Perfumes I wore were Rose d’Arabie, Aromatics Elixir, Gucci No3, lots of Eau de Camelia Chinois, because I want to thunk my bottle. Friday was my favorite spring perfume, so I wore Covet. Saturday was Fan di Fendi Eau Fraiche and sunday L’Air de Rien. Glad I managed to get a backup bottle of this gem, because it’s discontinued.
On my plate I had a freestyle stir fry with meat and pakchoy. I made Dhal with rice and our boss let us order pizza on Wednesday. Saturday I made persian food with celery and chicken and some meatball and bellpeppers bake Hungarian style. We had a big Sunday breakfast with lots of homemade rolls and Seelen plus leftovers to freeze.
I cut a dress and the Stacker jacket as my next sewing projects, but had no time to start sewing.
I also did a little bike tour on my new Brompton bike, just 10km, because I still cannot exercise a lot after my covid infection, but it was really fun in the sunny weather.
Perfumes of this week were Roma, Pour La Belle, Empreinte, Covet and Salome for the cleaning community project on NST, as I chose the glamorous take on cleaning via a maid, but this sadly did not happen… I wore a mix of Avon Nearness plus Arpege on Saturday morning and Theo Fennel in the late afternoon. Sunday was lots of vintage Chanel No19.
On my plate I had Maultaschen in soup and later fried with eggs. I used some of last week’s spiced butter to fry some eggs. Saturday I used the last of the spiced butter for a pasta with asparagus and salmon and turmeric yogurt. This was a bit improvised, but really good… The boyfriend made Sauerbraten frankonian style with special Lebkuchen for sauces and potato dumplings. Sunday I did a bit of baking and made banana bread plus something called Quarkschnecken, pictured above.
I finally got my new car, a Skoda Fabia Combi in red. Now we can take our bikes to vacation, if we are allowed sometimes in the hopefully near future.
Amd I finally made all the buttonholes on my denim jacket and on the Gilbert top. So I now contemplate what to do next. Maybe the Stacker jacket….
Perfumes of this week were Scherrer vs Vintage Miss Dior, Ambre de Merveilles, Wazamba, Dzing!, vintage Chanel No19, Private Collection from the oldest bottle I have, which is a mini from a gift set, I got from a patient in the late 90ies. Saturday was Cristalle Eau Verte followed by Niki de Saint Phalle and sunday I wore Eau de Lancaster.
On my plate I had lentil soup on Easter Monday plus lentil salad with tuna and fermented lemons. The first ramps went into a cream sauce for linguine. I made asparagus risotto on Saturday and a huge Indian Masala chicken with roast potatoes and spices. Sunday was a big tray of homemade lasagna. I also made the pasta sheets. So we luckily have leftovers for next week to eat.
I finally got my brompton bike, that I ordered last August and biked a short round, sadly I am still not very fit, so 5km were enough for the first try.
My perfumes this week were Covet, Perles de Lalique, Chypre Siam, Doe in the snow and Aromatics Elixir. I tried Shem El Nessim, but it reminded me of Hubba Bubba chewing gum with extra neroli.
We did not much cooking, but we had homemade chicken soup with rice, egg and vinegar. I made linguine with broad beans and smoked salmon in cream sauce. The rest of the noodles were eaten with Miso butter. The last head of savoy was made with minced meat and mograbieh. Friday we had takeout in Munich from our favorite Vietnamese restaurant and Saturday my brother made fish with potatoes and fresh spinach. Sunday we had our traditional Easter breakfast with a big sweet raisin loaf, butter, smoked ham and hardboiled eggs.
After my covid infection I had an increased resting heartrate, luckily my ECG was normal, but my physician diagnosed me with long covid. So I am not allowed to do harder exercises, just taking walks and slow cycling. This is really sad, because I wanted to cycle to work again regularly.
