It's Monday... ^___^

Starting Monday like I always do: by sorting the stuff on my desk and setting up a To-Do List.

Especially the sorting is important. It always gets me in the correct frame of mind. And this weekend my daughter spent time at my desk - so that means I get to remove all the little bits and scraps left over from her present packing spree. >.< I even found the box of X-mas cards stacked on my bed last night. She hadn't bothered to put it away. *grmpf*

My water fountain is finally up and running. I'm sorry that I don't have a digital camera right now - I would so love to show you. Because it's a really pretty little fountain... *sigh*

Ah... I found a picture of it here (beware - large picture!). Now, the picture shows the fountain without all the electrical stuff. So you have to imagine a black power cable leading down from the glass bowl and going to a control unit. They just photoshopped it away in the picture. >.> And of course I don't have a bottle of prosecco standing next to it. ;)

I also got responses on the 'personals' add that I had posted in our local newspaper! I'll have to go through them now and answer the gentlemen. I'm not sure whether there's anything useful there... *snicker* but it's good practice. I've been together with the same man for 20 years now - I'm sorely out of flirting practice. ^^

The part that I don't like about Mondays is the 'paying invoices' part... >.< But since I know that insurance payments are going to be due in January, I want the currently open invoices taken care of, before those other payments are due. I always prefer to *get* money, rather than have to shell it out. ^^

It looks like my still-husband might be moving out by the beginning of February. He's found a place (a friend of his is renting out a small appartment in her house), but it still has to be renovated, before he can move in. If everything works out the way I want it to, that will be in February. Then I have to have his room re-done (fresh paint, carpet cleaned etc.) and a small 'kitchen'-type area put in, where I can wash my hands and store my equipment, and by March I *should* be able to open my holistic practice again - part-time. We'll see.

But at least now it's looking like the future might actually be happening. :)

I hope your week starts as bright and beautiful as mine. :)

That fountain is very pretty! I'll bet it looks even nicer in person.

Good luck on the personal front. I hope you meet some very nice gentlemen. It's time you get to enjoy that part of your life again. ^____^

I like the fountain. It just has a low hum that gets on my nerves after a while - but that's ok. I just turn it off for a bit, and back on when my ears are rested. ;)

Well, we'll see if there's still anyone interested in an old lady like me. ;););)

Updates? Na ja, mal schauen. Ich suche gerade ein Photo von mir, das nicht aussieht, als wenn ich 150 Jahre alt wäre... ;)

Du hast Recht, schon wieder fast Mittag! Und ich hab noch eine lange Liste. Muss auch noch zur Post... *rödel*

Hier ist es etwas diesig, fast ein wenig bedeckt, aber mit so einem Aprikotton, der alles weich winterlich macht. :) Viel Schnee.

Gerne geschehen. :)

Welches findest Du am Besten?:


Ich hab so viele Falten... ;__;

Wir haben genügend Schnee - kann Dir gerne was abgeben. :)

Und danke, Dir auch!

Das zweite? Ok. :)

Ja, das meisten was ich habe sind wirklich Lachfalten. Ich bin halt nicht mehr *ganz* taufrisch. ;) Und die eine oder andere Sorgenfalte ist auch dabei. ^^

Also, wenn ich den Schnee in eine Kühltüte packe und dann per Express schicke, meinst Du, der kommt gut an? ;)

Na ja... Wie gesagt, nicht mehr ganz taufrisch... ;__; Und wenn Du Dir in den Bekanntschaftsanzeigen mal durchliest, was die Männer sich da so vorstellen... da glaubt man schon langsam, dass man mit 47 kaum noch Chancen hat.

Sei froh, dass es in München im Moment nicht schneit. Da bricht dann gleich wieder das Chaos aus, wenn's soweit ist. ;)

Ich habe mir gerade von meiner Diät was gemacht. Das sind echt leckere Rezepte und so hin und wieder suche ich mir da einfach was raus und mache das zwischendrin. *lecker*

Pretty pretty fountain. Sounds like things are looking pretty good for you. Good luck with the flirting!
Dec. 16th, 2008 06:49 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Well, I'm certainly looking into the future a lot more confident than just a few weeks ago. :)

That's a pretty fountain... does it circulate the water or bubble it, or what? *tries to peek over rim of bowl*
Good luck on the February thing... I'll keep my fingers crossed that all goes smoothly and on schedule. *hugs*

No peeking - it's not a bird-bath! ;)

Actually, it turns the water into mist. There's a layer of fine mist on the top of the water, which drifts around the bowl. It's good as an air moisturizer, since with all the heating we're doing at the moment, the air's pretty dry and makes me cough a lot.

Well, we'll see what happens. Walter's over at his friend's house this evening to hear whether there's been any developments. Lawyer stuff is going to take longer - just got a mail from him telling me that the legal expenses insurance company won't be able to make a decision until the beginning of January, whether they'll cover the cost of the court battle. *sigh*

But I'll just keep thinking positive. ^^

*sits in the fountain and ruffles feathers* But it makes a FINE bird bath! ^o^
I have my fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly. *hugs on you*
Dec. 17th, 2008 08:33 am (UTC)
pftah... pftah... pftah...

Now I have to fish bird feathers out of the air!



We'll see. I haven't talked to him yet this morning (yeah, breakfast without husband!), because he's taken the car to the inspection.

When I've got news, I'll let you know. ^^
