The weekend is over far too soon again and it has been a beautiful one.
I did a lot of running, yoga and meditations and spend as much time outdoors as possible.
Especially on Sunday the weather was gorgeous:
The sun came out to play
and so did we...
The dogs seemingly had some serious sniffing business to sort out....
Later on they seriously even swapped holes to check whether the other one did a proper job ;-)
My mum, my sister and myself.
Today I drove all the way down to a place in the middle of the country.
It is called Bielefeld.
And it is beautiful.
To get an idea of the place I went out for a run, since I needed to get rid of my energy after the 4,5 hour drive anyhow.
Back in the hotel room I need to turn on some music.
I always feel that music is most comforting when away from home alone.
Good reason to play some of my favorite tunes.
Yesterday my running pal M has told me about their fasting traditions. Every year each family member would chose something they would stay away from for 7 weeks; they are free to chose, what it would be.
And I found that this is a great idea.
I mean, I never did fasting before and I thought it is a brilliant idea to join in and stay away from everything sweet for 7 weeks.
Puhhh. Long time.
But I thought it should be a real challenge, so mere abstinence of TV watching would not work for me since I hardly watch any.
Alcohol also not, since I hardly drink any.
I don't smoke, I don't eat any meat.
So, I could go vegan for 7 weeks, or go sweetless - and the latter definitely is the harder choice.
My family is also participating:
My little sister is joining me in going without sweets.
My dad is going without meat (and he is a real meat lover), my mum is joining him, plus she is going without wheat.
Is anyone of you fasting? Did you ever do that before?
What are your experiences?
What is your 'without' for the next 7 weeks?
And now I will make myself a little bit less alone and go and find a nice bar where they serve me some olives and crackers and a lil glass of vino to comfort me, ha ha.
Have a great (Carnival) week!
(who really is absolutely ZERO into Carnival!)
