I hope you are all well and rested from the weekend. Thanks to Katie we make today a marvelous Monday!
Oh my weekend! It was – interesting. Let me explain.
I had my good friend and blog supporter over on Thursday night – he offered to cook for me cause all my blogstuff just takes a lot longer than usually planned. I didn’t complain. He made penne a la siciliana and I added some salmon. Red wine, chats – good times. Friday after a morning at the gym hitting chest/back and shoulders, I went to the hairdresser –– had a coffee date on my own – always when I happen to drink coffee (which is rare enough) – I think of my sweet blend. – then had my nails done –– and in the evening took the train to Zurich to meet up with Anne. We went to Dean and David and then enjoyed an outdoor concert at the lake of one of my favorite SWISS bands! Seriously, listen to them – they make great sound and I am proud that they are locals.
The ‘date’ with Sandro started awkward – as awkward as it is when you first talk as ‘ex’. But all of a sudden the ice broke. Yup, I started crying in the middle of the cafe we sat in and so did he. We decided to go down to the lake for a walk.
What can I say? We talked for 2 hours. It was wonderful. Cruel. Clarifying. Touching. Sweet. Heartbreaking. Good. Freeing. Sad.
We talked and walked and sat and hugged and cried. Seriously, when I once start crying it never stops. The same goes for Sandro. Crybabies.
I went back to Basel later and while sitting in the train I understood what I miss the most about our relationship – the familiarity. In the end, there might not have been a lot of fire and passion left, but I always felt at home with Sandro. Only my brother knows me as well as Sandro does. We both know each other inside and out – I can tell from his movements/look/vibrancy what’s going on inside of him. He was there in my worst moments and in the happiest. But yes – we probably were more like best friends than lovers. Still – missing this feeling of familiarity causes the feeling of loneliness.Thank God I had a plan with friends to party in the evening. I checked my outfit – which you can’t really see here, sorry 🙂 I wasn’t aware of the bad light. It’s a black skirt with a black Indigo-blouse and brown leather boots. Simple. Good thing is that you can’t see my after-cry-messed-up-make-up. I had dinner with Mom – I made lamb lettuce with smoked trout and a savory egg/mushroom mugcake.
– and then met up with Nicole, a friend to have some predrinks before we went off to the party.
It was a good night with tons of chats with people from my past and a bit of dancing. But seriously folks – some guys honestly suck at their pick up lines. I talked for a while with a guy who was really funny and charming, but some of the others….geeeeeze.
I talked to one of my male besties about it the next day and he suggested following: ‘ Did you sit on some sugar? Because you have a really sweet ass!’ – REALLY??!! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!!!!!! I slept in on Sunday morning and when I woke up, my whole body hurt. I really don’t know what’s going on but I feel like I have pain everywhere. Oh body, what’s your message? Please recover.
I had a really delicious smoothies ready – Growing Naturals Vanillla Protein Powder, PB2Chocolate, Flaxseed, 1 Apple, TVP and water. So creamy rich and tasty!! Rest of Sunday it was raining and raining and I spent the day at the office to get some paper work done. Grocery shopping, a little meal prep and then dinner…..
…not to forget dessert!
So tell me – what was the most awkward/terrible/idiotic/funny pick-up line you ever got?
Favorite smoothie combo?

Have a wonderful Monday everyone!!
