Close to France, Germany, Italy...
Green grass in July in the fields
Clean desk (because I moved the clutter to the floor, heh)
David and the kids did all the dishes after dinner last night, a wonderful thing. I took a shower instead.
There are no bran flakes that I can find in stores here, but they do have "Bio Dinkel Pops" cereal. Try saying that out loud with a straight face. We have not tried this cereal. As it turns out, "dinkel" means the grain spelt. The things I learn every day...And of course "bio" means it's organic.
We are one hour and a quarter's drive from Alsace, France. Never been there before. Sounds worth a visit for sure (once we have our residence permit).
We are also just under one hour from southern Germany, and just over one hour to the edge of the Black Forest (Which contains the rise of the Danube River).
And two and a half hours to Lake Como in Italy. I hadn't quite realized all these wonders before moving here. Many exciting prospects to explore.
But for today, I am participating in a user study at my husband's company, then we go together to the American consulate to get our (non) criminal records check, then later in the evening we have a company party the kids get to come to. An eventful day ahead. Onwards!

I have tried that "moving everything to the floor" desk-clearing technique, but it has never served me well in the long-term! I have moved much of my desk clutter to the guest bed! ;-) It is easier to reach that way! Your mother loves you..just keep it out of the "black plastic bags in the shower" which was your grandmother's technique! Ha, ha!!!!
