365/328 + 365/329 + 365/330 + 365/331 + 365/332

The week was too busy for taking pictures and my thoughts where miles away - so all my pictures in this post are from day 332 (except the one from day 229).

My elder son had a swimming competition in Erfurt this weekend. I accompanied him, to visit the historic center of Erfurt.

Saturday 28.11.2009 Day 332

The indoor swimming bath in Erfurt

My younger son also had a swimming competition in another town. He was accompanied by his father. My younger son got three medals --> gold for back stroke and freestyle and silver for breast stroke.

The rivalry by the competition of my elder son, was far too big - so he´ll probably get only one medal for butterfly. We didn´t know it yet, because the competition still continues until Sunday evening. But we know that he improved all his time performances. Nothing else matters.

Turkish honey

I found Turkish honey on Erfurt´s Christmas market (on Saturday day 332). For me it´s a childhood memory and I know my passed away mother loved it.

What a beautiful church and stained glass window.
Congrats to your sons on doing well again!
You asked about Black Friday. That's what they call the day after Thanksgiving here, because so many people go out and shop that it puts the shops in the black!

Your sons seem so good at swimming. And they swim year-round?

I love the photos of the church and the stained glass windows! Your breakfast looked amazing.

When I see my mom's favorite foods, it triggers memories of my mom for me too.
