So, here it is, my first blog post. We have been here in Germany for five weeks. So I have been a little slow on getting this thing started. So much has happened during this first month, where to start? We arrived without issue. Dirk and Cheyenne came in the middle of July, they were […]Read More First blog post, no really, it’s my first blog post
Wouldn’t be nice if we could all just meet up at the coffee shop and have a little Kaffee und Kuchen? Coffee and cake for those not living here in Germany. Or maybe some Bier und Bratwurst? Well, neither are possible here in Germany right now. As a matter of fact, we just started back […]Read More A Little Kaffee und Kuchen

Oh, Binxy Cat. What can I say, you are a force to be reckoned with. She usually sleeps under our bed. But, between 0300 and 0500, she climbs into bed with us for a snuggle. Or more specifically, she lays across my neck for a snuggle. Have I mentioned that I do have a cat […]Read More Life With Binxy, the Tomato Killer

Today, the government is meeting to […]Read More Fear and Loathing in the Time of Covid-19
The kids are starting back to school here as the lock down measures are being lifted in Germany. I’ve been wondering if they will be given writing assignments like the ones we used to get in the States? The assignments we would have in the Fall, after the summer break? The “What I Did on […]Read More What I Did on my Summer Vacation…I mean Global Pandemic Lock Down.
These two planters might not look like much, they aren’t very fancy. They look a bit out of place sitting in my living room window. But, they are filled with hope, and maybe a little magic too. They are filled with soil and freshly planted tomato seeds. A variety of tomato that I have never […]Read More A Little Dirt Full of Hope

Thanksgiving morning started out lovely. We all slept in a bit, I shared a leisurely breakfast with my husband. We sipped coffee and made plans for the day, plans to FaceTime with Sierra and then later with Uncle Larry and Aunt Doris.

Yep, the announcement came yesterday, Germany will close down many “non-essential” businesses for the next 4 weeks in an attempt to slow the spread of Covid-19.
