Random Thursday. What I'm looking forward to in spring...

Hallo meine Lieben,

welcome to another Random Thursday with LinEm and me! We're so happy that you are a part of it. I hope you are all enjoying your week! Almost weekend! yay!
And happy National Farm Animals Day!!
Each year in America an estimated 10 billion farm animals are killed for food. An unfathomable 99 percent of these animals are forced to spend their entire lives confined to factory farms. It is time to change this. 







Spring is definitely one of my favorite seasons, right after fall. It has been pretty nice here over the last couple of days. Sunshine, warmer weather, lots of flowers and everything is colorful. And here are the things I am especially excited for. 


Not freezing to death.


Well, I always have cold feet and freeze when others don't but I guess it is not as bad as in winter. There is a picture of one of my friend's birthday party and everybody wears t-shirts and summer clothes and I wear a scarf. That pretty much says it all I guess. It is definitely nice to not have to freeze as much as usual. 


The smell after a spring rain shower.


Can't really describe the smell but I guess you know what I mean - kind of fresh, grassy, clean and pure I would say. Definitely a good one. 


Fruits and veggies. 


I love fresh fruits and veggies, preferably directly from the garden. So spring is definitely a good time for me. I mean, Spargelzeit (asparagus time) starts in April! When I was a kid we had a huge garden with all kinds of veggies and fruits, it really was like paradise. I just had to go outside and got everything I wanted. I hope I can have that again some day. 


Books - just because.


Books are always something to look forward to. No matter if spring, summer, fall or winter. So I have to mention them all year round. 


Hearing the birds sing.



I love to wake up and hear the birds sing. It is the perfect way to start a day. Makes you happy immediately. 


Wearing ballerinas again.

I think I mentioned these before.

Don't get me wrong, I love my boots. But after months and months of wearing nothing but boots it is nice to be able to wear something else again. Still might wear boots in the evening. Because...you know....cold feet. 


What are you looking forward to in spring?

  1. Again, I love these shoes :) and I also love the moment when I can finally ditch closed shoes and put on some ballerinas or sandals.
    I'm sure it's not nice to be always freezing. My hands and shoes are always cold (frozen in winter) but I'm quite used to it and it doesn't really affect me. However, I will freeze if I don't have a scarf with me and my neck is cold.
    Have a nice Thursday! LG

    1. The shoes really are so cute. :) I want them in both colors. Haha. It is so nice to be able to wear some other shoes and not just boots!
      How did you get used to having cold hands and feet? :) I am sure I never will! But I know what you mean, I always need a scarf as well. Even in spring. :)
      Have a great day!

    1. Peas are awesome. I think I like all kinds of veggies, except of onions. Spring smells so good. It makes it a lot easier to get some energy in the morning!

  4. The fresh fruit is my favorite things...blueberries and strawberries, yum!

    I also love being woken up by daylight and not walking to work in the dark...longer days :)

    1. Haha, I agree, the bird really looks like that. :) So cute!

      I never had mutter-paneer I think. Maybe I can try to make it with vegan cheese! Love anything with peas!

      So cool we have the same shoe size! :)

      Have a great weekend!

    1. Yeah, I really hate having cold feet! That is why I always need warm socks and a hot water bottle when it is cold. Nice to be able to survive without them!

  9. not freezing to death haha... you are looking forward to nice things for the season.. I don't really know what to expect for spring.. books are always a great idea of course.. veggies I eat all the time, 'cause I'm a vegan so that's on board all year long... but I don't know.. maybe this season I'm looking forward to losing weight!, my parents visiting!, to be kissed by a wonderful guy that can sweep me off my feet; watching Orange is the new black second season...we'll see :) xoxo

    1. I think it is the best thing about spring that it is not so cold anymore. I am always cold which can be kind of annoying! So winter is usually hard for me. :) Yeah, I guess as vegans we always make sure to eat our veggies. :) I think I will never understand how people cannot like them. :) You have some great things to look forward to! I don't know where you want to lose weight though. :) But I am also very excited for the next Orange is the New Black season! That show is so good! Hugs!
