It only rained like ten drops last night, so it was another hot and sticky Saturday here. I was out with Damien all morning, doing the shopping for the long holiday weekend: some chicken at the butchery, cheese and veggies and some perfect strawberries at the farmer's market, then off to the fruit store.
Damien and I do this every Saturday (if I'm off work) and both enjoy it very much. He gets something to test eat basically at every stop. The shop owners all adore him, 'cause he is such an enthusiastic eater. Once on the way to the cheese stand at the farmer's market, Damien started yelling: "Look mommy, cheese, ...best cheese" He repeated this at the top of his lungs till we finally got there, where he repeated it in a normal tone of voice this time addressing the guy behind the stand while nodding encouragingly to emphasize his statement. Half of the people at the farmer's market were smiling at him. With that kind of advertisement, naturally he gets a huge piece of carrot cheese extra to try on the spot. Damien then goes on to bite off a huge piece, goes "Mmmhhhhhhh" and closes his eyes while eating, swallows and says "gut(good in German), really, really gut. You get the picture.
Then on to H&M to buy cute set for a co-worker, who just had a baby boy. It's a tank top with a pirate face in light blue, white, and khaki, matching khaki clamdiggers, and socks and bandana with white little skulls on light blue - too cute. Damien then went on to pick out a t-shirt for himself and he found matching clamdiggers to match too. They weren't even hanging next to each other. I was so surprised, I bought it. He really doesn't need it, but I actually love it and still can't believe he did that. He has never showed interest in clothes shopping till today. When I tell this to my mom she will be tickled.
Then we went home, cooked, ate, had a nap (better I did, while he rolled out toilet paper in the living room, which he then put in a shoe-box and put on the toilet seat, oh well, it could have been worse), on to a girl-friend's house to do some handiwork (connected her Ikea-, what else ;-), closets, and hung up a shelf on the wall). Met at her flat with Christian (he had to hold up the shelf, while we put the screws in), and then the 3 of us did some supermarket grocery shopping, met & chatted with a close friend in town, after that off home and cooked.
And then it finally rained. The air is nice and cool now. And I'm not sticking to my chair anymore while searching freebies - yippie :-)) Here's is what I found:
