Our second daughter turned 19 today. Entering the world just after 1 am, she had announced her determination to be early several hours sooner. So we sent our dinner guests home at about 2200 and she arrived for a prolonged stay several hours later.
As with all off-spring, she has her talents and her challenges. This is her last year of being a teenager. She will finish her Abitur this spring. Next year is still uncertain. I think she will be off to study and perform; US? UK? Germany? We are in that horrible applying and decision stage, made more challenging by the necessity of auditions. It is hard to focus on the future with all the school requirements of now.
We took her and her younger sibs to lunch before taking her back to school.
She is staying through school end on Thursday. The former Ms Pink and her brother came home with us in order to get ready for the trip to the UK.
Minding my other day’s gripe – the sunset in the mountains near Pforzheim was beautiful. A red glowing ball just a finger’s breath above the horizon. Too bad it was barely 1630 in the afternoon.
Finished up the second of Noah’s socks, just have to graft the toe.
I knit two different heels, one a ribbing and the other is version of seed stitch. I will find out which he likes better and go in that direction for the next pair. Since he does not like high socks, I have significant yarn left over. All of them have asked for hand-warmers, so those are next on the small things to knit list.
