Picture of the Week #47


As Winter and Christmas is coming, it is getting colder.

My Christmas cactus seems to know it too.

I brought it in as it has buds again this year.

Food for thought

Cold tea and cold rice is bearable, 
but cold looks and cold words are not. 

One kind word can warm three winter months.

My latest project – recycling at home


Finding many old beautiful books

which nobody wanted

I searched everywhere what to do with them.

I found an idea on Pinterest, so I tried it.

I made 2 bedside tables out of the most beautiful books.

Finished with 2 beautiful Piano music sheet books

from my Grandad as table tops.

I’m happy to have still the old books,

we all read long ago

in my present house.

Have you recycled or upcycled something lately? Let me know…

Mimi update.

The buds are now blooming, and I counted 11 blooms this morning.

It feels just like in Kew Gardens.

I am overjoyed.

Food for thought

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. 
Never make a negative decision in the low time. 
Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. 
Be patient. 
The storm will pass. 
The spring will come.
