Hi all! Sorry for the lack of posts recently. Katie and I have been enjoying a rather uneventful couple of weeks in Munich after spending good parts of the last few months traveling. We decided to give our budgets and our bodies a rest by laying low in advance of our trip to the States later this week.
And you know what? It’s been really nice!
Two weekends ago we went to the Auer Dult festival — it takes place three times a year in Munich and it’s kind of like a mini (very mini) Wisconsin State Fair. This past weekend we went to a Wine Festival in the English Gardens. And both weekends we spent a good chunk of time walking and biking through the English Gardens. With a trip to the U.S. looming and then a slew of visitors in September, we figured this would be the last time we’d be able to enjoy the gardens just the two of us until cooler weather in October.
We also started a little happy hour tradition. Almost every work day these past couple of weeks we’ve walked to a new beer garden to enjoy a post-work, pre-dinner weiss beer and a few games of cards. It’s allowed us to see some new parts of the city and has reminded us how much we absolutely love their beer.
While Katie’s been busy with her regular work, I’ve been keeping busy with two big projects: 1) a re-design of holymeasures.com (which I just completed and will now work with our programmer on getting it to work) and 2) the new album! I’ve started laying the ground work for an autumn spent recording – much of which will be done long distance thanks to the wonder of technology. The hope is to have it wrapped up by the end of the calendar year.
That’s really all we’ve got. Just wanted to write and say that we’re still here. And we’re looking forward to seeing many of you during our two weeks home beginning on Friday! We’ll write a bit more on that before we fly out.
