Morning Glory!

October 31/07 12:52 p.m.

Marvellous atmosphere this morning on the levy! Have been out with the bike and Herr Hund, the sun trying to fight through the mist, the meadows glowing frosted white and the barges on the river gliding in the haze. And then about a hundred or more wild geese rose from an adjoining harvested cornfield, where they had been feeding on the leftovers and flew across us towards the river so low, you had the feeling you could touch them. What a sight!
Moments like this make me happy not to be a city dweller.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Those beautiful Colours of Autumn








October 28/07 3:35 p.m.




Autumn would be my favoured season if...yes, if there would not be winter lurking in the background. We had been driving to Hungen (near Giessen/Hessen) to have a look and cuddle our new family member and we ejoyed that drive on the Interstate,bordered by woods in changing colours. And since Herr Hund had been along, the two of us took an early morning walk in the forrest, did not meet a soul.




Had a great meal with the young family last nite at the "Klostermühle" Restaurant, the little ladie's first time out among a crowd and she behaved very well. Ate by herself with a spoon! eh, little joke!! But she really is such a big kid already, has to grow about one meter, more or less, than she will be Landfrau's size. And that's no joke!

Yesterday

October 25/07 10:23 a.m.

Having a kind of computer klitsch, so this is a try! -

Had been downtown yesterday, mainly to buy little clothing for our XXL - baby, had to get the 2-4 months size already. Well, we shall inspect her this weekend, she and her mom will be home from the hospital then, if all goes well. We will stay at the hotel Alte Klostermühle in Lich (where the good beer comes from, Lich i.e.) do not want to burden the little family! - It's a 2 1/2 hours drive from our place here.
While downtown took the opportunity to buy some festive clothes,needed in December, the outfit I wanted to wear, does not meet the approval of man of the house. Anyway, bought this black stuff now and think look like a priest,nun or what have you. I simply hate black! Well, comes in handy for funerals - and this is BLACK HUMOR!

Winter is coming

A little Progress

October 2107 4:45 p.m.

So finally our little "mother to be" has moved to the hospital, had been in the delivery room, but has been transferred back to her room, our great-grandchild obviously does not want to be labeled a "Sunday-child"! - The family wraps itself in patience! - As long as Mummy to be and baby are well it's fine.

In the Waitingroom

October 19/07 7:37 p.m.

That's where the family is hanging around, waiting for a new member to be added. - Should have arrived actually October 16, but seems to be too fond of the present accomodation. So,we have to be patient!
Have been at daughter No. 2's house today,Landfrau took a cake still warm out of the oven, daugther , Landfrau and the "dog-pack" went for a nice walk around the area, which is mostly farms, family homes and fields and by the time we came home, cake had cooled out. Tasted yummy!
For the weekend grandson will be our houseguest, so there will be action, keeps us young (eh, did I say young? quite pretentious!).
And our farmer, where I order our "every year again" St. Martin' goose, has put the sign out today, so pretty soon I will be into greasy cooking, ugh!

But till then we hope to have welcomed our new family- member! And no, daughters are not the Mum to be!

Food for Brain and Tummy


October 16/07 7:45 p.m.






See above Painting? As of tomorrow morning it will be mine, because Landfrau will break into the Museum Kunstpalast during this nite and just take it away. There are enough paintings left in the exhibition "Bonjour,Russland" for others to look at. Above one I really fell in love with! -



Had been such a great day again yesterday,we are having the summer right now, we have not had, but it will be finished as of tomorrow, I am afraid. So the nice day had been the reason to zoom downtown to do something for our education and tummy had to be fed too, so we had lunch at the riverbanks at the CANOO again, it is such a nice ambience,having good food and taking in the City skyline.






And today should be a great day for the family,but more about that in due time!!

Friends, here is your weekend - fun! Enjoy!

I've been so right!






October 13/07 7:34 p.m.


A very delightful Golden October it has been in Luxembourg. And a relaxing little holiday with lots of superb food on top. Landfrau did a certain amount of excercising, like swimming, walking with "Herr Hund" and steambath and sauna. Also treated myself to a very nice massage. And we had some brainfood too, went to Vianden to visit the medieval castle, it has been worth it. Had to park the dog at the entrance, no dogs allowed on the premises, I do not think the medieval knights had been so fancy about that.
The visit had been worth it, you have a tremendous view from up there and the insides has been well restored or is on the verge of beeing done. Aside from that, I must say that Luxembourg is a countryside with lots of forrest, hills, meadows and cows,cows,cows. Anyway, the region we had been at. We did not visit Lux.town this time.
Sure will miss those walks uphill towards the forrest in the morning,always made me think of "Avalon", seeing the outline of the Bourscheid castle rise out of the mist, covering the valley.
One thing for sure, we will be back!

Königsallee

Königsallee

October 3/07 9:30 a.m.

It should be mentioned, it is nice, to have an attractive city with such a "famous" road close by. Helps to walk around there once a while and to shop, Landfrau treated herself to "TOD'S" last week and walks now on cloud seven. Have to feel fancy once a while, usually I'm a coutry bumkin or is it pumpkin ? (Would fit me better :) :) ! )
