My brother-in-law told me my 5th full day in Germany would be a “no travel” day. I was hoping that meant a “relax day” but it was not. He told me they really needed to spend some time in their 2 gardens [land they own, about a 5 minute drive from their house] harvesting vegetables & nuts, and composting the hundreds of apples and pears that had fallen from their trees.
I have NO IDEA if this was a good idea. About 2 years ago the piece of thick, plate glass that has always covered the painted bureau in our bedroom broke when something heavy fell on it. Since then the 2 pieces have been sitting on the girl cave floor. Today after work I decided to try fixing the glass.
Lately it’s been so rainy, which is great, because our plants & trees & grass & rivers need it! Sometimes I wake up at night when the rain gets heavy and listen to it splattering onto the deck instead of going quietly down the gutter. Every time I hear it I think “I really need to get up there and see why it’s not draining”.
