In Münster, Saturday is market day, and all good wives and mothers are out buying goods for the next day's hot meal. There is also a drop in centre right outside the market for children so the parents can shop in peace for up to three hours. It really is peaceful.
I had some German recipes translated and hit the market with my list. On that list was savoy cabbage. Soon after coming home, the girls decided that we should take some cabbage and carrots to the bunny patch the next day and give those little guys a treat.
So today, Sunday, with nothing else to do but go out in the pouring rain (have I mentioned how much it rains in Münster before?) we went and fed the bunnies. We crawled through the low shrubbery that the bunnies hide out in and scattered the leaves and carrots and we waited. And waited. No bunnies came but it was so nice to just have the girls sit still under the canopy of a shrub and listen to the rain all around us.
On our way home we stopped in at the chocolate cafe to warm up with hot chocolate and croissants. It was nice. Perhaps I've been too hard on German Sundays? With a little bit of imagination, we had a perfect day of rest.
