Sundays.

Yes, this is getting repetitive - all I ever do is post pictures of Sunday outings or so it seems.

The weather has been lovely, with some really rather warm days and while the temperatures have dropped somewhat we still have blue skies and sunshine. Very welcome after quite a few grey and rainy days. Hence the greenery is exploding and the birds are doing their thing and the first bees have been sighted, too.

Our Sundays have included a short bike ride along the river, so here are some of the pictures.

Television.

Yes, I still watch television, though not as much as I used to.

The Easter break means that I've been watching more than the weekly episode of Agents of Shield (which is more than a guilty pleasure).

Still not caught up with Justified.

But we managed to return to True Detective and we watched episode 4 last night. Which was more of a linking episode, I think, showing us how these two detectives are spiralling out of control, in their personal lives and in how far they are willing to go to solve this case. They don't seem to have a superior who is really interested in them - in contrast to Justified. Also, really want to find out how one of them managed to masquerade successfully and the other dropped out.

We are nearly done with the first season of Transparent. I've been enjoying that, because it has got humour, heart, lots of neuroses, and gorgeous architecture. I sort of have developed this theory that (interior) design reflects the characters, but I am not sure yet where they are going with it. Is there a unified theory behind it?

Oh, and we watched the Veronica Mars film, which was pretty harmless, but fun. That said, I wanted to feed the actor playing Logan Echolls. I used to like skinny guys, but not anymore.

Family visit to SmallTown on Easter Monday. So very typical in many ways. The waffles we had were really rather dark and the one that was thoroughly burnt? Not thrown out, but eaten - it's that mix of "I am suffering for you" and "I cannot throw away anything resembling food, I still remember people starving". Traumas manifest in little ways. (My family and food? There is some bad stuff there.)

The traditional walk was enjoyable, most of the time, as there was some hiding and finding of eggs, of the dyed and chocolate variety. The kid got onto us at some point that the same eggs kept turning up again.

Anyway, lots of signs of early spring and some pictures taken:

Currently I'm on Easter break, much deserved after a crazy marking phase. I spent the first couple of days of break filing teaching materia and sorting out the mess that was the dining room - which had doubled as my study.

We started the spring cleaning and we did Easter things: )

Happy Easter!

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... )

Memery.

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 [livejournal.com 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.

The pictures show a different side )

Or as we say Erdmännchen - tiny earth men.
