Friday, last Friday of the month. It is also a clear and beautiful day. It's going to be blue skies and sunshine today. Always love that.
The first month of the year has already gone by. Usually that is the month that I find the hardest to get through. It always seems so long and slow to me. December with it's festivities is like a weekend and then comes January that appears like that ever so hard Monday morning to get up to and get started on. That little bit of travel making the winter seasonable shorter and just so much bearable. But this year for the first time January has felt normal almost.
There are so many cute neighborhoods here in Basel. Many small cute and cozy houses. Discovered that the Forsythia is starting to bloom here as well. I have no idea if this is a different kind but it sure looks beautiful. Makes my hear flutter with spring feelings.
I am off to yoga class now. I have decided I should try and do a little yoga or pilates on regular basis. It always makes me feel great afterwards so it is something I should try and squeeze in. There are many different kinds of yoga and I guess it is important to find something that works out for you and appeals to you. They have this Power Yoga here that incorporates strength training. Makes me feel both strong and flexible as I leave the class.
Also I decided on trying out another of couple of new things and routines for this year. My new semester of German class has certainly stepped up when it comes to complexity and being demanding. I am therefore not taking German classes here in Basel this semester. I am devoting my full time and concentration to the online class German at Hogskolan of Dalarna.
Another thing that I hope to pick up on is getting out and meeting more people again. Building up and investing in my social network. Last part of last year I became lazy and chose the hanging on the couch instead of getting out and getting busy. Networking is both fun and important. As I work and study from home and won't attend German class here in town it feels even more important to get out there and not sit cooped up inside too much.
Today is my sister in laws birthday so Mia I hope you have a great birthday. All the best birthday wishes to you from us in Basel.
Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend. What are you up to?
