Here in Schöppingen, Germany, Europe, World, whenever the weather is nice my colleagues are quick to assure me this is an exceptional condition. I’m told, in so many variations, “The weather in Schöppingen is shit.” I can’t tell if they’re encouraging me to hop outside to absorb the warmth & sun OR if they’re hardening me for the impending dread of the coming months.
Today is a shit day in Schöppingen. However, with it also being Sunday, and the last day of a long weekend that included many delicious beers, dance-y times, and Döner kabobs, I am delighted to sink into the laziest version of myself. This means it’s a day for making mix CDs, shredding up my guitar, lounging extreme, and bathing my laundry (it must be this way, there are no public laundry facilities in Schöppingen). I will consider this day as training for the shit weather blues.
So, mother, likely the only person who reads these words (I’m kidding…maybe…I can’t be certain), I offer the following views of the slowest, sleepiest, Sunday in Schöppingen.
a- Track list for my gorgeous pal Kelly, who requested a nap time CD for her Kindergarten class (see, German and English aren’t so different!). It sure does feel nice to exercise that Music History degree.
b- Thank goodness I packed this CD sticker as a priority.
c- If you were a ghost, or a bird, looking at my Sunday space.
d- This is how most adults do their laundry, if I’m not mistaken.
