Slowly thinks calm down a bit in Juliland. Monday afternoon my colleagues, my boss and I were all pretty gobsmacked. We felt shot by friendly fire but no one could localize the source of the attack. Yesterday my colleagues and I spend all morning discussing and analyzing all possibilities but unfortunately all we can do now is wait. I am personally pretty confident that we all interpreted too much in an administrative issue that will resolve itself next week. Let’s see and keep your fingers crossed for me. I am after all pretty accustomed to having a job 😛
The best thing about yesterday morning? Of course my mother-in-laws homemade Christmas Stollen. I love love love it and I really think that it tastes better every year! Curious for the recipe? Here you go!
Look what I found in my Advent Calendar yesterday!!! I absolutely have the best husband ever. I enjoyed this one in the morning whilst discussing laws and politics and the intransparency of the German University system. I love my discussions light in the morning 😛
We had some salad leftovers which I topped with some guacamole leftovers and so a pretty good lunch was born. I also had a banana.
Another snack provided by my Advent Calendar: my favorite Raw Bite! Apple Strudel I am so predictable but I am happy for this. Because I get such great things in my Advent Calendar.
My workday was depressing and I was glad when I could call it a day shortly after 4pm. I went to Crossfit and after a really sweaty workout (including over 60 Burpees) I felt happy again. I am absolutely sure that nothing could have sorted me out better than this workout with a bunch of great people!
Dinner remained unpictured! When I came home both Stefan and I had a huge craving for french fries and we happily gave in. I also had half of a Döner (which becomes a staple slowly but certain). No shame here.
As a dessert my mother-in-law gave us some homemade christmas cookies. Including some lemon hearts <3 My favorites!!!! Care for the recipe? Here you go!
After all this I felt a lot better and now I think I can’t change anything of the situation right now. So I just wait and cross my fingers. And if I really end up unemployed in January then at least I’ll have time for my dissertation, my workouts and myself. Period!
As always many thanks to Jenn for hosting the food fun!
Hope you all have a nice Wednesday. And it’s only Three more weeks to go until Christmas 😀
