Es ist mein Geburtstag! It’s my Birthday! Woo-Hoo!
This morning when I got up everyone from Kunstort ELEVEN ArtSpace #kunstortELEVENartspace was waiting for me in the kitchen – for a surprise Birthday champagne toast! How cute is that!!
The word for “Cheers!” in Germany is “Prost!”, and it almost sounds like “post”. That’s good to know, because I may add Henkell Trocken to my morning routine….
That’s Gabriele on the left, followed by me, Hiroko, and Renate!
It was good to be back in Rottenburg! I love the steeple of this Church!
It was a beautiful summer day!
So many homes and buildings in Germany are adorned with flowers!
We stumbled upon a “Buchhaltestelle”, or Book Stop. Anyone can take out a book for free, take it home to read it, or stay reading in the city: then you can return the book, if you wish, or keep it, and replace it with another book! What a great idea! I wish they had an Auto Haltestelle in Germany!
On our walk I encountered the remnants of a most unusual flower!
More blue sky and gorgeous architecture!
After walking around the village, we went to the Neckar River and traveled along the banks for a time
A blue sky filled with clouds, coupled with the warm colors of the homes, made for a gorgeous view – especially when everything reflected in the gentle water of the Neckar River….
So much beauty at every turn!
This would make a great painting!
This would make a great painting too! Ugh! So much beauty everywhere here! I’m like the proverbial “kid in a candy store”!
And my day still wasn’t over! Tonight there was a barbecue, with delicious food, starlit skies, and my new roommate Romie sang for all of us! Woo-Hoo!
I think that out of all my 39 Birthdays….<cough cough>….this one was THE BEST!!! Thanks to everyone who made it special, and for all the wonderful Birthday wishes!!!
