One Fine Wednesday

It’s been three days since summer officially started yet it’s been a cool day today. Rain poured on us since that day, too! I notice that actually; raining during the longest day of the year. Luckily today, sun showed its happy face.

I’m sitting on one of the benches here in the “innenstadt” or city center buying time. I have been walking around for a good half hour going specifically nowhere. As I sat here I realized it’s a good time to write something on just about anything I see since I’ve been idle here staring at a blank space.

Today is just like any other spring day (yes, it’s still spring weather) when I wouldn’t want to stay under a tree or stand behind any structure that could cover the sun for me. The wind is really cold, it was 14deg before I left home by the way. Seriously though, this is one of those days again when  you really don’t know what to wear. Those times when you go outside you’ll ask yourself if you wore the right clothes after you see others wearing T-shirts while you’re wearing a leather jacket and boots. I really find it funny and sometimes you’ll just have to shake your head and ignore.

Today I see people and their clothing and it’s really confusing to look at. Anybody who would try to guess what’s our weather forecast for today wouldn’t make it right. Haha! Boots, sneakers, flats were present in the shoe parade. T-shirts, pullovers, jackets, sweaters; one could guess it’s a sunny but cool day today.

Wednesday is market day here in Aalen. As usual, fresh from the farm produce are sold. I was thinking of buying a bowl of fresh fruit salad but settled with bread and iced tea for lunch coz there’s no fork that comes with the salad. 😛

Just another day for farm owners

As I sat here I thought of my kids. I bet they’re now excited knowing they’ll shop on their own. Yesterday they ask me if they can be allowed to go to one of the stores here and buy stuff without me. So, to build their confidence I agreed. I was planning to meet them in the store but I couldn’t bear it and instead waited for them near where they’re supposed to cross the street. However, I was “driven away” by son! Hahaha! I wasn’t allowed to come with them to the store and was told to stay outside and wait. :o. I was like, whaaat??!! Well, ok fine so before leaving them alone, I just got few reminders for them; don’t spend all your  money and don’t buy too expensive stuff. 🙂

The shoppers

I decided to stay in one of the ice cream parlors and thought of treating them for ice cream after shopping. Honestly I was surprised as they appeared with the objects they bought in their hands. I know only Ryz has money and I thought she’s the only one who’ll buy something for herself since it was her birthday last 18th. It seemed she also bought something for her big brother. Yeah, that’s sweet Ryz just generous. I didn’t question them too much on the cost of their stuff and just enjoyed that day with our ice cream.

A quick “me time” and time for the kids, a one fine Wednesday indeed!

  1. nice when kids learn to be independent. ur kids walk like tiny grownups, and ur daughter wears ur nail polish:).
    the market picture is really nice, clever of you to choose the clearing up (or unloading?) part. it’s when i see them doing that that i wish all ‘tabu’ or market vendors in the Pinas could have the same transport and stocking facilities that they have here.

    1. Haha! Actually, it’s I wearing her nail polish 😛
      That time vendors were clearing up already. So true, I also wish we have those facilities back home but I guess one really needs to invest a lot and you know how our vendors lack capital for such facility.
      Thanks again for dropping by. 😉
