The fabulous weather continued all week and there is still no rain in sight. They were predicting thunderstorms on Tuesday but it just got a little cloudy and then it all blew away by evening. Spring is in full force – all of the bulbs are done and now the fresh scents of lilacs, wisteria, and chesnut blossoms are drifting in the open window as I sit here typing. Birds are twittering and the sky is blue and cloudless. Honestly though, I really wouldn’t mind some rainy weather – it is more conducive to writing!
Speaking of writing, for those of you wondering, I have been working on my novel off and on over the past few months after a 6-month hiatus last year. I am up to nearly 120 pages but it is very slow going. I keep getting distracted; I spend hours agonizing over a few sentences, or I go off and do internet research on some trivial detail. I'm sure that part of my problem is all of the uncertainty over how long we are going to be here – I thought I had the rest of the year, but if Chrysler is sold and we have to go home, I will be terribly disappointed.
We took Cody for an early walk today and then headed over to
We had a lovely time rolling sushi and sitting out in the garden, enjoying the view towards Weilimdorf.
