I hope you all had a wonderful start into the new year and you are enjoying your weekend. Sorry that I did not have much time for blogging lately but hopefully I will find some more time soon. I can't wait to tell you guys all about David's trip to Germany and our adventures there.
He finally made it back home after 38,5 hours of traveling. Unbelievable. I felt so bad for him. I think they cancelled 3 of his flights and the others ones were all delayed. I admire his ability to stay calm in such situations. I know how terrible he felt after so many hours of traveling and no sleep.
Please check out my friend Celeste's Five Things as well.
1. A monk seal adoption.
David knows me so well: he adopted a monk seal family for me as a Christmas present. I can't even tell you how excited I was. That was one of the best presents ever. The donation helps to protect imperiled animals and preserve their vital habitats which I think is a very important thing to do. You can do the same at the homepage of Defenders Of Wildlife. There are many different animals you can choose from and they all need our help. I love "my" monk seal and named him Rupert. Can you believe that there are only 1300-1400 Hawaiian monk seals left in the wild? They definitely need help and protection!
2. This cookbook.
Another Christmas present! I got so many books, I could not believe it! By the way, thanks again to all you lovely people who send me Christmas wishes and cards, presents and all your love. I love all of you! You guys absolutely rock my world! Well, this book weighs a ton and David had to bring it in his suitcase. Thanks for that! You rock so much! It is full of delicious recipes and I can't wait to try them all. The first one I chose is the Smoky Incan Stew with quinoa and sweet potatoes. But trust me, all the recipes sound and look mouth-watering. One of my plans for 2014 is to try more recipes. I need more variety in my diet.
3. This ad.
Seriously, before I came to America I did not even hear about de-clawing. I could have never imagined that people actually do it. Just to protect their furniture and crap like that. But I had to learn the truth and it really really shocked me. It should be a crime to de-claw your cats and vets who actually practice this should lose their license. It is animal abuse. Period.
4. This movie.
David and I went to see this movie in Luxembourg because not many German movie theaters show movies in their original English version (at least not in small Saarland) which makes me really sad because I really can't watch dubbed movies or shows anymore. It just sounds so wrong. I loved this movie so much, it is beautiful and inspiring and makes you feel good. I especially love the traveling aspect of the movie. Yay Iceland!
5. A vegan cleanse.
Have any of you ever tried a cleanse or know something about it? It would be interesting to see how it makes me feel so I am thinking about trying one. I usually eat pretty healthy except of all the Christmas candy but I guess it would be an interesting experience and can't hurt.
Have a happy Sunday!
