Here goes a random collection of life lately! I’m in a weird in between state – I´m fully aware that we are not on vacation anymore haha but I still don´t really know what day it is lol.
The minute we got back from our vacation I was in full organizing and cleaning mode. And for some reason Albrecht had the same urge so we ended up reorganizing our office/guest bedroom. Got rid of a few things, moved a few things around and its so much better!! We have very little space in this room (or in general if you will haha) so I feel like its very important to use the space we have wisely but also in a way that it wont feel cluttered. I´m feel like we achieved that we this room!
I have exams coming up in March and since studying with headaches is a struggle I started this week. If I´m being honest studying is for me the hardest part in life right now. There is nothing that lets me more brutally and direct see what ability I´ve lost through the headaches. Before I LOVED studying. I just loved the challenge of finding out how good I be at a subject and it was a challenge and had nothing to do with my innerself. Now- not anymore! I´m doing my best though to find peace in it all. If I truly felt like it was the way to go then I could stop at any given moment but for right now I chose to walk this path. Hope fuels me that it will eventually bring me to a place in life where I am truly content. I try to choose hope and trust in the unknown instead of anxiety and fighting.
While studying I realized we needed better lighting. We do have daylight coming in but its partly blocked from the roof above our balcony and I found the best thing haha Albrecht is making fun of me already for switching out all out light bulbs lol.
Its probably old news and I´m just way behind but I found these awesome DueClick light bulbs. I wanted a really bright almost day light light for our office which is cool white and while looking for that at the local store I found a light bulb that can do warm white and cool white! How awesome is that??!!! Here is the deal: for some reason I´m not really into a smart home. I like a little good old fashion light switch and lock and I sure do like the security of knowing things will still work even though our internet connection is down etc.. so when I saw these I looked right pasted them because I thought for sure those needed to be hooked to something else only to find out you need absolutely nothing but this light bulb. You put it in and I can use my good old fashion light switch and through that I can decided what kind of light I want. GENIUS!! I use the warm white/cool white in our office. Its perfect for studying but also having a warmer light on evenings when you want a nice atmosphere in the room. And we also have the dim version which we use in the kitchen. You know you are an adult when those things make your week haha
More on the healthier side: I cooked such a yummy soup this week!!! It was so easy but for some reason so good. I just through in a bunch of vegetables, cooked them for an hours and salted it really well. So yummy!
And last but not least: I got a home trainer thing for my bike this week! One of my new year goals is to find a place to exercise and since we really try to minize our expenses right now I decided this was a good alternative to a gym membership.
Its actually a really good mixture of being able to completely zone out and just sit on the bike without needed to think where to go to etc. but still be outside. I like it so far! At some point I want to add some weights to our little little home gym.
That has been life lately!!
I hope you will have a good weekend!
Lots of love
