We invited our landlord’s parents over for coffee and cake – which has always been my favorite German tradition; and as with every new rental house of ours I always took photos of our new home once it was all set up – this view was of our living room.
Looking from the living room towards the back of the house, this was our dining room with the table set for coffee and cake.
The dark wood floors and ceilings darkened the house even in the daytime, but at the same time they made the house very cozy or, “gemutliche;” here my wife baked two cakes and made fresh whipped cream for the occasion.
It always takes a lot of work and effort to move from one house to another, and we would have never believed that we would only have nine months of living in this home before having to move again.
Our landlord’s parents and David wait for me to finish with the pictures before we start our coffee and cake, and now years later I’m glad that I took lots of photos in those years.
Our landlord’s mother was a very warm and sweet woman and you can tell from this photo that she was very mumsy; instead of slowing down, she and her husband were always working in the orchard and garden behind our house.
