I spent January 1, 2012 in bed. I’m not sick (thankfully) or hungover (amazingly), I am just lucky enough to have a lovely wonderful hubby that opted to allow me to laze around all day while he handled details. I was greeted by a champagne brunch and enjoyed having nothing more important to decide than which TV movie I would watch – totally spoiled! Yeah, tomorrow is back to reality; however, it gave me enough time to think over the last month of 2011.
Wow, what a whirlwind of new activities! School, dinners, birthdays, Christmas shopping, applying for my Führerschein (driver’s license), visiting the Kristkindlmarkts, farewells to friends heading home for the holidays, my first Christmas Day celebrations in Austria, and preparing for and hosting a New Year’s party are not specifically new; however, Austrians definitely do it their own way! Join me as I muse over December 2011.
