Well, I woke up wrapped in my comforter (feather beds for winter, a lighter insert for summer) and wandered down the hall to find my Oma, who was almost always in the kitchen. She might be drinking coffee or doing a crossword puzzle, maybe prepping a few things for lunch time already.

Sometimes she would go to the bakery and bring me soft, fresh Brötchen for my breakfast, or if she had done that the day before, she'd warm one up for me in the oven (aufbacken). I preferred Nutella on my Brötchen - but sometimes also had real butter and Marmelade or honey. Occasionally, I'd have a slice of my Oma's ever-present, favorite Streuselkuchen (crumb cake) instead. Very occasoinally, I'd have a boiled egg, always served in an egg cup (Eierbecher - see above pic)

And finally, it was time to get dressed and brush teeth and hair. By then, my Opa was probably ready to take a walk to his garden, or sometimes we'd get the bicycles out from the cellar. On the way, we'd pick dandelions to take as a treat for his rabbits. Sometimes we'd ride our bikes by the nearby Nidda, a small tributary of the Main River. And we'd probably be out until time to come home for lunch.
But more about that another day ...
