My dad reminded me in an email that today is the French national holiday. He grew up there, so he always remembers, but I forgot this year, even though my boss at the language school is also French. Vive la France!
Summer has returned, just in time for tomorrow's annual outdoor worship service "Gottesdienst im Grünen." It has gotten rained out a couple of years in a row, so we're grateful for answered prayers and that we'll be able to celebrate out in the fresh air and sunshine this time. I'm planning to use a LOT of sunblock because the stage will be facing the hot morning sun.
Today was the first day in a looong time that we had frozen smoothie weather. I made one for dinner- it was delicious! Vanilla yoghurt, a frozen banana, a half cup of frozen raspberries, 1/2 cup of soy milk, a splash of sweetener. Something tells me that this is going to be a favorite hot day meal substitute!
