In this busy busy world it is important

Don’t Worry

Standard

We all have our worries from time to time and

I always have to remind myself that things will work out.

We need to have faith.

In Luke 25 verse 12 it says:

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?

Here are some more reminders for you,

and I wish you a worry free day!

 

worry1

 

Sometimes you have to stop worrying,

wondering and doubting.

Have faith that things will work out,

maybe not how you planned,

but just how it’s meant to be.

 

worry2

 

 

worry3

 

Every struggle in your life has shaped you

in to the person that you are today.

Be thankful for the hard times;

they can only make you stronger.

 

worry

 

Enjoy the good in each moment,

and have a wonderful day!

 

Welcome July! – Live Life!

July means Summer.

July means sun.

July means warmth.

Yes, we get out more in July.

So be aware of the wonderful present which is your life!

Guestpost: Thomas update

Standard

Hello all furry friends, and all blog readers,

I needed to update you all quickly, while the computer is on.

After a long time of finding all different places to rest and sleep,

like

a tight cardboard box

 Sometimes a bigger one….

The empty suitcase after a trip….

catbed3

the lap of course….

my food giver finally got the message…..

She ordered a soft basket bed for me to sleep in:

 

catbed

I can’t wait until it will be delivered.

As it is very often rainy, I prefer to be indoors.

Don’t get me wrong, I am out and about when it is dry,

but the British Summer is true to its’ reputation. Wet and windy.

So I can snuggle into my new bed and enjoy my naps, rest and sleep.

Purrrrrfect

 

My Garden Heaven

Standard

Come with me in my little garden.

Small but so enjoyable and beautiful.

Enjoy the small things and see the beauty in it.

My strawberries are coming so lovely this year.

GARDEN jUNE2016 (1)

 

They are bigger in size, as we had lots of rain,

still not quite red as we do not have enough sun, but…..

All things grow with love!

Slowly they are getting red though, see for yourself:

Almost any garden,

if you see it at just the right moment,

can be confused with paradise.

Birthday and Rainforest

Standard

I have been away to celebrate my mum’s 90th birthday.

My mum deserved a great Birthday Party.

She is doing well and could enjoy everything to the full.

We had a lovely celebration, great food ,

lovely company and everyone was happy.

Never forget to tell your loved ones that you love them.

❤❤❤

While we were there, we visited the Rainforest there too.

Urahcer Wasserfall (1)

Yes, it was in Germany,

still we walked through the forest

and it rained heavily.:-)

At the end of the walk we were rewarded

with the view of the local waterfall.

Urahcer Wasserfall (3)

The Uracher Wasserfall

falls 37 meters down and had lots of water as it had rained a lot before.

Urahcer Wasserfall (10)

 

You cannot drive to the waterfall but have to walk as there is a conservation area around it. It is beautiful to walk through the forest, and only hear the birds, the splashing of the little stream next to you and then the tossing of the waterfall.

As it is June everything is beautifully lush and green.

Here 2 pictures from my mum’s garden, I particularly like.

What a perfect rose!

Welcome June – See the bright side

Standard

June is the month with the most daylight hours.

It is a bright month.

A summery month.

So whatever you do ,

see things in a bright light,

Be full of optimism,

Look at the bright side.

Life is easier and less complicated that way.

It was June, and the world smelled of roses.

The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.”

Very close to the former Olympic Village which is now called East Village,

there are some lovely parks and many green spaces.

This is 15 minutes from my home away.

On my walk I found this today:

East Village and the RSPB ( Royal Society for the protection of birds)

have joined up with local carpenter Pete Bagg

to create 10 London skyline inspired bird boxes

to help bring birds back to the capital.

 

birdboxes (15)

 

Wonderfully done.

I have a picture of the original London Landmark

combined with the bird box.

See for yourself.

What a fantastic idea.

The boxes are displayed for one month here

before each box is moved to its permanent home

at green locations around the area.

Let the birds come…..
