prove of life

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

I’m aware I haven’t done much here recently, but to be honest there were other things taking my interest away. On the other hand I was busy as well with work and besides Turkey, which I have written last about, work did even bring me over to South Africa recently.

To be honest … something I would never have thought about myself to be possible to happen.

Now I have to say that I very much liked this trip and even it was for work only and rather rather busy, it had some touch of heading off and flying out there to somewhere fancy and starting to discover new things there. Luckily, I was even able to make some friends there and therefore eitherway, for work or for leisure, I’m expecting myself to head there again someday.

In general my actual work (project management) is very interesting at all and as for the project does include overall EMEA, I’m looking forward seeing Russia and Poland soon. People around are even start kidding asking me whether or not I’m doing this all for pleasure saving money, I would usually spend for vacation instead.

Now I for sure confirm it is working only! And everyone saying or thinking something different is …. simply a liar! 

I just not hesitate to confess, that it has some attraction as well. It’s just sad I can’t share more about my trips though.
At least I will update you with my impressions about the new countries I’m going to see soon.

Besides that conditions over here are actual lovely and sunny and besides the usual work getting things around the house in shape again, the time over the weekend was short doing a few fun rides with Suzi again. Yeaaaaaaaah!

The long weekend

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Waaaaaaaaahhhhh…… Was that a nice and pleasant long easter weekend this year.

Sun, sun, sun and even more sun on all four days and we really enjoy it very much.

Of course there was the opening of the weekend with another long ride with Suzi on Friday. And can you imagine me looking surprised finding a real new "imagine NEW!!" track in an area I always though I could drive it blind?

A gorgeous short track bringing together two of my favorite bike routes now being combind a real dream of a biker without the need to drive between them on a bigger and crowded fast road heavily used by cars and truck.

You can now stay in the forest and all is green and calm …. that keen that we even scared a deer searching for food next to the track! Poor deer! …. Must have thought idiots are rushing by though.

Saturday then again was some more busy day again with preparing things in the garden and putting plants out of the house again where we had sheltered them during the winter month.

But then again working on saturday was balanced by some relaxed BBQ on Sunday , sitting together and chatting with friends. Finally drifting again in lots of lauging lokking old and age pictures and video clips showing us all a few years younger ….

 Today now with conditions … even forecasted different … there was no question about, me doing a second longer extended ride with Suzi again. 🙂

First Ride?

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

The week is the very first really friendly and sunny one this year. All over pleasant spring conditions and it getting constanly 1 or 2 °C warmer every day. And best news of all is, this conditions shall remain all the rest of the week and all weekend.

Yesterday I hadn’t a chance to do, but today I guess my stand for working will not really last very long and I’m already dreaming about some short working day and heading of for some ride soon.

To be honest I’m not even sure which bike I will prefer then. But does it matter?  Out in the sun … that is the aim! 😉

A Nice Weekend?!

Friday, February 27th, 2009

Speaking about a nice weekend and keeping the time of the year in your mind, you might get I’m speaking about some sun and the hopefully first spring like weekend this year. Since day all the weather forcasts do not get tired about promising us a nice, pleasant and sunny weekend and now I’m really keen to see it happens.

It’s anyway time now for the weekend to come and in finally a few hours it will have arrived. But looking back the last few days I can’t really complain. The work I have done last weekend seems to work out. and even the idea that I will have to spend a few hours on sunday helping two friends with stuff does not really change my mood.

Even the background might be "work" like, dealing with friends is always a pleasure for me. I’m just carefully thinking about how "many" people I really do call friends. 😉

At the end I still have to ensure I’m able to deal and cope with them ….LOL

So back to the weekend … A sunny one! Great!!    Hopefully this last few march weeks will pass on soon also and I will be able to move my Suzi again. She has anyway slept long enough now (lazy thingy!). But perhaps I should use the hopefully really arising sun and the weekend to give her a frist check already?!

My neighbor will like for sure …..  😐

It is a bit odd that exactly when others enjoy spring and summer most I start to suffer dealing with my hayfever.
For sure there are more worse things than that. But right now with changing conditions like actually it really starts to hassle me.

All today was  a great mix of sun and clouds with a wind going on all day and I guess that last is the really guilty part in that game.
So I ended up doubling my tablets  still running around with burning eyes
and a running nose.

Thanks god not all days are like today …. :-/
