I wonder as I wander…

Monday, June 30, 2014



This morning, we awoke to a chilly, cloud infested German sky.  Gone was the thick, sweltering, humid blanket that wrapped us in summer just a few weeks ago. 

The goal of the day: To do something. 

What?  

We had very little aim. 

Soldier Boy has been traveling for work so often lately, that all he wanted to do was cocoon himself in the granny square quilt that the 86-year old woman downstairs crocheted for him years ago when the heat went out and bake his brain on movies.  Don't get me wrong.  I wish I had more time to get clued into cult movies, popular movies, classic movies, etc., but I needed to do something.  Anything, but gluing my eyes to a screen! 

And so, into the forest we went!  We walked down a new path; an old logging trail that took us through a new section of the forest, and got our boots dirty, and got some new perspective on the world.

  7. Such an awesome oasis, I'd go there to escape every day after work. Hope you guys are enjoying the World Cup games! Germany is a huge contender so I can only imagine the celebration.

    1. We used to be really good about hiking and walking in the woods before I started working. Now, I work 12 hour days and usually don't get home until 10 PM! The World Cup has been interesting over here. A few weeks ago, I happened to notice that every other car on the road had flags sticking out of it! Now, when the games are on, if the windows are open we can hear the neighbors going crazy when Germany scores!

    1. There are those days where the sofa and movies are totally my cup of tea… but that's all I did the whole time Soldier Boy was traveling, so I was definitely ready for a change!
