October news

Hi and welcome back to my blog!

I'm so glad no one pressures me into posting something here twice a week or whatever! I think of my blog more like a newsletter ("Rundbrief"), to let my friends and family know what we've been up to.

So, end of September/beginning of October always brings us the largest motorsport event in our area. The Transchaco Rally is a car race that takes 3 days and brings the pilots over 1000 km through the worst roads our country has to offer. IT'S GREAT! I've always loved watching, but for 9 years now, my husbands cousin and neighbor has paticipated in this event, which makes it even more interesting for us. Here some of my photos:

I've also spent time on Pinterest looking for the perfect Christmas card idea. I usually start to make cards way too late, or I just buy them and send them in the mail 1 week before Christmas. Well, I found a cute idea and have already started to make them. I love Pinterest! Here are some ideas I picked up there. (I didn't post the one I'll be making:)

The next thing on my list to tell you is HUGE!

I received a job offer!

I haven't had a job (away from home) in almost 18 years. Because we don't live in town and because I was always home with the kids, I didn't really want or have to. Now, my brother-in-law, who is also the boss of the office I used to work for, asked me if I would like to work on Saturdays. I have to drive into town at noon on Saturdays anyways to pick up our girls from the dorm, so it works out pretty good. I'm very excited to start again, and also wondering if I'll do the job good enough. I'd really appreciate you keeping me in your thoughts and prayers:) And if you hear a new voice on the phone at the Vet's office, it might be me!

Have a great new week, my friends!


  1. I love the button tree card!

    Hope the job offer turns out the way you hope it will!

  2. You´ll do great! You´re a natural. :)
    I don´t work Saturday´s, so maybe I´ll surprise you one day.

  3. Congrats on the new job! It sounds like it works out great with your schedule! You're gonna be fantastic!

    Yes, I really like the button card too.

    Hugs and blessings,


  4. Praying for you Brenda, you will be fantastic!
