A "Table" full of Easter"Scapes"

Once again I must report that I have been M.I.A.. I am still figuring out how to juggle my job, my home-life and my many, many hobbies! Spring has arrived in Germany and we are so enjoying the awesome weather the Good Lord has blessed us with. Gosh, I hope it stays that way!

Holidays bring out the best of family traditions and one of our favorites seems to be painting! For the second year in a row, my nephew-in-law came to paint. Last year the kitchen and hallway got a much needed makeover, this year the living room! Oh wow, is all I can say. The living room looks great and I am already looking forward to next year, when the gang comes back. My sister and her boyfriend also were here, so needless to say the house was full! The weather was great, the food even better and of course....some wonderful tablescapes came together.

Since my husband did such a good job, making my christmas letters, I had him make some for EAster. This time, though in german! And those eggs-candles, well those came from Nanu Nana. 

Easter Sunday Brunch

Easter Saturday "HAM DINNER ".. Oh so good

Good Friday......grilled salmon

The tablerunner was made my niece´s grandmother. I love that I have something of hers. 

Happy Days Everyone. I look forward to spending time with all of you again.

Pontiac Township High School, Pontiac Illinois USA......Berlin Germany 
Virtual Run for Respect 2014
11 April 

Ready to walk 5K for the Virtual Run for Respect

The starting point....

...and she is off! Walking on the Strasse des 17 Juni

...walking towards the Siegessäule(Victory Column)

"Run for Respect" walker sited at the Victory Column(located in Berlin, the capital of Germany

The park is amazing.....we are lucky in so many ways

here is a map, showing just a part of this large park which is located in the middle of the city

...nordic walking is serious stuff

The Brandenburg Gate
(view from the west)

This shows where the city was divided for so long. This path runs along the entire way where the WALL used to stand

Sucessfully walked 5 K for the Virtual Run for Respect

The United States Embassy ( I was lucky enough to get to work there)

The Siegessäule....the victory Column.  We insiders call her the Chick on the Stick!
Here is hoping that the Run for Respect was a a complete success. Congratulations to everyone for taking part.

Awesome time!

Mike, my son and photographer. He got up  on his first day of easter  break to be my own personal photographer. How lucky am I?
