Summer is fading here in Europe. We had a viscious heat wave the end of July- it brought flashbacks to 2003 when 3000 french people died, but it has rained every day for the last 3 weeks. I can feel autumn in the air, which is bittersweet for me. Fall means that winter is coming, and winter in Germany is long, grey and cold. I do not escpecially enjoy winter in Germany.
This summer we have been busy working on projects around our house. We are fortunate to have a wonderful landlord that has given us free reign in our house. For Don and I it allows us to enjoy the rights and privledges that homeowners have, which we are except that the home we own is in the states and not here in Germany! I posted a few pictures of our house and my summer painting project. I know, it’s a little invasive to have pictures of our home plastered on the internet, but it’s not like I can invite you over for tea. I painted the first floor living space while Don was in the states at a friends wedding last month. He knew that I had a project to work on while he was gone, but he didn’t really know what I had planned. Thankfully he really liked it. Now if I could just get him to hang my curtains, the room will be comlete. I may have to learn how to work the power drill!
We were off line for a few weeks due to computer problems, but we are up and running again. More posts are coming, I promise.
