Rain/Regen

It has been hot and muggy the last few days with lots of rain in between.  I have made mostly salad type foods, like these raw zucchini bites with cheese, parsley, and lemon juice, and a vegetable salad with grilled tilapia.

Die letzten Tage waren heiß und schwül und immer wieder hat es dazwischen geregnet.  Ich mache viele Salate, wie diese rohen Zucchinestücke mit Käse, Petersilie und Zitronensaft und einen Gemüsesalat mit gegrilletem Fisch.  





We managed to plant some vegetable plants in our community garden bed, but I have not taken any pictures yet.

Wir haben einige Gemüsepflanzen in unserem Beet im Schrebergarten gepflanzt, doch habe ich noch nichts fotografiert.  

On Sunday I became godmother to little Heinrich.  After church we had a picnic at Letchworth, but it rained and rained.  Nevertheless, all eleven children played in the rain, while baby Heinrich slept through all the wetness.

Am Sonntag bin ich Taufpatin von Heinrich geworden.  Nach der Kirche gab es ein Picknick bei Letchworth, aber es hat fast die ganze Zeit geregnet.  Trotzdem haben alle elf Kinder im Regen gespielt, während der Täufling die ganze Zeit geschlafen hat.

  1. Yes, we are having rain here too! And it is so muggy and uncomfortable! Such New York weather we are having. I must write though, Eva, it looks very, very pretty by you!!! I love the rainy country road picture you took through the car window. At least it looks like you took it through the car window. It's how I always picture upstate New York: small windy roads with incredibly verdant meadows and forests rolling along beside! I have sweet memories of car rides with my parents when I was about 9 or 10 years old up and down the hills of Otsego county (Cooperstown was a favorite destination). My sister had just started college at this time and I had turned into an introspective only child, daydreaming out the window :) I missed her terribly and I remember being enchanted with these weekend car rides.So upstate New York has a magical place in my memory :) What county are you in?

    Congratulations on your godchild! That's just wonderful. And it's always good to have some playing in the rain days!

    1. Today was much better, not so muggy anymore. How is it in the city? It is very pretty here. Many people from Buffalo come down here on the weekends to enjoy the area. The air is also very clean. Yes, the first picture was taken through the car window on a seasonal highway. We have quite a few of those around here. Most of them are glorified dirt roads, but show up on maps. The picture was taken in Wyoming County, but we live in Allegany County. Technically this is not Upstate New York, but Western New York. I did not know that your sister is so much older! That must have been hard to be an only child all of a sudden. We have been to Cooperstown and I have been to Poughkeepsie and even north of that. Very similar to here, but people are poorer. Where did your sister go to college?

  2. P.S. I finally put up a puppet show for Flora that Morgana had put together last spring.

  3. Den Regen könnten wir hier auch gebrauchen, zumindest als Abwechslung. Wir müsen im Moment ganz schön giessen auf unserer Freilandparzelle. Hab ich Dir das erzählt? Ich habe gestern Bilder gepostet von unserem Gemüse, es wächst doch einiges. Im Regen spielen ist doch auch schön, die Kinder sehen aus als haben sie Spaß! Hört sich nach einer schönen Taufe an, herzlichen Glückwunsch zur Patenschaft!

    1. Wirlkich? Hier ist es sooo naß! Ich würde den Regen gerne verschicken. Wir haben zu viel. Ich gucke gleich mal, was bei Euch alles so wächst. Den Kindern hat der Regen nichts ausgemacht, wir Erwachsenen haben sogar auch einen kleinen Spaziergang gemacht, aber es war halt alles grau.

    2. Yes very true.

      I have found a way of blogging from the iPhone!! Yay!! Not least because we our computer is still snarled and Sara's old computer has packed in and we are awaiting a new hard drive ;-). It was a happy accident that I found a blogger app for the iPhone, so hoping to be posting on a regular basis.

      Love to you all

    3. Wonderful! I don't have an iPhone, but you can wonderful things with them. I hope your computer problems will improve soon. I am having a problem with my battery and need to take it onto campus, but I have not done it so far.
