We have been waiting out the rest of winter, staying busy with our regular "to-do's". On Saturday a friend and I went to the market in Nürnberg, which is where I got the flowers pictured above. The markets and stores are full of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and many others. It is hard not to buy them all, they are so beautiful, and reasonably priced. The winter sales were on, so we found some good deals in the big department stores there, like Kaufhof. Of course we had to swing by the Starbucks as well, just can't pass it by. It's usually pretty busy, and always a few other Americans. Big glass windows looking out over the Pegnitz river, by the Fleischbrücke. Very nice place to relax, warm up and people watch.
We are hoping to take some trips when it warms up a bit, and when Kenny isn't working 6 or 7 days a week! Hard to fit in a trip with that kind of schedule. We still find time to enjoy being in Germany though, even if it is just a trip downtown. There is always something to see, even if we've seen it a few times. We never get tired of looking at the huge churches, half-timbered houses, and cobblestone streets.
