7 Quick Takes Friday

The other night I was relaying a story to my husband about yelling my son's name in a grocery store because he was not where he was supposed to be (next to me). I told the story in the kitchen, mimicking my grocery store tone, "George! George!" Until a feeble, but obedient, "What??" from the stairs came floating down... That's right. George was up. Sitting on the stairs. Listening to us chat. And I had unknowingly called him out. Hah! Mom win.
I ran across a diagram of what's legally required for your bicycle in Germany. I don't know how up-to-date this one is, but I'll tell you one thing: Germans are serious about bicycles. Everyone has them. Everyone uses them. And apparently, they're serious about how to stay safe on them. #GetReflective
Check this out! It's a way to "Find a Friend" who knows the language you want to learn and who wants to learn your language. You can contact them directly and it's called being a "Tandem Partner". You help each other by speaking both languages. If I put my post code, there are about 30 people--including one couple who posted together. The internet is amazing.

We are staring directly at a weekend with temperatures in the high 50s, low 60s and sunshine. I'm giddy. I hope I spend hours in the sun. One cool thing about our house is that our bedroom faces South, so in the afternoon on a Saturday, when it's sunny, the wall of glass doors allows the sun to shine directly on my napping spot. It's... indulgent. :)
