I am married to the love of my life and am finally able to shower him with all of the attention he deserves. I am now retired and living the life here in Europe. I am an American, he is an Australian, and this is our second overseas address. The first was Shanghai, China and now Munich, Germany. Come along and live the life with us as we continue our adventure of discovering all Europe has to offer.

 Peace and rest at length have come. All the days long toil is past, And each heart is whispering, Home, Home...  Thomas Hood. 1799-1845.

     It was a splendid weekend.  The words cozy, rest, contentment, peace, and joy all come to mind when reflecting the past two days.  With nothing special on the agenda, we donned our fleece and slippers,

boiled the kettle,

and let the day while away as it would.
      Sudoko for him, crochet for me, and a bit of an online bridge lesson for us both.  Inclement weather had us debating the wisdom of venturing out into the cold.  With nothing special to do, we decided to do just that--nothing special.

     I made a quiche with carmelized onions for a late brunch, which did us just fine.  Warm from the oven, it was the perfect accompaniment for our lazy day at home.

     We are both reading the same novel, "The Good German," by Joseph Kanon which makes for interesting discussion.

     The day simply melted away.....carefree and timeless.  We both languished in the luxury and warmth of our home until the last few rays of sunlight fell below the horizon. 

     Taking it's cue, we both decided to finish our delightful day at home with a nightcap.

Ahhh...the simple pleasures of life....
