Last Barbeque

Last evening, Mausi and I enjoyed a delicious barbeque, possibly the last of this summer. It was a beautiful evening, cool in the garden with a light breeze just disturbing the leaves and pleasantly mild. The meat, a lamb steak for Mausi and the Rumpsteak for me, came from our local butcher, Herr Wüst. His meat is superb, full of flavour and precoated with his special BBQ marinade.

Glasses of "Federweißer," a drink of semi-fermented grape juice available only at this season, superb meat and a great salad accompanied by a seeded bread - perfect end to a lovely day in which we have managed to get a lot done in the garden, cleaned the house, oiled the outside wood furniture in preparation for winter. The nights are much cooler now, even though the mountains here are not that high and the garden is looking good, though we still have a huge amount of work to do.

Watching the Red Kites and the kestrels patrolling and hunting overhead as the sun slowly vanishes behind the mountains bordering the Rhine is a great way to end a day.
