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….

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:

I love my garden and am very grateful for this little oasis.

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

 

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.”

Make your new month, as bright as sun,

as colorful as rainbow,

as lovely as flowers,

as happy as birds.

Enjoy the month to its full extent!

Happy New Month June!
