If we were having coffee, then you would find me listening to Regina Spekor, so many of her songs have me in awe, but seen recent developments in my life, I really enjoy the song How (I am linking you to the youtube video) just listen to this beautiful lyrics…

Solveig's MugIf we were having coffee, then I would as always have no coffee to propose to you. Would you like a hot chocolate or a tea instead? And help yourself to the fruit you might like, grapes, strawberries, giant pomegranates, oranges, bananas, apples, kiwi, mango, passion fruits or pears? Yes, I guess we are fruit fanatics. I also have some good baguette left over from this morning with Schokonuss (a hazelnut spread from Germany, which is almost 50% hazelnut), a heavenly treat, or with raw butter, both are lovely treats. I also have a lot of cookies and little cakes as my mother in law send us a care parcel from the south of France, her bakery does a lot of tasty things. If you are looking for easter Chocolates, well then you’ll have to wait for tomorrow.

If we were having coffee, now that the food and drinks are all sorted out, I’d ask about your week, how have you been doing? Are you all set for the A to Z Challenge? Are you joining? You should! You know last year, I joined last minute and I me a lot of people, who in turn helped me meet a lot more. If you are generally on the lookout for events you might like these two posts that I did ages ago. One is about weekly events, and includes our beloved coffee share, the other is about events that are rarer than weekly, and include #1000speak and the A to Z Challenge. Maybe one day I’ll do a part three, I am sure that in this 2nd year of blogging, more events will appear and I will discover more.

So as we are already talking about the A to Z Challenge, I’d tell you that I have picked authenticity as my theme for this year, inspired by Gulara, who was actually my guest on Monday, with a lovely post about Novruz, a Spring festival in Azerbaijan. If you have a few minutes to spare, do please check out her guest post. And if you have even more time, why not have a look at my new page dedicated to my guests?

If we were having coffee, I’d probably tell you about work, how I had been working a bit more recently, but how things are quieting down a bit again, due to my students’ own timetables (like (last minute) vacations for the easter weekend). I really enjoy working with adults, but when they have a busy work schedule, it means that we sometimes only see one another every 2 to 3 weeks and not weekly. I have finally put up a page on my blog advertising my teaching services, but for now it is only in French, the English page will be up soonish. That does not mean that I do not accept requests for skype German lessons (or in person if you are in Paris of course).

Do you have any work related projects going on? What are your plans for Easter? Do you celebrate Easter? We’ll be doing at least one egg hunt for little one tomorrow, but seen that we are having breakfast with my dad she’ll probably get two Easter Bunny visits. Maybe once it’s the Easter Bunny and the other it’s the Easter Bells? That way at least she’ll be acquainted with the two traditions of her parents. For tomorrow I really want to write an Easter post, but of course it is not written yet… Tonight, once the young lady is asleep I will proceed to decorating with our beautiful eggs, for now all I have are the branches that I will be attaching the eggs on. I am already looking forward to the egg painting sessions I will be having in the years to come.

If we were having coffee, then I would of course love to continue with my rambles, but as this post will be over 700 words, I’ll let you go for now, after all there are all of the other coffee posts to read. It’s a weekly event hosted by Diana over at Part-Time Monster.

Enjoy your weekend!
