“We’re unable to go out, so many of us go in.

Sleep, recharge, pray, meditate, journal.

Reflect on what’s important and what makes us truly happy.

To many, it’s a transition from survival to living.

During times of pain, we are invited to learn new ways of being—to do less and be more.

To reconnect with our true human nature.”

~Sara Fabian

 

Here is what I have been doing last week:

completed another puzzle:

Sorted out all my CD’s,

Created a Mini Green house out of CD cases, to recycle them

as I found a picture on Pinterest.

I can open the roof as seen on the bottom right picture.

 

Baked Chocolate Brownie as per Sally’s recipe.

They are super delicious.

Write in my Gratitude journal from Francois.

It brings me so much joy.

Here is the link for the new one, he just created.

 

Painted some walls to the Bathroom

and exercised/ danced, meditated, read books and much more

I leave you with an upbeat song I dance to,

Dance along with me and have a good and safe week ♥♥♥

 

Garden Art

During my visit in my garden – Mini Kew

I didn’t show you all my handmade art

which makes my garden more colourful.

Different Wind chimes, made with beads

made with shells

more beads

Brush lettering on wood

These give me smiles and happiness in my garden.

I am so grateful to have such a wonderful oasis,

to have nature so close to me.

 

Wishing you all a good and safe weekend ♥

Kew Garden at home

Standard

Kew Gardens is closed.

So I look around and

look:

I found my own ‘Kew’ Gardens right here:

When you enter you find beautiful colours and shapes:

Following through there is the palm garden with

3 different palm ‘trees’

Continuing the path you see different greens

Then we come to the Bonsai Trees Section, there is a Chestnut and a Maw Bonsai in the making.

And finally to the Alpine house, where we find this:

I hope you enjoyed the tour through Ute’s Kew.

 

Wishing you a blessed Easter weekend!

Keep the distance and stay healthy!

Colour splash

Standard

A neighbour of mine has a hedge of ‘Red Tip Photonia’

Now is the time where it really grows.

It grows with very vibrant red leaves,

they shine beautifully in the sun.

If you truly love nature,

you will find beauty everywhere.

Vincent van Gogh.

A welcome beauty right now.

Find positive things,

see the good, see the beauty.

It is a challenging time.

Be well friends ♥

Hello April!

Standard

Welcome April !

The Motto for April is:

Plant seeds of love everywhere you go!

It is so important.

We cannot hug or be close,

but we can show our love in different ways.

Stay connected,

support each other,

with words,

show you care.

Stay strong, stay focused,

and continue to follow the rules of your government.

We can do it together.

A big thank you to all the people on the front line,

who keep everything going.

You are amazing in what you do.

 

Sending you sincere cyber hugs, thinking of you,

praying for you.

 

Have a safe April!
