Well, It's official.We now have a stalker.
She responds to the name "Cha Cha
She waits for us, hidden in the bushes next to our private downstairs entrance. As soon as we approach, she emerges from the shadows. Her eyes glittering and she blocks the doorway. The meowing begins.
When we open the shades, I see her watching
us. Just silently.It's getting a little creepy now.
I threatened to press harassment charges, but she's not taking me seriously...apparently
. We devote our mornings to her service. Every demand she makes, we submit to them. It's just not enough. She wants more and more. Everywhere I go....there she is
Our boss isn't returning for another 7 days.
We're in the middle of a 4 day Easter Vacation from work. It's nice having time off to just unwind.
Yesterday we took a walk through nature. I let Eric lead the way because he seemed to know where he was going. He handed me a walking stick
. The woods seemed to stretch on forever...
We ended up in an old German village from the 1600's. Everything was preserved and historical.
we climbed up the ladder and entered the old windmill
. The floors were creaky and bent underneath our weight. I was certain it was going to cave in. It's amazing how it held up for so many centuries. This was the view of the little town from the small window.
All the houses were abandoned, but left open for the public.
The insides of the homes were musty, dusty and smelled of mildew. It contained the original furniture..
There was such a feeling of history. You could imagine the ghosts of the people that used to live in these homes wandering about. This is a picture of the last inhabitants of this particular little home.
Happy looking couple...
I wonder what their life was like..
We continued on and walked down a pathway in an open field. The weather was beautiful.
There were a lot of holes dug up, little piles of dirt everywhere.
"Mole hills", Eric said.
"There are HUNDREDS of them.. they must have been busy"
"This is the work of about 5 moles" Eric observed "Gutrud's father used to smoke them out of their holes and then smash them with a shovel over the head when they emerged. Tossed their bodies in the trash"
I just stared at him in horror.
, It's brutal" He said "I was really disturbed when I saw him do that as a child"
"That's horrible! Couldn't he just put it in a little cage and release it somewhere else??", I asked "I mean it's one thing if you're killing the mole to feed your family but..."
"haha..We're having Mole
We reached the "tierpark"(animal park). It's a free nature preserve with a lot of wildlife. Bears, birds, farm animals..etc.
I couldn't believe how perfect the day turned out.
I took this picture at the end of the day during our walk home.
After that we went to "Asia Town" and "Dockside".
Today my legs ache though. We walked miles yesterday and I'm paying for it. In 2 hours we have to meet our friend, Bastian. We're having a Sushi Night in his apartment. Tomorrow we're taking an "Easter Walk" (whatever that is
...) with some other friends. I wish there was a way to transport ourselves to America so I could spend Easter with my family. I'm feeling a bit homesick. Holidays like Easter and Christmas never feel the same in a foreign country.Thank you
for your T.V. Show suggestions. I printed out the comments section to the previous entry and handed it to Eric. He just left for Karstadt with it. I'm going to let him decide on the boxset. It seems like Grey's Anatomy
had the biggest following and enthusiastic response. I'm curious about this "McDreamy
" guy everyone keeps mentioning.
That's all for now.Happy Easter greetings
going out to my family
out there. I miss you Mom, Jay, Laura. Please give Dad and Amber a hug for me.
I hope everyone is having a great Easter Weekend.signing off.
