Germany doesn't want me to forget her

I went out to run errands for only a couple hours today, yet many things jumped out to make me remember our trip to Germany.

First I went by the Post Office. Nothing there except I mailed a letter to Germany.  One dollar five cents now. 

Next was the library, the first book that caught my attention was by Stephanie Deutsch.  I ended up getting two books on the Germany shelf instead. Well, they were on the shelf concerning World World II so ... Germany, right?*

I went by ALDI, a German company, to stock up on carrots and broccoli and a few other things.

Then at Walmart, I walked by the entertainment section, glanced up and "von Kaiser" was on a video screen.

Then, I was in the baby department (looking at diapers for Zach) when I heard a clip of "My Favorite Things" playing from a nearby music stand!

Seriously?!

As I noted on Facebook

Thanks to Germany and the 6 hour time difference, I think I am ready for Daylight Savings Time's loss of sleep for the first time ever. I've been awake before 5:30 the last three mornings - perfect!


I've only added a few pictures here, but if you want to see a few things from Germany, Prague or Salzburg, feel free to look.  You can even see my little German children, Uwe and Verena.  By the way, how would you pronounce their names? Uwe especially looks funny to me.  :)

I need to mow the yard. First time this year. Welcome Spring!


*  I haven't read any books so far this month, and I'm not really in the mood to do so.  Been trying to catch up on blogs and newspapers and Facebook stuff.

I think it's a matter of suddenly paying attention and seeing connections that you didn't notice before. Happens to me all the time.

Becky, true! It's still funny to me how our brains do that! :)

Not only do your feet stay Ugg Boots Sale dry but the Thinsulate ultra insulation also ensures greater ease. language learning software It works by trapping air molecules between you and the outside. The more air a material traps in a given space, true religion sale the greater is its insulating value. The microfibers in Thinsulate insulation are far finer than other fibers; they trap more air in less space, which naturally Babyliss Pro 230 makes it a better insulator.
