Welcome to my blog! I am having a lazy Sunday, enjoying my day off, no kids, no grandchildren, no plans - the total difference from my usual days.
I am a grandmother of four little ones, the mother of three wonderful happy adults, who are all married to - and this sounds cliche but isn't - wonderful people. Yes, sometimes there are differences, but we all remember we are a family and work hard at keeping our relationships happy.
The 'Oma' part in my blog is the German word for grandmother, or Gramdma. I am born and raised in Germany, and after living almost 40 years here in this country, my accent still gets picked up and mentioned. I grew up in the Rhine River area, on the left side, between Bingen and Koblenz. My personal opinion is that it is one of the more beautiful areas of Germany... but then it's home.
The New Jersey part is because I live, you guessed it, in NJ. In Northern New Jersey. Yes, you all can joke about it, but I love it. It looks very much like the area I grew up in, hills, curves, snow, rain, hot sometimes, and straight forward.
Today is a mellow, almost spring-warm day here, I went for my walk and am making a corned beef with cabbage in the crock pot (slow cooker now), for a friend of mine and myself.
Enjoy your day!
