A Ball, a Burn, a Bike

The sun came out for a few hours sometime last week. Then it went away again. Then it came back full-on for a whole Saturday, with temps in the 70s, just in time for an away-day of high school soccer at Ramstein. Many of our girls, unaccustomed as they were to all of this sunlight and warmth ("What is this giant heat-making yellow ball in the sky??"), later attempted to cover up sunburns while getting ready for Prom that evening at Kloster Machern. It was a busy, bright, fun day.

Sunday was partly-cloudy, and Husband took off in the early-a.m., before anyone else was awake, for a long bike ride.

He's very happy with his new German bike, a Bergamont. His friend made fun of him for getting a basket on the back, but hello--how else are you supposed to haul groceries or a small, not-entirely-thrilled-about-it Yorkie (not pictured this time)?

It's looking really green around here. Have I mentioned it's rained a lot?

Home from his ride, Husband also got a shot of the back of our rock garden. We're starting to see some color back there.

Here's hoping you have a pleasant weekend. I'll be hanging with a group of thirty eighth-graders in Berlin for two nights!

I definitely envy your warm weather! It's still nothing but rain over here. Summer weather has to show up eventually, right?

I totally want a bike and basket, can't believe we still haven't made that happen.
Enjoy Berlin!
