Germany – Day 17

11 Jul

Yup. Another one of those days that doesn’t allow much to say. We ran some errands after lunch today. I had a package to mail back home, then we stopped at Donna’s quilting gab which is just as it sounds. A quilting group that really does more talking than anything else. I got to meet some of the women there which was fun 🙂 and see some of the things they were working on which were impressive to say the least.  We waited in line to pump gas after that and then headed over to the Commissary for some groceries. OH! We DID find Happy Hippos there which totally made my day 🙂 So we bought a bunch of them 🙂 🙂 🙂 Then we drove to Praktiker to get some light bulbs and something else that we couldn’t find.

Unfortunately, Don is feeling so bad that he can’t go with us tomorrow 😦 so I picked out a card that looked sympathetic. I couldn’t read it, but it had seashells and sand and it looked like someone might write “Feel Better” on it. After that it was home again to do a lot of nothing before our 6 o’clock drinks on the circle. We had the most awesome soup today that I picked out at the grocery store. Originally we had planned to make Zuppa Toscana because it is my favorite, but I got lazy and found a good looking potato soup that we just added Italian sausage to and Wah-La! It was WoNdErFuL. 🙂

We watched an episode of Due South and then scattered and made our way to bed. Tomorrow, Donna and I are off to the mother country!
