Saturday we had some rain showers. We keep changing our plans. First we thought about driving to Mannheim in Germany (2.5 hours drive from Basel). We heard about an awesome sport shop there. Then we felt a little lazy making that far drive so we googled around and found an outlet outside of Basel about an hours drive away. We did not find anything particular there but did find us both each a light weight rain jackets perfect for both hiking and biking that were both on sale.
Sunday turned out very nice and actually pretty sunny and all. Cleaned up our porch a bit. Had some boxes with plants that just looked wilted and sad. Removed those, dusted and brushed.
My very favorite thing about weekends are sleeping in and then enjoying a loooong and yummy breakfast. I am a real breakfast fan. If there was one meal I would chose to go with for the rest of my life my pick would be easy. Fresh fruit and berries, wonderful assorted breads, and a great selection of cheese and cold cuts. Love love love.
Weekends I like to cook something that is allowed to take more time and that is a little more special. I like to set the table in a nice way and to use the nice wine glasses. Weekend dinners with good food, good wine and longer conversations is also something that I love.
We drove up to this castle ruin just across the French border. The oldest part being from the 13-hundreds. A popular picnick spot for families as we saw many families with young kids there. Quite a nice view over the fields and country side.
Today I am off to my first German class for the semester here in Basel.
