Yesterday it really looked like springtime when I took the children to school. The sun was coming out and I ignored the temperature sign on my car showing minus 10 degrees and drove straight to the Han river to go for a spontaneous walk. I thought I could go for 30 minutes and then head over to Yeouido to check out Paul Patisserie, a gem I knew from my time back then in Istanbul.
My walk took not 30 minutes but one hour. I am glad I did it. One words for 2012 is health and what is better than an early morning walk by the river in the sun? but of course, to minimize the health effect I went to Paul to have a croissant and a cappuccino. I have been limiting myself to 2-3 cappuccinos a week for a while now. This was a special treat: sitting in the Patisserie, having some of my books at hand (Big big Thank you to Markus ' parents for giving me a Kindle for Christmas! - it is great to have my books available in a second!).
I am currently reading "Living the savvy life" by Melissa Tosetti, "Pictures at an exhibition" by Sara Houghteling and "Wild Things: the Art of nurtutring Boys" by Stephen James. And yes, I am a parallel reader. I definitely need more than one book by my side!
And on my way home towards the mountains I have been listening to this in the car:
Life is good! Has it been good to you lately?
