The morning has been very pleasant, considering. The spring inserted yesterday seems to be working. My ‘Madonna’ gap is growing at a rate of knots – soon, you’ll be able to park a bus in it.
Seeing as my groovy son has to learn for another Schularbeit next week (and the online exercises suggested by the school are, of course, NOT kostenlos, I gave him the task of writing me a ‘handy guide’ to the difference between ‘das’ and ‘dass’. The resulting text was better than anything I ever learned at uni – hats off!
Whilst he was busy teaching me the ins and outs of German grammar, Little Miss BD used her nimble fingers to peel my garlic cloves ready for Special Carrots for lunch. Today’s version went well – and the Perfect Bake function functioned on my muffins (ready for visitors tomorrow).
As well as all this, it looks as though Little Miss BD’s cherry tree will have a bumper crop this year. If so, it’ll be a poignant reminder of Mum. She planted the tree for Little Miss BD’s birth and probably expected to be around for a few more harvests than she was. I did too. Gone too soon, eons too soon.
