People who know me in real life (or follow me on Instagram), probably know I have a weakness for bananas, which are for most people unspectacular fruits. Because I love to have sweet breakfast, it happens very often, that I mix my daily oats with a mashed banana or add banana slices on top. Bananas give some sweetness without adding refined sugar, what means I feel less guilty 🙂 But whenever I don’t care about calories or sugar in the morning, I love to grab a slice of sweet bread or muffin and have it with a big mug with steaming coffee for breakfast. Seriously, who would have thought it, that my favorites are those, which contain bananas (but we all know, we should rather call those baked goods banana cake) 😉
First of all: I wish you all a happy new year! I hope you enjoyed your holidays with your lovely ones and now you are recovering from good food, drinks and new year’s celebration. It is really loveliest time of the year for me, because during the christmas time and beetween christmas and new year’s eve i can take a more relaxed view on things in my life. But when it is all over, it always feels like a hangover, a mental hangover. I am a little bit tired, think with some melancholy about the last year and what to expect in next year. Actually, i am not one for making new year’s resolutions, because i think you don’t need a new year to change something if you really want to and most of the new year’s resolutions will be break latest after one month anyway 😀
“Santa Claus is coming to town…”. Only a few days remain until Christmas Eve, so i think it is okay to have this song stuck on my head. Ever since I can remember, christmas time was always my favourite time of the year. I know this sounds like a phrase somehow, but I really love how everything around me turns calm and the christmas lighting of almost every window lights up the city. The only missing thing for a perfect christmas season is snow. Unfortunatly I am living in a city, where it rarely snows. Ironically, we have a really high rainfall, but we hardly ever get snow. In fact, it is just to warm for snow at the moment, that we can only hope and dream of white christmas here in North Gemany.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Okay, this is nothing new for most of you. But seriously, I will never have a problem to eat one apple a day at least. Fortunately you can buy apples all the year, but in autumn you get the best ones here in Germany. I think, this is one reason, why I love autumn so much. Another reason is the changing of colours, leaves turn red and yellow and the light becomes so warm and cozy. I wish I could enjoy that beautiful side of autumn from september until november. Unfortunatly I live in a city with a really high level rainfall (even in summer!) and everything is just grey in grey at the moment.
