Snow and 45 degree weather minutes apart

It’s time for another “Not Me! Monday”! Unfortunately, I don’t have much to report this week, so it’ll be short.

Anyway, this blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not fully vacuum our apartment for the first time in months discovering our huge need for something else besides a broom & dust pan and electronic sweeper. I wish Dyson vacuums weren’t almost $400!

John and I like to read (for leisure, not for school), and we wanted to still exercise our brains while both of us were under the weather last week. Naturally, we read a lot and there’s absolutely no way we watched about 6 hours of TV one day. Not us.


My parents got here EARLY Saturday morning. Their flight was supposed to arrive just after 7 AM, but instead, they got here just after 6 AM. We also have about an hour drive from where we live to get to the airport. Needless to say, we got up early. We explored Frankfurt a little bit after picking them p from the airport, but because it was so early, nothing was really open so we drove back to Heidelberg.

We toured the city a bit in the car and drove up to Königstuhl, which is about 10 minutes – maybe 15 – from where we live. It’s up at the top of the hill by our house. At the bottom of the hill, it was partly cloudy, but by the time we got to the top of the hill, it was foggy and guess what? snowy! I guess the previous day it had snowed up there, while it had only rained all day down where we live. This picture was taken up there:

Later in the day, we went to the Schwetzingen Schloßgarten (the Schwetzingen castle gardens) to walk around and this is how it looked:



Isn’t it crazy that these pictures were taken on the same day?


Yesterday, we took my parents to our favorite restaurant (the Kaffeehaus am Schlossplatz in Schwetingen) for brunch, and they loved it! We will definitely go again before they leave. After brunch, John gave everyone a tour of his office and then we showed my parents the PX (Post Exchange), which is like a miniature Wal-Mart with a fairly poor selection, but hey, since we don’t have any other options, we’ll take it!

Today I’m attempting to get some schoolwork done, so I’d better get back to it. John is at work and my parents are relaxing and reading. Have a great Monday!

    The weather thing is super funny! It was in the upper 80s in Wichita Falls this past weekend and there is a chance for snow Thursday night. It probably won’t happen, but the fact that there is a chance is Texas Weather at its best.
