It's raining. It's been raining since about Friday. And it's windy. And not so cold. This is very confusing to my hard-wired sense of what season it is. The weather feels like mid-March and there are Christmas trees everywhere. Sometimes I almost miss the snow, especially because now I wouldn't have to drive in it!
One of the many things that I decided to bring and now wonder why are my cross-country skis. When it does snow, what will I do, take a bus out somewhere to ski? That would be interesting. Of course, if it just keeps raining that won't be an issue.
We don't have snow, but what we do have is dark. Daylight is from about 7:30 or 8 until 4:30. When do the days start to get longer? The 21st I think. But sunny evenings in June might make it all worthwhile.
- Thanks for coming to my blog. It started as a way to keep in touch with family and friends, and now has become an ongoing project. I'm an American living in Germany and trying to travel whenever I can. I write about my experiences as an expatriate (the interesting ones and the embarrassing ones), and about my travels. There are some recurring characters in this blog, particularly my husband Brian and several of our friends. The title comes from the idea that living in a foreign country means making a lot of mistakes. So the things you used to do easily you now have to try over and over again. Hopefully, like me, you can laugh at how idiotic it feels. If you have happened upon my blog, then welcome. Knowing that people are reading what I write makes me keep going. Feel free to write comments or suggestions for future posts.
