybe both…

My regular blog´s name is Coffee 2 go - the name came into my mind because I´m addicted to coffee.

There are several little helpers in our home supporting my love for coffee quickly, like this Espresso machine, which helped me to get my morning power for several years.

It´s pretty old and I confess I´ve tasted more enjoyable coffee than this little helper comes up with. I also enjoy Café au lait or Latte Macchiato lots and producing milk froth seems to take ages.

To make a long story short - this is a kind of “Good bye”-picture. A friend informed us today my “Jura dream machine” is ready to be ordered the upcoming Saturday! Yeah!!! Coffee Jitters!!!

Good bye, old friend!

A book reads the better which is our own, and has been so long known to us, that we know the topography of its blots, and dog’s ears, and can trace the dirt in it to having read it at tea with buttered muffins. ~ Charles Lamb, Last Essays of Elia, 1833

To me Sunday evenings are the best time to chill. A warm bath, deep conditioner, a body-peeling, face pack and all the other girly stuff… candles, a cuddly blanket, pjs and a good read… *sigh*

I feel sooooo relaaaaaxed =)

Happy Sunday ya all!

Aaaah… weekend - we took today of to visit the fleamarket in Dusseldorf, Germany. We haven´t been there for ages by reason of bad, no, horrible weather. Today has been quite warm (10°C / 50°F) - perfect “fleamarket-weather”… and perfect weather for an additional shopping trip, where we found this beautiful white orchid (which now brings some spring fever to our home ♥ )

My parents visited us today. It´s been a while since we saw each other (about 2 weeks) and I missed them badly. I was slaphappy to see them today ♥

Please let me introduce my mommy (Miss Elli) and my daddy (Papili):

The picture was taken from the upper floor. I apologize it´s a bit grainy by reason of zooming and frozen fingers. We´ve been out for a walk just minutes ago. It´s still stormy. Miss Elli´s hairdo is a subtle hint, while Papili´s hairdo doesn´t care about the weather anymore *wink*

Bonus (brought to you by pregnancy hormones, what else *grin*): We´ve had some home-made “Topfen-Strudel” with our coffee - that´s strudel filled with vanilla flavored fromage frais, plus vanilla sauce and cherry sauce. Yum…

One thing I dislike about pregnancy is that those hormones bring my sweet tooth on. I could gorge over-sweet stuff the whole day.

In other words: The doc told us we have a 75% for a baby-girl.

I tell you we have a 90% chance for another long-run diet after that little one will be born.
Until then I´ll indulge myself with Italian Tartufi, Trufas Claire de Lune and Lacasa Trufa chocolate from Spain… and the Ghirardelli squares I ordered today. Ugly, huh?

Oh, how I hate the weather capricorns in Germany. Yesterday has been a quite nice and unforessen warm day, while it´s (again) freaking cold, stromy and rainy again. I planned posting a picture of my exploding head, but it didn´t burst, yet.

However, I´ve been home the whole day, doing this and that, but I spend most of the time designing a website for a acquaintance who wanted a homepage matching to his online-shop. Normally I prefer to come up with something new instead of adapted designs (especially if the existing design is… well… let´s say… odd). That´s why I didn´t stop after my work was done. I continued to create a new template for Pimp Your Blog, the blog where I present some new handwritten xml layouts every now and then.

A whole website including coding and text + the new blog layout + the unpleasant weather = Sanni is tensed up.

The best medicine is to grab my favorite yoga DVD, the new yoga pillow I couldn´t resist to buy yesterday and… relaaaaaaaaaaaax:

Bonus: This is how Pimp Your Blog looks like right now. What do you think?

We´ve been out for some shopping fun today. One store had a specail offer: soap bubble tubes - a trip down memory lane… Oh, the lovely childhood memories…

soap bubbles

I´ve had so much fun to make soap bubbles, watch those shiny bubbles and see them *poof* burst when I was a little one. I still enjoy this procedure, but I´ve had lots more fun watching Luis discovering soap bubbles =)

YAY! Obviously I´ve been to the Linkin Park “Minutes to Midnight” Concert in the Koelnarena, Cologne, Germany today. The Meet & Great was such a blast - those guys ROCK!!!
