I hope your Saturday weather is as beautiful as mine.
I started the day fairly early for a weekend.
Ate breakfast, visited the fruit and vegetable lady, did some housework then hit up the gym.
Body Balance, how I love thee.
My post-workout snack included 1 apple and 2 apricots.
Saturday shopping continued at the Asian grocery store and the supermarket to buy more avocados- gotta love the sale!
I came home, dropped off my gym bag and shopping, then left for an impromptu date on the Rhine.
Today was the perfect day to sit river side in a beer garden.
The Rhine was busy! Boats were out for work and play. People were walking, riding bikes, running, and skating. I love people watching.
My food and drink consumptions included a beer and baguette with tomato, mozzarella and basil.
Kölsch is the regional beer of the Rheinland.
After relaxing as spectators, Sebastian and I became the spectacle as we walked along the Rhine, laughing and having a good ol’ time.
I dropped Sebastian off at work then continued to walk around town, taking photos of some of the beautiful sights.
Can you imagine this being your home?
A tradition from this region is the giving of a May tree. On May 1st, love-struck lads cut down birch trees, decorate them with streamers and hearts with the names of their loves, and place the tree by the bedroom window of their sweethearts. Some trees still remain into June.
A lovely and peaceful street.
With the World Cup kicking off this week, South Africa, football, and German flags are everywhere! This advert caught my eye today! I’ll have to give the drink a try!
Back at home, I whipped up some coconut butter in the food processor. If you want to try this but don’t want to spend a fortune of coconut flakes, look in your Asian food store. I bought two big bags for €5.
Then continued into my evening meal. Dinner consisted of left-overs from my staff lunch yesterday. The food was catered by the husband of the other Year 4 assistant. This is the second time we’ve been so lucky to eat his specialties.
My dinner went from this…
How much can I stuff into a teany-tiny container?
Tabbouleh, zucchini stuffed with goat’s cheese, lentil salad, and roasted potato topped with tzaziki and baba ganoush.
Later followed by a simple dessert of kefir, strawberries, blueberries and granola.
Night all, it’s movie time!
