Ten On The First Tuesday Of The Year. Porcupines, books and goals.

Hallo meine Lieben,

happy new year! Frohes neues Jahr! I hope all is well and you had a nice New Year's Eve and  have no hangover now.
I am linking up with the loveley Lin from Linny's Vault  and Amber from Glitter And Dirt for the first time of the new year. How exciting.


1. I won a Starbucks gift card! Thank you so much, Lin! You absolutely made my day! I rarely win anything so this was so cool!

2. This is my 211th post. Very exciting. I still haven't written the second part of my favorites of the year 2012 but I will do that at some point in January before it gets old. Also David wants to share some of his music wisdom with you guys. 

3. I am pretty sure that porcupines are the cutest animals ever. See here. I hope he does not care about the stupid hat.  If I ever live on a farm I will adopt a porcupine that needs a new home. 


4. I feel like changing the design of my blog. 

5. I still need to buy an organizer for 2013. I am always so chaotic and confused that I need something where I can write all my appointments etc. down. Or the year will be a huge mess. 

6. Sometimes I just feel like hiding from the world and not talking at all. 

7. I am finally caught up on The Mentalist and now I am sad that I have to wait until Sunday to see a new episode. I am in desperate need of some new episodes. I started to watch Bones a couple of days ago. I like it but not as much as I like The Mentalist or Castle. Tonight I finally want to watch some Criminal Minds. 

8. I started to read a couple of new books. One of them is "The keeper of lost causes" by Jussi Adler Olsen. I wanted to read that forever and now I finally started and love it so far! I just need more time to read. 


9. One of my goals for 2013 is to read more books than I read in 2012. That's not a motivation problem, just a time problem.

10. I want to wish you all a wonderful and happy 2013! I hope all your wishes will come true! Thanks for being there!

Have a great first day of the year!

  1. If you do redesign your blog, you should change it to where I get an email notification if you reply to my comment. Just sayin' :)
    I also think porcupines are adorable. I got Quinn a book called "How Do You Hug a Porcupine?" and it's in Spanish too!

  6. Happy New Year, sweet Katrin! ;D May it bring lots of happiness, love and kitty hugs into your life! :P No hangover here, but I have a case of serious indigestion :/. Anthony, one of David's friends, made a tasty risotto that was too "al dente" (i.e. almost raw, haha) and it hit me hard. I haven't even been able to move my butt downstairs to run on the treadmill ... Well, that's I say, but I have the feeling I'm using that as an excuse, hehe.

    Congrats on having won the gift certificate! Those come in handy! Is Starbucks over there the same as the American Starbucks? Do they sell the same products?

    I totally admire your love for books! For some reason, it's hard for me to get hooked on most of them :/.

    Have a wonderful week, girl! ;D

    Tight hugs!

    1. Aww, you are so sweet Miki! Love the kitty hugs!
      Oh no, raw risotto sounds pretty bad. I hope you feel better now! You should relax and don't use the treadmill!

      They don't sell all the same products in Germany. There is no pumpkin spice latte for example I think. But lots of products are the same! Love gift cards!

      I always loved books. As a child I started to collect them. Haha.

      Have a wonderful week, my dear Miki! Love and hugs!

  7. I love 10 on Tuesday with Lin too! She is too funny!

    Criminal minds is one of my favorite shows. Absolutely love it. Hope you got to see it :)

    I bought an organizer and planner late last year to help with the chaos that is life, and they help! Good luck with that!

    3. Oh my goodness, it's so cute! I wonder if they're really as prickly as they look?
    4. Go for it! A new look sometimes does wonders for you.

    1. I never touched a porcupine but I would love too!
      I just need to find some time and a good idea and then I will change the design of the blog!
      It would be awesome to have a job where you can read all day long! :)
