Thank GOd for the weekend, thank GOd for the vacancy, one week without driving, and without them lovely children – what a blessing !
I slept very badly over the last nights, on Friday morning I missed my motorway exit road (it cost me less than ten minutes, because it happened within a construction called “Autobahnkreuz West” with the next possible exit in easy reach) – I blame my tiredness, and the fog. I was driving through fog every damn morning last week, and it was fat, sticking, sun-resistant Franconian quality fog, not that flimsy imported nonsense, ha !
At least I had a co-driver this week. A colleague realised that I was driving alone now for a month (or more ?), so he volunteered to come with me. He started five or six years ago with the organisation, and I was the first he accompanied, and introduced him to the job. I am very thankful, a great gesture. After the vacancy he will return to his own vehicle, and I wonder seriously whether my regular companion will show up ever again.
On Tuesday I have to attend a mandatory class (First Aid & stuff), later I will go to Middle Franconia, and finally Suebia. So it is absolutely essential to do absolutely nothing today and tomorrow. With the exception of cooking, there looms another soup.
And while the stuff is cooking, there is time for a little Bourée (d’Avignon) composed by Nicolas VALLET (1583-1642) (Ger., Eng.) performed by Valéry SAUVAGE. (Here is a version by Paul O’DETTE, here the piece is performed by an ensemble, aptly named “Banquet du Roy”.) I hope you enjoy the music. May we all face a relaxing and peaceful week !
