Good morning.
 
Morning!
 
Good morning!
How are you doing, did the spring reach your mountain?
 
It did. Then we lost it.
Chance of snow today.
High of 45.
On the plus side- it looks like it's going to be a wet year.
That's always welcome in the desert.
How are Austin and Germany this morning?
 
Germany also had a cold spell after a week of short skirt weather before Easter. Still rather cool, but slowly getting better, at least here in Heidelberg. I heard they had to shovel snow on Easter Monday in Munich.
 
@Sobachatina :( Sorry. It's going to be in the upper 80s here.
 
4:34 PM
and there is still a sea of flowers and tree blossoms everywhere (magnolias are long through, though)
 
@Catija Nothing to be sorry for. You are getting to the end of the pleasant season in Austin.
Feb to May was my favorite time there.
 
Yeah, it's been a really nice spring. :)
 
Cool, green, wildflowers.
 
Crazy amounts of wildflowers with all the rain we've gotten.
 
@Sobachatina if you scroll a bit up, you will see something nice (although not that many flowers)
I signed my rent contract yesterday and used the occasion to take a few pictures from area which didn't seem too personal for the current tennant
 
4:58 PM
@rumtscho That's lovely! The view looks nice.
 
@Sobachatina I overlooked a lot of my "must haves" just because of the location (view + forest nearby)
still slightly agonizing over the decision, in fact. But I think it will turn out OK in the end. I simply need the right furniture to be able to stash all the stuff I have.
 
My little brother moved nearby recently and bought my son a fishing pole.
So now I have to learn how to fish and find out where to go so I'm not a bad father. :/
I don't mind that much- it seems interesting- I just haven't fished since I was a kid.
 
You don't have to live up to all stereotypes you come across to be a good father!
 
Thank you.
I know. It's not the stereotype. My son just really wants to do it.
 
But if he already has the fishing pole and wants to fish... oops sniped
 
5:03 PM
I wish he liked programming in a dark room, alone. That would be quality bonding time.
 
:)
 
I found out there's a city park with a small lake that is stocked a couple miles from our house. I'll take him if it ever stops raining.
 
you are in the desert, so there is hope
 
True. The rain will stop.
 
I'm going to run now, it is 7 PM here, really time to finish the workday.
 
5:09 PM
:) Nice chatting with you.
Have a nice evening.
 
I'm sure I will. Have a nice day too!
