A weekend in the life of Meg, Rob, & Hazel

We don’t do these things every weekend, but on a semi-regular basis we find a way to have fun…

  • Go to Weißbierstrube once or twice (Friday and Saturday nights)
  • Go to the Saturday market to look at the pretty flowers, smell the delish bread/meat/cheese, and watch people
  • Explore Esslingen or Stuttgart
  • Maybe Meg works for a few hours
  • Rob could get his hair cut with Fabi (and he did this weekend!)
  • Some day drinking
  • Long walks in the Wald (forest)
  • Hazel loves the walks in the Wald because she gets a chance to become absolutely schmutzig (dirty)….she always finds the muddiest, grossest puddles. What a time to be a dog!
  • Late lunch at Jägerhaus
  • Play cribbage in the sunshine (and 16C weather!) with a beer
  • Teach our friends to play “Up the river, down the river”/”Into the woods” card game
  • Face chat with family and friends =)
  • Plan a trip to North Baden-Württemberg or to Bayern
  • Go to Stuttgart to meet up with some colleagues for authentic Swabisch food and downtown bar experience
  • Weekly deep clean of the apartment

Overall, we try to make the most of our weekends since it’s the only time we are together for real. This week may end up being very productive– we have big plans to (finally) get a proper cell phone plan, to get our own internet, and sign Rob up for Deutsch classes so he can surpass my limited knowledge!

So, PROST! And here are some pictures from the end of the week/weekend:
