Where to begin? Were I stopped last blog-entry, I think. That's when my DH and I went for a short trip to Germany. We had some lovely days together, staying at Bad Laer. We had a quiet hotelroom, great breakfast (that is what I like the most at staying in a hotel, breakfast! At home I'm satisfied with some muesli and milk, but when there is so much choice, I can't help myself from taking it all LOL) and a good rest.
Just let the pictures tell their story!

View from our room

No, this is not only mine, also DH's breakfast!

Visit at Osnabrück

DH is very interested in Germany's history.

He's also interested in other stuff LOL

Castle of Bad Iburg, back and front

On our way home we visited Warendorf, a small village with horses like this everywhere! I didn't talk to everyone of them, but DH did take a picture of all of them, to show youngest DD (she just loves horses!) that stayed at home, with her brother. They did fine together, the house was clean and in good order, so next time, it's again, just me and DH!

What a lovely trip for you both! I know what you mean about breakfast! Glad the house was still standing when you returned!

It's lovely to *meet* you Joke and I had such a lovely visit wandering around your blog... And oh my, what lovely photos of your Holiday in Germany!!! Thanks ever so kindly for sharing as I sooo enjoyed them... Everything is sooo beautiful and your breakfast looks scrumptious!!! You and your DH look like you had such a wonderful time! :-)

Lovely stitching as well... :-) Can't wait to see more of your progress...

I enjoyed seeing the pictures - especially the funny yellow horse! I love animal statues. And yes, you are right, hotel breakfasts are one of the pleasures of traveling... (when they're not small, that is!) My Norwegian partner suffers in France and Italy, a croissant with jam and coffee is just a starter for him! :)

Well even though I am "late" I really enjoyed your picture. I think the photo of you and your husband at the breakfast table is just perfect.

I'm so happy that you had a great time and the childen survived (as did the house) :-)

In my mom's town, Elkton, MD, they have Elk statues everywhere. It was done as a fundraiser where artists decorated the Elk and then local businesses displayed them. My favorite is "Stitches in Time" and is all quilt squares. I will try to get some pictures the next time I'm up there.

I'm glad you and DH had such an enjoyable vacation! Your daughter's artwork is beautiful; she should definitely persue classes in it!
