We have been totally lazy this weekend.
Yesterday, Saturday, was a Bank Holiday here in Germany (Reunification Day) and that means that it's a REAL Bank Holiday. No shops are open. Nothing happens. Hardly anyone is on the streets. It doesn't matter that it's a Saturday.
Usually, Saturday Bank Holidays drive me a bit crazy but not this one. We decided that it was going to be sloooooow. We would get up late. Sit around. Be lazy. Do nothing. Watch crappy daytime TV. And that is exactly what we did!
I won't even tell you how late we got up! Let's just say it was not single digits. And the same today. A lovely, relaxed day.
We went out to dinner last night to celebrate 11 years since we met (can it really be so long?!?) and mmmm, it was delicious. Here's my layout to recognise this milestone.
And then late last night I read this entry on Libby's blog. I got quite emotional. Her words were sweet and stuck a chord.
What did I do before scrapbooking?
- I took a lot of photos but didn't know what to do with them.
- I kept piles of memorabilia but could hardly remember what bits represented what memory.
- I collected pens and papers but they were not pretty and were rarely used up.
- I knew that I wanted to capture those past memories and my innermost thoughts, but didn't know how.
I love living here. I don't really get homesick any more (well, rarely anyway). But when I hear about Libby's crops, I really feel it. I wish I was there more often. I love it every time I go and I love to see the girls, to spend all my time giggling and being unproductibe and I love every minute! So guys, you know that I would be there more often if I could! But I'm always there in spirit!
Oh, and I almost forgot - Happy Anniversary Libby and Jon. We wish you all the happiness in the world.
