mind the gender pay gap - today is equal pay day in Germany. Leading naturally to publicity stunts and lots of coverage across all media. Germany has a big gender pay gap at an unadjusted 21%. I’m not entirely sure where the adjusted one lies - unadjusted does only account for the difference in hourly pay between men…
Halfway to the weekend!
Sooo... Sunday, what’s everyone cooking? Anyone meal prepping? In need of kitchen advice? Wants to give kitchen advice?
I’m in a bad mood because things are not running as smoothly at work as I would wish them to. To get rid of some of my ensuing frustration and aggression, I’m listening to old school socialist workers’ songs (Arbeiterkampflieder). And I want you to have the opportunity to participate ... please have one of my…
After a truely great Sunday in the mountains, it’s back to work for me. At least it’s still sunny? Advantage of that location: it is a bit on the remote side and therefore not overrun with people. Disadvantage: it is a bit difficult to get to. After driving through what has to be the most boring, endless stretch of…
I’m rather happy and content right now - I’ve just had my lunchbreak. The yoga room in the office building was empty so I got a quick 30 minute routine in, it’s sunny - meaning I had my sandwich and salad out in the sun and now... I’m just happy. Mind you, doesn’t mean I want to go back to work. But it feels as if I…
We have the first snow, not a lot, but a couple of inches making everything look pretty. I made stollenkonfekt, read in my book, had a fire going and cats who shun the outside world due to said snow.
I so need the weekend. I’m bone tired - hard training, poor sleep and still newish in my company is not a good mix for a relaxed start into the weekend. But. The sun will finally come out again on Saturday, I really look forward to soak in the winter rays. And I’m trying to get an appointment for a spa day with…
Autumn is here and it’s beautiful. At least for the moment - heavy rain is forcast for the coming weekend.
TW: pet death (not mine)
It feels as if we didn’t have one in a while and as I have just finished a scarf and want to brag about it... here is a place to show off whatever you are working on or have just finished. Ask craft related questions or give advice.
This is nothing but a pretty pictures feel-good post. I went hiking last Sunday, left the home at the crack of dawn to be able to get to my start point shortly after eight by public transport.
I just wanted to kick off an OT for everyone who wants to brag/whine/ask questions/have a nice discussion. I might not participate too much because I’m on my way to the lake with a bit of nice red wine to round out the day and decompress from a week of having people over to visit. Not the same people for a week, but…
I wanna brag. Brag with me. Or ask questions, help others with all food and cookery related questions.
So, first glance at the signed document:
Caveat: I just looked a bit into the current knowledge about Meroe and Naqa after listening to a podcast. Should someone have better knowledge, please correct any mistakes.
Here’s a collection of tweets from the last month in no particular order.
Spring is here and the first round of flowers has bloomed and is over. But depending on where I am, there are always new flowers springing up. I love spring! So full of promise, so pretty in all the new colors. Here are some pictures from the last few days
I’ll just leave that here.
How is your start into the week going? Here, the first tender signs of spring have been overshadowed by new winter.
