Technically, there is no such season as pre-spring - there is winter and there is spring, but certainly while it was gloves-hats-and-scarves cold, there was this feeling that nature was gathering strength from the sunshine for the coming spring.

So we went and had a stereotypical family holiday in a holiday park over the Carnival mini-break. We had a cute little house with a freestanding fireplace and two tiny bedrooms. Read more... )

I am only following the instructions:

Ask me for a letter and I'll give you one. Then you can fill out these questions on your own blog.

I was given the letter S by [ profile] frenchani - let's see how challenging this is going to be.

More snow.

Yesterday we got snow. Quite a lot of it, but because it was not cold enough it became soggy and slushy and mushy really quickly. We did go for a walk, but it wasn't the nicest experience. There is too much dogshit around these parts here anyway and mixed up with snowy slush it is difficult to look out for and avoid.

Or as we say Erdmännchen - tiny earth men.

As I don't have cats *sigh* the next best thing to take pictures of is baby animals.

On Sunday's trip to the park/zoo there were also tiny little goats.

The Christmas holidays had been filled with marking, more marking, exam prep and we didn't manage to do anything fun, because on top of it K had a nasty cold that put him out of commission for about a week.

Then the first weekend after the break was more marking and more exam prep.

Last weekend, finally, I reserved most of Sunday - there was still some marking to be done on Saturday and Sunday night - for some much-needed family time.

That word in the subject line can't be the correct adjective, but I am keeping it as it is.

My students make up words all the time (knowledgement, degrandable, crowfunding, detaily) so I want some of the neologicalizing goodness.

Under the cut, you will find pictures from our New Year's Day Walk which was a particularly short one this year because one of us was still suffering from a really nasty cold - which manifested on Christmas Eve which is that person's birthday, too. So, not a happy holiday for him.

So we went on a really really short round in the neighbourhood.
