And, I’m Back

Hello everyone. I am back from vacation and sitting here thinking that it went by too quickly but I had a very nice time so that’s what counts. It was so relaxing that I ended up not blogging and hardly spent any time at the computer. I read seven books. I guess all that computer time really does eat into my reading time. Ha.

The last couple of days we were in Germany we went to Hannover to visit with a friend and we also went to a monastery to see a calligraphy exhibit. Here are a few images:

I love being in Hannover on a Saturday. There are so many people in the city center going in and out of shops, chilling out at cafes and it’s just great for people watching.

I don’t like beer but I think this looks crazy-fun. If I had seen the wine bike then maybe I would have had to hop on. Hee,hee.

We had a lovely day for an outing in the Harz and to see Kloster Drübeck. The monastery is celebrating 1050 years. Can you believe that? It’s beautiful.

We also got to see some very nice calligraphy on display.

Of course after all the wandering around and going up and down stairs some time out in the cafe area is a must. I had some delicious cake (a bit like cheesecake) and the requisite cappuccino.

We had a lot of fun. As we walked out I saw a bunch of bright sunflowers and honestly how can you not burst into smiles when you see these.

So that’s a bit about our trip. I will try to get my act together and give you some quickie reviews on the books I read. In the meantime, what have you been up to? Read some good books? I can’t wait to catch up!
