    March’s Ten Minute *Winks* and Giveaway

    March has been a month where I did surprisingly very little reading in favor of updating my European bucket list! 1.  I think looking up actual dates and considering different ways of traveling, creates an excitement. Possibly a way to escape-in much the way reading a book is an adventure for both the mind and the soul!  Or maybe in the way it romances us, creating an internal build up of anticipation of an experience much like the way we look forward to an interesting date.  Until we board that plane or step in to that home away from home, we have so much to envision and discuss.  There is really…

    February’s Ten Minute *Winks* with an Irritated Zombie ;)

    The telephone rang. I picked it up and listened to a cheerful woman tell me that I was depressed.  There was a good chance I was gaining weight.  I would need to revisit the lab to make sure.  Oh and could I cut back on the coffee? That was a week ago.  I laughed it off.  I’ve been gaining a steady 5 pounds per year.  Which I’m pretty sure I can chalk up to the sugar in my coffee and the bad pastry habit I’m struggling with.  I get that we are living in a season without sunlight to nourish our souls but it can’t be that bad, can it?  People live here and…

    Overcoming My Writer’s Block

    A couple of months ago I was ready to bring some new ideas to my blog.  Suddenly my blog wanted to me know something important.  First I had to succumb to the delusion of a local zombie flu.  My blog haunted my dreams while I lay sick in bed.  Lingering on the verge of death I finally decided to crawl my way to what makes for a sick bay in Wiesbaden.  Armed with antibiotics and seasonal allergy meds I made a speedy recovery. There was only one problem.  I was unable to write. Well, Okay. Maybe what my writer’s block needed was a little getaway.  So without much ado we…

    What does this symbol mean?

    Symbols used & Why: The unicorn represents innocence, purity, and healing. The dragon to show the defender & the protector. The phoenix to show that no matter the trial we will rise again. Each symbol was placed in the Sam Saeg-ui Taegeuk. A Korean Yin Yang symbol that represents heaven, earth, and humanity. The Unicorn is positioned in Heaven’s section (normally blue I decided to go with Orange to represent new ideas & freedom from limitations. It is also the color of hope during difficult times by giving us permission to move on. In other words it rejuvenates & inspires adventurers to seek their goals. Plus Brian thinks it looks…

    December Wrapups and Winkie Loot

    Hello Winkies, Looking over the December posts it seems I failed to put together a Festivus post for you this year. Know that we celebrated our festivities over the course of two weeks. We made 5 dozen cookies, eggnog pumpkin pie, and pumpkin spice playdoh.  We attended a Human Light Ceremony with friends.  We decorated sugar trees and graham cracker houses.  We also took a trip with our local homeschool friends to the Frankfurt Experiminta Science Center. We even made it out the opening show of The Force Awakens.  Which is crazy because we tend to avoid the crowds! The best part? Neko was sweet *ahem* I mean super cool and treated…
