For a change of scenery .. a wannabe movie trailer ..

This past weekend I had a bit of fun with the imovie app on my phone. This is what I made... It was ridiculously easy. Just insert photos, video clips. Rearrange images a bit, insert writing and voila!

Wehwehchen and a fairly recent side excursion..

Okay, I finally acknowledged that I  am not getting better.  I have been sick, sick, sick since I've been back from Germany.
The first week back I barely made it out of the house. 
 I took myself to the doctor today.  The whopper of a cold I brought back from Germany has turned into a whopper of a sinus infection with a fever.  I am on antibiotics now.  I need to be well since I go back to work in a few days.  My sommer is over.

I did want to share more photos.  One of the more delightful side trips I took toward the end of my month long journey was a weekend excursion to Würzburg. As a child, I had lived in a small town close to Würzburg and was interested in revisiting the area.

Würzburg is a lovely city with a fascinating history.  Of course, the history of the city was brought alive by fellow blogger Mago who I had the delight of meeting.  Mago is interesting, cool, nice .. and very patient.  The first evening in Würzburg I wanted to hike up to the Festung.  So we hiked and it was hot and we had nothing to drink .. What were we thinking?  But it was all fun, the whole weekend was very enjoyable.  Thanks, Mago!

View from the Festung ..

None of these photos are in any particular order, btw..

Oh ja...!

Und hier habe ich gedacht ich post fast täglich ... Oh well ..
While I have missed my sons, husband, dog, cat, dust bunnies, I have not specifically missed where i live. Its been good to be back to the old homeland and to revisit old haunts...
Such as the street I used to sled down on..

Castle ruins i used to play amongst
Of course, it's always good to revisit Paris ..
Fireworks on Bastille Day..

Looking at at a ton of art ..
Starting to feel overwhelmed by les arts decoratifes.
Appreciating being back im
Dorf with beloved relatives.

A harvest that was turned into jelly..

Johannesbeeren ernten..

Friday morning .. Berries in foam hand on top.. the partial berry harvest with a partial foam on the bottom. 
These Johannesbeeren were harvested in my aunts backyard.
The berry bush is way in the back.  The houses on the left are not hers. My back is towards her house.  To the left is her Scheune.
Don't tell her I took this photo ;-)

Thursday evening ..

When the days are long and brutally hot, it's nice to congregate during the evenings at a favorite local to enjoy a beverage and live music.
