Behind our apartment building is a little path which leads to a GartenPlatz. It’s an area of the town where people can rent an individual garden plot if they don’t have one of their own at home, many of them are filled with beautiful flowers as well as fruits and vegetables. Mikey and I often go on walks down there, the train tracks run right past so he can watch trains from the bridge, pointing out the colours of each and excitedly following them from one side of the bridge to the next as they disappear underneath and reemerge.
Last week we took a walk over there to watch the circus setting up on the Messplatz, standing at the top of the steps that overlook the grounds where fleamarkets are held several times a month and now a circus on one side and being able to look over the gardens on the other side. We walked slowly home, Mikey noticing that the sun was so bright he could see bold shadows on the ground. He danced around in circles, making his shadow move, watching it, laughing and chased it almost all the way home.
We spent yesterday with the lovely Household6Diva and her boys, under the guise of my husband talking to us to get some military spouse input on the direction of Army Social Media. In fact we ended up chatting all afternoon on all the subjects that we can’t usually talk about in only 140 characters on Twitter. It was a great afternoon and we hope to be able to see them again soon!
