new beginnings

i love hyacinths. the sweet smell makes me happy. and right now this smell fills the air in our house. oh, and i love the color too. only problem is i never managed to save the bulbs and get them to bloom again. if you have any tricks, you are so very welcome to share.

and since so many of you asked: yes, i really liked egg nog. loved it, actually. i don't have much to compare with, since this is the only one i tried, but i thought it was a bit in the category of baileys. or white russians. i like both, so that's good. anyway, i am happy i am not living in a country where egg nog is served every other day throughout december. because then i'd probably have a glass every other day.

the new year, and with that a new decade, is fast approaching. and i lost my - relatively - new job. investors pulled from the part i was involved in. it bugs me a bit that the comfort and calm that had just settled is now being interrupted. it felt good. and now i need to figure out what to do. i have worked a lot with hi tech and internet, pr and marketing. but right now i don't feel like it. i feel like new beginnings, but cannot put my finger on what exactly. and feelings don't pay the bills.

on the other hand, this means the new year could be a new beginning, whether it's a new job or a new career. a blank page to be filled, full of possibilities. or at least that's what i am trying to tell myself right now. this could be good.


  1. I am seeing so many new beginnings, fresh starts, and clean slates this coming year. I'm not usually that way.

    Also, you've reminded me that I have bulbs that I've been saving and this would be a great time of year to plant them in a pot for flowers right before spring. Thank you for that bit of inspiration.

  2. Hurray for new beginnings! They are always good in my opinion. Good luck in your decision making, its scary but exciting at the same time :)

  3. I love the new beginnings too, but usually they come for me with lot of stress. You seem pretty serene: love your way of thinking and rationalizing.
    Sending your way thoughts!
    And as we say in Marseille: "bon bout d'an" . We never wish "happy new year" before new year: superstition, so we wish a happy ending of the year:)

  4. I'm sorry about your job. I hope you'll be able to focus on your feeling, and pursue it. It'll be good, Trinsch!

  5. It is sad when a door closes, but with all of your talent I'm sure there is a door ready to be opened. I truly believe!! I think it is life's way of giving you a little nudge. I look forward to reading the soon to be "filled" blank pages. Hugs to you my friend! xo...

    PS I like hyacinths too.

  6. I am sorry about the job, but how exciting to begin and start anew... on the threshold, waiting to happen... it will be good, I feel it :)

    Happy New Year, Happy 2010!... xo, j.

  7. yes, new beginnings! i like new beginnings and hyacints too. and my whole life is about feelings. i wish you serenity, humor and braveness. a blanke page is good and it will be good. send you sunlight, snowflakes, superheropower and a big hug. happy new year dear trinsch*

  8. oh, that's a tough one! ending a job when it's your own choice is one thing, but having someone else make the decision for you (especially when you enjoy what you are doing) is entirely another! you have a healthy and positive perspective on the situation and i'm sure that will help you to find a great beginning to your next phase.

    thanks for sharing so much of your life and wonderful thoughts with all of us here. i wish you the best for 2010!

  9. Sorry to hear about your job - one door closes, another opens.
    Happy 2010 to you & your family!!

  10. Yes, i hope 2010 will be a new beginning...for all of us !!! I wish you the best for you and your lovely family. Bises

  11. thank you dear trinsch!

    all the best to you and your family!
    this is a true adventure,
    and we shall enjoy it!
    love and peace
    from north :)

  12. i´m sorry you lost your job. but i´m sure that just as that door closed, another will open soon. here´s to new beginnings! warm wishes friend.

  13. I'm excited for this new year for you... I'm praying that it will be filled with something you can't wait to get up each morning for (and not just those cute little guys of yours!)! Keep us posted! It's going to be good, I just know it!

  14. hey trinsch, just read this. what a bummer about the job. for me though, losing my job five years ago was a blessing in disguise. it made me stop and since and i've starting working freelance then. i haven't been looking back...

    wishing you lots of ideas and new openings!

  15. Eftersom igen andre tilsyneladende har reageret på dit ønske om "tricks" til at få hyacinter til at blomstre igen, så prøver jeg. Eftersom I formentlig ikke har frost eller i hvert fald ikke hård frost, tror jeg at du bare skal plante dem udenfor og give dem vand, så de aldrig tørrer helt ud. Så tror jeg at de vil blomstre igen - måske ikke første sæson, men i '11 i hvert fald. I DK er problemt at holde dem levende til vinteren er overstået og så få dem plantet, men det kan lade sig gøre. Venlig hilsen og godt nytår EM i DK
