Holiday Over

It's over.  She's gone and things return to what passes for normal around here, except for the brush hogging going on next door.
It was a great 4 days, ribs were barbequed, marshmallows roasted, and fireworks exploded.
We went to our favorite German Restaurant for her birthday---Zum Rosenhof and tons of Schnitzel, Wurst, Spätzel and Hazelnut Torte
Tour of Germany--Jaeger Schnitzel, Zigeuner Schnitzel, Wiener Schnitzel, Bratwurst, Kartoffel Salad, Brotchen

were consumed.
Jaeger Schnitzel with Spätzel
I always try to get movies she hasn't seen so we watched The Artist, the winner of the 2011 Academy Award for best picture and best actor, Mac and I had seen it and though she'd like it.  A black and white, silent movie and so well done.
Then just for fun we watched The Addam's Family because I love Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston in it.
Lots of time for talking, relaxing and just enjoying having her here.  But all good things come to an end and she flew home last night.  We won't see her until Thanksgiving and that seems such a long, long time.

  1. That meal looks amazing! I've just finished teaching German to the children in 'my' school about to leave for secondary school, and really wanted to give them a session tasting food - yours would have been fantastic! 9Though a little over ambitious for 100 children!)
