Because Family Matters, we will be spending the next
month in Germany, visiting family.
For the past 30 years they have been coming to Canada
and we've hosted them in our home.
So we are really looking forward to this delightful exchange.
During this time we will all be taking an
8-day cruise on the Danube River.
The river cruise boat holds less than 200 people.
The cruise departs from Passau, Germany through to
Krems, Vienna, Bratslavia, and Budapest.
There was talk of going to the Opera House in Vienna,
but most of us did not want to sit through 6 hours listening to Wagner,
so we will be listening to a mix of Operetta's in Budapest.
Meanwhile, we are thankful for a young couple with two children,
that will be moving into our home,
while they renovate their own place.
So it's good for both parties.
So why am I pulling my hair out, cleaning house??
They would never notice.
They are such so happy to have a place of quietness.
I will be missing the blossoms that are just waiting to burst
with every bit of sunshine and warm air.
The bottom picture is of our big oak tree which still has a few
fall branches clinging to it, amongst them are the new buds.
I will miss my two little boys, and the rest of my family
and of course all of my blog family.
In no time I will be posting pictures of our recent trip.
So long my friends.
I think we have the travel bug this year,
but I gotta run, we've got a flight to catch...
