That pretty much sums up my weekend. Sounds good, no?
We met with the German meetup group on Friday. It was only 5 of us, but we still had a great time. J got to speak more German than he has spoken with me in months. I know, there really is no excuse. We get lazy is all. It’s a shame. Hopefully, he’ll get a whole lot more practice in this group, because everybody seems very eager to converse in German and the native speakers among us are the valuable resource that they need to improve. It’s a perfect setup :)
We also watched a German movie later that night. “Mostly Martha” (German title: Bella Martha) with Martina Gedeck (who also starred in “The lives of others”). It’s amazing that movies that I haven’t even heard of before make it over here to the States . “Mostly Martha” is one of them – although it was a very good movie and it obviously was so popular in the US that it inspired a US version of it: “No Reservations” with Catherine-Zeta Jones. Wow, an American movie that was inspired by a German movie.Â LetÂ that sink in for a minute…that, when more often than not every successful movie on the big screens seems to come from the US these days.
Anyone who wants to wallow in some German pride here with me for a minute? ;)
Then weÂ went to Karaoke again this weekend. J seems to get a kick out of singing in front of people again and it gives us the opportunity to get out of the house. If that isn’t excuse enough ;)
On Sunday, IÂ went
grocery shopping on a somewhat unplanned shopping trip and found those beauties.
Just couldn’t resist… I totally have a thing for red shoes and they seem comfortable. I needed some comfortable shoes that go with skirts and jeans and easily dress up a and down. Don’t you love them already?
And, how was your weekend?
